Lifting Praise

PRAISE the LORD! For it is good to sing praises to our God;
For it is pleasant, and praise is beautiful.

He counts the number of the stars;
He calls them all by name.

Great is our Lord, and mighty in power;
His understanding is infinite.

Sing to the LORD with thanksgiving;
Sing praises on the harp to our God,

The LORD takes pleasure in those who fear Him,
In those who hope in His mercy.

PRAISE the LORD!
Praise the LORD from the heavens;
Praise Him in the heights!

Let them praise the name of the LORD,
For He commanded and they were created.

Let them praise the name of the LORD,
For His name alone is exalted;

His glory is above the earth and heaven.

And He has exalted the horn of His people,
The praise of all His saints—
Of the children of Israel,
A people near to Him. Praise the LORD!
Selections from Psalm 147 &148

Sorry, correction, it's not you're "whole" family on the stage, but it's all of you who are still at home. ;)

Dear Wissmanns,

Have few questions want to ask:
My daughter had learn several years of piano with a teacher and had set a pretty good music theory foundation till now, and recently I am thinking about introduce her to learn another instrument like flute. However, for the fiancial concern, we may not able to hire another flute teacher to teach her, so, do you recommand us to do the "self-taught" way to learn instrument (like buying beginner instruction book and DVD teaching)? or, do you believe it's better for beginner to learn from a professional teacher for seting a better foundation and correct habbit?

If you think the self-teach way is a good way to learn the second music instrument, what would you recommand us to do or buy now? How about the flute itself, should we better buy it(and is it a cheaper way in the long run?)or do the rent first?

Thank you so much for your recommandation and time to answer. I pray that God will use my family to worship Him and bless others in this music way as yours.

love in Christ
