....praise to the man....

...stake conference this weekend---got to do my favorite thing---direct music...Saturday evening was funny---had two songs changed---one right before the meeting and one DURING the meeting! Fortunately, Kiera Elledge, the organist, is amazing and rolled with the punches---albeit a bit shook up....a Ben & Julianne Winzenz sang "o Divine Redeemer"--one of my dad's favorites---and i got to accompany them....very very nice.
...Sunday morning got to lead the music---having a chapel & gym full singing back "praise to the Man'---what a glorious sound! total goosebump moment. I love looking over the congregation and seeing people happy to be singing. The choir had a great turnout and did a really nice job with "Come Thou Fount"--I call it the primary program principle---the spirit works during the performance and it sounds magnificent. We have a great group of people in our stake who are always willing to join in.
...and.....i get to get a new outfit for conference---so its all good...

like i need an excuse to get a new outfit.

just for you jasmine---put the whole ensemble back on!

Hearing about things like that makes me want to be back in Texas... Wish we had your talent in our ward! Miss you!

I didn't think I had seen that outfit before. I really liked it. You look great in blue. And I love watching you direct the music. I think it is the only time I actually look at the chorister. Good times.
