touch the sky

DSC_0013

I need time at the end of the day to be alone.  I need time to be filled.  Lately it’s been harder to find the soul-refreshment.  It comes and goes in phases, in seasons.

Music sings to me in these times.  Songs allow me to be completely passive, a tired traveler who has nowhere else to go, a weary receiver who has nothing left to give.

Here’s a song I heard on the way to get ice cream with the kids.  The summer heat had settled down and given it a rest for the day, and the sunset, well, what can I say.

She was beautiful as always.

Touch the Sky
Hillsong

What fortune lies beyond the stars
Those dazzling heights too vast to climb
I got so high to fall so far
But I found heaven as love swept low

My heart beating, my soul breathing
I found my life when I laid it down
Upward falling, spirit soaring
I touch the sky when my knees hit the ground

What treasure waits within Your scars
This gift of freedom gold can’t buy
I bought the world and sold my heart
You traded heaven to have me again

My heart beating, my soul breathing
I found my life when I laid it down
Upward falling, spirit soaring
I touch the sky when my knees hit the ground

Find me here at Your feet again
Everything I am, reaching out, I surrender
Come sweep me up in Your love again
And my soul will dance
On the wings of forever
