Talents For Christ

3:17 PM

I had a really good time at Talents for Christ on Saturday. Thanks for all your prayers! I wasn't too nervous, and I did fairly well. Of course, I wasn't happy with how I did. But that's normal, for me. The preaching was wonderful and I got to hangout with four of the kids in my youth group. Everyone did a good job, and we each got a prize. We also found out that Andrea has a hidden talent for the violin.

I think that everyone had a good time playing capture the flag in the dark (lol). And it proved one of my many motto's: You never know what you have until you lose it. Or, in this case, you never fully appreciate your friends until it's pitch black and you can't see them. Haha. Anyway, I had to play in flip-flops, and a skirt. It's not the easiest thing to do, mind you. And it was dark. And the grass had just been cut. My white flip-flops are now green flip-flops.

For those of you who are crazy enough to want to see what I wrote for extemporaneous writing, it's pretty simple to find: just click on the page that says "extemporaneous writing." See how smart you are? Or maybe I just give good directions :)

Last night, the quintet I've been telling you about sung. I was pretty happy with it. My piano teacher wants the quintet to sing another song some morning in June, though. And I don't mind that at all, except for how I'll get nervous.

And that leads me to my next big news. I didn't get nervous AT ALL last night, when I played my flute for the offertory. Woo-hoo! That is a first. I guess what everyone has been telling me is true: the more you preform, the more you get used to it. With acting, though, I've never gotten nervous. But that's another subject.

I've been debating on whether or not to put some more of my novel, The Full Measure of Devotion on here. And should I keep on adding the play version? I'd like some input, so please comment!

Also, thanks for voting on my poll! If you didn't get the chance to vote, don't worry! You'll get another chance. I'm going to have a "get to know your friends" post in a few days. It will have a bunch of questions about yourself (nothing too personal, I'm not sure I want to know everything about you-- lol) and you get to answer them. I'll be doing it, too, so it's not like you'll be alone.

I suppose I'll get off now. Once again, I'm going to thank everyone for their prayers. I did get better, so I was able to go to Talents for Christ, and I wasn't extremely nervous. Now go have a great day!
