I don't think I ever remember seeing so much rain. My school system closed on Monday because of flooding. A school in the south end of the county was lost and many people here have lost homes. We got through it unscathed. I started wondering if someone had built an ark and failed to tell us.

Genesis 7:11-12 In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, on the seventeenth day of the second month—on that day all the springs of the great deep burst forth, and the floodgates of the heavens were opened. And rain fell on the earth forty days and forty nights.

"When I speak of home, I speak of the place where-in default of a better-those I love are gathered together, and if that place were a gypsy's tent, or a barn, I should call it by the same good name not withstanding." Charles Dickens

Sunday Morning Unwrapped

I really enjoy going to my church each Sunday. Each week I look forward to it and afterwards I reflect on the message throughout the week. The message was about change and I was grateful for the words I heard, but the music blew me away. My life has always been defined by music and while I may not remember many things about events or special occasions, I do many times recall what music was playing. Echoing Angels was visiting and played our worship songs, so the music was bigger and louder than usual. One of the last songs played was Revelation Song. It has always been a great song to me, but I had never heard it live. The words raced through my soul and sent chills up my spine. Good chills! Chills that made me feel enveloped by the power and grace of God. This video isn't from my church, but it a great performance of the song.

The chorus is my favorite part.

Holy, Holy, Holy
Is the Lord God Almighty
Who was, and is, and is to come
With all creation I sing:
Praise to the King of Kings!
You are my everything,
And I will adore You!

I'm thankful for Sunday morning at church and the way God restores my soul. I'm linking to Tuesdays Unwrapped over at chatting at the sky. Go see what others are unwrapping.
