New Page "The Choir" Added

Greetings, Dear Ones!

Please join me in praying for the Lord's blessing, the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, and the covering and protection of the Holy Angels for our children and their teachers, instructors, coaches, professors, administrators and security personnel who are returning for the first full week of school since the end of the Summer vacation! May Almighty God have mercy upon each and every one of them.

I have added a new poem page entitled The Choir.

This poem has an interesting story behind it:

 In my home church when I was a young lady, we had several accomplished singers. However, there was a particular Sister in the congregation who had two daughters who both had beautiful voices and, to hear her carry on, you would believe that she was instrumental in them having received their voices. And, of course, the goodly Sister never failed to let you - who "though" you could sing - know that you were no match in the singing department against her gifted daughters. 

Now, on any given Sabbath, you  could expect to hear one or both of the sisters singing, and on this particular Sabbath, every time an item of special music was announced, one of her daughters go up to "perform." Well, they were on a roll at that particular Sabbath evening's program, and the goodly Sister was in kiddie goat heaven!

I guess it was about the third announced item of special music when both daughters got up to go to the rostrum that their dear Mother outdid herself!

She jumped up and, proud as a peacock in all its glory, gleefully shouted: "My STARS!"

Without missing a beat, several of the other singers who has been stung by her insults on their talents responded: "Mon-STARS!"

Sufficed to stay, that was the end of that type of behavior.

Well, go have yourself a read, and have a blessed day at work, school, or at home, whatever your chosen activity.
