Christmas Practice #1

Tonight went really well! We have such a big group this year; it's incredible that each year the choir grows. We went over the parts for "The Messiah Came" and "Don't Save It All (For Christmas Day)", which we did last year, so it was pretty easy to pick up again. Once we went over it a time or two, I could hear the parts. The most time consuming things to work on are the "oohs" and "aahs", because they're so tedious. You have to get them just right or they sound weird. 

It's so fun having everyone together. It's the one time of year when anyone and everyone from the church comes together to make this happen, and it couldn't have gone better. The laughs and smiles on everyone's faces as we joke around and come up with wacky things, just really makes my heart feel warm and fuzzy; it's family. I feel really special to be apart of bringing others to Christ. That's what it's all about; the rest of it is all just minor details that can be worked out. It's important that we not lose sight of that. :) God has a big plan for each of us in this, no matter how small or insignificant we may feel at times, He's got it all planned out...I'm trusting Him. 

Keep following the star,

P.S. Next week, I know we're working on "A Baby Changes Everything" and "Oh Holy Night"; both are tough songs, so it'll practice will probably be a little longer ;) I'm ready! Haha.
