“A Southern story of second chances.”
That’s one of the tag lines for
How Sweet the Sound.
It’s fitting, I think. So many of the characters have been through trials and are just plain tired of trying to find a God who seems so elusive in the midst of their pain and shame.
But strange things happen when we reach the end of our selves.
Second chances come around.
More because we choose to take them than because they’re handed to us.
How might God be asking you to take a chance today?

shadows spatter across the gray horizon
like hard coal
against the brown withered winterscape
all the ground groaning for life
the nevermore of blackbirds
the red stain on the wing
stripes of crimson
fighting against the fickle
feathered bones pushing heavenward
as if blood surely does redeem
golden light an accent
One of the main characters in
is the survivor of an horrific crime. How Sweet the Sound
Do you ever wonder if God will truly save you from great pain and suffering?
Do you wonder, if He saved you once, will He save you again?
