about

Inspired by the innocent victims of Newtown.

I am grateful to Kim Deschamps for donating his time and adding the wonderful Dobro. Visit his link in the sidebar. He has played withLyle Lovett, Sarah McLachlan, Los Lobos, Cowboy Junkies, Barenaked Ladies, and many others.

This is a FREE download. You can offer to pay any price and that money will go to the Wells Fargo account #3950025829 which is the Jessica Rekos Memorial Fund set up by her parents, Richard and Krista. Receipts from all donations (in increments of $100) will be posted on my site (see sidebar).

Her grand-aunt was a fellow high school alum and when she posted the news, the entire tragedy got personal for us. We couldn't help but see Jessica in all the pictures. But now, I think I know most of their names.

"Safe Within His Hands"

I saw their picture. Every one of them was smiling ear to ear
Surrounded by that love it was so clear

And now we’re richer that they had lived among us this short while
Even though we still hunger for their smile

And how can we imagine all this sorrow?
This life’s so hard sometimes to understand
We might make sense of these mysteries tomorrow
Until then I’m sure they’re safe within His Hands

I have a grandson and he could be a friend of each boy and girl
And when the questions come I’ll struggle and maybe say

It’s not my plan, son, that there is so much evil in this world
But I’ll do my best to keep you safe and warm today

And how can we imagine all this sorrow?
This life’s so hard sometimes to understand
We might make sense of these mysteries tomorrow
Until then I know we’re safe within His Hands

Even He begged “Take this cup away” and deal with it another day
It’s the hardest thing to say, “Thy will be done”.

When your life is full of pain and you feel tested
Just when courage and resolve are in demand
Let their smiling faces keep us all invested
And help us know we’re safe within His Hands


I saw their picture. Every one of them was smiling ear to ear
