Actually……..the first week of 2019 is over. Can you believe it! I have now spent over 50 years in the Music Ministry. In the many many facets of it all. I will never forget.
Today was my first day as the Church Pianist at SGCC. How good it felt. No longer do I have to watch for the regular player to arrive, nor do I have to get off the bench for someone else. It has been a long time coming. But you know what!!! I was not ready until now. My mind sometimes told me I was, but I really wasn’t. It has been a very long, long time with so many happenings in my life. More than I can remember. In fact, I was talking with my G’daughter sometime back, about a patio chair and she made the comment I had already given them a set. I remember nothing about it.
There will be four people responsible for getting me to church each month. And so far, the drivers do not drive me crazy with the way they drive. THAT’S DIFFERENT!! They all have cars that I am used to – at our age, you don’t go for new fangled ideas. More solid, full and easy on the back. They have four places where they go after church on Sundays. All are little in the wall, out of the way places and the food is soooooooo good.
I have been ill the past three days. I was kinda just up and out of bed to go this morning and waiting eagerly to get back home to the item called the “bed”. A bug got a hold of me and has done a real number on me. The church all together remained and all helped to take down the Christmas decorations. I did not stay – got home as soon as I could.
I am in the waiting mode right now for my digital piano to arrive, within the month for sure. it is a Williams Legato III Keyboard. Has the 88 keys. I was able to hear it online and the piano sound is very much there.
For the New Year I leave one thought with you that I ran across a few weeks back and already in my life it has weaved almost every single day, if not in my life, in the life of those around me. It attaches to every single thing we do, every single thing we decide on. Here it is.
You are free to make any choice you wish, but you are not free to choose the consequences of your choice.
I am making my choices in life in 2019 with a bit more thought to the choice. I know the outcome can be disastrous and in this old woman’s life, choice-making will be done more carefully. How about you!!
See you next time.
Doesn’t he look comfy? This is how he sleeps. Not a worry in the world. Ho hum!!
