Alleluia

Sunday, November 15, 2009

I have a lot to post about but some will have to wait until another time. Thank you for all of the birthday wishes, cards, calls, e-mails and surprise packages:) I had a lovely birthday. I truly am blessed with loving friends and family and I do not take that for granted.

Tonight I want to blog about some cute things Kate has said/done.

Today before Mass, the choir was practicing a new Alleluia. Kate was a little upset. She LOVES the Alleluia and sings it nice and loud. She also does not like change and could not understand why they would change the Alleluia. She asked if the old one was broken. It was the cutest conversation and I want to remember it. So, I asked her to sing it for me tonight....




The priest was not angry but he was loud and ever since Kate got tubes in her ears...she thinks everyone is shouting;) His message, however, was very important today. He did say that we need to be "awake" in our lives. At which point Kate whispered to me that we should not close our eyes and sleep in Church. Hey--at least she was listening.

He spoke about the end of our time on earth. He asked us to think about what we would be doing to prepare if we knew that we would be meeting God in a few days. I have thought long and hard about this and decided that I would forgive those in my life who have hurt me and ask for forgiveness from any that I have hurt. I would also work harder to "Love one another as I have loved you." It was a good lesson because there is no time like the present to start living exactly as God wants us to live. What would you do to prepare?

I have a friend who is literally fighting for her life in the hospital right now. She has three young children and she is such a fighter. Your prayers for my friend, Tracye would be appreciated. Thank you.

  5. Thanks for sharing. Not only is this video amazingly cute, but it records part of Kate's faith journey. Parts of the liturgy that are sung quickly become parts of our very selves. Kate will learn the new Alleluia before long. My prayer for her is that many, many different Alleluias will be in her heart. How blessed she is to be part of your family!

  20. That is priceless! What a great question...what would I do to prepare? I would get in the word. I need to read daily in my bible, and do daily devotions with my girls. I am going to make that a priority. :)

  21. Kim, I just adored that video! That note Kate hits as she modulates up made me smile. Adorable!

    I guess I haven't heard yor voice before because I expected a Southern accent :).

    As always she is dressed so darned cute!

    I always remember you at this time of year too! I LOVE the ornament you sent and it made me laugh when we both chose angels!

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  22. Oh my goodness, Kate is THE sweetest little angel EVER! It appears as if you are preparing her for what God would expect us to be like. I am ashamed that I fall short every single day and on most days don't even give it a second thought. Thank you for your thought provoking post...as well as the honor to be able to pray for Tracye.
    On a side note: Seriously, how precious is your baby girl???

  27. This is the cutest thing EVER!!
    I loved singing that in church as a child...probably Kate's age.
    I always wanted to sing like the older ladies in Church, but I sounded more like I was Yodeling!
