I don't think I have ever had a performing opportunity that has fulfilled me or made me as happy as singing on Sunday mornings. I am notorious for loving to perform, but despising rehearsals, (unless I am the star.) This last year on Praise Team has been the first time I have ever loved rehearsing as much as performing; and I think it's b/c every single time I sing these songs - no matter if it's for practice or the real deal - it means the same thing, and it feels so good. It's not about *me*, like every recital & theatre production I've ever done. This is bigger than me, and there's something very freeing about that.
Neil (our BFF & actually our pastor) took this clip on his phone early this morning during rehearsal. Just a tiny snippet, but makes me happy. :-)
