A joyful noise to the Lord

Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise.

-Psalm 98:4

Tonight was the monthly singing party for our church. Even though I’ve gone to this church for over 2 years, I’ve never been to one of the get togethers they have during the year. However, we were invited by several other members to this one. I was originally told it was last week, but it got changed to tonight. Unfortunately, my husband made other plans for tonight so the kids and I went without him.

It was a great party. Our pastor has a huge house so that is where we met. The first half everyone sat around and visited while eating a pot luck light meal. Then we all (adults and children) went upstairs for singing. When we sing, we do not use instruments. There were probably 50 people there like a giant, all-ages choir. It was amazing!

Around 930 the party broke up because the young kids (mine included) were getting tired. Still they had enough energy to play a last game of freeze tag in the dark outside on the way to the vehicles.

  1. Have you ever been to a Scared Harp singing?

  2. No. Never heard of it.

  3. Oops, had a dyslexia moment, should be sacred harp. Sacred Harp is traditional American Music. This is one of my favorites.
