Today is Thankful Thursday, and Iris has chosen music as the theme, or you can write about whatever you choose. I love all types of praise music, the old, and the new. As long as it lifts my Father God up, I love it. I love to sing, praise dance, lift my hands in praise of my Father. Music has, and remains my place of solitude, refuge, calmness, and sweet peace. Father God is my maestro, He leads me as I sing to Him. I have always loved the song Amazing Grace, listening to it, and singing it. My dear Momma and I would sing it together when I was a little girl. Recently, I find myself singing over and over, verse 1, with particular emphasis on these words: Twas blind, but now I see. Those precious words ring out so clearly in my life, and in my heart. As most of you know, due to my diabetes, I have failing eyesight. But, yet, it seems, the dimmer, and more blurred my vision becomes, I am seeing better than ever in my heart. I feel as if I have better than 20/20 vision in my heart and soul. Things that used to be unclear, and cloudy to see, or understand, God has made crystal clear to me now. I realize that my eyes are only part of the bigger picture, His existence in my life, as my soul Provider, my Saviour, my Father, my Healer, and my true Physician, that is what matters. That is what I am to cling to, and to claim as my own daily. As another wonderful song says: I am leaning on the everlasting arms. Standing on the Promises of God. I thank You Father God for giving me Your eyes, so I can truly see. I also thank You for the beautiful gift of music, and for opening my ears, as well as my heart, to hear Your daily love song. I love You Father.
