I saw a link to this song on YouTube the day after the massive tornados hit our state. Not quite so sure I’m ready to write too much about that day yet. We have friends who have lost family members and homes. Please keep our state in your prayers. So much devastation and now clean up and rebuilding is beginning. To say that day was surreal is the only way I know to describe it and I’m not sure that is even an accurate description.

Of course music is what speaks to me, soothes me.

This song, Blessings by Laura Story, and this one I posted last week keep playing over and over in my head.

What if a thousand sleepless nights are what it takes to know Your near.” Oh how I know this experience well.

    this has become one of my favorite songs as well. it’s been such a *blessing* to me these last few weeks!

    I have been praying for all those that stand in the wake of the devastating tornadoes this past week. I am truly sorry for your loss. I smiled today at your words, “music speaks to me, it soothes me.” My whole life is in music, and it soothes me too. And when I cannot find the words to even utter a prayer, I put on the earphones and just rest in Him! I pray you feel presence with you!

    I had not heard it until the day after the storms. I think I will always associate it with those now. Definitely one of my favorites right now also. — Amy
