Praise Time

A few weeks ago, I was just starting to get into the Christmas spirit. I had my music on C.D.s and I was happily singing along. When I got to my grandson's, he was playing with his advent calendar. He loves to play with the baby Jesus puffy decoration that goes on Dec. 25. He was putting it various places. I told him he had to treat it with respect. I said, "He grew up to be a very important man. In fact, He grew up to be ... and then I just started to sing the Hallelujah chorus. "King of Kings and Lord of Lords forever and ever..."

I looked at him at he was smiling. I sang it again and he raised his hands like I did and sang King of Kings, forever." We had our own little praise party, there in Ty's little bedroom.

On the way home I was listening to Hark The Herald Angels Sing. I love the line from the Amy Grant version "Come Desire of Nations come, fix in us thy humble home." Oh, yeah. And in O Come All Ye Faithful "Word of the Father, now in flesh appearing." Think about that one. And one more, in Joy To The World "Son of God, loves' pure light." May that light, sent by the Father, fill your heart, your home, and your world...forever and ever.

Merry Merry Christmas - Nancy


  1. There is SO much "teaching" and truth in the lines of great hymns and many of the Christmas carols. We are blessed to know them and blessed to pass them on to our children and grands.

    We have three adopted grandchildren - all with African roots. I enjoy collecting the Addy books (and doll "stuff") to pass on to them. :)

    Have a Merry Christmas, Nancy, celebrating our King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

  2. Goosebumps, no... God bumps here in Paris, IL, thanks to you and the Lord made flesh! Thanks for sharing this wonderful story. I love it when wee ones sing praises to the Lord!
