A Time for Singing

O come, let us sing unto the Lord: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation. ~Psalm 95:1

There is always singing or music playing in this house. Having a husband who is very musical and loving music myself its rare there isn't a cd playing, instrument playing or voice singing. I am the first to admit that I have a terrible voice but thankfully the only thing God requires of me is to "make a joyful noise". In turn we spend a lot of time teaching our kids songs and hymns, we usually sing 3 or 4 after family devotions together. The thing about our kids though is outside the confines of this house they are very shy to sing for people. One of our good friends who is the song leader at church is one of the few who knows their willingness to sing because they are like family. One evening at church he prepared a song with the boys and him to sing for our church family. He managed to get 3 boys up there...Owen was having nothing to do with it! :) He's our extremely shy one. So for our family and friends who miss out on this part of our kids lives here are a few videos. They are not professional singers by any means but they do understand the joy that comes from singing praises to God! Click on the underlined links and they will take you to the you tube video. Enjoy. :)

1-2-3 Jesus Loves Me: Will & Jena
If you are not familiar with this song the last line is "9,10 it's time to end there's no time to sing it again" and Ben always does this part with the kids in a crying, sad voice...

Daniel Was a Man of Prayer: Gabe
This was when Gabe was 4 so about 2 years ago.

Showers of Blessings: The 5 older ones
Jena was not in the mood for singing when we did this but often
you will hear her walking around the house singing this song.

My God is So Great
Will is SO loud. He loves to sing and if he knows the song well
he lets it all out! :)
