¬†Sunday afternoon play date. It is raining, sleeting, some snow, icky afternoon. Thank goodness we went to the early morning church service before all of this started. Hubby is watching ,what else, but the Nascar race, and I am just diddling. I love it, sometime you just have to get off the track race and sloooow down. Naturally I couldn’t resist my blog friends. Iris, at Sting My Heart had the cutest icon on her page, and told how to get it, so I just had to hop over and try it out, how cute! I enjoy her blog because she is so humble but very knowledgeable, blessings to her.

I have just found and have read 2 of Beverly Lewis’ novels. They are so refreshing to read. One was,”The Postcard, and the other was,”The Crossing”. It is a story of a young Amish girl that was tragically widowed, and how she found God’s grace through it. Wonderful.

. It makes you realize that they have their problems just the same as we do, but they solve their problems with God’s help, word, and prayer. Try and read them,you will receive a blessing.

WORSHIP

February 15, 2007

As I was watching a Gaither program tonight, I was struck with awe. Have you noticed that some of the songs just go straight to your heart?! As the camera pans around to the others singing, you can see the tears streaming down their faces, others have their faces uplifted and eyes closed. How is it that these songs have such an impact on us. It always amazes me how the holy spirit works. He is in everyone of these praise songs. The words are not just sung they are coming from within our heart, our very soul to worship our holy God. I know when I sing these songs, my eyes automatically close and my hand goes up, in worship. The fullness I feel inside is full worship for my Lord. Enough that¬† the tears just come. Oh how some of our churches are losing this. The ones that I have been visiting seem to think that the songs HAVE to be loud and certainly HAVE to have drums beating too. Now mind you I don’t mean to criticize but gee, how can you get into a worship mood when you are boogieing around?! How I wish there was some ole southern gospel music loving church around my area, I would faint dead away in AWE! But I will keep looking. In the mean time my CD will be on in the car, turning my eyes, and ears upon Jesus.
