"Anyway" - Father's Day Tribute Song

Dad




















My sister, MLC, (she's the middle one in this picture) sang this SONG at church for Father's Day three Sunday's ago (June 17th). We lost our father last December 21st.
I wish I could have been there....... She told the congregation that this is how Dad told her to live her life, make her own name, a good name and do what she thinks is right..... anyway.

Anyway
You can spend your whole life buildin' - Somethin' from nothin' - One storm can come and blow it all away - Build it anyway

You can chase a dream - That seems so out of reach - And you know it might not ever come your way - Dream it anyway
(Chorus)
God is great, but sometimes life ain't good - When I pray it doesn't always turn out like I think it should - But I do it anyway - I do it anyway

This world's gone crazy and it's hard to believe - That tomorrow will be better than today - Believe it anyway - You can love someone with all your heart - For all the right reasons - And in a moment they can choose to walk away - Love 'em anyway
(Repeat Chorus)

You can pour your soul out singin' - A song you believe in - That tomorrow they'll forget you ever sang - Sing it anyway - Yeah sing it anyway - I sing - I dream - I love anyway

I don't know what it's like to lose a father, but I think it must be very hard and painful. That song is a beautiful tribute. I think he would have loved it, and probably it made him proud to hear it from where he is.

What a beautiful tribute to your dad. Thanks for sharing that.


I'll try to find the website that will turn photo's into patterns and send it to you....do you cross stitch or know anyone who does. It is not a transfer it is counted cross stitch.

Thanks for the link to your churches backyard mission, I'll have to go check it out. I think our church should do something like this. Kudos to your church family.

Al & Ford, I haven't been visiting your blog lately, #1 no computer & #2, just trying to keep sane.....Singing "that" particualr song was an awesome experience & very easy beacause Dad is & was my hero. I know we have chatted & may have some difference of opinions, but all the folk I have come across can't express enough about thier tributes & love towards Dad, waht an incredible feeling for me to know JUST how many people he did affect wonderfully, that's what gets me thru it all.........all my LOVE!!!!!
