All Work and No Play

"I want to play the harp, Dad. like the one father David played."
"You've got better things to do, Son, lots of practical things to be made.

"You're a carpenter, not a musician. Such foolishness, banish the thought!
Chairs and tables and gates, Son, these are what things will be bought."

"If I make it and learn in my spare time, it will never cost you a cent.
I'll accompany myself in the Word, Dad. I do hope you will relent!"

Though music was something he thought was not needed
Joseph felt something higher than his opinion, so heeded.

"The lord thy god in the midst of thee is mighty; He will save,
He will rejoice over thee with joy; He will rest in His love,
He will joy over thee with singing."
Zeph. 3:17

I don't know if it happened this way or not.
(Sometimes I reach higher than what I was taught.)

I think it's logical and it's fair to assume;
That in Jesus' home music filled every room!

Loved this one Mack! I forwarded it to my pastor. I think he will appreciate your higher reach.
