Sunday Morning

                                           A big man with a big voice
                                           he rattled the rafters on Sunday mornings
                                           til I thought Jesus would come down from the cross   
                                           I bowed my head in embarrassment for him

                                           and for my ten year old self

                                           who wanted to jump up beside him and sing

                                           How great thou art / How great thou art 



  1. Nice one Teresa. "How Great Thou Art" is my favorite spiritual song. No one did it better than Elvis.

  2. I love that song and right after I wrote this, I spent some time driving and singing it wholeheartedly ... would love to hear that man sing it again ... no embarrassment at all ...

    Yes, Elvis did a great version...

  3. Wonderful moments, and powerful words here, the best, no doubt, "he rattled the rafters on sunday mornings til I thought jesus would come down from the cross"! Wow!
