How It Went

Hi y'all!

Thank you so much for all your encouraging comments! I really feel your support, and it gives me strength.

The service went well. I was a little nervous at the beginning, but with the whole congregation singing along with the familiar carols, I didn't get any sense of being scrutinized or judged. I didn't sing perfectly, but I sang well enough, and more importantly I had a great time. There was a tangible sense of togetherness in the church, more so than during any regular service, and it was sweet. Afterwards, several people came up to give me hugs and encouragement, including my mum, who says she was bursting her buttons with pride.

I feel happy again just thinking of it. :-)

When a person in church is singing poorly, nobody is going to be the first person to openly critisize the poor singer. It feels wrong to critisize somebody in church.

The only one who doubted you'd be great was you, sweetie. :) Glad it went well. If we don't touch base again beforehand, have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. God bless you and yours. :)

Woo! I knew it would go well for you! Glad you have such good memories from it now too, and that your mom was there to support you and be proud. :) Have a wonderful Christmas and New Years!

I give you a lot of credit for singing all by yourself! I think I'd melt if that was me. But, that's why I'm not in any chorus to begin with. =)

I'm with Ron, lets see that video!

I'm sure you sounded wonderful, what a nice thing for your Mom to say, too.

Your blogs been shushing me, I left a comment on your last post but apparently it was 'unable to complete my request', hope I get on the board this time.
