Music and Tears

I always remember The Battle Hymn of the Republic bringing Boo to tears. I never understood because I'm a mad cryer not a happy cryer. Last night as I worshiped I realized there is one song that consistently brings me to tears. It paints such a beautiful, powerful, and personal picture of the gospel that Holy Week seems like the perfect time to share it.

And because celebrating Jesus seems like a great time o look toward His return and because I love my mom:

*A sidenote: I spent several hours trying to find my favorite version of the Battle Hymn of the Republic until I realized that my favorite version is Aunt Connie and Boo singing it. Since I don't have that version the Cactus Cuties will have to do.
