Happy New Year, everyone! Hope you had a great time over the holidays and wish you a year ahead filled with blessings and the glory of God in your life.

Last year (in March, maybe?) we made a slight change to our family devotion time and I thought you might enjoy skimming the following list. Instead of singing a different hymn each day, we decided to sing the same one for an entire week. It gave us a chance to learn new melodies and to appreciate the words more deeply. David and I took turns choosing every Saturday, so it was, for the most part, random. We did try, however, for a variety of Spanish and English, known and unknown (at least to the children), old and new. I have included the translation of the hymn, if applicable.

If you have trouble finding the lyrics or melodies to any you are interested in sharing with your family, let me know and I’ll be happy to help any way I can!

Last year I didn’t do very well with regular posts, so I’m hoping to get back to posting once a week or every 15 days at least. I am also slooowly going through my old posts and translating them to Spanish. There is a new tab entitled Penélope Alves en Español where you can find those.

Thanks again for being here and please–if there is anything you’d like to hear about, let me know! We are here to serve you and the best way we can do that is knowing better what you need.

May God be your all in 2023. -P
