The students were led into the room. Each class accompanied by their teacher. Then each group one by one, rose to perform their song. Those in the front row, center state, held up large letters, one by one, to spell out the title of the song.
As the class was to sing, C is for Christmas, a child would hold up the letter C. Then, H is for Happy, and on and on until each child holding up his portion had presented the complete message, Christmas Love.
The performance was going smoothly, until suddenly, we noticed her - a small quiet girl in the fron row holding the letter M upside down - totally unaware here letter M appeared as a W. A hush came over the audience and eyes began to widen. For when the last letter was held high, the message read loud and clear:
And I believe He still is.
FANTASTIC FRIDAY - SING YOUR WAY THROUGH THE HOLIDAYS!
Singing is an almost universal pastime, but did you know that, no matter where or when it is done, it can also contribute to good health simply by raising spirits and self-esteem? Not only does it promote artistic expression, and provide friendship and community when we participate in groups, but singing also releases stress and increases lung capacity and cardiovascular health - more oxygen to the brain/increased alertness
Singing is ultimately a great de-stressor as it’s difficult to sing and worry at the same time.
I believe that the finest carols are often sung by the poorest voices; from hearts made warm by the wonder of the season.
I never need a good reason to sing but Christmas carols have to be my all time favorite. I hope you all will join me in singing a song or two or three or four today and have a FANTASTIC Friday!
