Amen and amen, Mr. Piper. I wanted to cry as I watched this video. And I wanted to cry when I watched it the second time. But I was with the Hubs and my mom… and it’s not that I’m afraid to cry in front of them but the kind of cry that this video makes me want to cry is the ugly, sad kind of cry that you only want to do in private. The kind of cry that you cry when you are so sorrowful over something and you are pleading with God to change it. Oh, God will you change it? Change the heart of our nation, for Your glory.
I had planned on waiting until Tuesday to start cereal with Eli mainly because that was going to be my first opportunity to start in the morning. But since we had a snow dusting everything shut down (Haha.. only in Alabama!) and we didn’t have church. So, today was our first attempt at cereal. We’ll practice for a few more days and then move on to something that tastes better!
And here is a cute picture of my big, little man playing in the snow today! A rare treat for us! He loved it!
Sometimes we just need a good song to cry to.. and I found one today. I love Natalie Grant and I love this video. Man, she’s got a voice.. but the message is just what I needed today! I just had to share it…
“For the mountains shall depart
And the hills be removed,
But My kindness shall not depart from you,
Nor shall My covenant of peace be removed,”
Says the LORD, who has mercy on you.
Praise be to the Lord who has shown me great mercy!
