Symphony of Praise
I am seated on the glider on my back deck. It is almost 7:30pm and I am enjoying the wonderful, musical evening that God has graced me with.
I hear a woodpecker playing staccato on someone’s house, I am glad it isn’t mine this time.
The birds are giving their good night chorus of praise to God, the sound of the flight of a humming bird heralds its presence.
The neighborhood dogs are adding their voices, some deep, some high, not wanting to miss out on their part in this symphony God is directing.
Children’s voices and shrieks are adding to the medley being orchestrated tonight.
Pikes Peak is before me and the mountains surrounding it are beginning to be covered in a mantel of storm clouds. Thunder is rolling overhead adding a touch of percussion.
Luke 19:40 says: I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out.
My whole neighborhood is giving praise to God and I join.
Lord, you are mighty, you are awesome, you are the King of Glory and I praise you for my life.
