Making melody

It's hard to believe, but sometimes this 2 year old boy is naughty.

In an effort to stop that tendency, his mother has introduced him to the "time-out" - you know, sitting in a chair, all freedom ended for 5 minutes....

In his first ever time-out, Ikey bellowed his displeasure for all the neighborhood to hear. His mom and sisters continued their activities in the yard, ignoring his noise. When he realized no one was paying any attention, he stopped yelling and sat contemplating his plight.

Moments later, the nearby sisters and mommy stood in shocked silence as they heard the little "time-outer" sweetly singing Amazing Grace.

"Mom!" the oldest sister said, "He's just like Paul and Silas!" (See the full story in Acts 16:16-34)

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. Colossians 3:16
