is most definitely balm to the soul and rest to the weary heart. It was with heavy hearts we went to practice tonight - I don't think either Cindi or I felt the least bit like going. But we needed to. And I'm glad we did. It has a way of washing the sorrows out, or better, setting them into perspective. I missed two meetings tonight to do so, but it's only for this one concert and so I figured it was worth it - and it was. I'm ready now for whatever tomorrow brings, either in joy or sorrow, for:
Oh come, ye people, gather here
To hear the new of good cheer,
The King of kings, the Lamb of God,
Is born today in Bethlehem!
