And he said unto them, Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest a while: for there were many coming and going, and they had no leisure so much as to eat. Mark 6:31 KJV
Our family times matter. Whether we are cleaning the house, going to the beach or heading to church on Sunday, the fact that we are doing them together makes it a memory worth keeping. I am loving the Mullett family picnic as they sing one of my favorite old hymns played with an Irish sounding lilt. I pray that your summer activities include taking time off, even if it is just a long weekend and build memories as a family that will last a lifetime.
Here is a peek into our fun singing session yesterday. I hope it puts a smile on your face and an attitude of praise in your heart no matter what you are facing this morning. I’ll continue reposting from my other blog “Walking With Lambs” for a While. But if you are interested in or would like to be involved in Nursing Home Ministry I suggest that you follow over on that site so we can become a network of people committed to the long term care community.
Clap your hands, all peoples!
Shout to God with loud songs of joy! Psalm 47:1 ESV
If you think we only sing some old slow hymns at our Thursday morning meeting, then you have never joined us. If we did that half my folks would fall asleep! So, I invite you to join us for this medley which I titled, “Country Hoedown at Sunshine Home. Get ready to clap, maybe stomp your feet and please feel free to sing along!
We are struggling a bit here with my wife being sick the last several days. She went for Covid testing and was negative but still is not feeling well and we have not been out much. This session was recorded a few weeks ago and gives you not just the music but a bit of what real ministry is like at nursing home. We have people walking through, folks coming in late (remember they are in wheelchairs). Taking the time to interrupt what we are doing and greeting them by name helps us remember that we are family and then we can worship together like a real family! I hope you enjoy this rendition of Peace Like a River and that God would pour out His blessings in your life today!
