I have no idea what the song is called but the chorus followed these lines:
it won't be like this forever...
It was referring to the children that we are blessed with to raise up. The song, however, was talking about these children growing up and leaving their parents behind. The verse that choked me up? The man singing describes how he dropped his daughter off for pre-school and she is clinging to his leg, begging him not to leave her there. Then, how the 'child care professional' pried the daughter away from her father and told him everything will be okay ...if you just leave. So...basically abandon your frightened three year old child with a complete stranger and eventually that child won't need you so much anymore.
That's North America today!
Well, I didn't actually cry when I heard the song, but I did pray. Giving thanks to the Lord for showing my husband and I how to stand on His Word and on our own; to say no to statism; to take full responsibility for our child's life; and to tell as many as who will listen - GO COUNTER-CULTURAL! Your children are depending on you.
Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous:
but the way of the ungodly shall perish.
