Peace

Waiting to hear news about my father-in-law. He has an appointment today to determine what kind of lymphoma he has and how far it has spread. I don't know how much information we will get from this appointment. I've spent the better part of two days worrying.

I woke up this morning and felt a sense of peace. I just get the feeling that he will be ok. I have confidence that the doctors will take good care of him and somehow...I think that he will make it through this.

I listened to a CD this morning on the way to work when normally I listen to the radio. I heard this song by Sara Groves and it seemed to fit my mood. Maybe God telling me something? He can be all sneaky like that...lol



This Peace

So many words to say, but I'm opting for silence
So many days to live
I thinking I'm sitting this one out
Cause something I've been chasing finally stop to let me catch it
Something I've been longing for and dreaming about

It's a whisper in my ear
It's a shiver up my spine
It's the gratitude I feel for all that's right
It's a mystery appeal that's been granted me tonight
This peace

It's something so elusive
Something close but far away
It's the home that I can't live in yet somewhere in outer space
And sometimes I barely miss it when I walk into the room
The curtains are still swaying and I feel the air move

And it whispers in my ear and it shivers up my spine
It's the gratitude I feel for all that's right
It's a mystery appeal that's been granted me tonight
This peace

No time to grab a camera
No time to write it down
Just time enough to breathe it in
And linger

It's a whisper in my ear
It's a shiver up my spine
It's the gratitude I feel for all that's right
It's a mystery appeal that's been granted me tonight
This peace
This peace

God has a way of doing those things.
