Sharing a video this morning of a most beautiful song that Jem, (hubs) and I have grown rather fond of lately, we listen to this song in the car on our dates, the words are so exact and encouraging to my heart... Brave.
You want to run away and you say it can't be so...When you stand up and open your hand...
In the face of what I don't understand...
a reason to be brave..
We love music, I've played in the past, and Jem is a musician besides being a real estate broker in oldtown... In our home, music is a big deal.
This is such a great season of life. Life! But then when I see my dad and how his health is going...his choices... I must face what I don't understand. ... A reason to be brave. Hold on ...Time carries on...
I hope you too are blessed by this fantastic song...it's an old one but just as new to my heart today.
I love the symphony in this video, it gives me such a rush. ....The female musician with the big blonde curly hair is so great. I'm wearing my hair big and curly these days. Putting on my Stevie Nicks. : ) I like it, it's natural and it's me I'm finding... It's a nice feeling I do believe.
The composer in the video..He is composing with such fervor, such preciseness...such care. He reminds me of our Father, the Director of our Lives. The musicians watch His every move... His every quake and expression.
Heard an interview of Josh Groban the other afternoon, did you know he was bullied in school? He seemed quite humble actually in this interview, I'm glad I was able to see and hear it, he was not mister perfect at all, just a nice guy attractive in his imperfections and realness.
The other morning I was praying, so worn out from a long wearing drive to visit my father in rehab. I was sitting on the Father's lap so to speak and He reminded me of the little, sweet books I would read when I was a wee little girl as an only child, my quiet life, listening to the birds outside of my bedroom...the beautiful watercolor paintings in the books...and the Father reminded me...
You are still that Child to me... I see it all.... I will take care of things. Don't you worry.
Oh those words have helped me immensely!
People will always let us down but the Father won't.
In the meantime, I am enjoying planning this wonderful wedding for our daughter and *adorable* son-in-love. Wow. What a blessing this crossing of paths is.
I've always remembered the scripture in Isaiah that says in (my words) The people will stand back and say:
"Look what God has done!"
And truly when I see these two young lives meeting, I say... Look what God has done!
I read this quote this morning on my kitchen flip calendar:
"Every day we live is a priceless gift of God, loaded with possibilities to learn something new, to gain fresh insights."
~Dale Evans Rogers
So many insights, everyday is loaded with them. : )
God will whisper if we will listen and *hear*... Isn't that right?
Have a sweet day Loves, ~Amelia, the veteran homeschool mom, getting to know myself and God even more so in my 50s. The Last Child in the Woods...
