Handel’s Messiah

I have been driving my children crazy this Christmas season. They say I am hurting their ears by playing Handel’s Messiah over and over again. I can not help it. Blame my Dad and Mom. They always played this music around the Christmas season. I think my Dad had like 17 records total. Now we have the entire Messiah on 2 CD’s. Much easier to keep track of.

This has been a hard, hard week. If you have read any of my previous posts, you will know that there have been 2 deaths in our "family" in the past 2 weeks. Both were tragic and horrible and unexpected.

I am sitting here working on a memorial for my dear friend Maribeth’s son Jason that passed away on Saturday. I am glad no one else is home to "hurt their ears." I am comforted by the words of the Messiah that are straight from the Bible.

I asked myself a question I thought I’d never ask God this morning. "Where are you in all of this God?" Listening to the words of this song, I realize He’s right here. And, he’s right there with Maribeth and her Grandkids who just lost their dad.

Comfort ye, comfort ye My people

For every mountain and hill made low

and every valley will be exalted

And rough places plane

And crooked straight

And the Glory, the Glory of the Lord shall be revealed….

And all flesh shall sing together

Halleiluia, For the Lord God Omnipotent reigneth.

His grace overpowers my questions…Take a listen. I hope it doesn’t hurt your ears.
