Now that we’ve been in Florida for a while I look back and remember the worst part of Winter up North was not the snow and ice but the constant grey skies with a splash of chilly wind. In light of the grey skies and chilly wind we’ve all come through in 2020 I thought I’d begin with some gentle humor in verse with hopes it will brighten your day and shine a little light on the beginning of your 2021.


 Only ears can hear
 That’s just the way God made us
 If ears could see or hear
 They’d certainly betray us
 But when God fashioned ears
 Those humble awkward things
 That flop about and wiggle
 On little inner springs
 He made a way to tell us
 How much we’d been forgiven
 And then He set and tuned them
 To hear His words from heaven
 Oh - only ears can hear
 That’s just the way God made them
 Humble listening gifts
 That lead us to obey Him

My wife and I serve as members of a worship team at a multicultural church. Our members are from Brazil, Nepal and the U.S.. Because of the many languages and cultures in our local body we face unique challenges, such as how many songs will we do in English today? What new songs can we use in either language that are simple enough for the people to sing. The songs, the devotions and insights here are a small portion of some of the ways God is leading us as we push towards the goal. I pray that these will be both a blessing and an encouragement for those of you who may pass by Praise 2 Worship.
