Easter Special Music
I have always loved to sing. I have a “pretty good” voice too. I like to think—in the event I lost my sanity and tried out for American Idol—that Simon would merely say “next” and not ridicule and/or belittle me.
The Lovely Wife (as I shall call her), thinks my voice is much better than that, but I think its a bit of a case of love-sickness or maybe rose colored glasses. At any rate, she’s been suggesting for quite some time that I do some ‘special music’ for church. So, a month ago, I volunteered to do it. I’m going to sing Third Day’s Thief for the offertory at the Easter service.
I do not share The Lovely Wife’s enthusiasm for my performances. But I also recognize, that (aside from Simon), I’m probably my worst critic. I just hope that I don’t embarrass myself. After that, the rest is gravy.
So, yesterday, I purchased a Karaoke version of Thief that I will practice along with, and perform with in less than three weeks time. I was dismayed to find that the karaoke version was not exactly what I was hoping for; they took some liberties with the original song, and I’m going to have to get used to singing it without Mac Powell coaxing me along.
Pray for me, as I shall need it.
