All over the world people are coping one way or another with Covid-19. Some people have managed to escape it, some have a mild case and others have succumbed to it. The media is top heavy with this news, making life quite uncomfortable in many respects. Today’s hymn is meant to bring some peace of mind. I pray it works for you. Happy Sunday.
In the summer of 1999 I heard the hymn. I the Lord of Sea and Sky. I’m sure I had heard it many times before , but this particular time it touched my heart and brought tears to my eyes. I had just retired from business and wondered, ‘what next’. It didn’t happen overnight but gradually my life became that of caregiver, prayer giver, Elder, and whatever else God laid on my heart to do. It is 2020 and I am still holding His people in my heart. TYG. Happy Sunday.
One of the most meaningful hymns in my life at one time was “Here I Am, Lord.” It touched my heart and led me into a life of serving God’s people in a way I had never before experienced. When we say, “Send me” many doors open into a world in need of friendship and caring. Happy Sunday.
To me, this is one of the most reassuring hymns ever written. It gives me hope and the promise of my destiny which relieves any fears I might entertain. Happy Sunday.
How many times do we need someone to lean on but there just isn’t anyone around. When that happens we can know that there are always those Everlasting Arms. Happy Sunday.
He was a new member of our choir when he offered a solo rendition of How Great Thou Art. The strong, mellow baritone voice filled the sanctuary with sonerous sounds and a feeling of awe.
On Friday a gathering of friends, family and church family sang this very hymn in honor of yet another of our members who left us to sing in Heaven’s choir, after many years of loyal service in our church.
Laurie will be so missed by so many and I, for one, could feel his presence on Friday as we sang his favorite hymn, How Great Thou Art.
One cannot help praising the Lord when something like this comes along. Psalm 96:1 says, “Sing to the Lord a new song”… Enjoy your Sunday.
