The first time I heard this song was on a sunny Saturday in Wichita Falls, TX. It was on a cd I’d found at Hastings…it seemed completely by accident that I ended up buying it. I had been looking for something else. : )
As I was listening to the song, and singing along while reading the words in the booklet that came with it…we get to the chorus…and I had this flash of an image pop into my head.
It was myself, Elizabeth, Anya, and Michelle
…we were singing this song together
…I don’t know where we were…the background was blank
…we were wearing white dresses
…our hands were waving in the air and we were filled with JOY!
I listened to the song over and over again…and I was wishing I was not sitting in my truck…my body yearned to get up and dance! My heart was filled with hope and joyful expectation.
It’s been a long time since I’ve had such an intense feeling of happiness.
So I went to my myspace page to change my profile pic to the one of me smiling in Grand Forks…and I’d hoped to add this song to my player but it was unavailable.
Music is such a soothing balm to my soul.
Music that is filled with truth, filled with hope…that’s what my heart yearns to hear.
Life can be so full of tears and grief.
Rumors abound that break hearts and destroy the names of the righteous.
So much injustice—it can make our blood boil!
But today…today my heart is bursting with hope and a peace that makes no sense.
So I will dance!
I will sing!
I will SMILE! :D
