I made this for Patter’s Hymn and Scripture challenge found here. This week’s hymn is Standing on the Promises. This is one of my favorite hymns because it reminds me of my Grandpa.
When I was younger and we were visiting, he would take us to church with him. I’m sure my mom and grandma attended as well, but I just remember going with him.
The church is one room with a wood burning stove in the middle. (think Little House on the Prairie) I remember singing this hymn and hearing the bass tones of other men in the church. Just a memory of comfort and warmth. Afterwards he would take us to a gas station/diner and let us order chocolate milk. That was a big treat, possibly showing my age! 🙂
Now that I think about it, I would like to visit that old church again and take some pictures. Lots of childhood memories there.
Just an observation: I know this hymn to be on page 121 and I think another version on 122. Whenever I attend a different church with hymnals, I always check. Apparently the old hymnal we have at home is a different denomination, but I found it!
