Last night at church we were singing songs and the now common reoccurring thought that I have that my mom would like a particular worship song hit me and I did that quick check to see if the song even existed while she was alive. Naturally, not.
I don’t know why this always touches me so. If you knew my mom, you probably knew that like me, she couldn’t sing well – we couldn’t carry a tune if you gave it to us in a bucket. But she still loved music, particularly worship music. And she had strong opinions about it. I often think she would like some of the music that is available these days.
Anyway, this just always touches me. I’m thankful to think of her in that way, and really, I’ve got this sort of image of her in heaven enjoying worship music, which as we all know, will be perfected, her ability to sing will be perfected, and . . . well, that is a great thought!
Haven’t blogged since before the big day of gratitude. Hope you all had a fun and meaningful day. It was a special one for us – we ended up alone for the day (our guest has a scheduling snaffoo and ended up stuck someplace else – it was enjoyable for him so not bad).
