A mix of new and borrowed ideas for primary choristers!
Thursday, March 3, 2011
So, the other day my 10 year old daughter said to me, "mom, do you know what i love about you being in primary? I love that you LAUGH at yourself when you make mistakes." She proceeded to tell me how she gets so embarrassed when she makes mistakes and that she is amazed i can laugh off my own blunders in front of primary. She said her new goal was going to be to take herself less seriously and laugh at her "embarrassments". Who knew that that would be the lesson she took to heart? So i guess what i'm saying is, LAUGH! We have to! We essentially "perform" each week and we will undoubtedly make mistakes. (or at least i do!!) What better way to overcome our missed words, wrong words, or even being out of tune!
Remember the old primary songbook called, "Sing With Me" from eons ago? That orange book has many fond memories for me and is the namesake of my blog. In memory of my mom who was chorister way back then and taught me many things that I am trying hard never to forget now that she is gone. In this calling, I learn something new each week and have loved the resource of so many chorister blogs out there and thought i might chronicle a few of my own adventures. I'm a relatively new chorister and my blog is for us "greenies" who are experts at gleaning ideas from others and still learning the ropes of primary. I hope you find something useful on this site. Happy Singing!
