These kids are made for praise {Mama Braggin’ Monday}

Don’t you just love it when you hear a children’s choir singing praise to the Lord?  I do.  It’s one of the sweetest sounds on earth in my opinion.  Kids were made for it.  And they love it.

Our church doesn’t just do children’s choir.  Each year, the kids have the opportunity to pick an “elective” to do along with the more traditional music / choir portion of their time.  It has always been in recognition that there are other ways to praise the Lord through creative arts.  They had choices of drama, dance, woodworking, photography and others.  This year, Sarah chose art. 

On Mother’s Day, the kids did a special presentation during the Worship Service to show off everything they had worked on since January.  They sang and also had all of the kids’ art projects on display.  Sarah had about four art projects that she had worked on over the course of their time.  This is just one.


Their presentation was wonderful during the service.  I should know.  I had to be up there with them just to get my non-performing 4 year old son to be up there.  He’s so funny.  He knows the songs and says he’ll go up and sing, but when it comes down to it, he just can’t make himself go up on stage and perform.   

But that’s okay.  He was made for praise and he still praises the Lord.  Just not on stage.
