Still I Sing

The Watered Soul: Still I Sing

Mar 16, 2011

Still I Sing

bird soar

Inspired by the song of the birds

Been through the stark darkness of the night
Wasn’t sure if I’d ever see the slightest crack of light
but still I sing

Devastation and destruction surrounds me
I’m not even able to take flight
But even now I choose to sing!

Betrayed and wounded my wings find no strength to soar
Things appear hopeless but I dare to dream there’s so much more
But today I still sing

I sing not because all is good
Rather I’m thankful that things are not as it could
I sing because You are worthy
So whether in a whisper or in an exuberant voice
to sing unto You is an easy choice.

Lovely Wanda, I get many birds and wildlife in my garden, it's a joy to hear them sing and watch the squirrels scurry about.

Have a lovely day.
Yvonne.

Let all who take refuge in You rejoice; let them sing joyful praises forever. Spread Your protection over them, that all who love Your name may be filled with joy. - Psalm 5:11

Joy unspeakable, peace unexplainable and glory unimaginable.

Loved this, Wanda - it was beautiful!

My favorite line? "I sing because You are worthy."

AMEN, indeed!

GOD BLESS!

Amen! Thank you for sharing Wanda. I'm still singing... no matter what because GOD is too good for me not to sing.

My love and prayers are with you and thank you for the warm words and prayers for me at my blog.

Thank you for this post, Wanda. My friend Frank found out today that he has cancer and I want to pass this page on to him and his wife. I know it will be a blessing to them.
