One of my favorite singer/songwriters is Nicole Nordeman. She is one of my most favored because, with so many of her songs, when I sing along,  I feel like I am personally speaking with the Lord through the gorgeous lyrics and music she has written.  She writes lyrics that express an understanding of faith which seems very familiar to my heart. When I sing those special words, I truly feel as though I am having a private moment of worship…just Him and me. I am so grateful to Nicole for sharing her gift of music such that I may connect with my Lord in such a powerful and meaningful way.

I love so many of Nicole’s songs, but the one I love the most, the one that makes my heart stir every time I hear it, is “Every Season.”  The words are sheer poetry to me. I share the lyrics and a link to the music below:

Every evening sky, an invitation 
To trace the patterned stars 
And early in July, a celebration 
For freedom that is ours 
And I notice You in children’s games 
In those who watch them from the shade 
Every drop of sun is full of fun and wonder 
You are summer

And even when the trees have just surrendered 
To the harvest time 
Forfeiting their leaves in late September 
And sending us inside 
Still I notice You when change begins 
And I am braced for colder winds 
I will offer thanks for what has been and what’s to come 
You are autumn

And everything in time and under heaven 
Finally falls asleep 
Wrapped in blankets white, all creation 
Shivers underneath 
And still I notice you when branches crack 
And in my breath on frosted glass 
Even now in death, You open doors for life to enter 
You are winter

And everything that’s new has bravely surfaced 
Teaching us to breathe 
What was frozen through is newly purposed 
Turning all things green 
So it is with You 
And how You make me new 
With every season’s change 
And so it will be 
As You are re-creating me 
Summer, autumn, winter, spring

Take a couple of minutes of your time and be blessed by this beautiful video someone made of my favorite song.
