Where We're Gonna Fly


This is a song that was inspired by
my  granddaughter,Tegan:


One day while sitting on the porch,
Tegan came out and pulled up a chair and
sat down beside me.
She said in her most grown up voice,
"Grammy", "Let's talk".
I said, "Okay, Tegan", "What shall we talk about?"
She said, "Let's talk about God, Grammy".
I said, "What about God, Tegan?"
She replied, "Grammy", "I just REALLY love God."
"Now", "Let's play hide and sink!"
(She always says sink instead of seek)
Another time we had a similar conversation
about her Great Grandma
who had recently gone to heaven.
Children always seem to bring up
the important things,
talk about them, and then with simple faith
just get on with life.
We can learn a lot from children.


(Grammy, Age 2)

Where We're Gonna Fly!

Grandma, please tell me about that beautiful place
Where nobody's fighting and I can see Jesus face
Will Great-Granny be there where we'll never die?
Will we be together where we're gonna fly?

(chorus) Up where the sun shines, no clouds in the sky
Where trouble can't find me and there's no reason to cry
Just like an eagle soaring on high
There's a brand new tomorrow...where I'm gonna fly.

You came by to see me, just like you said
You brought me a flower, a rose colored red
Don't look so sad, girl, this isn't good-bye
Someday you'll see me where I'm gonna fly.

Up where the sun shines, no clouds in the sky
Where trouble can't find us and there's no reason to cry
Just like an eagle soaring on high
We'll be together...where we're gonna fly
