Singing the Praises

Have you ever noticed sometimes spreading the word of God isn't as simple as it seems?
Sometimes as Christians when we speak of His Glory we can face critisism or negativity or are told to keep it to ourselves,and yet these same people want to know why we are so happy or upbeat all the time.You tell them why and some scoff or roll their eyes and on occasion you get an inquiry perhaps privately when nobody can see them.

Have you ever noticed when you get a song stuck in your head you just can't get it out no matter what?
But when you share it with others they get it stuck in their heads.
Perhaps it's time to Sing The Praises of God instead of preach it.
( I say preach as I don't always hear how I sound )
Do you know how you sound?

I write this, as I came into work and everyone seemed to be grumbling as usual in the staff room and me,well,I had this song stuck in my head. I love this song and I like to listen to it every day and sing it with everything that I am to my Lord.
Anyway I started to sing it and the next thing I know someone else joined in with the next line,followed by another and then another and the atmosphere in the room changed.
By days end I had almost everyone singing it throughout the store.
The mood went from cranky to giddy with a simple little song.
It was so great to see the negativity disappear.

What if we sang His praises with a song or a smile even when there is not one to be found within ourselves? There may be no actual scripture within these simple things but our actions of the Love we have for God may just touch another.
And someone just may ask
How can I be that Happy?
Time to Let God out of the Box

Here is the song I was singing.
I dare you not to smile and tap your feet.

Grandma of Green Gables

Well Grandma of Green Gables is home!
It was an amazing vacation
We didn't get to do all the things we wanted to do,but the most important thing was being blessed with being able to visit with Mike Rachel and Owen (The grumpy little shelf elf).
Owen didn't take well to grandma, I wonder why? Must have been the pigtales.
He shared his cars with Steve and I but he played shy the whole visit.
That's the hard part of being so far away from your grandchild. You are really just strangers that love you. Kinda freaky for a two year old.
Wait till he grows up and sees the pictures I took of him and I when he was asleep. I was getting my cuddles,even if it meant he had to be unconcious. Hahahaha
It rained every day and instead of being down about it I took the opportunity to enjoy the simple blessings around us that we tend not to notice.
A simple drop of rain.
And after a rainfall, my father once told me that the fairies like to come out and play,so I went hunting for them.
I did not find them,perhaps PEI fairies live in the land of red potatos.
Vickie I know where all the red ones are.
Anyway I am glad to be back and as I was telling Roxanne, I now feel comfortable with the kids being so far away. They have a wonderful life on the Island complete with wonderful friends.
They are Happy and as parents we are truly Happy for them as well.
