When Something Touches Your Soul
Have you ever had a smell, a touch, a sight, a sound, or even a taste touch your soul? Such a poignant touch that tears start to fall, or you revel in a sweet memory this sense brings back to your mind? I’ve experienced this before, and I had it happen again on Saturday.
Let me explain and share my moment…
I was sitting with my morning cup of coffee, listening to Sirius XM – The Message and the song ‘You Raise Me Up‘ by Selah came on. My husband and I were in the middle of a conversation and tears just started to flow down my cheeks. He looked at me with a questioning look on his face, as we weren’t having any kind of earth shattering conversation, and all I could do was shrug my shoulders. “It’s the song”, was all I could say. Why? I have no idea. I don’t remember when I last heard it or why it was so poignant to me. But sometimes we don’t have all the answers, do we?
In His hands…we’re all in His hands. And what a comfort that is.
Good times or bad, He’s with us. Whether we feel Him there or not…He’s there.
May God bless all of you on this Sunday.
He sure has blessed me.
Mine is usually when I lay down at night and a slight breeze blows across my cheek. I always say think “hi Mom” when that happens. It reminds me of her running her hand across my cheek when I was a kid. Comforting. 🙂
What a wonderful memory and ‘touch’ just before you sleep! My Mom moment is in the Spring and Summer when the birds start singing and I hear “Old Sam Peabody, Peabody, Peabody”…or at least that’s what Mom used to tell us the bird was saying. I, too, always say ‘hi Mom’. Have a wonderful day!
