Do We Really Mean What we Sing?*

  • We sing "Sweet Hour of Prayer" and pray only a few minutes each day.
  • We sing "I Love to Tell the Story" and seldom mention Jesus to anybody.
  • We sing "Blest be the Tie" and let the slightest offense sever it.
  • We sing "Onward Christian Soldiers" and wait to be drafted.
  • We sing "Serve the Lord with Gladness" and gripe about all we have to do.
  • We sing "Cast Thy Burden on the Lord" and then worry ourselves into a nervous breakdown.

Something to think about, for sure- I know that I don't mean what I sing a lot of the time. Do you?

NoteWorthy Music 2010 Pictures

More pictures of NoteWorthy!! I'll probably post more later, once I get more pictures from other people, but here are some for right now. Enjoy!! :-)

My children's choir team :-)

We got a little tired of writing songs/orchestrating (not sure which one we were doing :-)), and decided to sit in the windowsills and watch the amazing thunderstorm... Tons of fun :-)

The whole class (plus Josh, one of the teachers) in our matching T-shirts that we made

NoteWorthy Music 2010

Finally posting something else on my blog!! :-) I've been busy up here in Indiana for the NoteWorthy class, so I haven't really had time to post anything... However, our final concert was Friday night, so I figured I would post a few pictures this morning. I'll post more later!! :-) These are of me and my two roommates. In the first picture, from left to right, it's Becca, me, and Natalia. :-)
