I have been asked to LEAD THE MUSIC for a funeral on Friday!

Not that it's about me, but it is a little panic making. I have no problem leading the primary children, (I enjoy that), having adults, (and I assume) lots of them, watching me is NOT in my comfort zone!

It is Oral Petty's funeral. She died Monday night. I am sure she is happily dancing around with Charles now.

April Steimle called and asked me to be her partner and lead the music. I tried to get out of it, gave a different suggestion, but April was having none of it!

I said OK!

The two songs I am leading:
  • Have I done any good in the world today.....6/8 time!
  • Put your shoulder to the wheel.....4/4 time (easy)

Wish me luck!

I completely understand how you feel! Once I was asked to lead 6/8 at a tri-stake fireside!! I am not a musical person and I discovered that 6/8 is the hardest time. It was really nerv-racking being in front of everyone.

Good luck! I'm sure you will do well. What book are you reading now?

Thanks, Emily!

I am reading a book called The Cinderella Pact. I find it funny and a great escape.

I just finished The Summer Guest. I really liked that one. Have you looked at my book blog??

To my Beloved Julie,
I feel THAT WAY every Sunday. (Wearing a nice outfit helps me not to be so nervous.) But when I stop leading my hands shake. To help me alleviate the stress I try to get into the message of the words and music. I know, Julie, that you did very well because April told me how well you did and that she loved working with you.
