Praising the Lord


Yesterday evening was my last night as Peewee teacher at our church, and I had the privilege of leading them in singing in front of the church one last time.

The very very excited boy on the far right is my Beast! Despite his autism, there seems to be something about music and praising the Lord that brings out the performer in him. I think he is completely unaware that there is a whole congregation of people watching him; although he is certainly aware of the pastors sitting on the platform around him. He gets so excited that he flaps his arms sometimes (a "stimming" movement common to autistic children).

And don't forget my sweet little Drama Queen. She is in the center, trying her best to smile and sing and do everything she is supposed to do. :)

I love it! It makes my heart smile and my soul glad to see and hear my kids praising the Lord!
