Who Sang The First Song – Book Review

Have you ever given thought to ‘Who Sang The First Song?’  Did you know there’s a constant sound in the universe?  That sound originates from the sun, neutron stars, black holes, and more.

From the beginning of time, there have been sounds all around.  God has not only put the beauty of sound everywhere but He has given each of His creation their own song.  Each song is individualized and determined for each one of us to use in furthering His Kingdom on Earth.

Now I recognize this is a bit ‘heavy’ for children. However, Ellie Holcomb, in her book Who Sang The First Song?, covers the concept in words and questions that children can understand.

After all, didn’t God tell us to make a joyful noise?  And what is more joyful than a song straight from the heart.

So, if you need a really great children’s gift, or want to enrich your home library, I highly recommend this delightful book.

Blessings to you and yours!

5 Sentence Friday Psalm 139:14

Here it is. 5-Sentence Friday. Today’s verse is one that is often repeated. The One and Only thought of me, planned me, loved me from the beginning of time.  In the ‘fullness of time’ (phrase from Eph. 4:4) I came to be. Just thinking about this concept is overwhelming but it is what it is.

Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! It is amazing to think about. Your workmanship is marvelous—and how well I know it.  Psalm 139:14  TLB

I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderfully made; I know that full well.  Psalm 139:14 NIV

  1. I had nothing to do with the complexity of who I would be.
  2. I am His wonderfully made creation.
  3. God deserves (and expects) my thanks for even thinking of me.
  4. Every heartbeat, every breath, every step is/was orchestrated by You.
  5. My skills, talents, and habits are part of Your purpose for me.

Blessings to you and yours!

Book Review – Purposeful Design

 

Purposeful Design

Disclaimer: I was provided a copy of this book for my review by Jay Schabacker through Bookcrash.  No other compensation was received.  If you click on the book it will take you to Amazon’s purchase page.  Once again, I receive no compensation for your decision to purchase.

This insightful look into the reasons for ordering creation would be useful for all ages.  The author, Jay Schabacker, has carefully researched many of the events during the first seven days to provide the reader with an accurate representation of what God did and why He did it.  Starting with a cute tickler about the Man in the Moon and moving through the Creation events he provides the reader with many stories within the Story.

Using the Word of the Creator God and scientific fact and theory the Creation comes to life on the pages of this book.  Facts, beautiful pictures, quotes, Bible verses, and flowing words fill this book with a solid basis for a Creative, Purposeful, Life-giving, beginning to Earth, the Solar System, and all of the Cosmos.

Through the eyes and words of this author each creative day had to preceed the next so the finished product, man, could move forward.  Sequentially using the movement of the planets, the  rain cycle, how the seasons are beneficial , tidal movement and timing, instincts of birds and fish, domesticating animals, and the uniqueness of each human, puts the story into perspective and makes for some very interesting reading.

I highly recommend this book!  Either for your coffee table (because it is beautifully made) or as a gift for any age,  you can’t go wrong.
