Hello World



In the midst of the battle raging around me, when I feel like I can’t face another day, I listen to the words of this song and remember what matters most in my life…a little girl named Emma.  One smile from her sweet face and the light and hope surrounds me once again … hello world!


Traffic crawls, cell phone calls
Talk radio screams at me through my tinted window I see
A little girl, rust red minivan, shes got chocolate on her face
Got little hands and she waves at me
Yeah, she smiles at me

Well, hello world
How you been
Good to see you, my old friend
Sometimes I feel cold as steel
Broken like Im never gonna heal
And I see a light, a little hope in a little girl
Hello world

Every day I drive by a little white church
Its got these little white crosses
Like angels in the yard
Maybe I should stop on in, say a prayer
Maybe talk to God like he is there
Oh, I know hes there
Yeah, I know hes there

Well hello world
How you been
Good to see you, my old friend
Sometimes I feel as cold as steel
And broken like Im never gonna heal
And I see a light, a little grace, a little faith unfurls
Well hello world

Sometimes I forget what livings for
And I hear my life through my front door
And I breathe it in
Oh, Im home again
And I see my life
 and a little girl
Hello world
Hello world

Well the empty disappears
I remember why Im here
Just surrender and believe
I fall down on my knees
Well hello world
Hello world
Hello world

Dedicated to my little Emma Bean…may I never lose sight of the beatiful gift I’ve been given!

    Rhonda , you have a beautiful little girl who loves you, and Emma has a mom who loves her dearly. I hope and pray that you can both draw strength from one another. You are never alone. God knows your pain and in time the wounds will heal. It is hard , real hard but you will see the light at the end of the tunnel. Never give up. Take a day at a time. You can do this , with God\’s help. He is always with you, He never leaves you. He loves you. You are in my thoughts and prayers.Love and HugsDianne 🙂

    I know the feeling my friend. I\’ve been so relieved when the waves come crashing down and I look to my family to be God\’s visible blessing to me each and every day. It\’s great to hear from you!

    She is beautiful, Rhonda but you already know that. Dianne is right; you are never alone. She is also right when she says to NEVER give up. We are also here for you, Homegirl.

    Dear Rhonda, That is the cutest photo ever of Emma! She\’s grown so much and looks as pretty as ever. I can relate to you here in many ways. My son has helped me through some very tuff times and that\’s what keeps me going along with the strength of the LORD. He will not leave you comfortless and He will make a way for you. Can\’t seem to buy Lady Antebellum albums over here and I\’m not sure why. Special love and hugs to you and Emma Bean. God bless you both! Love from Kerrie. xXx

    True strength isn\’t winning every battle, but getting knocked down and having the courage to stand back up, dust yourself off and carry on. Somehow… I just know, that as long as the two of you are holding on to each other, you will make it thru this and any other obstacle that gets thrown in your path. I have never taken you for a quitter Rhonda, so don\’t disappoint me now. :o)

    Hi Rhonda – Thinking of you. Guess what? Lady Antebellum toured over here with Keith Urban and finally we can now buy their album over here. Just came out on sale this week. Yippee! Thought I\’d share that with you, as last time I was here we couldn\’t buy their album. Sending You and little Emma Bean much love and wishing you both a wonderful weekend. God bless you. With loving care from Kerrie. xXX
