How Great Thou Art


What's this, has Rome invaded our sleepy little southern town? Not really, this is just how we were greeted at the door when we went with a friend to see the Choral Society present "How Great Thou Art." I was not able to take any pictures of the presentation, but thought the beautiful windows were stunning with their reflections on the walls. And happily the guards did not confiscate my camera! Phil took the pictures of the guards, all the rest were taken by me.



O Lord my God, when I in awesome wonder
Consider all the worlds thy hands hath made
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder
Thy power throughout the universe displayed

Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee
How great Thou art, how great Thou art
Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee
How great Thou art, how great Thou art!

I will be taking a blog break from now until Thursday, so I will not be visiting or posting. I know I will suffer blog withdrawal and I will miss all of you, but I have other obligations that will keep me busy all day long for the next little while.

Oh Ginny....this was a great presentation....too bad the cameras weren't allowed for the presentation, but I must confess, there is something so inspiring with stain-glass.

Have a great blog break! I love stained glass windows! Every time I see the Roman soldiers in a play I do wonder if they really dressed like that! How uncomfortable and cumbersome! Hope you were blessed by the concert!
