Saturday Night Movie Date

Four minutes, eight seconds 

into the film, “The Sound of Music”,  I started tearing up a bit. And that’s an embarrassing new record. But no tears left my eyes. That’s for sure. For I know my wife to be so attentive and she was just waiting for that special moment, so she could smirk at me.

What got me was a line from the opening scene with all the beautiful valleys, the calming view of the lakes, the brook, the mountains and that spectacular hilltop masterpiece with the Alps as the backdrop, where Maria spins in the pasture and sings, “The hills are alive, with the sound of music…”

It was this line: 

“I go to the hills when my heart is lonely
I know I will hear what I've heard before”

It reminded me of who God is in my life. It reminded me of how He’s always been there for me. It reminded me of what I’m here for.

God, you are my refuge, my strength and my comfort.
I go to You for everything, especially when I feel lost and weak.
You never fail to bring me back on track with you.
You never fail to remind me of who You are in my life, how much You love me and what I’m here for.
I am called by You, to You and for You.
I belong to You, God.
Thank You, Father.
