The singing was absolutely beautiful and brought tears to my eyes. How magnificent Heaven's Choir will be someday as we all gather to sing!!! Thank you for sharing your lovely Thanksgiving blessing.

Thank you so much for sharing the video of you all singing! It was a blessing to watch. Every time I hear the Doxology, I think of your family because on the CD that your family made when Noah was a baby, you sang that song. :)
I hope Sarah has a happy and blessed birthday today!
We are praying for your family during this busy time.
Love, Emily A.
