52 Blessings

Choir
.
Jaclyn and I are both members of the church choir; it is something enjoyable we can do together, which is part of the blessing. Today Jaclyn took a turn at the piano giving our regular choir accompanist a chance to sing bass. The choir director was very impressed that Jaclyn could just jump in like that. I like it best when we sit together and sing, but I am also proud of her piano talent. Several of my other young women are in choir which is another fun reason to go, but most of all I love choir because I feel the Spirit when I sing the hymns.
I feel the heat.

I love this post Barb and how it ties in to your word for the year, too. What a fun blessing.

If I could carry a tune, I may be able to join you. What a wonderful talent to share with your daughter!

Growing up my sisters and I always went to choir with our dad. What good memories! Such a fun blessing to share with your daughter!

Denise said...

Amen to that! I'm a big fan of choir. Whenever we move to a new ward, the first thing I do is join the choir. Love it!

I always think about joining the choir around Christmas and Easter... oh, the music! Such a fair weather friend am I..

So glad you're feeling the HEAT.

Jaclyn truly is impressive to be able to jump in.

My most feared calling is without a doubt to play piano in primary. You have to be able to play anything at the drop of a hat. Scarey beyond scarey.

I have to say that I have a terrible voice. (My first ward choir at BYU asked me not to come back...seriously.) But I just can't help belting it out when we sing hymns in church. I just feel the heat burning and I just have to let it out...I always give it my all and without fail the six-year-old in the pew ahead of us turns around to see who is making that noise!

It's great that you two can share music like this.

I wish at some point in my life I would be able to actually sing in a choir - but alas, I'm always playing the piano. Which, I guess I don't mind too much - since it's usually a fun experience!
