Sing Softly and Sweetly

After a long day walking around the village of Baux-de-Provence followed by a hike in the hills of Elig my feet were threatening to fall off. I was revived enough to make it down the hill after seeing a happy scene of locals also out enjoying the day. (I must admit I was envious of the darling baby’s mode of transport. :)

My cousin and I had parked our car in a church parking lot. As we approached the vehicle I thought I heard angels singing. Walking towards the entry of the church I saw a small choir of women rehearsing.  Not wanting to intrude I was happy just to listen outside the door. You just can’t beat the acoustics of an old French church.

It was a good reminder that we never know who might be watching us and our actions.


Praise the Lord! For it is good to sing praises to our God; for it is pleasant, and a song of praise is fitting.~ Psalm 147:1

The Lord is my strength and my song, and he has become my salvation; this is my God, and I will praise him, my father's God, and I will exalt him. ~ Exodus 15:2

Beautiful--the sweet baby and the sound of praising God in song. God is everywhere, if we but take a moment to look and listen.

How sweet and those voices do sound like the voices of angels. Glad you got the pleasure to come upon that beautiful singing.

Your story is beautiful, and also pulls at one of my heartstrings!
I may have told you the story about my Dad and I at The Basilica du Sacré-Cœur in Paris. ( about 15 years ago) We were almost finished with our visit when a group of nuns walked in to pray together. My Dad looked at me and said. "The only thing that would make this day any better would be if the nuns started singing"! He barely got the words out of his mouth...Like you, we were blessed to hear the voices of angels.
Thank you for sharing this!
