Sunday- I get to sing hymns
Saying for the Day-A hymn is another doorway to God.
If you were to ask me what I like most about Sunday Worship I would have to say the hymns. I am not saying they are the most important thing because they aren’t. But they are what I enjoy most. I love to sing. This from a man who was asked by the choir director not to sing with the choir and to turn his microphone off during the hymns. This from a man who now runs out of breath on the third or fourth verse. I just love singing hymns.
I like all kinds of hymns. From the simple “Jesus Loves Me” to the mighty hymns of Bach I love them all. I love the old and the new.
When I sing a hymn I am pulled into the very presence of God. For that brief moment in time I am up on the mountain top. I hear God speak. I am reminded of his love. I am called to serve. I believe the Holy Spirit moves in the hymns in some special way.
When we used to go on trips as a family I drove my kids nuts singing Bible Camp songs. I tried to get them to sing along with me.
It is Sunday and soon I will be at St. Marks and singing. Life is good.
@@@@ News from Pigeon Falls– the little town in my basement where the trains still run, dragons fly, and another Variety Show is history:- The Pigeon Falls Pigeon Days Variety Show ended last night with the finest performance of the three nights. People felt that this might have been the greatest show in the history of Pigeon Days Variety Shows. Tommy UK astounded everybody by tapping and juggling at the same time and he didn’t drop a single ball. Vicki East sang the Pigeon Falls Song with its new verse and got a standing ovations. She wisely decided not to sing “Unless” again.The Pasty ladies did well. Old Mrs. Miller found one last tear jerking ballad to sing and had everybody crying.The act that stole the show was Toivo and Eino's rendition of "Tuna Casserole"which they got from the Garrison Keillor program on PBS. Eino came on wearing a dress and a bonnet and acted out calling people to super. Then Eino brought in big casserole with chips on top. At the close they put on angel wings and halos as they mimicked going to heaven. It was wonderfully done and their singing was even better than usual.
Next years group will be hard pressed to be as good as this one that is unless there is no Pigeon Falls next year.

We got to church this morning. Pastor Joel was back. The kids lead us in singing Jesus Loves me.
I napped in the afternoon and then watched television. I played some computer games. Now I need a breathing treatment. Betty has a new blog and yiu can comment on it. You can get to it through my links.
