The kids at school catch me singing all the time. Sometimes out loud. Sometimes silly songs with them. Songs can be so joyous. Those are the ones I like. That is the image I want to present–joyful, a little silly maybe.
What song are you singing? What words do you say and what image are you presenting to others? I am noticing in our culture we don’t always stop and think about how others are going to receive our song. It may be our opinion. It may be our first amendment. But I am not sure it is the song God would want us singing.
So I will go on being goofy and joyful. I will continue to listen to Christian music in my classroom during prep times. That is my song.
