Psalm 150:4 (Pt. 2)  Thought/Prayer:  A Children’s Choir.  Topics:  2 at end.

“Praise him with tambourine and dancing! Praise him with stringed instruments and flute!”  WEB (Read this scripture and more at http://prayerpivot.com)

When one hears an elementary-school choir, it does a heart good.  This was the case this week.  A grandson sang in the school’s choir, and it was sweet.  Truly (and beyond the in-vogue word “sweet”) sweet.  There is just something about the purity of young voices.  This group was made up of children of about ages 11 or 12, with growth patterns and changes of adolescence yet to come. 

They truly did sing sweetly – no straining of vocal chords; no shout-
singing; no accents of strain on challenging high notes.  We might say they were just on the right note. 

It seems God planned it this way.  Just think of how many boys’ choirs have been appreciated on Christmas Eve.  Their unsullied voices seem to carry through cathedral air with a special timbre, a special quality not found in other choirs.  Of course, as the boys grow up, they will own other types of voices: in a wide range! 

Part of the success of a children’s choir is to choose music that fits their fresh voices.  Certain note ranges must be considered.  Composers must keep this in mind when putting notes on the staff for a children’s piece.  It’s true:  One does not write deep bass notes for a 12-year old.

This choir was made enjoyable by the tones contributed by our grandson.  He seemed to be enjoying the songs, ranging from more classical to fun (a song about duct tape).  Grandparents (us) were proud as were parents and friends I’m sure.

We owe a lot to teachers of elementary music.  It is through them that a true love of singing may flower.  Bad experiences in music class in early years can leave a person bereft of enjoyment in worship and a defeated attitude toward vocal or instrumental skills throughout life.  This is a sad thing.

But, Lord, you support music and encourage worship through it.  Well, You invented it!  Help us to be thankful for teachers who patiently support the child through music, cultivating an attitude of expression through music, to be used in thousands of ways.  Put voices with the tambourine and dancing, a mixed blend. 

Maybe, Lord, if we Christians go about humming a tune or remembering the words of praise from a song, our joy will affect others perhaps leading to a chance to share with them about the source of our music and LIFE:  You.

Topics:  Prayerfully try humming a favorite tune to day in some appropriate setting.  Maybe someone struggling with a LIFE decision will be boosted up and will be better able to think more clearly about available options.
