Song Description

Each of us is floating down a calm flowing river of life that has bends in it and maybe even rapids but is flowing towards the sea where it ends. Nikki Hornsby sees her life as always reaching up towards God through all tribulations for help and gratefulness for good times as she holds her heart in her open hand towards the world as she knows This River Bends.

Story Behind the Song

Nikki drew the cover art of the CD when she was in college and the music was written when she was thinking of how life is like a river. The drawing partly inspired her to write "This River Bends" regarding a simple view of life.
