as you know we had our lhkidz choir musical this past weekend. i’m still celebrating how great it went… but i wanted to highlight one of my favorite moments.


there is a christmas song that i dearly love, The Camel Song by Randall Goodgame. I love this song for multiple reasons. it’s just good music, first of all. secondly, it’s funny. and most of all it’s this one line: it says “don’t be the straw that breaks the camel’s back, be the straw that feeds the camel”.

i love that. it’s so simple, but it’s never been said like that before, that i’ve heard. but seriously… i wanna do that. NOT be the straw that breaks the camel’s back… but i DO wanna be the straw that feeds the camel…

i wanna be a blessing. not a pain. gonna look for ways to do that.

thankful for randall goodgame and this wonderful christmas song.

ps: notice the coconut percussion ala monty python and the holy grail. it was ah-mazing!!!!!!
