The low spots will pass. The high spots will also pass. When we are at the top of our game, it seems like nothing will ever get in the way. Are you flying high right now? Are you in the pits? The ebb and flow of our days means that things change. Our kids grow up and we wonder where did the time go? I remember when that child was brought to me after being born - now he is in the Army and has been in Iraq twice and South Korea once. Things seem to be humming right along and then the phone rings and everything changes.
Are we prepared for the changes that are coming? Are there changes that we are causing? Is the world friendly right now? No matter. Where does peace come from? How do we master being contented? Please listen to this hymn and then read the story behind it and then you will hear it again. The words will mean so much more after listening to what this man endured yet still was at peace.
Here is my favorite hymn -
and here is the story behind the song- the words will mean more to you after you know this story.
Peace be with you -Myra
