Five Minute Friday: Rhythm

Five Minute Friday with Lisa-Jo Baker and hundreds of others. We write for five minutes. All on the same prompt. No extreme editing. No worrying about perfect grammar, font, or punctuation. Unscripted. Unedited. Real.

This week’s prompt: Rhythm

Today as Hit Me Down Sonny by The Ting Tings blared on the speakers I watched as my squishers danced and jumped around with me. I have no idea where they got their moves from... {she says bashfully} Some of my children can dance, some... well let's just say, I encourage them to have fun! We all hear a beat and start moving. When that favorite songs starts playing nothing can make you sit still. When I hear classical music I want to grab my ballet slippers. When I hear The Ting Tings I just start jumping. Music is universal. It is timeless. It brings us all together. And when I hear any note I remember it is all here to praise Jesus! Our dancing, singing and music playing is all from him.

Praise the Lord, for the Lord is good; celebrate his lovely name with music.
Psalm 135:3 NLT

Andi and Brad have been married since 2002. They have five squishers who keep them on their toes. She is a second generation home educator. In her spare time Andi creates and sells handmade goodies in her shop, Andi Gould Designs.

  3. Agreed... Music is universal. It's amazing how kiddos have the instinct to move to the rhythm too. And how some got it and others, as you said, are encouraged to have fun! Have a great weekend!
