The Red Back Hymnal.....


I love singing out of this old familiar church hymnal.
Most of our "modern day" churches put the words to the songs on the big screen and have done away with using an actual song book.  We visited a church SONday evening as part of the Special Friends group from our church for them to perform their skit.  Before we left, I told Pappy I sure hoped they would sing some good old-fashioned songs....and God surely heard my request 'cause we stood and sang out of that old familiar book!!!  And, the pastor announced that sometime in June they'll be having an old-timey singing where they bring the piano down front and take requests shouted out from the congregation.

Just like in the good ole days!!!

Psalm 95:1-2
Come, let us sing to the Lord!
    Let us shout joyfully to the Rock of our salvation.
  Let us come to him with thanksgiving.
    Let us sing psalms of praise to him.

Breathing in Jesus,

Deb
