Music from a Thankful Heart

I apologize that this blog has been quiet for a little while but there has been very good reason, here is the biggest/smallest one:



Joseph Mark was born 15 days early via emergency c-section amid a whirlwind of other life altering events. He and big brother Daniel have been occupying all of Mommy’s time.  In fact I am trying to type this blog one handed while alternating little boys who want to sit on my lap while listening to their Thanksgiving Music Playlist.

Daniel has a fascination with music and while I love Cedarmont Kids, Praise Baby & Veggie Tales for him I can only listen to the same handful of songs a certain number of times before I go stir-crazy. I think we passed that point about six months ago after the one billionth time listening to every one of his kiddy dvds! 🙂

He dances and signs along when his dad or I are listening to our “grown-up” music so I decided to continue on the theme of teaching him Thankfulness (he will now say “Thank you” with almost no prompting!) and create a Thanksgiving playlist that I can put on for him when he asks for music. These songs won’t drive the adults up a wall and I want to teach him the words to praise hymns while he is young. When I was a child we had to memorize hymns and the words to those songs have stuck with me my whole life and carried me through many trials.

I put a lot of work into compiling these and thought some of you might enjoy being able to grab one of the songs or the whole list. I hope you find it encouraging and if you have a favorite Thanksgiving song please leave it below in a comment.
