When I was about eight or nine years of age there was a chorus we sang in church:
Sing The Clouds Away
Sing the clouds away, Night will turn to day; If you’ll sing and sing and sing You’ll sing the clouds away. Smile the clouds away, Night will turn to day; If you’ll smile and smile and smile You’ll smile the clouds away. Sing and smile and pray, Pray and pray and pray; Night will turn to day, No matter what they say; Sing and smile and pray, That's the only way If you’ll sing and smile and pray You’ll drive the gloom away. You can bet I will be singing, shouting and praying today!
Oh, and by the way, add these words and sing and shout and pray with the simple faith of a child ... and it really works.
One day I was walking home from school with my sister and it started to rain. "Marilyn, we need to sing that little song from church about making the clouds go away."
"OK, which song?"
"Sing the clouds away," and so we started singing and skipping (as little girls often do!) along the sidewalk on our walk home. We were not even the least surprised when the clouds cleared and we walked home barely wet from when the sprinkles had first started!
Have a blessed day my friends ...
SING ... SHOUT ... PRAY!!
Some good things are on the horizon and about to happen in all of our lives.
