Singing Sunday

A couple days ago while I was painting our bedroom, I had the iPod on shuffle. Usually the iPod isn't to friendly with me and it plays all the songs that my dear sweet husband loves. But for some reason the iPod was playing great stuff. One of the songs it played was "Feel It All" by Margaret Becker. Here are the words...

I think I heard Your voice floating on the evening wind
And felt You near again in the touch of a friend
this life as it should be. This is life complete,
Cracking the surface of every breath and finding You there in the center of it

In the beauty of the morning
In the rhythm of the rain
In the symphony of laughter as it plays across a face
In the colors of creation
Painting sunsets in the fall
I want to feel it all.

Been living so close to the skin trying to feel everything.
I’ve been digging down so deep, looking for eternal things.
I prayed a prayer to be wise,
To see it all with Your eyes,
For ears to hear
And a heart to seek
And the gift to find all the treasure you leave.

In the beauty of the morning
In the rhythm of the rain
In the symphony of laughter as it plays across a face
In the colors of creation
Painting sunsets in the fall
I want to feel it all.

What is life if not to see Your spirit passing by?
What is love if not to leave the imprint of your touch.
I think I see it.

In the beauty of the morning
In the rhythm of the rain
In the symphony of laughter as it plays across a face
In the colors of creation
Painting sunsets in the fall
I want to feel it all.

In the fury of the ocean
On a stormy winters day
In the choir of the angels as they dance upon the waves
In the colors of creation
Painting sunsets in the fall
I want to feel it all.

That is my prayer. To see it all with the eyes of Jesus. To see what He sees. To hear what he hears. To be so deeply in love with Him that I never take thinks like the ocean's waves or a snowstorm for granted. Jesus is such an awesome Creator!
