Keeping Christ in Christmas in bits and pieces

Happy December 5th

Something to hum today: “Sing in Exaltation”

O Come all ye Faithful   

J. Reading  1692

 “Exaltation:” the state of being excited!  Elation of mind or feeling.

Make today sing out loud day!  When no one else is listening, sing in the shower, sing in the car, sing in your office, hum while you walk.  Today sing a prayer unto the Lord!  Sing the words as if they were your own.  Sing them with your heart and soul and feel a change come over you.

I discovered, reading the scriptures in Matthew 26:30,

that Jesus and his disciples sang a hymn before entering into the Garden of Gethsemane.

” And when they had sung an hymn, they went out into the mount of Olives.

I wonder why? Could singing be important to the Lord?

I wonder what they sang?

 Application: Tonight talk about this quiet moment as the candle is lit. Sing a Christmas song together and if  comfortable add that to your Christmas gathering each day.

 For my soul delighteth in the song of the heart; yea, the song of the righteous is a prayer unto me, and it shall be answered with a blessing upon their heads.  D&C 25:12
