Five Minute Friday: Adore

Adore.  Reading Kate Motaung’s Five Minute Friday post on “Adore,” the last line really hit home with me, “‘Come, let us adore Him.'”  I love hearing this song sung in church with perhaps less than ideal pitch (on my part), but much passion behind the words.  This is a definite goosebump-worthy song.

Recently, my girls, hub, and I decided to write down all of the Christmas songs we could think of from memory alone.  We were gathering these titles in order to play a game, found in Lynn Gordon’s 52 Christmas Activities, where one player draws a scene depicting the title of a Christmas carol.

We had the best time trying to come up with song titles.  All of a sudden someone would belt out the first line of a song, “Deck the Halls with Boughs of Holly!” and then not much else.  We had the tune down, but more often than not, a loss for complete lyrics.

When one of our girls was unfamiliar with a song title, we would search Pandora on our television so that they could hear the song in its entirety.  So, our evening was spent in near dark with only their Christmas scenes lighting the room and the sound of Christmas filling the air.  Adore.

Can you guess the title of the song depicted in the picture at the top?

  1. I love this post!!! ‘Silent night’? The night wasn’t silent around here tonight… we just sang carols on the village green – what a fab time. But in the dark fumbling with a carol sheet, I was struggling to remember the words too – even to ‘Away in a manger!’ Definitely in need of some revision, methinks… (and a torch)

  2. What a fun, creative game to play with kiddos! I grew up in a big family, and we often played games similar to this with lines from movies. We would have loved this one.
    I’m glad I was your neighbor over at Kate’s blog! Have a wonderful Christmas, and a happy new year. 🙂
