It’s Friday! Finally! That means it’s 5 Minute Friday…here are the rules, courtesy of The Gypsy Mama, Lisa Jo Baker:
1. Write for 5 minutes flat for pure unedited love of the written word.
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. Be generous and leave an encouraging comment for the person who linked up before you. That’s the best part about this community.
And if you don’t have a blog, feel free to leave your five minutes of writing as a comment. And we’ll love on you there.
Today’s prompt is:
Sing a new song unto the Lord,
Okay, I can’t sing well and I’m the first to admit it. My mom used to shush me in church, which really broke my heart. After all, we are told that we are to rejoice and sing and praise Him and singing is one of the best ways to do so. Angels sing to Him. Choirs of cherubim and seraphim sing to Him.
But, my mom always told me to shush.
Well, dear mother, I don’t listen to that shushing anymore.
I sing loudly and with joy. All that my Lord wants is for me to sing His praises. He doesn’t mind that I’m off-key…waaaaaaaaaaaay off-key. All my Lord wants is for join in and to make a joyful noise.
I promise, it’s joyful and it’s noise.
