Despite recent renovations to our almost 90 year old church building, there was no heat for worship service yesterday morning. The temperature outside was 23 degrees Fahrenheit.
It wasn’t that big of a deal; everyone simply kept their coats on. Except for one brother from Northern Germany who was comfortable in his short sleeves. 😀🏝
Our pianist played an introduction to the first hymn, like always, but when the organist came in something sounded off. Apparently, our non electronic pipe organ doesn’t like the cold, because it sounded like a street corner accordion! Hearing a properly tuned piano and an out-of-tune organ playing together grates on the nerves.🙃
Thankfully, sometime during the third hymn, the old organ began to warm up and sound right. It and the piano agreed to play in the same key.🙂
Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for men.Psalm 107:31
I want to give thanks to the Lord. It’s a good idea. Agreed. But there’s a problem: my “thanker” is a little cold. I’m saying the right words but something sounds off.
Yet, the more I “Count my blessings,” as the old hymn says, I warm up to what God has done. Next thing you know I’m playing in perfect tune with heaven’s harmony!
Kind reader, as a wise mentor of mine says, “We learn by doing.” So let’s keep counting our blessings.
Thank you for reading. 🙏❤️ prayers and love.
