Pearls and Dreams
This morning was the Cantada. I knew that it was going to be a powerful 'performance'. I had no idea it was going to be as incredible as it was. How awesome.
We never once went from start to finish in practices. So, we never were quite sure of how it would go. When we do musicals, we never do that. Our director is quite the perfectionist. So, we knew how much she was trusting in God.
I can't say it went off without a hitch ...the music cut off during one of the solo's ..and he just kept going, and the sound technitions couldn't get it back on. So, he just went on with his narration. Then, we sang the rest of the song, acapella ...and it was the hardest song in the musical ...and it sounded SO much better than it had in any practice. Is that God or what?
My husband has never really gotten along well with my sister and her husband. Yet, when they said that those who had needs, could come to the alter to pray, and for the Southpark family to surround those that come in prayer, my sister and her husband (who don't go to our church) came up to pray. My husband came up behind them, to pray for them! Samuel and I, standing next to each other, grabbed each other's hands. It was amazing to see this man reach out in ministry and to my sister?! And all because of prayer!
I wish that I could put onto this blog this mornings service ..this is one area that the internet looses ...special moments like this morning.
I do have to say one thing. As well as it went ... I am glad it's over ..and I can go back to being behind the scenes ... I don't think I will be agreeing to sing again. Those days are behind me.
