On the heels of Easter weekend, I find this song in my head.

This is odd because I haven’t listened to it in a while. It came out of nowhere.

My musical tastes tend to not be too mainstream but Tenth Avenue North is an exception–I love them.

After really listening to the lyrics and reading them on the screen, I get why this song slid right on in to the inner workings of my mind.

Easter weekend is a topsy-turvy upside down period of three days in which my emotions are all over the board–a time of quiet sadness on Friday, knowing this is the day we set aside to remember the price that was paid.

Quiet and anticipation on Saturday.

And then Sunday. Utter and complete joy.

For He makes us white as snow. He’s in the business of reuniting with a specialty in reconciliation.

I breathe deep knowing it was finished so long ago.

I remember who I was then. I think of who I am now.

Truthfully, not so strikingly different.

But now I have Him.

And that has made all the difference.

The Road Not Taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim
Because it was grassy and wanted wear,
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I marked the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

– Robert Frost

Here’s the thing: I pray about these songs each week and it NEVER fails. God puts them in my mind so when I look on YouTube, I’m searching for a particular song. Sometimes the songs are a little obscure so I find some interesting stuff. “Hallelujah” is one of Tenth Avenue North’s lesser-known songs so there wasn’t a whole lot out there. With all due respect to the creator of this video, it’s a little heavy on the cheese scale.

Regardless, Worship Wednesday is about the music. Thanks for your grace.
