I have come to the conclusion you cannot teach an old dog new tricks. I tried, y’all, I tried hard. I had three, I said THREE devices trying to party last night with my favorite online group – Five Minute Friday, hosted by Kate Motaung. I tried Tweetchat, Tweetdeck, Twitter…but to no avail. I could see the party going on and there I stood, or should I say lay…in our warm cozy bed, surrounded by pillows and cords! I gave in to the pressure of falling lids and dozed off. I learn this morning that Kate said…and o! what a glorious word!
My very first thought?
I sing because I’m happy! I sing because I’m free! His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me. (circa 1905)
My very second thought?
Wild thing…you make my heart sing! (circa 1965)
I know, right?
Hey! I am a sinner, saved by grace and I love to sing!
This past Sonday morning as we worshiped the Resurrected King of kings, the music at Grace Covenant was really good – we couldn’t have asked for a better selection of songs to celebrate the Risen One. The singers of our little family group, Hannah, Marni, and I we were in the heavenlies! Eyes closed, hands and arms lifted, bodies swaying as we sang…
What a beautiful name it is – What a beautiful name it is – The name of Jesus Christ our King…
O! we sang. We worshiped. Because…
We are free.
He makes our hearts sing.
