Together We Sing

Time for Five-Minute Friday. Every Friday Lisa-Jo tickles our imagination with one word. We then write, unedited, for five minutes about that word.

Today's is: Together:

go - My husband and I belong to our church choir. It has been such a blessing to both of us. I should insert here that he is an amazing singer; I can carry a tune. We meet every Wednesday evening to practice. It is a precious time that seems much more like worship than working on music.

 We begin to sing and the room is filled with His presence. It is a miraculous thing. When we learn new music, our music minister has us practice parts. The sopranos sing their part, the altos, the tenors and the basses. They all sound good - those parts - but it isn't until we put them all together that the music becomes alive. There is such beauty and power in the blending of the different parts all working together to form a beautiful whole.

 I think that is what we, as the body of Christ, are intended to be - a beautiful combination of parts that come together to form one glorious, edifying whole. If just one is missing, it isn't quite the same. Something is lost. We need to "sing" together so that we can be all that Jesus intended us to be. When we all do our part, however insignificant we may feel it is, it comes together in one glorious whole.


To be a part of Five-Minute Friday just head on over to Lisa-Jo's. You will love her.

Blessings, Linda
