Why is it that so often we are not truly thankful for something until we have lost it?
I am battling some type of head cold this week – congestion, scratchy throat etc.. (or perhaps it is allergies already?) It is only slightly annoying so I have been able to carry on with life as usual HOWEVER…I lost my voice and sound like a pretty sick frog! (or I could look at the positive and say I have a very deep raspy sexy voice!) Either way a song just came on the radio that I love to sing with a loud belting voice and though I am no American Idol, I have been blessed by God with a decent strong voice. Well I went to sing and was rudely reminded of my lack of vocal chords as I croaked out the first line. UGH! It is just not the same worshipping God while you are mouthing the words.
Here’s hoping that my voice has returned by Easter Sunday so I can belt out – “Christ the Lord is Risen Today” at church and then sing along with my favorite inspirational Easter songs – “The Via Del La Rosa”, “Arise my Love”, “The Easter Song”, “More than Wonderful” and many more!
I am thankful today for a voice to sing praises to my God!
Enjoy singing along to this beautiful video on this eve of Good Friday. (and sing nice & loud for me!)
