Friday

So it is Valentine's Day. If you're a single woman, stick your fingers in your ears, your hands over your eyes, and sing la la la la ...  Or maybe this.

Someone in my Facebook news feed a while back said they wished someone would put the Apostle's Creed to music, only I can't remember who. But I am actually up in Queensland at the moment for a family reunion for my Pa's 90th Birthday, and my Aunt happened to show me this.

I'm married, as you know, and I want to stick my fingers in my ears, my hands over my eyes, and sing la la la la. Excellent idea.

True story...back in 1998 it was a valentine's day over the weekend year. When my now husband decided it was time to propose he planned it carefully and got down on metaphoric bended knee the weekend before - so that it wasn't on valentine's day.

And now I am off to listen to your song. :-)

Meredith, I like your story! One certainly doesn't want to get engaged on Valentine's Day. Though this year I did actually purchase and give away some super cheesy teddy-holding-a-heart chocolates, because my little Valentines are 6, 5 and 2 years old.

The real question here though is where do I find a room full of rather nice looking dudes like this who sit around playing and singing the Apostle's Creed ... ;)

And I should add that I was all in favour of the non-valentine's engagement.

Third Day are really good, aren't they.

Hope you are having a fun weekend with the fam.

Ahh, where do I get me that hammered string instrument that sounds like a mando. Never seen that before.

Ali said...

Me either Jess! No idea where one might get one ...

Ali said...

In case you don't see the later post Jess, I now know that this is a hammered dulcimer. Rich Mullins plays it in the original version too (which has more drums!).

Jessica said...

That's a really old type of instrument. I didn't know they sounded cool.

Ah sorry, I had to moderate that comment Jess, because it's older, and blogger doesn't tell me there even is a comment. But yes, I didn't know people were still playing Dulcimers. Apparently Rich Mullins was good at several types of them (he plays a lap dulcimer in another song).
