JUST SOME LISTS

I could write about my day yesterday, but it’s too painful to do so – let me just say, I started out doing something smart (and that needed to be done) and that grew into a I-gotta-figure-this-out-and-do-something mess.

So, instead of boring you with my bad day, I’ll share some lists …

LIST 1 – Home-schooled kids

1. Ansel Adams

2. Louisa May Alcott

3. Alexander Graham Bell

4. Pearl S. Buck

5. Agatha Christie.

6. Thomas Edison

7. Mozart

8. Laura Ingalls Wilder

9. Woodrow Wilson

How to sing a hymn, according to John Wesley.

Learn the tune.

Sing them as they are printed.

Sing all. “If it is a cross to you, take it up and you will find a blessing.”

Sing lustily and with a good courage.

Sing modestly. Do not bawl.

Sing in time. Do not run before or stay behind.

Above all, sing spiritually. Have an eye to God in every word you sing. Aim at pleasing Him more than yourself, or any other creature. In order to do this, attend strictly to the sense of what you sing, and see that your heart is not carried away with the sound, but offered to God continually.
