Singing Together

I lift up my eyes to the hills.
From where does my help come?
2 My help comes from the Lord,
who made heaven and earth.
 
     ~ Psalm 121:1-2
 
He who sings scares away his woes.  
 
     ~ Cervantes

Congress Singing Together
In a nation where religious freedom was at the foundation of its purpose, this day will stand in history.  Because of this attack, the judgement of another group of individuals who would try, and is still trying to dominate, because of the innocence and lives lost.
 
I hold before you a usually divided Congress, standing on the Capitol steps, joined together in song.  They were not singing the Star Spangled Banner, or America, they were singing God Bless America, in some cases, arm in arm, and hand in hand. They were not singing in teams, they were singing together in the face of danger, tragedy, terrorism, singing God Bless America.
 
A miracle.  One that stays with me and continues to move me all this time later, because it says that we CAN sing together. We can withhold our venomous thoughts and actions and stand as one in God.
Today, as you are tempted to yell at the television, traffic or your fellow “man” (or woman,) remember.
And lift that one or ones in prayer.
 
Because of Him,
Linda
