God provided sweet surprises as Amy Tallent came to help all afternoon, along with Kristy Smith - my faithful friend who is always at adoption yard sales...just to help! I love the hands of friends.
This evening the boys performed a concert for some friends of my parents. They played four songs and led hearts toward praising God. Music is sweeter when it is sung by the river! Micah joined the boys and picked several songs on his banjo. He was pickin' and grinnin'. The evening ended with some accapella singing of hymns...I even sang a duet with my 94 year old Mamaw, "'Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus." I cherish these beautiful moments of life.
We arrived home at 9:30 pm. Braden painted "Mega Yard Sale" signs. Franklin made rice krispie treats and brownies to sell tomorrow. Weston helped make sure everything was ready for tomorrow. While all of this was happening, we kept hearing Mason strumming on his guitar.
Sounding unfamiliar, I wandered downstairs to hear what he was playing.
Mason was writing a new song. He said, "God wrote it" because he wrote the entire song after we arrived home. Mason claimed he has never written a song this fast. His song revealed his love for his distant brother.
Mason played the song for all of us, and we were all deeply touched. The chorus states, "We are waiting for you... We are waiting for you..." After listening to Mason's emotion coming out in his song, I find that the Lord is entwining all of our hearts together. Overcomer is part of our family. Thoughts of him pour out in prayer, in conversation, in song.
We are waiting for you, Overcomer. We are waiting for you.
And so after waiting patiently, Abraham received what was promised.
