Zephaniah 3:17 reminds us that God is musical and He rejoices and sings over you. - -
The LORD your God in the midst of you is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over you with joy; he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.

What’s the Harm in a Little Bounce?
Bounces in Life can cause us to be off kilter !
The day our big Oak tree fell
and hit our propane tank, we figured no real damage was done.Of course the tree was in the drive way and our
neighbor promised to find someone to haul off the good wood.
We realized our propane tank
had been shoved a bit off kilter, but passed that thought aside when all seemed to be
a few weeks later, we had
no hot water!The pilot light would turn
off each time Robert relit it so we could enjoy a shower or wash clothes.Then it would turn off again, and we could
not understand why.
We called our plumber friend,
and he replaced parts that did not help.He again replaced other parts, drained the tank and still the pilot
light would not stay lit.
As a last resort, we had our
friend order us a new hot water heater.
Guess what?The same thing was happening, the pilot light
would not stay on.
Then a few days later our propane heater for
our house quit working.
Finally after much
consideration, our men decided the propane line must have been bounced and
jiggled from the fallen tree, and there was a leak somewhere.
The propane man said there was no leak at the tank, so our men began to dig holes in our yard trying to find the
direction of the connections.
It took two days digging.
As I write, a leak has been
found and repaired, and our friend is working on our house heater to get it up and going.
Our dear son-in-law loaned us
some space heaters and we are layered up with sweaters and are not
suffering - -Just a bit anxious.
In life there are problems
that bounce us at times.One thing we
must always make sure is that our connection to Jesus Christ is not broken or
Always keep that precious time
alone with God. Come with your Bible, in prayer and with praise.
Isaiah 26:3 Thou will keep him in perfect peace, Whose
mind is stayed on Thee . . .
