We have been enjoying a lot of Christmas music around here, and a lot of great music in general. It is unbelievable how much musical talent there is in the world. There are people of all races, ethnicity, religions, and backgrounds who have so much talent to offer. God does not seem to discriminate when it comes to handing out musical gifts, and we all have the opportunity to enjoy it.
(I have been a little disappointed with the exclusively secular “holiday music” played on the radio this year. Anyone else notice that?)
Today’s miracle is that my children are not limited to my gifts and talents, but they are born with gifts I never had, and probably never will. They seem to have all of my talents, plus all of their father’s as well. Maybe I’m slightly prejudiced, but they all are so awesome. Even had trouble doing my 5th grader’s spelling homework. I could spell the words, but the “creative” homework took too much brainpower. (I need to do more 2 page word searches w/o lists of what I’m looking for!) Thought I’d post some of Katie’s art today. For it to make sense you need to understand that even my stick people are kind of pathetic looking.
