I came to know the singer Plumb a few short years ago. This particular song would play on the radio, and I was immediately entranced in the lyrics. There was talk of baby blue eyes and curly cues that, of course, made me think of my darling daughter who was only three years old at the time.
This song came at the right time, too, and was used as a tribute to my oldest daughter’s friend, Sydney, who was fighting a rare form of cancer in 6th grade. I’ll never forget my daughter being new to this school and rightly self conscious as she entered the classroom to take her seat amongst the new faces that would be her classmates that school year. No one spoke to my darling daughter as she made her way to a nearby seat.
Finally this blonde haired, blue eyed girl spoke up, “Hi, I’m Sydney. Would you like to sit with me?”
Oh thank God for Sydney!
My daughter did take her seat beside her new friend not knowing at that point in time that later in the school year my daughter would feel such a burning in her heart to help her newly diagnosed friend. We contacted our pastor and began working on fundraisers for Sydney, with Plumbs’ song on the video as beautiful pictures of a healthier Sydney were displayed on the overhead screen for the entire church congregation to see.
Yes, this is how I first came to know of Plumb. The perfectly written song that made me think of my youngest daughter with the eyes and the hair, while also thinking of my desire to protect my daughters from the raging storms in life. The very same song Sydney’s mother chose as a tribute to her daughter. So touching, so moving as the words of Safe In My Arms played as picture after picture was displayed of Sydney through the years.
Now Plumb, also known as Tiffany Arbuckle Lee, has returned with another powerful and moving album entitled Exhale.
I was taken with this album right away as I placed it into my computer to listen at work on Monday morning. Glancing down, I noticed the message on the front cover and knew before hearing a single word that she sang that this album would touch hearts and bring you to your knees before the throne of God.
We do not exist for us but to share the grace and love given to us ALL. We breathe it in, it changes us and then we breathe it out, we share it. I have now breathed in deeply and it has changed me completely. It has healed my heart, restored my home and made me new. Because of that grace, there is ALWAYS hope! It’s oxygen. Breathe it in … and then, EXHALE.
Do you see the potential of such a powerful impact that this one little album could have?
And then … I clicked play on my desktop, and the words flowed straight to my ears and down into my heart.
The song Exhale reassures you that no matter what you have done, everyone is welcome in His arms!
Oh friend, don’t you see the impact that this could have if more people heard those words and soaked them into their hearts and souls? What a message of hope and redemption!
Come, child … It’s not too late. It doesn’t matter what you’ve done, who you are, all that matters is that you surrender now. Confess your sins and ask for forgiveness … it is yours. The Father WILL forgive you … come just as you are and breathe in deeply … feel the sin and shame leave your body as God forgives you, washes you white as snow, and makes you new! These are my words and what it makes me think of as the words on Plumbs’ album are slowly lifting themselves through the speaker and tucking themselves into my soul. I can’t keep it to myself. I have to share it with the world … and so I sit here typing as fast as my little fingers will fly … to share the message of Hope with YOU!
