Jorie, Beauty of Spring

I have praised this CD ever since my friend set it to me a few weeks back. Please, take this link and give it a try the girls and I love her.
Our fave songs on Songs of Deliverance are

Song for My Soul
Songs of Deliverance
okay, okay ALL OF THEM;)

Go, Go Go you won't be disappointed you may even get up and Dance.

Here are the words to Song For My Soul by Jorie...

Let it rise when your hope is gone
Let it rise when your barely hanging on
Let it rise sunset and sunrise
Let it rise, yes.

Let it rise standing on a Mountain Peak
Let it rise in the valley cold and bleak
Let it rise in life or death
Let it rise with your very last breath.

And peace will follow you and the peace will follow you

Let it rise when you see a perfect sky
Let it rise when those dark clouds race by
Let it rise when your young or old
Let it rise when you see the streets of gold

And peace will follow you

And you don't understand why your problems won't end and the night only brings more pain but, hold on my dear friend this is not how it ends and your joy will come in with the morning.

Let it rise...

My friend sent this cd to me when I confided in her that my faith was waining this winter, let me just say it was a very Long Cold Winter. She pointed out to me "it is really, really hard to make sense out of things that don't make sense, and try to reconcile all of that with the idea of a Loving God..." she went on to say if it takes me yelling and screaming at God and getting angry then do it because he already knows what I am going to say and do. So I have many thanks for my beautiful Friend to pull me back to where I know I should be and keep Letting it Rise even when all hope is gone and I am barely hanging on.
