"In My Heart There Rings A Melody"

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!

    You've been singing because you decided to be Pollyanna! :) Quiet moments are certainly few and far between aren't they? I enjoy every single one that I get!

    Blessings today friend!

    I also like verse # 3:

    Take time to be holy, Let Him be thy guide,
    And run not before Him whatever betide;
    In joy or in sorrow still follow thy Lord,
    And, looking to Jesus, still trust in His Word.


    It reminds me that regardless what is going on in my life that I need to trust him!

    All in all that is a great song.
    Glad you are having a great, joyful day!

    I like that song! Now it is stuck in my head! There are far too many hymns I love! :)

    I've been praising the Lord in song a lot the past few days, too! But I'm a little too young to know many hymns. We do have a hymnal, and occasionally I go through it and try to learn a new song. So many hymns have such great words.

    Keep singing and praising! And thanks for your prayers!
