I love spring in Philadelphia (right now, anyway). This afternoon as I was driving to the store, I rolled my windows down and enjoyed the crisp - not too hot, not too cold, not too humid - air. I enjoyed the rare blue sky. I drove through several neighborhoods where the azaleas were in full bloom. And "God of Wonders" came on my stereo. Perfect!
Besides the fact that I just love the words, this song evokes two memories in my mind. The first is the first time I heard the song - on a mission trip to Honduras with the church at which I will soon happily be a member. The second is the most "God of Wonders" place I know, the northern edge of the Crazy Mountains in MT.
I also just bought a CD of Spanish worship music that includes "Dios de Maravillas." It reminds me that He's not only God of my beautiful places, but of all the beautiful places that I hope to visit someday!
(and, yes, I am trying to see how many links I can embed in this post! That's what you do when you don't have a final until Wednesday afternoon!)
