Not Forgotten

For some reason, a number of close people in our lives have received bad news during the past two weeks. And, as you’ve no doubt heard, last night a major earthquake hit our part of the world. We did not feel anything, but it was another close reminder of how fragile our world and our lives really are.

I was at a loss of what music to play this morning until I remembered the poignant old Shaker hymn, “Not One Sparrow is Forgotten”. This touchingly beautiful arrangement was done by William Hawley.

Not one sparrow is forgotten,
E’en the raven God will feed; 
And the lily of the valley 
From His bounty hath its need. 
Then shall I not trust Thee, Father, 
In Thy mercy have a share? 
And through faith and prayer, my Mother, 
Merit Thy protecting care?

  1. I didn't even think about the tiles… it's funny but when these things happen, tiles don't matter. It's the health and safety of people we love that becomes the most important thing in the world.
