His melody

Tune Thou my harp;
There is not, Lord, could never be
The skill in me.

Tune Thou my harp,
That it may play
Thy melody,
Thy harmony.

Tune Thou my harp;
O Spirit, breathe Thy thought through me,
As pleaseth Thee.


-Amy Carmichael

Yeah! I saw your comment on my blog and then rushed over to your blog to see if you had an update. I am happy! :D I was very hyper today too. I got the insatiabal urge to jump in water puddles. So I did. Didn't wear a skirt today--lol.

My sister found this poem several months ago, and excitedly came to show it to me.
It presents such a beautiful image! I must remember to let Him guide me, even as I play my harp!

Oh, and while on the subject of harps, the very first harp I ever played was yours! Your family was playing at God's Mountain Camp in Rushville, MO about 5 years ago. I had been wanting to play the harp since I was very little. My mom convinced me to go and ask you about yours! You graciously showed me a few things about it, and I was so excited! :-)

I love harp music! I've always thought it would be so neat to learn to play. :) I have a lap harp, but it's nothing like having a "real" one, though it is fun. :)

Bethany, great post! May that ever be our prayer and attitude for His touch is our only way to ever really count for anything! BTW The Light and the Glory came in the mail yesterday and I started reading today. I am thankful and thrilled to have been able to buy it for only 3.77 with free shipping! God cares about everything! So far I have really enjoyed what I have read, but I need to stop reading for fun and start taking notes! :( Thanks for the info! JConner Ps. 90:17
