Day 18

Sometimes a long journey gets looooong. We are only at Day 18, but… Bingeing on Netflicks and surfing the web can only get you so far.
Ancient people often sang together to pass time on a journey. For example, Psalms 120-134 are often labelled the Song of Ascents, as these Psalms were sung on the journey up to Jerusalem.
In our house, we have a song and it is fitting for the journey we are on. It is by Audrey Assad and is titled “How Can I keep from Singing?”  Here is the first verse and chorus:
My life flows on in endless song;
Above earth’s lamentation,
I hear the sweet, though far-off hymn
That hails a new creation
Through all the tumult and the strife,
I hear that music ringing
It finds an echo in my soul
How can I keep from singing?
Hear the song on YouTube:

BTW, it takes about 20 seconds to sing . . . a better hand washing song than “Happy Birthday” x2.
Peace be with you,
Dr. Schuler
