A belated Merry Christmas to all . . . and early Happy New Years greetings.
December was indeed an exciting month to both experience and remember.
During December of each year, I usually sing a Christmas Carol show for 4-5 area retirement / nursing homes and community groups. This year I received 8 invitations to sing. So I recruited the help of our 1st Church String Band members. As a result, this was the first December in the past 10 years that I did not have sing a single Christmas show by myself.
That's good, especially since we used a PA system for half the performances, and help is always needed to carry equipment in and out!
In all, we sang to 510 people. This number included older adult residents, family members, location staff, and volunteers.
We know we were well received, because we were invited to return whenever we could schedule to do so.
Hopefully, a prayer of mine was answered in the process. Our little String Band is a decent instrumental group. Vocally, we are very good. My prayer has been that we could begin singing more regularly in public, especially to raise money for some of our mission projects at the church.
It seems we may be headed that direction once again.
Everybody please keep singing!
God's grace still amazes me . . . ><>
