Today’s prompt- Sing
Important ‘Sings’ in my life
First School School song I learned at 7 years old –
The Wise Man Built His House Upon A Rock
Cousins singing patriotic songs at the top of our lungs in the spare bedroom at Grandma and Grandpa Ripley’s house, I was 12 years old.
At a Sunday morning worship service my dad and I sang
I Don’t Know Who Holds Tomorrow, but I know who holds my hand. I was 16.
My Husband-to-be sang A Wedding Prayer at our wedding 50 years ago this June. He was in charge of the music, I was expecting a love song, I guess he knew what we would really need. I was 17.
Our children birthday’s – you weren’t a year older until Happy birthday was sung, loud and off key.
A little tune I made up for my first grandson, singing while I rocked him, You’re my special Alex! 18 years ago.
Too big for rocking now!
Singing has always been an important part of my life
in the good times and in the sorrowful ones
to express joy and to gain hope.
