We got ´em!

We got them and they got us. These little things, smaller than the eye can see, intruded our home last week. A series of viruses exchanged living quarters and hosts at least a dozen times leaving us ,their hosts, tired, achy and not so sing songy.

So today, I have been hard put to think about things that have made our home happy and singing for Make Your Home Sing Monday.

We are feeling better and that is a praise. Our oldest son never got the stomach bug and he was able to go to camp. At least so far we haven´t gotten a call saying he is in the nurses. He should have a great week.

I, for one, want to thank the Lord for a forgiving husband. Forgiveness is something that a home can not sing without. There are times when the home is just not as sing songy as it should be. I am using these microbs as an excuse, mind you, but it doesn´t have to be that way for long. We can kiss and make up. This is the best part of a marriage and home that is Christ centered.

So, after all is said and done. Instead of hanging our heads and beating them, we can sing a song of praise. We are so undeserving but there is ONE Who loves us even when we fail. The song that I am singing is :

I would love to tell you what I think of Jesus, Since I found in Him a
friend so strong and true. I would tell you how He changed my life completely; He did something no other friend could do.

Chorus: No one ever cared for me like Jesus; There's no other friend so kind as He. No one else could take the sin and darkness from me; O how much He cared for me.

All my life was full of sin when Jesus found me;All my heart was full of misery and woe, Jesus placed His strong arms about me And He led me in the way I ought to go.

Chorus: No one ever cared for me like Jesus; There's no other friend so kind as He. No one else could take the sin and darkness from me; O how much He cared for me.

Ev'ry day He comes to me with new assurance;More and more I understand His word of love. But I'll never know just why He came to save me, Till someday I see His blessed face above.

Chorus: No one ever cared for me like Jesus;There's no
other friend so kind as He.No one else could take the sin and darkness from me; O how much He cared for me.

What´s making your home sing? We all fail at times but what is most important is that we get back up, ask for forgiveness and keep on keeping on. The Bible says

"For a just man (woman) falleth seven times, and riseth up again." Proverbs 24:16

Don´t let ´em get you! Keep getting up!

Making your home sing Mondays

  2. Oh my goodness..I thought you were going to write that you all had lice!! Ay yi yi!

    I'm glad you are all better now. I know how hard it is when the entire household is sick!!

    And, I am so thankful that we serve a God who is so forgiving to us, that we need to forgive each other too!!

    HUGS my friend!!

    I'll be praying for all of you to be feeling better soon.

  4. Glad you're all getting back on your feet. Being sick is no fun!

    Amen about forgiveness. I can't imagine what it would be to have the Lord forgive you once, and then after that to say "sorry!"

    Things just go smoother when we let the Lord in, don't they?! Thank you for joining us my dear!

  5. I wanted to let you know that I entered you into a contest to win a pedicure set because you've been such an encouragement to me. You can check it out at

    May the LORD's healing shower over you all.

    Thanks for sharing with us today also. Blessings.

  9. Amen my friend! We can wallow and feel sorry for ourselves. OR we can accept the Father's forgiveness and move on. I'm so thankful I have that forgiveness!

    Hope your house is starting to sing a little better ;)

  10. Amen...
