It was only a few weeks from dying time and she was reflecting over her life.
She said “you know I’ve found that life is a lot eaiser when you have a song in your heart and a prayer on your lips.”
This was a very simple observations from a Godly woman who had not done anything phenomenal – only successful marriage of 63 years, and rearing four God-fearing children…
We used to do a lot more singing – aloud, in our hearts, at home, in the bathtub, in the kitchen. My dad used to hum as he walked.
It seems the TV music and radio have drowned out our little melodies. It’s hard to think with all the hullabaloo around us. We need to turn it all off and have some quiet time. It does make life easier. It changes our mood.
Hold on to that song, Myrt – Mom – I’m coming to help you sing it.
The Lord is my strength and my shield;
My heart trused in Him, and I am helped;
Therefore my heart greatly rejoices,
And with my song I will praise Him. (Psalms 28:7)
