I Cry Because I'm Happy

A look of alarm crossed his face as my son looked more closely at my eyes. "Mom! Why is there a tear in your eye? Why are you crying?" I'm not a crier, so he was legitimately concerned. "Because God's so good to us, bud." As the world approaches lockdown, we are all in increasing danger of myopia. So today we took some time to watch hymns sung in the beauty of nature. Every so often, it is good to remember how small we are next to everything God has created. This song started with one of the most amazing voices I've ever heard, and continued with haunting harmonies. But watching kids of every race singing about grace that transcends all heartache: wrecked me. A little bit of Heaven on earth.
