My plans for today have been delayed so I am going through the items I saved on Facebook. I confess I am the worst at watching videos. I think because I can read faster than the video plays. But…When I listened to this video it brought me to tears. It is a song I have loved since childhood.

31 of Nashville’s Studio Singers using their cell phones during Nashville’s Safer at Home order to record and lift their collective voices to share a message of hope and encouragement during these challenging days. It is well. 

Hmmm…. the embed flashes when I insert the You Tube link. Trying the site where I first saw it

If you viewed it tell me what you think. I loved that most of the musicians were in their stay home clothes and many didn’t even have on make up!

By and by, Lord, by and by

In the sky, Lord, in the sky
