Tonight I’m Thankful…
…for the people who lift me up! I just came home from one of those long personal confrontations that have to happen from time to time, and I put Josh Groban in the CD player. In shuffle mode, the second song that came up was “You Raise Me Up,” and I realized how blessed I am to have people who will – from time to time – gently get in my face and help me me get “over” myself!
I know some people think it’s cheesy and all that, but tonight, these lyrics are kind of hitting home…
“When I am down and, oh my soul, so weary;
When troubles come and my heart burdened be;
Then, I am still and wait here in the silence,
Until you come and sit awhile with me.
You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up: To more than I can be.”
