Comments on: Singers Aren’t the Only Ones Who Can Sing http://www.housewifetheologian.com/singers-arent-only-ones-who-can-sing/ The Gospel Interrupting the Ordinary Sat, 21 Jun 2014 17:32:56 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=3.9.1 By: Tim http://www.housewifetheologian.com/singers-arent-only-ones-who-can-sing/#comment-2687 Fri, 29 Jun 2012 13:36:46 +0000 http://www.housewifetheologian.com/?p=1236#comment-2687 Amen, Margie. There’s a young woman in our church who can’t read notes or words but can sing the songs from memory. She sings with gusto, though, and I have the same impression of how her singing sounds to God’s ears. Beautiful.

He can’t read words, much less the notes. But, he sings out from the heart, just making a joyful noise (literally). My eyes have often watered while singing next to him, knowing that the Lord is hearing a beautiful melody coming from his lips.

Great way to look at it, Karen. Was it Aristotle and Socrates who wrestled with whether be is as do, or do is as be?

One thing I know is that God loves our heartfelt praises borne of faith here and now just as much as he will love the ones we sing in eternity!

For one thing, it hits close to home (I CAN’T sing, but have always loved singing along anyway, best as I can.) But more importantly, I think you illustrate here the power of–to put it less eloquently than you do here–”fake it till you make it.” There’s something about DOING that helps us to BECOME what we do. And somewhere along the way, coming to believe it, too.

I don’t have a blog of my own, but I do guest posts here and there. Many gracious bloggers have allowed me to visit their places, and I am so blessed to have people like Aimee here at HWT encourage me along in this writing stuff.

P.S. If you’d like a list of some posts, I can email them to you at your classical quest address.

Do you have a blog? I think readers could benefit from a regular dose of your insights.
