Closer to Love... Madison, Ashley, & Alex

Closer to Love...

What does that mean?

Madison Bradshaw had it on her blog and I listened to this song and it hit my heart so hard. If you listen to the lyrics they're incredible.

It actually made me think of three people...

One) Madison Bradshaw
She's incredible. She has such faith in our Lord, Jesus Christ. I look at her and I am so amazed by the way she is with all those around her and the trust she has in our Lord. She's so close to him and I miss her a lot. She's home in Washington now and I just blog stock her, but ya know. I feel very blessed to have ever known her.

Two) Ashley Akin
Ashley is one of my best friends in the entire world. You know I have a lot of best friends, but for some reason Ashley and I have always had this deep connection spiritually. I don't know what it is, but I am so proud of her! She got her mission call to Orlando, FL Mission! I know that she's going to do something incredible there! Heavenly Father needs here in Orlando and when she gets there they won't know what hit em, because she's a spiritual powerhouse!! I love her so much!


Three) Alex Christensen
Last, but not least, my eternal best friend. This song is so beautiful and it make me think of my husband. He helps bring me closer to my Heavenly Father and to my Savior. He makes me realize how important it is to rely on the atonement! He's got such an incredible spirit and he loves the Gospel so much. it's incredible I'm the luckiest girl ever. Really. You think I'm kidding, but he's such a rock in my life. I love him so much and I feel so blessed to have him. I thank Heavenly Father everyday for him. He's a Gift from My God to help me get back to him. Wow I love hiM!

So this song is first on my playlist so ya'll should listen to it. It's incredible. Here are they lyrics:

She got the call today
One out of the gray
And when the smoke cleared
It took her breath away
She said she didn't believe
It could happen to me
I guess we're all one phone call from our knees
We're gonna get there soon

If every building falls
And all the stars fade
We'll still be singing this song
The one they can't take away
I'm gonna get there soon
She's gonna be there too
Cryin' in her room
Prayin' Lord come through
We're gonna get there soon

Oh it's your life
Oh it's your way
Pull me out of the dark
Just to show me the way
Cryin out now
From so far away
You pull me closer to love
Closer to love

Meet me once again
Down off Lake Michigan
Where we could feel the storm blowin
Down with the wind
And don't apologize
For all the tears you've cried
You've been way too strong now for all your life

I'm gonna get there soon
You're gonna be there too
Cryin' in your room
Prayin' Lord come through
We're gonna get there soon

Oh it's your life
Oh it's your way
Pull me out of the dark
Just to show me the way
Cryin out now
From so far away
You pull me closer to love
Closer to love

Cause you are all that I've waited for
All of my life (We're gonna get there)
You are all that
I've waited for
All of my life

You pull me closer to love
hu huuh Closer to love
hu huuuh Pull me closer to love
You pull me closer to love
Closer to love oh no
Closer to love
Closer to love
Pull me closer to love
