Crazy week and show on Saturday

Well, it’s been a crazy week, and you can’t tell me that God isn’t good!

I went to direct my choir on Wednesday night last week, and fell asleep in the car on the way there (and no, I wasn’t driving!!). It’s only 15 minutes, and I was so out that my husband had to wake me up in the parking lot – I didn’t know the car had stopped. Weird. In choir, I started feeling really warm and a bit woozy, and I can’t say it was my best rehearsal ever – thank goodness my choir’s very patient with me! I went home and went to bed, and didn’t get up again until Saturday, yikes!

I was stressing out too, because I had a show Saturday night about 3 hours from home in Chesapeake, OH, and I’ve never canceled a show. I didn’t want to start now! I also had a very full Sunday morning at church yesterday, covering a lot of stuff (we were missing various members of our worship team this week), and I wasn’t really able to stand up.

Well, I prayed a lot! And I got up at noon on Saturday, got ready, drove to the show with my mom, and had the most amazing experience of God just giving me the strength to do it. It’s in our weakness He is strong (2 Cor. 12:9). My mom drove me home, and I got up the next day and was able to do church, even though I was pretty exhausted, and then I came home and took a 3 hour nap. 🙂 But today is much better.

I do want to give a shout out to the youth at Chesapeake Church of the Nazarene! My show on Saturday was to cap their 30 Hour Famine for World Vision, and they were an awesome group – I really respect and appreciate the people who will do that to raise money for kids who really need the help and are dying of hunger. This group even baked bread for the needy while they were fasting for 30 hours – talk about torture! The smell of the bread baking was incredible, and I so appreciate their hearts. You go!!

I’m off to catch up on the millions of things I didn’t do last week. Sigh. But so happy to feel better!
