An Answered Prayer


I was talking with my six-year-old grandson yesterday and we were talking about God and how He gives us good things. My grandson had his Christmas program at his school yesterday and a party afterwards where he got many gifts. (He is the little shepherd on the left at the end.)

Well, as we were talking, he asked, "How does God give us good things?" I said, "We pray to Him and ask Him." Then my grandson said, "Well, I prayed to Him and He didn't answer my prayer." I asked him, "What did you pray for?" He said he lost a toy and prayed that he would find it again. He said that God never let him find it. I asked him what the toy was. He said it was a slinky and he really wanted to find it.

I then said, "Well, what did you get for one of your gifts today?" His eyes got big with a surprised look on his face, and he said, "I got a slinky!" I said, "Well, do you think your prayer was answered?" He said, "Yes, and it was even my favorite color blue!" I told him that sometimes God doesn't answer our prayers the way we think they should be answered. Sometimes the answer comes in another way. That was a great lesson for my grandson and I don't think he will ever forget it. It showed me, too, that God can use lessons like this for all of us. It did my heart good to see my grandson respond the way he did. And just maybe we all can learn something from this, too.

O Holy Night!

Everyone loves this song, including me. And I finally have recorded it! I just thought I'd put on some Christmas songs since I have been singing them quite a bit lately. I put another song (Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas) below this recording, if you want to listen to that one, too. Hope you like them.

Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas!

Another Video - "Grownup Christmas List

We had our recital today for Music Instruction Studio. It went really well and we had a packed house. One of my students sang this song (which I have sung before) and I love it so much I just had to record it when I got home. She did a beautiful job singing it and it was her first time singing in front of a big crowd. I was so proud of her. I wish I had a video of her singing it--I would put it on here instead of me.

The words to this song are so meaningful and thought-provoking. Hope you enjoy it.
