12 and 13 - Staff and Music

Day 12: Staff

12As God's chosen ones, holy and beloved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience. 13Bear with one another and, if anyone has a complaint against another, forgive each other; just as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. 14Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. 15And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in the one body. And be thankful. 16Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly; teach and admonish one another in all wisdom; and with gratitude in your hearts sing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs to God. 17And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
                                                                                    Colossians 3:12-17

One of the greatest blessings I have in life is the people I work with. They are a dedicated group of people who have amazing gifts and work well together. I know there are times I must frustrate them (like coming up with new and crazy ministries and ways to share our message with others), but they handle my craziness well.

So today I am thankful for the staff at this church. They are a great group of people and have blessed me in ways they can never imagine.

What people in your life are a blessing to you?

Day 13: Music

It is good to give thanks to the LORD,
to sing praises to your name, O Most High;
2to declare your steadfast love in the morning,
and your faithfulness by night,
3to the music of the lute and the harp,
to the melody of the lyre.
                                    Psalm 92:1-3

On of the great joys of driving around town with the girls is listening to music with them. There are a few of the music TV shows that we watch together as a family, and when the girls hear the one of the songs played on that show or the voice of one of the judges blaring through the sound system, they squeal with delight.  Music is powerful, and hearing it come from the mouths of those girls makes it even more so.

So today I celebrate the blessing of music and the affect it has on our entire family.

How has music been a blessing to you?
