mighty to save.

we gathered together, thousands singing for the glory of the risen King. and just in case i forgot, we declared Him stronger while children from africa danced with glee. somewhere during mighty to save with their small hands lifted sky-high and their eyes closed, i fell in love with the song again. i thought of breezy sunday mornings in an african slum and voices echoing around me, of eyes full of curiosity looking my way as russ strummed his guitar next to me. i didn't always love this song. over-played and taken for granted, the meaning was lost until heard from the lips of  those who have nothing but truly know the meaning of full surrender.

 

with ann, giving thanks:
