Want to see how we while away a quiet afternoon?

Mikey was fast asleep in his stroller in the passage, so for once his mother was free to play the piano without young Beethoven on her lap joining in.

Grace playing, Alice standing, Hebe crouching on the floor to stop the hymn book falling off the piano, me making masterly video:

If you want to sing along, these are the words:

Sinners Jesus will receive;
Sound this word of grace to all
Who the heavenly pathway leave,
All who linger, all who fall.

    Sing it o'er and o'er again;
    Christ receiveth sinful men;
    Make the message clear and plain:
    Christ receiveth sinful men.

Come, and He will give you rest;
Trust Him for His word is plain;
He will take the sinfulest;
Christ receiveth sinful men.

Now my heart condemns me not,
Pure before the law I stand;
He who cleansed me from all spot,
Satisfied its last demand.

Christ receiveth sinful men,
Even me with all my sin;
Purged from every spot and stain,
Glory I shall enter in.

If you like this hymn and want to learn it, you can find it here at a more sedate speed, words with music to sing along to  :0O   :0D
And then we sang another hymn.  This time Hebe, even more masterly than I am, made the film.  To get us all in shot she held the camera the other way.  She forgot to turn it off at the end, so it went sideways in the last bit.  We all thought this was hilarious and decided not to edit it out.  Now, unfortunately, when Grace loaded it to YouTube, it proved impossible to get it to load both the right way up and with the music in sync with the film.  She had to choose.  So she loaded it in sync - sideways.  Those of you with laptops, you can turn your puters sideays to watch it.  Those of you with desktop puters will have to turn your heads sideways! Or... I suppose you may decide to give it a miss...

It's only more Burdens Are Lifted At Calvary.  Anyway, here we are!  :0)

If you're wondering why Grace has a pair of underpants on the front of her top (!), well that's her "say pants to poverty" t-shirt...

If you send me a comment in reply to this with your address on (or as a private message on Facebook, I'll send you a coopy of my Hawk & Dove trilogy as I happen to have one lying around waiting for a home. If you reply on here with your address it comes to my email, so I can just take the info off without publishing it here - it wouldn;t get automatically published. x
