The Hallelujah Chorus
It sang in my head as I left
Target today! My , what an un-
expected thing of God. We went
out to look for a skirt for Emma to
wear tomorrow under her choir
robe. It's Easter so something new
is always nice. She's SO hard to fit now
and in Junior sizes ~~ all sorts of sizes!
It's laborious to find clothes. I prayed
as we went in ( I don't do this on
Saturdays when the whole working force
is out) and on the sale rack we found shorts
and a skirt to fit. I could NOT believe it!
I told my dear husband who has tilled our
garden today about the Hallelujah Chorus.
We'll hear it tomorrow ~~ the choir is singing
it! The bookends of song are Christ the Lord is
Risen Today at the beginning of the service
to the end being the Hallelujah Chorus!
Gives me goose bumps. Tears of joy will flow!
