I woke up this morning hearing a song in my head.
I love it when that happens.
But this wasn’t just any song…
Utterly beautiful, as I listened to the inaudible music this was the first thing that came to my mind:
“Heaven sounds like a banjo.”
Listen to this song and see if you don’t agree…
A side note –
a) Sufjan Stevens (who wrote and performed this piece) is one of my all-time favorite artists.
b) The title of this song “All the Trees of the Field will Clap their Hands,” is based on one of my favorite passages of Scripture in the book of Isaiah.
c) God has used this song, in combination with one of my favorite things (a.k.a. Trees…) and a recent road trip I took this summer to reveal profound truths in my life. But more of that later…
