Emergency Alert System for the Whimsical

Yesterday I took Asherel and her friend Josh kayaking on the Catawba for the whole afternoon, and most exciting, I got to try out my new Kazoobie Official OSHA regulation boat kazoo. I had not actually known how badly I needed a boat kazoo until our recent kazoo factory tour while vacationing in Hilton Head. My one fear on my kayak is that drunk motor boaters, or inattentive motor boaters will plow into me on my defenseless kayak. But now, with my Kazoobie Official OSHA regulation boat kazoo, I can make enough noise to alert them.

Asherel did not seem thrilled by my practicing my emergency kazoo alert system. Even Josh, who is among the quirkier teens I know, did not seem thrilled. Not only did I practice Emergency Alerts, but I discovered that the Kazoobie Official OSHA regulation boat kazoo is an excellent instrument to play God Bless America on. You would not believe how far sound travels down an empty river!

The same voice that would call for help when destruction threatened was now lifted in praise and delight for my nation and my Lord. That is fitting, I decided. He answers our calls of distress, and then exalts in our songs of praise. And we should never be ashamed or timid to do either.

The Lord is near to all who call upon Him, To all who call upon Him in truth. He will fulfill the desire of those who fear Him; He will also hear their cry and will save them. (Psalms 145:18, 19 NASB)

Teach and admonish one another in all wisdom; and with gratitude in your hearts sing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs to God. Colossians 3:16
