2 Days Left

Leann Harris here. In my other life, the one I went to college for, I taught deaf kids. When Christmas comes and I'm sitting at my computer writing and a Christmas carol come on, I stop and sign it. Signing for me is a way of worship. It it the entire body involved with the singing and praising.

This year, I signed "Let There Be Light" by Point of Grace for the Christmas luncheon I attended. This video I did afterward.

Wow, yesterday I glanced at the post and meant to come back. Today, I did the same. Then, I clicked on the video. For a moment, I wondered what was going on. See, I had the sound on mute. For a while, I was seeing the song as the deaf people do, only I sure didn't understand. Then, I turned on the sound and started again. Wow, how beautiful. We have a deaf ministry at my church, I wonder if I can show them. Great post.

I'm going to have my daughter watch this too. She just finished taking sign language in college. Simply beautiful, Leann! Thanks for sharing!

Thanks, ladies. I loved doing that song, but could you hear the cell phone at the end of the video. I thought when I looked at it, it was the phone in my purse. It was off. Then I remembered my husband called at the end of the song.

And I should've worn a black shirt.

Leann, that was wonderful. I worked at our local deaf school for about ten years. My grandmother was deaf. Deafness runs in our family. Both my son and I wear hearing aids too!! I love ASL as a way of worshiping. Great job!

Leann, that was beautiful. I loved how you moved your hands and body. I see why you say it is a form of worship. Thank you for sharing.
