Favorite Hymn

 A favorite hymn of mine is "It is Well with My Soul".   The words were penned by a man who lost his four children at sea.   At the very spot where their ship wrecked, he wrote these following words.













When peace like a river attendeth my way,
when sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to say,
"It is well, it is well with my soul."
                   Horatio G Spafford










"It is well               with my soul,
               It is well                     with my soul,



It is well, it is well with my soul.







                                    Dear Friends - wishing that all is well with your soul today!  Have a wonderful Sunday afternoon.

  3. So very apt for me today....Yes it is well with my soul, well with my soul. We always have to give blessings for what we have in the face of adversity....not ponder and focus on what we have not. Have a lovely Sunday, Debbie.

  6. Debbie, I do love that song too. I also love "How Great Thou Art." Back in Massachusetts I started attending a Nazarene church when I was getting a divorce from my first husband. My second husband was happy to attend with me even though he wasn't practicing any specific religion. We attended there until we moved here to Maine and this place is so beautiful it is like the whole of outdoors is my church now. These songs come to mind often and I still feel so close to God when I meditate on them. Thanks so much for bringing this one to mind for me today. Blessings to you and yours.

  13. A Even as a child, my favorite part of attending church was singing the hymns. This one is so very beautiful and heart-rending; knowing the story behind it makes it all the more priceless. Autumn peace to you!

  15. How heartbreaking - to lose not one but four children. Knowing and trusting in our Lord would be the only way to survive that. Even so...we lost a son in an accident and without faith I would have gone mad.
    Wish I knew the music to this to see if I recognized it.

  17. Oh Debbie, I remember that song well. Sadly, it isn't used as much these days. Thank you for sharing the heartbreaking story behind the song. It all makes sense now.

  18. I LOVE this hymn, though one can sense the heartache underpinning it so strongly; we sing it quite frequently at our traditional Methodist service. The poor man and his wife actually endured other tragedies as well besides the loss of their young daughters :( But it reminds us of our Christian hope and peace which keep us pressing on till we can be in that place where there is no more pain or sadness. I trust all is well with your soul, dear friend. Your paintings are beautiful *hugs*
