Review of the heart

Got my time at Victrola in the early evening yesterday. The place is quieter by then. As I stood in line, I felt fingernails brush along my back: Jen, one of the owners, was stopping through and saying hello. Definitely a friendship developing there (and with her husband as well); she touched my arm as we spoke, then scooted out for the evening. It felt good to be so personally, specifically welcome. I want more of that in my life.

Had intended to do some reading and writing there, but got caught up in a trip down memory lane instead. Still so much of the past few months that doesn't fit neatly into a box, so much I can't fully put to rest. That gives me caution, which is probably good for everyone. Someone told me yesterday that if I said I was all sorted, they wouldn't believe me anyway. Wise.

Huge workday ahead: after I finish my tea and this entry, I'm off to church. Two services, then a memorial service, then a prayer service. Don't expect to return until sometime after 20:00 unless something changes. These are the days I'm glad I'm single because of the freedom it affords me, and the days I wish I weren't, because coming home to love would be wonderful beyond words.

That got to me. I should go.

Michael W. Smith, "Great is the Lord"

I know it's not the same song, but it reminded me of something else, one I totally love, written by Dennis Jernigan. I can't recall the first verse with clarity -_- and I can't find the lyrics, but thought you'd like it anyway; typing up what little I vaguely recall of the first verse ^_^;; IIRC, it's called "The Lord Reigns"

The Lord reigns.
He is a mighty God.
The Lord God reigns.
The Lord reigns.
He is a mighty God.
The Lord God reigns.

(this verse by no means all that accurate or complete -_-)
Children of Israel were brought to the brink,
The Lord led them through and let Pharaoh sink.
And up from the shore came a great and joyful sound!

Great is the Lord almighty!
He is Lord, He is God indeed!
Great is the Lord almighty!
He is God Supreme!
Great is the Lord almighty!
He is Lord, He is God indeed!
Great is the Lord.
Great is the Lord.

The Lord reigns.
He is a mighty God.
The Lord God reigns.
The Lord reigns.
He is a mighty God.
The Lord God reigns.

Children of Israel came to Jericho town.
The Lord said, 'Children, let's walk around.'
And for seven long days, they marched around that great wall,
Then the Lord said, 'Children, shout and watch it fall!"

Great is the Lord almighty!
He is Lord, He is God indeed!
Great is the Lord almighty!
He is God Supreme!
Great is the Lord almighty!
He is Lord, He is God indeed!
Great is the Lord.
Great is the Lord.

The Lord reigns.
He is a mighty God.
The Lord God reigns.
The Lord reigns.
He is a mighty God.
The Lord God reigns.

Children were dying, lost in their sin.
My God died and He rose again,
And I've been rejoicing since He took my blame,
Thank you, Jesus, praise Your name!

Great is the Lord almighty!
He is Lord, He is God indeed!
Great is the Lord almighty!
He is God Supreme!
Great is the Lord almighty!
He is Lord, He is God indeed!
Great is the Lord.
Great is the Lord.
Thanks a billion!
Loved the words.
Looked it up.
Downloaded it.
Playing it now,
and I'm all fired up now. :)
The Lord God said, "It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him." -- Genesis 2:18

He knows, dear. And He loves you, loves your heart and loves to fill your longings. He had to spend time forming Eve, sculpting her to be the perfect mate for Adam. Patience is difficult, but in the end it will be worth every second of waiting, of longing. He's promised.
