Tonight, I am so thankful for the Sabbath. I actually felt ready to rest this week… the laundry’s all put away, the floors even got vaccumed (which also means that toys went away to their respective places) and supper came moments after the sun slipped behind the mountains… As my Dad and I sat in quiet conversation, after supper and the boys had run off to play, a sense of shalom settled over me… So thankful for the day to just rest!
Upon getting the boys tucked in, I wasn’t sure what to do. I have this package waiting to be opened, and I CAN’T wait! , but I didn’t feel ready – I needed more time to decompress and relax, maybe get a shower… and spend some time in worship….
There’s a beautiful song I heard last week that I decided to listen to again, and find the lyrics as well… The music touched me deeply last Sabbath, even tho, at the time, the lyrics didn’t sink in, tho I think I read the English translation??
Tonight, they seem perfect…
The following link is a quality copy of the song, Yeshua by Fernandinho, and I believe it is Portugese.
Lyrics (taken loosely from Song of Solomon):
Vem saltando sobre os montes (Come leaping over the mountains)
de Jerusalem (of Jerusalem)
Sou tua noiva apaixonada (I am your bride who is in love)
te esperando para dançar (waiting for you to dance)
this version is not as good music quality, but I have to say I wish I’d been there in person to see this performance! What an incredible romance we have “fallen” into!
Leaping over the Mountains of Jerusalem
I am your Bride, who is in Love
Waiting for you to Dance.
Yeshua Come …..
