Choosing Songs for Daughter's Graduation

Wow, the number of decisions for my first child graduating is getting ever larger!!! Right now I'm trying to figure out which song(s) to use for her grad party. I've been creating a list on my cell phone when listening to the radio in my van. So far these are the songs:

My Wish by Rascal Flatts
It Won't be Like This for Long by Darius Rucker

Any of you who have had a child graduate or if you're getting close to your child graduating, I know you'll have an appreciation for this song. Thinking about my baby graduating has been super hard.

I just sent her a txt the other day while she was at her BPA competition (which she made it to Nationals) telling her that I'd be ok if she went to Abilene Christian College in TX. I could've died sending that message to her, but I had peace doing it.

Anyone with younger kids, I know the days when it's really hard, it's hard to find positive things in your life. Remember, those moments don't last long. Not only that, your children being little won't last long either. That's the catch of it all!!

I think maybe I'll use Darius Rucker's (Hootie and the Blowfish) song for a recap of Brie's life and see if our Worship Leader will sing Rascall Flat's song at her grad party.

Anyone have any opinions or know of any songs? I know there's a country song that has the words, "Give me wings" but I can't find it anywhere. Anybody know that song? ~Blessings

Hi! Stephen Curtis Chapman has a couple of good songs (but they're older): "Fingerprints of God" and "I Believe In You." By the way, I gave you an award at my blog today!

I love the one "I hope you dance"!Can't remember who sings it off the top of my head and too lazy to open itunes! But it is a good one!
