Our pastor really wanted our church choir to go to the local nursing home to go Christmas caroling.
Now, I don't have anything against this - but I just couldn't find a time that I thought would work.
She asked again at church, so I talked to the choir. We decided to meet at the nursing home at 6:30 tonight to do some caroling.
I was kind of dreading it. It's kind of cold here - and I really didn't want to get back out. My leg is finally feeling a little better (nothing is broken - which is good) and I didn't want to be out and about. I really just wanted to stay home, bake cookies and watch football.
But, I went - after all - I am the choir director.
We decided to just sing in the common room. We did some songs with guitar and some with piano. We were even able to take some requests from the residents.
What a great night we had. I'm so glad I went - and I'm so glad my little choir was willing to go with me.
So, God, I hear you - it's not all about me.
