Sing Praises All Servants!

I've been meaning to share this for awhile... Every year I pray and ask the Lord to show me where we need to strengthen. I've been trying for years....I mean YEARS to have a regular praise and worship time with Bible. Not just learning Bible history, but a topical study, personal prayer and music...

Well so far so good. We've been starting our days with a great hymn sing along. It comes with a book and Cd's with all the parts played separately and together. Can I just say, I don't know what ever made me think I could be a music teacher and vocal major! We (meaning myself and brood) sound like a bunch of a cackling hens being pulled through chicken wire by a raccoon! We start out fine and then go higher and higher. We crack each other up! I hope were aren't offensive....He knows our hearts, but sometimes we're BAD (and I don't mean good). The title is: Home Discipleship Hymnbook.

After that we pray with the Little's and read a scripture with a story. Then the chef works on a coloring page while the next oldest copies the scripture and draws a picture that goes with the story.

While they are doing that the 2 oldest chickadees and I are going through Raising Maidens of Virtue. We also each have a prayer journal that they are learning to use and make their own. Some days we just read scripture and pray if we are feeling led to.

So that's it. I'm so grateful to be doing it. The music is a extra nice blessing..........don't be looking for our CD anytime soon!

Praise Him. Praise Him all you little children..... song in my head.

Very sweet. I struggle with finding time and focus to read my bible. I wish my brain didn't work on Shuffle while I try to focus.

Nice-I'm beginning kindergarten this year with my older daughter and have been trying to decide what to do about morning devotions-I'll be looking into this.
Thanks for sharing.

One day one of my daughters said, "Is the music in my head bothering you?" LOL!
Keep prayin'!
