“Sing to the Lord a new song. . .” Psalm 98, V1, NIV
I pictured the angels sticking their fingers in their ears when they first heard the sound coming from our family gathering.
At least thirty relatives were crammed into my grandparents 8 x 10 living room ready to sing Christmas carols. Those who couldn’t find a seat or lap to sit on, pushed up against each other in the two doorways. Everyone wanted to be heard.
My uncle Joe passed around a stack of Christmas carol books. “Okay everyone, it doesn’t matter whether you can sing or not. Grab a book of Christmas carols and join in.”
In his bellowing off key voice, he led us in “Angels We Have Heard on High.” Everyone joined in--even those who couldn’t carry a tune.
As I listened, I realized that my family had a genetic defect—no one could sing. Any singing should have been done alone in their shower.
The angels must have known we needed a Christmas miracle and joined in for our next song. Our loud, off key family of carolers had become a family choir.
