With my eyes closed
I hear something which is a much different experience than with them open. I have come to love closing my eyes during most of the liturgical settings at church. My very favorite time to do so is during the Sanctus. If I open my ears during this time, I hear a foretaste of things to come. These same people I sing with on Sunday, will sing with me in eternity. The same people who have gone before me and are with Christ, who sang with me earlier in my life, will sing with me in eternity and ARE singing with me. Opening my ears to hear as we open our lips and our mouth declare His praise. THESE ARE my favorite few minutes of the week.
