We sang this song last week. As I was standing there next to Brad holding James, I was reminded of another time these words rang out across the room...it sure didn't feel like a natural thing to sing "bless the Lord" when we had just miscarried. I don't even think I could say the words aloud, more like my heart whispered them as I cried in the back row of the church. This time was different...sort of. His character is still the same, good and sovereign. When we sang this song, my song, again, I looked down at James and was overwhelmed with where God has taken us this year...quite literally our blessing was in my hands, filling up my arms and heart. December is fast approaching marking the one year anniversary of finding out we were pregnant with our first...and then just as quickly finding out he was gone. This song reminds me of that each and every time I sing it. But this week I felt the full circle He has taken me...and once again I was crying in the back row.
