Make A Joyful Noise


Captured by Jim and his awesome camera phone...

Is it the mere innocence of the young child, or are we possibly on the road to a new/former trend where our youth is interested in the songs of Zion?
Jim had a former co-worker who, when instructed to raise his new infant under the songs of Zion replied that he planned on raising him under the songs of Zeppelin. As I roll my eyes about that story, I realize, that more and more, the ones in my generation and younger are exposed to this trend, that the songs and "amenities" this world has to offer are far more important to them than the songs of Zion. It's pictures like this one that warm my heart to think that maybe, just maybe, the next generation will be different. Maybe this young group will continue to desire to sing the precious hymns in our sanctuary. As they sing "Trust and Obey", I think that maybe they'll hear the words, and strive to serve the Lord in obedience throughout their lives. I know, as Danielle recently pointed out in her blog, that the world is waxing worse and worse, and the odds are stacked against them, but Lord help them (and us- whether we are parents or Aunts/Uncles or elder sisters or brethren in the church) to overcome the world's temptations!

Wow, that picture turned out very good. I thought it was hilarious how Katie Sue and Brady were just moving their mouths and staring at us when we came to watch. lol.
