Sunday Inspiration

Today was a good day. I went to church then took a little drive outside of town just to breath in some fresh air and see something new. I wanted to go somewhere I had never been before.... Idaho Falls isn't very big and  is surrounded by a lot of nothingness. Open fields, lots of dirt and sage brush, cows, barns, easy to think it's boring....I find it beautiful and refreshing...I didn't drive far, just far enough....

This morning "Abide with me, 'tis eventide" came on my Pandora station....It is such a beautiful song!! When I was in Brazil as a missionary, it was one of my favorite favorite hymns in Portuguese. In English the chorus says "Oh Savior stay this night with me, behold 'tis eventide." But in Portuguese I love the wording so much more!  "O Salvador vem ao meu lar, comigo vem morar."  Savior come to my home and live with me." I remember thinking that often when I was troubled or felt alone. Even when I was happy and felt his presence near. I remember thinking "Savior please come be with me and stay with me." He always wants to be with us, it's us who need to choose to keep Him with us always....

I'd love for you to hear a beautiful version HERE
I thought I would also add a version in Portuguese which is also very beautiful...HERE 

I hope you all have a wonderful week! I pray you can all feel the presence and love of the Savior at all times...
