Peace like a river.
My friend Mark Ovaska and I walked around the lower east side the other night & took some photos. I thought I’d share. By the way – how are you doing? I’m OK. A bit of a tough few weeks, actually …
You’re probably all up on your hymn-trivia and you’re aware of this already, but if not, you know “It Is Well With My Soul” ? Did you know that it was written just after the lyricist (Horatio Spafford) found out his four daughters had drowned at sea? After learning where the words came from, I can barely sing them anymore.
When peace like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to say,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.
It is very well with my soul.
