Morning AB, All.
Love your graphic AB. As always, thank you AB for doing this thread. Won’t be back except much later today as it is my church’s ten year anniversary and I am hip deep in the festivities.
Not that I mind but I’m nervous, and a bit excited.
First, I was on the 10 year planning committee. I did a lot of work on it too, majorly serving as secretary, taking the little puter to meetings, typing the meeting minutes, later proofing and sending out. Last eight months been involved in this.
Second, come to find out that since I am on the Finance Council (indeed, though I am no Kabar, I was an accountant for 30 years or so, have served on the church Finance council off and on over the past ten years, so church hires new business manager they call me back, wise move. I know my stuff)....Finance Council members will be serving as “greeters” in the Parish Life Center...which includes me.
Pastor spending $5,000 just on whores de ovaries, TV screens around PLC showing history of church, big plans....and...THE BISHOP IS COMING!
So here I am serving as a Guide, also working on committee and expected to help out in that regard.
Than choir director announces since Bishop is coming big day for choir. At that point we have practice two nights a week, singing BIG BIG songs...we even have a trumpet playing with us to “Joyful, Joyful We Adore Thee”...also snare drum, xylophone. Also band is playing.
Choir director then , heh, assigns a solo to the altos in the choir. Welp, there’s really only two altos that sing with any kind of loudness, one of which is me.
The other is a beautiful singer who reaches all kind of high notes that I can only aspire to.
But while I might not be a soloist singer, I am a very good choir singer. My range might only be three notes but I sing those three notes very well.
So this song the choir director has the altos leading off with....once again this is de facto TWO people...is right in my three note range. The other alto singer with the beautiful voice, well you don’t think I was daunted now did you?
Last Thursday we practice. Soprano comes up....made my day...”You altos sound so pretty in that solo part. Your voices just meld so well, you sound like angels.”
And so we do. Cause I recorded one of our practice sessions, even played for my husband and daughter, and you know what....WE SOUND GREAT!
The lady with the beautiful voice....that voice is held up and supported by my own tenor type of tone and hey, I thought it sounded good. Made my day when another choir member put it so well.
But I’m a bit nervous, folks, could hardly sleep. Had my hair colored and highlighted, must wear black skirt and white blouse, bought new.
Wish me luck and maybe later today I’ll be back.
WOw - hope your big day goes smoothly. I’m sure you will look beautiful and sound like angels! Blessings to you and your congregation today!!
Uh, ain't that "horses' doovers"??? ;o)
