There were two events yesterday that could easily bring tears to a grown man’s face:
- Listening to “Amazing Grace” played by the Idaho Falls Firefighters Pipes and Drums in the morning parade.
- Listening to “Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing” just before the grand finale of the Melaleuca Freedom Celebration. I was looking at the flag fluttering on top of Shilo Inn. I was also watching the bombs bursting. And I was listening to my wife singing with the loudspeakers,
O to grace how great a debtor
Daily I’m constrained to be!
Let Thy goodness, like a fetter,
Bind my wandering heart to Thee.
Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it,
Prone to leave the God I love;
Here’s my heart, O take and seal it,
Seal it for Thy courts above.
