   This morning, Dec. 20, 2015, Praising Hands gave our Christmas offering.  We signed Silent Night the very beginning of the service.  After the first "Silent night", right on "Holy" the choir joined in.  What a magical feeling.  Yes, we made a few little errors here and there.  But all in all, it felt good.

    Merry Christmas Everyone.  May God bless you and yours.

    There has been an absence in my blogging for which my only excuses is I have been overwhelmed as of late.  

    I talked with Pat about insights and thoughts she would like to share  with our readers.  She mentioned a few thoughts I will try to discuss here. 

     As with any group of singers, each member has their own voice.  We each express our own selves in our manor of expression and movements.  Pat, herself, moves with so much expression, where as Moe has so much expression on his face while he signs.

    Pat said she has been asked how our songs are chosen.  I asked her what her answer is when asked that question.  First, I as the director do not chose the songs.  I find songs that I think are with our capability and ones I like or other people have requested.  I then present them to Praising Hands as a group.  After considering them we all chose ones that make a connection with us at some level.  I think it is important that we all feel comfortable with the songs we are signing.   

Thank you for visiting.  May God bless.
