In honor of my Mom’s birthday today, I am sharing the meaning of her favorite hymn Ivory Palaces by Henry Barraclough with you.
The song’s Bible verse is: Psalm 45:8
All thy garments smell of myrrh, and aloes, and cassia, out of the ivory palaces, whereby they have made thee glad.
Our Mom dedicated her life to Christ, as a pastor’s wife and a deaconess. She faithfully served along our Dad to pastor the Beekman Baptist Church for over 20 years. Mom had one of the most beautiful singing voices and often sung in the church choir. She even sang while doing housework.
I am blessed knowing that God and our folks are watching over us from heaven.
