That's what happens when your regular job is focused on the arrival of Easter!
To say I'm a little rusty when it comes to singing and playing guitar is putting it mildly. Both vocally and musically, I could hear the mistakes. Too many mistakes . . . I was pushing to hard.
Hope I didn't cringe too noticeably.
Finally, I had enough . . . And I turned off my iPad, and abandoned my set-list.
Then . . . I just sang and played what songs I know, songs I would enjoy singing anywhere. Story songs, funny songs, good neighbor songs. I started engaging the audience with my eyes and vocals, and kept the guitar playing simple.
I had a blast! I think the residents did as well.
If I sang more than 3-4 times a month, I know I would easily be able to fully and comfortably memorize 30+ songs. But reality being what it is, opportunities to sing have to fit in with a full-time Pastor's schedule. Things should get busier when summer arrives with VBS and other community events.
That it my hope.
God's grace still amazes me . . . ><>
