New Website Launched!

Yay! The day finally came! I'm so excited to have my new website up. You can check it out here: www.bethanyf.com

Many of you have asked who that is singing on my site and it's my all time favorite - Rita Springer! Her music has been very instrumental in my life - no pun intended! :) I love her lyrics, her passion and her beautiful, beautiful heart! My three favorite albums of hers are All I Have, Created to Worship, & Effortless. www.ritaspringer.com

At a heartbreaking time in my life, when we lost our first baby Melaina, (I was 22 weeks pregnant with her when my water broke and during delivery she went home to be with Jesus) one of Rita's songs was so powerful in bringing healing. The beautiful lyrics are:

Holy, You are still holy
Even when the darkness surrounds my life
Sovereign, You are still sovereign
Even when confusion has blinded my eyes

Lord, I don't deserve Your kind affection
When my unbelief has kept me from Your touch
I want my life to be a pure reflection
Of Your love

And so I come into Your chamber
And I dance at Your feet, Lord
You are my Saviour
And I'm at Your mercy
All that has been in my life
Up 'til now
It belongs to You
You are still holy

Holy, You are still holy
Even though I don't understand Your ways
Sovereign, You will be sovereign
Even when my circumstances don't change

Lord, I don't deserve your tender patience
When my unbelief has kept me from Your truth
I want my life to be a sweet devotion
To You

And so I come into Your chamber
And I dance at Your feet, Lord
You are my Saviour
And I'm at Your mercy
All that has been in my life
Up 'til now
It belongs to You
I belong to You
