Sunday Singing

Please click to start!

Just imagine you're out on a hike with a group of about twenty giggling, rambunctious, lovely thirteen year old young women!! The sky is blue, the birds are singing and the warm sun feels great! You find a small stream, the water flowing over the rocks is such a relaxing song. Everyone finds a rock and quietly takes it all it in. Wow, what a totally amazing earth has been lovingly created for us.

"Let the mountains shout for joy, and all ye valleys cry aloud; and all ye seas and dry lands tell the wonders of your Eternal King! And ye rivers, and brooks, and rills, flow down with gladness. Let the woods and all the trees of the field praise the Lord; and ye solid rocks weep for joy! And let the sun, moon and the morning stars sing together, and let all the sons of God shout for joy! And let the eternal creations declare his name forever and ever! And again I say, how glorious is the voice we hear from heaven, proclaiming to our ears, glory and salvation, and honor, and immortality, and eternal life; kingdoms , principalities and powers!"
Doctrine and Covenants 128:20-23

Then a beautiful voice starts singing "How Great Thou Art". This experience never ceases to touch my heart. I pray it touches the heart of those young women too!

I feel the love of God when I'm in the beautiful outdoors. This earth the Savior lovingly created for us is incredible! I remember one morning, I was out early walking on the beach. I walked a couple of miles headed northwest. When I turned to face the east I saw the most glorious sunrise I have ever seen. I immediately felt such love. It was like Heavenly Father put that sunrise there just for me. I was overwhelmed!! I want everyone to have an experience like that and be able to say "Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee, how great Thou art"!!
