She Lives in Me



Ever since last week when we saw the Lion King, this song has been constantly being played in my head. When it was performed I couldn't help but hold back tears. I have found that when I look in the mirror, I can see Preslie looking back at me. I think it is just another example of a tender mercy from God, to have had Preslie look like me.

They Live in You

Ingonyama nengw' enamabala

Night
And the spirit of life calling
Mamela
And a voice
With the fear of a child asking
Mamela

Wait
There's no mountain too great
Hear these words and have faith
Have faith

They live in you
They live in me
They're watching over
Everything we see
In every creature
In every star
In your reflection
They live in you

They live in you
They live in me
They're watching over
Everything we see
In every creature
In every star
In your reflection
They live in you

Your mommy and daddy love and miss you our angel Preslie.

Yah it was horrible opening up that insurance bill today. Just horrible.

I would give anything to go see the Lion King again. Jason and I both teared up when it was all about the father/son parts.

Thank you for passing on my blog to her I would love to talk to her. *hugs*

That's really a beautiful song that I never really thought about.

We thought about you a lot during conference with all the talks of trials. You've been through so much and you are so strong.

I love that too, when I look at my pictures of Cora. I love that I know she is alive in my memory of her. I'm so glad that you can see her in your reflection.

((hugs))

I've been loving your angel pictures on your posts by the way!

She looked so much like you and was absolutely beautiful. And I'm so glad for you that you have that every time you look in the mirror.

LOVE the angel pictures! You are so right, she does live in you, around you, with you...I pray this Easter you both feel the peace that our Savior so willingly gives us all...the peace that He died for us so we could all get through this life and be with our families and our Heavenly Father again. He rose again, just as well all will, together...you and your sweet Preslie and us and ours! My love to you my friend this Easter and alway!

The words in the song are so beautiful. So many simple things take on new meaning now. Thank you for sharing.

Thanks for sharing this. This is crazy because I wanted to share some lyrics fom Lion King 2 with you about a month ago but didn't. Maybe I was inspired to wait until you saw the show recently? Who knows. HaHa. But after reading that you see Preslie in YOU reminds me of a song from Lion King 2 that I watched on youtube with Taylor. The song is called "We Are One"

*HUGS*
