Music That Matters - Celebrate You

Today we wrap up the theme of friendship with Steven Curtis Chapman's "Celebrate You" from his Signs of Life CD. Continuing on yesterday's thought, Music Chick continues her reflection:

Likewise, when we give and never take, then we never allow our friends to give and show their friendship for us, and that is as selfish and unjust as always taking and never giving. And, in many cases, I find that it takes more strength for me to show my weakness to my friends than to be a source of strength for them.

Steven Curtis Chapman
Album - Signs of Life

I'm no stranger to your gentle reminders
That the world does not revolve around me
But no sooner have you spoken the words
Then your love comes once again to surround me
And every time I look in your eyes
I see the reflections of myself
But this time I want to look deeper
And see you and nobody else

So, tell me what you think, and tell me what you feel
I want to hear the thunder I'm so quick to steal
Listen to the dreams you're dreaming and celebrate you
Let me show you what a treasure you are
A priceless gift from heaven to this thankful heart
I want to take this lifetime to celebrate you
I want to celebrate you

I have heard you say so many times
How you're sorry you're not everything you should be
So let me tell you this one more time
There's no way you could be any more precious to me
But I know that lovely flowers and phrases
Are not what you need the most from me
You're longing for someone to listen
And that's what I want to learn how to be

I want to share your laughter
And I want to share your tears
We're gonna share this life together
And I'm gonna celebrate you
Celebrate you
