Talk about being happy. Oh, yes. You may recall a while ago, I wrote about a song I had loved and been unable to find.
Nobody else seemed familiar with it and for years, I could find no reference to it.
One thing I’ve learned is that sometimes, things just seem to stay back in the shadows until God is ready to bring them out.
So it was one day this last week I decided to try looking for it again. Granted, the last time I heard it was around 1992 when my pastor in Clyde, Texas sang it.
As I wrote before, as he sang it, I always thought “It’s such a beautiful song...but God doesn’t speak to us any more, not like he did in Bible times.” And a few years later, he proved me wrong one day when he told me to sing “Amazing Grace” and then confirming his orders when the pastor’s message that Sunday, unknown to me at the time, turned out to be “Grace.”
The song? “He Still Speaks.” Both words and music are absolutely beautiful.
Online, looking for something on Christian books site, I decided to type in that title. And there it was. So I’ll learn it, and sing it the next time we have a variety night at our church.
But you won’t have to wait that long to hear it. A young lady in our church said, ”Why don’t you try YouTube? They have everything.”
I did, and there it was. So check it out. I think you will love it as much as I do.
The Ladies Christian Fellowship will meet Thursday at the Trinity Center in St. Paul’s Episcopal Church.
The meeting begins at 10:30 a.m. and is open to all women. It is non — or perhaps I should say — multi-denominational, because most of our churches are represented in the group.
There will be a special speaker and music, and a report on the group’s mission project, the Not Ashamed Club at the high school.
Lunch will be catered by Lesina Family at $12 per person. Reservations are needed to order the proper amount of food. For reservations, or info, call Liz at 707-464-3539, or Bonnie at 707-482-3705.
June 15 will be Game Night at New Life Community Church. Bring a snack to share and your favorite board game, of play games in the church collection. The fun starts at 6 p.m. You don’t have to belong to New Life to come and have fun and fellowship — it’s a great way to make new friends.
