Mother's Day is just around the corner and, in many ways, it will be bitter sweet. It will be the first Mother's Day for my bride, as we had our son back in December, but it will also be the first Mother's Day without my Grandma.
I first wrote the song for a friend who lost his mom to cancer. The song since, with the loss of our Grandma and other friends, has taken on a new meaning for me. On a personal level, God has shown me that He is the only one who will satisfy any deep sense of longing that we feel. And even when we lose someone, there is a hope that we can cling to - 1 Thessalonians 4:13-14.
Though the song is sad, there is a greater message of hope that I pray encourages you or someone you know.
From now through Mother's Day (thanks to my Mom...as it was her idea:) 'The Sun Setting Low' will be available as a free download.
