I have often thought that if life were a musical, it would be more fun! Actually this past weekend, the kids and I were brainstorming about our upcoming Spring Break Stay-cation and Norah and I voted that one day should be a musical morning!
Everything would be set to music ... we would sing out the breakfast options, sing through quarrels and sing our way through folding the laundry. Unfortunately, the other family member voted it down. I guess Norah and I could always have our own mini-musical morning ... just to drive the rest of the family nuts!
I think this is genetic, by the way. My mom can turn anything into a song and she claims that she learned it from her grandmother. I think it's a wonderful inheritance!
Here are a few little ditties from my youngest. She may not get all the words and letters right, but she is aspiring to have her life set to music, too. And that makes me happy because a singing child is a happy child!
Actually the Psalms in the Old Testament are filled with songs! The writers of the Psalms often wrote with the purpose of calling the people to worship in song because music is a gift from God ... an opportunity for us to turn our hearts and voices to Him. And when we do that, joy will follow.
Take time today to make a joyful noise to God! I think you'll find some happiness there, too!
3 He put a new song in my mouth,
a hymn of praise to our God.
Many will see and fear the LORD
and put their trust in him.
