Wow, it has been a long day. Today is the Memorial of Our Lady of the Rosary. I have been saying a daily Rosary for a very long time. It is one of my greatest devotions to Jesus. The Rosary is all about the life of Jesus and meditating on His life while reciting the many Our Father’s, Hail Mary’s, Glory Be’s and the Apostles Creed. It is my inclusion to a great morning of prayer. The Rosary is a great gift of love from Jesus and Mother Mary.
So today was another challenging day at work. When I left, I was pretty beaten down and tired but looking so forward to my choir rehearsal tonight. We play at Mass this Saturday and tonight was the only night we were able to get all six of us together. So when I arrived, I pulled out my raggedy $150 keyboard that I have been using for many years and headed into rehearsal. My group SIGN, Singing In God’s Name is a gift of love from God to me. These holy men share their great God-given talents with our community. They are a true gift of love from God to me.
Tonight, when I entered practice, this keyboard was waiting for me. I was told it was a gift from the group for leading them and going above and beyond in my work for this group. I cried. I did not know what to say. I am unworthy of this. I lead the group because God asked me to. I work on music because God asked me to. I try to do everything for the love of God. In that love, I love my group. I was given this gift out of love. It’s sometimes very hard to accept love from others. I still am shocked! Thank you Jesus. Thank you SIGN.
