What’s Your Excuse?

Today, we hear a good bit of talk about bucket lists. So, what is your desire? Not sure if any kick a bucket before taking a last breath.

While I’m on the subject of buckets, try this one on for size.

Ever used this for an excuse? ‘I can’t carry a tune in a bucket!’

Chuckle, chuckle…

Supposedly, if the tune was put in a bucket, some could not ‘carry’ it.

Is that a groan I hear?

So what if you can’t hit the right key or harmonize? God hears your heart.

“… speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord,  giving thanks always for all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ (Ephesians 5:19-20 NKJV).”

Here is another comical quip. ‘I sing solo; so low, you can’t hear me.’

 Why not sing louder?

 “Oh, sing to the Lord a new song!
Sing to the Lord, all the earth.
 Sing to the Lord, bless His name;
Proclaim the good news of His salvation from day to day (Psalm 96:1-2 NKJV).”
