Singing From My Bed........

Psalm 149

Okay, friends, I hadn't intended to mention my last Sunday morning's Worship service..but when my sweet daughter shared this verse with me just now, I about had a glory spell.

4 For the Lord taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation.

5 LET THE SAINTS BE JOYFUL IN GLORY: LET THEM SING ALOUD UPON THEIR BEDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

6 Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword(God's Word) in their hand....

Last Sunday morning when I watched Hubby leave for church without me, my heart broke. I went to my recliner to watch the Hobe Sound service via internet. I only sat for a moment or two when the pain became so severe I couldn't stand it. I made my way to the bedroom, turned on my oven(heating mattress pad/blanket) and crawled in. I turned the service on my Ipad and placed it on the dresser beside my bed. I lay flat of my back and pulled the covers all the way up to my neck.
God's Presence bathed me in an even warmer blanket....and my joyful heart gave way to "singing from my bed!!"
