Angels We Have Heard on High

Yesterday I was pouting that we were just getting rain instead of snow, but I guess I should have checked the forecast. It will definitely be a white Christmas. Sadly, our church even had to cancel the Christmas Eve service tonight. So I have a moment to post the third video from the Christmas program.

If you've been reading this blog for a while, I hope you've gained an appreciation for how special a kid Ryne is. He may have his challenges and quirks, but he brings joy to so many people. And it was such a joy to watch him perform. I laughed, cried, and sat in wonder. And prayed a quick "thank you" to God.

Here are a few things to notice as you watch the video:

  • His enthusiasm as he leaps into place at the piano.
  • Serious preparation -- he cracks his knuckles before he starts playing!
  • Some annoying woman whispering instructions at him. Me? Why would you think that?
  • Unbelievable -- For the first half of the piece, he plays perfectly while making faces at his little sister sitting in the front row!
  • A job well done. I won't spoil it, but clearly he enjoyed himself.


  1. That was FABULOUS! Great job, Ryne!! Merry Chirstmas, too!!

  2. Go, Ryne! Wonderful job!

    Merry Christmas. :D

  3. Well they're all three just cute, cute, cute! A great job from everyone!
