January Events

And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, 
proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. 
In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, 
was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, 
and yielded her fruit every month: 
and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. 
And there shall be no more curse: 
but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; 
and his servants shall serve him.

Revelation 22 

Blessed are You, LORD our God, king of the universe, 
who chose us from all the peoples and gave to us His Torah. 
Blessed are You, LORD, giver of the Torah.

And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years.
Genesis 19:14

Be alert and always keep on praying ... Eph. 6

Exodus 15

1 Then sang Moses and the children of Israel this song unto the Lord, and spake, saying, I will sing unto the Lord, for he hath triumphed gloriously: the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea.
2 The Lord is my strength and song, and he is become my salvation: he is my God, and I will prepare him an habitation; my father's God, and I will exalt him.

20 And Miriam the prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took a timbrel in her hand; and all the women went out after her with timbrels and with dances.
21 And Miriam answered them, Sing ye to the Lord, for he hath triumphed gloriously; the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea.

The Song Of Moses and Miriam
A beautiful, pictorial instrumental.  
Moses and Miriam Sing Praise to the Lord in Exodus. 
The very first song sung to the Lord in the Bible. 
It is an account of the Exodus out of Egypt by Moses and His Followers.

Miriam's Song by Debbie Friedman
A lively version of this song of praise.
