Just A Prayer


Lord, I would love to hear your singing voice today. I always love to hear a loved one stroll past me with a song on their lips. Their joyful heart being expressed by a happy tune lifts my heart to new places. I would love to hear you singing your song over me today.
 
I remember my Grandpa, who was Irish to the core, could dance a jig well into his nineties. He always had  a song and dance to share. His expression of joy would illuminate the room and break all weariness of the day. 

Scotty will often sing a song to me. He usually makes me laugh. Some of the songs in his repertoire mixed with his timing to express them to me could only make me laugh. He means to make me laugh. This is part of our fun in life.

But today, I want to hear the song you are singing, Lord. I will be listening. When I hear the birds, I will be thinking of you. When I hear my son whistling a tune, I will be thinking of you. Even the melody of the breeze will remind me that I am listening for your song. 

And I will sing with You.

Because of Jesus,
Amen!

Cheri

"The LORD thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing." Zeph. 3:17

Listening for His song,
Joy

Love the beautiful flowers. God has really stolen my heart with nature and flowers. Since beloved left, it's almost like here as of late, I've clung to them, I'm drawn to them. I just like to see color when I drive to work, drive the streets. I love all shapes, sizes, colors. I'm in awe of the beauty He created in nature...flowers (blooming trees) and birdies. Love me some flowers and birdies.
