Day 4. The hills are alive….

Fog covered hills

Blessed be your name is a song by Matt Redman that means a lot to me. I first heard it at a friend’s wedding when I was recovering from a broken heart and the lyrics really helped me. At church, today, on the first Sunday of the year and for the very first worship song to kick start the New Year – this was the one that was chosen. I belted it out. Wonderful! It helped confirm in me that I am on the right track with this blog. It speaks about how God is good even in our hard times, in our dark times and when we walk through the wilderness…

Blessed be Your name
In the land that is plentiful
Where Your streams of abundance flow
Blessed be Your name

And blessed be Your name
When I’m found in the desert place
Though I walk through the wilderness
Blessed be Your name

I was treated to home-made lemon cake and quiche followed by a foggy, muddy but fun walk in the hills. It doesn’t matter what the weather is, when you have people around you to share life with. Friendship, a good walk and dry socks are all such blessings!
