Another collage made from various kits and bits and pieces in my collection.
It was midnight before I got to sleep and this morning I was awake at 4.30am. I lay in the darkness but sleep didn't return, so I switched on my lamp and did some crochet.
With mind wandering, I thought of yesterday. I was asked to close the little service in Chapel by singing the old Gospel song, 'If I can help somebody as I pass along'. I'm long past my sell-by date in the singing department but I had a go.
Following that I thought of a moment that made my heart miss a beat. Not life changing experiences like marriage and giving birth but beautiful, magic moments in your life that stay in your heart forever. I've had many but because I was thinking of music and singing, my mind went back a lot of years when both my son and I sang in the 'big church' choir. He was head choir boy and had the privelege (?) 0f wearing a medallion on a ribbon around his neck. I think he was 11 or 12 at the time and his voice had not yet broken.
He started that particular service by standing at the back of the church and singing the first verse of 'Once in Royal David's City', as a solo and unaccompanied. Pitch perfect and his beautiful young voice filled that beautiful old church of St. Nicholas. The tingle went up and down my back and I had to blink back tears.
I haven't thought of that memory in a long time. Strange how your mind works.
Would you like to share any 'magic moments' in your life with me. I'd love to hear them.
Hope I haven't bored you with a long post this morning. have a wonderful day, and big warm hugs from
