A Sweet Sound

One thing I love about birthdays is how I get to hear the precious voices of the people I love all on the same day. A surprise visit, a Skype call, phone calls, a long lunch, and a birthday date. Beautiful voices all. Beautiful because they are special to me, and I can’t imagine a world without these people in it.

I feel the same way about the music in my head. So many different voices, all beautiful, all singing over me while I sleep every night. All waking me with words of praise to God, or singing songs of healing over me. This morning it was Citizen Way singing How Sweet the Sound

Amazing grace how sweet the sound
I hear You singing over me
I once was lost but now I’m found
And it’s beautiful
Amazing grace how sweet the sound
It covers every part of me
My soul is silent
I am found
And it’s a beautiful sound

And it is a beautiful sound! I was so tired last night after a long day of birthday celebrations and getting home late. When I woke in the middle of the night, there it was… That beautiful sound. I smiled and thought how loved and secure it made me feel, but went promptly back to sleep. And when I woke up this morning, it was still there, still singing over me. Still beautiful. Still loved and appreciated.

God’s amazing grace is sweet when it’s washing over me in my sleep like this morning’s rain outside my window. And just like the rain, it covers every part of me if I stand in it long enough to let it soak into my heart and soul. And it’s a beautiful sound.
