Redeemer

There is a Redeemer! Jesus God’s own Son; Precious Lamb of God, Messiah, Holy One. Thank you oh my Father, for giving us Your Son, and leaving Your Spirit until the work on earth is done.  words by Melody Greena-music-there-is2

 

 

I never imagined when I joined the choir that I would be waking up to songs about God my Savior, singing in my head. It’s a bonus!

The Rock

“Where do I go when there’s no one else to turn to? Who do I talk to when no one wants to listen? Who do I lean on when there’s no foundation stable? I go to the Rock I know that’s able. I go to the Rock of my salvation. I go to the Stone that the builders rejected. I run to the Mountain and the Mountain stands by me.” words by E.K. HEYSER

This is one of the songs I’m learning in my immersion with choir music. I love the words and thought I would share them since I woke up early this morning with this song in my head! Nice way to begin a day.

Choir!

I’ve joined the Church choir! Since hitting the right note for me seems more like a miracle than the norm, I think I have a bit of a cheek. However, I have been immersing myself in the music. At first it seemed like a foreign language. Learning to read notes, a fine art. Through perseverance I think I’m catching on. I joined because I thought singing to God would be nice; another way of thinking about Him and immersing myself in Him. A very sweet man said, “it’s the voice God gave you, so you might as well use it to sing praise to Him”. That was all the encouragement I needed.

Heavenly Ukulele Music?

I am reading about a boy who came back from heaven but didn’t like the music he heard as he entered. He was six years old and the music was played on instruments with long strings. I’m guessing harp? It got me thinking about my favorite musical instrument, my ukulele, so I broke it out, dusted it off, found my music sheets and began singing away,  playing all my religious songs with fervor. Yes, I’m reading another great book to make you praise God with a grateful heart. I’m grateful for how remarkable, wise and wonderful this child is. Alex Malarkey is his name and the book is The Boy Who Came Back From Heaven by Kevin and Alex Malarkey. I’m grateful that no one but God heard me sing. The Uke in the picture is made from a cigar box and sounds great. It is #45 made in Austin, Texas by B Gann.
