Musings From A Musical Mind

The Recent Tragedies

A couple of weeks ago my husband did a memorial service for a 16-year-old girl who died tragically from a gun-shot wound.  And last night a young 17-year-old girl from the church body where we were on staff for 13 years – was killed in an automobile accident.

Both of these events – as well as many more this past year, seem senseless and hard to understand.  I can’t even begin to know the depth of sorrow that the family members and close friends are going through.  It is one of life’s biggest mysteries.  But I also believe that these lives are in God’s hands – and sometimes when you have no other explanation for things that happen – it is reassuring and comforting to know.

One of my favorite older Michael W. Smith songs is a song called ‘I hear Leesha’ – written about a young girl lost in a car accident.  It is reported that she was the younger of two sisters in the car – and the older one survived.  The older sister had a terrible time over the loss until she had a vision where she saw her sister in heaven telling her,”I’m okay”.  It’s a very moving and powerful song – especially if you’ve ever lost anyone close to you.

This song is dedicated to the families of these two girls – and I am praying that you will find comfort in your time of deepest darkness and sorrow.

God Bless


Seems like it was only yesterday
She was living here
Yea, she was living here
Lord knows why He’s taken her away
It isn’t very clear, no it isn’t very clear
Into every life a little rain must fall
And losing one you love is like a storm
But storms are passing
Chorus:
I hear Leesha
Singing in heaven tonight
And in between the sadness
I hear Leesha
Telling me that she’s alright
Life goes on even after life
That’s what I believe
Yea, that’s what I believe
Leesha’s gone, but she will still survive
In a memory that I’m keeping here with me
Silencing the voice of mortal tragedy
Listening to whispers of the soul
All is peaceful
