Stan’s Corner, October 7, 2011

At choir rehearsal tonight for our October 15 concert, Jereme,our guest conductor, reminded us that we have a message to proclaim in our singing which got me to thinking about one of the strongest messages we will try to convey:  It is from the song Blessings by Laura Story:

‘Cause what if Your blessings come through raindrops

What if Your healing comes through tears

What if a thousand sleepless nights

Are what it takes to know You’re near

What if trials of this life are Your mercies in disguise

We all have hardships, and this song gives a radically different way to view what they bring to our lives.
