MAKE A JOYFUL NOISE..........

Well, its almost here! The Most wonderful time of the year! The Birth of the Lord Jesus! What a joyful time. A time to reflect , and to give of ourselves, and to stop and consider the true meaning of the season! I was on u tube today, pulling up Christmas Carols. I pulled up Dailey & Vincent singing one of the most beautiful carols of all time, BEAUTIFUL STAR OF BETHLEHEM. Now, I don't know about any of you, but two voices that blend together like theirs, just does something to me! I sat and wondered if angels could sound any prettier! My Husband was standing beside me, as we listened in awe! The melody & the harmony just blesses me through & through. Now, I love to sing myself, not that I'm any good at it, but you can be so blest by good music. Singing and making melody to the Lord. The Bible says ,MAKE A JOYFUL NOISE UNTO THE LORD. Nothing reigns down blessings on you , like singing & praising & worshipping the Lord. Many times if IM going through rough spots in my life, I just start singing & praising God! Its got me through many a depressing moment in my life. I lost my Mom 2 yrs. ago this coming April. Traveling to Ohio from South Carolina for the funeral was rough. Isaiah 43:2, and singing songs is how I made it through. Sometimes the grief would be so overwhelming, I didn't think I'd survive. Six months later, my Husband lost his Mom. Yes, we've encountered some rough patches, but God saw us through! Songs and beautiful music have always been a big part of my life! God bless the beautiful voices like Dailey & Vincent who sings us music that blesses our souls. Whether we can sing & carry a tune or not, we all still need to make a joyful noise unto the Lord. As we all gather our families together for our celebrations Let us remember to think about those that are less fortunate than us, and pray for them. Let us remember to count our blessings, and if our heart leads us, make a melody to The Lord by maybe singing a Christmas carol or two. I promise you, it will lighten your load and make you smile! "MERRY CHRISTMAS"! Until next time, God bless you all with a Happy holiday season.

  3. You are so right. Jesus came to trade us the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness...praising His name is a wonderful way to defeat the gloom that settles down around us. It will put the devil on the run every time! So happy to read your blogs. I enjoy them so much. Love you!
