Wow- I am not sure what is going on here this week!
The kids and I do a lot of singing together - at home, while we are driving, when we are cooking, and even on hikes.. but this week there is a "song in the air."
I sat on the porch for quite a long time this morning, rocking the baby, and watching it rain. While I had this quiet time alone with His Creation, I had one hymn after another come to my lips. I was able to worship so freely, and alone. The words to the songs became my prayers to the Lord, and I knew that HE had given me this time to spend with Him. Quiet time here is quite scarce, and usually occurs when I am so tired that I join the rest of the quiet sleeping family at bed time.
This was beautiful.
We have a few books that are written about the writers, and meanings of 100's of Hymns. If you ever have a chance, I would encourage to find some of these to read. They are amazing! We read them to our children when we teach them a new song.
"I have a song that Jesus gave me, It was sent from heav'n above
There never was a sweeter melody,
'Tis a melody of love."
"In my heart there rings a melody, There rings a melody - WITH HEAVEN'S HARMONY
In my heart there rings a melody,
There rings a melody of love!"
Today, songs have been on my lips all day. Some songs - hymns that I have not been singing in a long time are quick to come to my lips. Wow- this is a grand day.
If you have time today- Look up the second verse of 'Take Time to be Holy",, this verse is perfect for my day.
Psalm 103 -Bless the Lord, o my soul - And ALL that is within me - Bless His Holy Name!
*****If you have a favorite hymn, or scripture today, will you share it with me - it will keep me singing!!******
This was taken in my flower bed after the rain. Isn't is beautiful!
We can let God make our moments look like this picture!
