Thankful... Day 27

I was already thankful for music once this month but I just have to thank the Lord for bringing together our singing this morning. My family sang "Count Your Blessings" this morning in church for special music.We sing 4 part harmony A Capella. My husband sang the melody/lead, my daughters Rachel and Jessica sang alto, I sang tenor, Christopher and Nathan sang bass. All week long we have felt antagonistic when trying to practice singing. Yesterday my husband and I were really struggling with facing Christmas with him being unemployed for 20 months now. Then this morning my sons had an argument to start off the day. Once we got to church, however, the Lord seemed to smooth things out. Each of us was touched by the scripture reading and songs chosen by our Pastor and praise team. I am thankful we were able to have time to praise the Lord before we had to do our special music. This song especially touched me and my son Christopher...

I thank the Lord for music. I thank him that his word and music bring such peace to us. I thank him that he answered the prayers I prayed about our singing and how the family was getting along. I am thankful that he allowed us to feel thankful again before we had to sing.

Blessings. I love the song "Count Your Many Blessings." Because my church no longer sings the old songs, I always work with my kids on the 4 verses of that song every day for the 30 days before Thanksgiving.

This year, they were sad when we had to put the song away again until next year.
