Folks, I hope you don’t mind our doing hymns today instead of news–but then the hymns are the news, aren’t they? The real news. The good news.
Our friend “Weavingword” sent us this, a beautiful rendition by Chris Rice of the classic hymn, It Is Well With My Soul.
Horatio Spafford lost his two-year-old son to scarlet fever, then lost all his wealth in the Chicago fire, and then his daughters in a sea disaster… and in 1876 he wrote It Is Well With My Soul. Surely God had a firm grip on his hand, and went with him through the valley of the shadow.
