Sonidos Serranos

Sonidos Serranos: Sounds of the Sierras...
Reflecting some of my family's interests: God's wonderful creation (especially mountains and hills!), music, and language...

Psalm 121:1-2 (NASB)

I will lift up my eyes to the mountains;
From where shall my help come?
My help comes from the LORD,
Who made heaven and earth.

inspired by snow and rain

Maybe it's the abundant rain and snow we received this weekend following the extended period of drought we'd been experiencing here in the Upstate... Maybe it's the letters we received from both sets of parents ministering abroad the message of salvation in Christ alone... Maybe it's a combination of the two that has caused me to think on the following verses from Isaiah 55...

As the rain and the snow come down from heaven,
and do not return to it without watering the earth
and making it bud and flourish,
so that it yields seed for the sower
and bread for the eater,
so is my word that goes out from my mouth:
It will not return to me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire
and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.
You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace;
the mountains and hills will burst into song before you,
and all the trees of the field will clap their hands...

And the song inspired by these verses (on the Depths of Mercy CD from ShowForth) is also a great blessing...
