Rehearsing

Michele, Ben D. and I have been rehearsing quite frequently lately for Michele's January 23rd show in Redvers. Michele, fiddle; Ben, guitar; myself, piano. We have gotten Jesse to play on a couple numbers, as well. I am really excited about this opportunity to play and sing. It is such a awesome thing to share music.

But wow, is the time ever flying by quick! I always have butterflies. (Do I know the songs well enough?!) I have just mastered a few of the pieces in the past few days and I feel a little shaky. Michele and I have been meaning to play together for the past three days. Saturday, for both of us, tiredness took priority. Sunday, I got home later from my excursion with Jesse. Monday (last night!), I came down with a sudden case of stomach upset which had me stretched out on my bed until past midnight. :-P (I think it may have had something to do with me slipping when I walked earlier in the day.) (At any rate, I'm feeling much better now. :-))

So I'm hoping that the rest of this week, we'll not only be able to rehearse, but rehearse the show in the way that we're going to play it. This morning, I intend to get supper figured out, lesson prep and organize my music into the binder Michele got for me. I am looking forward to the day when I will be able to do everything by ear.

If you are so led, please pray that God will open my mind.. give me wisdom. Also, that He will bring joy to those I am around. :-) All things are possible through Jesus Christ. Including the Jerry Holland Set!! ;-)
