My New Calling

(For non-Mormons, "calling" is LDS speak for "my current job at church"). I just got called to be the Primary Pianist. Can you get more of a gravy job than this? At least 90 percent of the songs in the Primary Song Book are easy enough, that I don't need to practice them. I just show up and play songs for children. It's fun, and practices my sight reading, and if I mess up, the kids don't notice, or care too much. Gravy.

Plus you sometimes get to hear the kid's say funny things. Last Sunday, Aunt Claudia was giving a Sharing Time lesson on following Jesus' example. She told several stories of Jesus, and pointed out a different aspect of Jesus' character that we should try to follow. She told the story where Jesus heals the blind man by spitting in the dust and making clay to put on his eyes. She said something like "We may not be able to heal the blind man, but what else can we do to be like Jesus from this story." (She was fishing for "Service".) Dulaney Reed piped up and says, totally serious "Spit in the dirt." Funny!
