Recently, my church started having choir practice for anyone who wants to be involved. We meet on Wednesday's an hour before church and practice for 45 minutes or so, usually.
This is one of the highlights of my week.
I don't know exactly why, but i have always loved choir practice. I don't care if we ever sing in front of anyone or not. I love the practicing part. I want it to last longer than it ever does, and i want it to take place more often than it ever does.
Singing praises with other folks who want to sing praises is just grand fun. I can't help it.
We've been singing for about a month, i think. I think we started out with 6-10 people.
The music minister who's leading us, one night, called us The Coldspring Celebration Mass Choir.
This past Wednesday, there were three of us.
The other woman, faithful to sing in the choir, besides me, has been singing on stage with the Sunday morning worship leader for as long as i've been going to this church. I just found out this past week or so, that she was the last remaining member of what a Sunday morning choir that was started and dwindled before i was a part of this church. But she decided to pray for God to send others and to stand and sing, even if she was the only one. And there she is every single Sunday, singing on stage behind the worship team - and without a microphone, the one woman choir.
This week, i decided i'm not going to let her stand alone anymore. The Sunday worship leader has made it known that he would like the Wednesday choir members to join my friend on Sundays too. So, i'll be part of the two-woman choir. And i'll pray and believe with my faithful friend, for God to build us into The Coldspring Celebration Mass Choir.
How awesome would that be?
