My birthday...

hope dance




My 44th birthday marks the age my mother was when she had me. We spent the evening at my mother and stepdad’s church helping to provide a bit of music for an hymn-sing. It was a really nice time. Especially just to be together. Phoebe played her violin, too—“Jesus Loves Me” and that was a nice contribution. The last time we were there, my mom and stepdad sang a duet… Her first time, and at 88! That’s pretty good. Never too old to start something new.

Today, let’s all sing an hymn of praise to God, or better yet, just offer up a new song to Him.

Him, our audience of One.
