just breathe

Those were words my sweet Jesus said to me over and over tonight. We're only 3 days away from our Childrens Choir performance. Tonight was our pre-dress rehearsal. Sadly they had had a huge end of the year party right before I got them and man were they wired! I love love love these sweet kids, but today.... no, I always love them! Even when they're wild and jumping all over the stage. They really have worked hard on the program and I had hoped for a better outcome tonight, but I know they'll bounce back. Saturday is our full dress rehearsal and I have hopes that it will turn out much better than tonight. I have learned through this experience that God has sent me children to teach me patience. I have failed the test many a time, but praise the Lord, He lets us take make-up test after make-up test. I really am excited, and I know in the end it will all come together. Tonight I'm just feeling a bit overwhelmed and stressed. One bad practice shouldn't bring me down, but it has a little tonight. I came home put the boys to bed and fell face down and prayed. It will come together, I know it. God has given us all the tools we need and the kids are really exicted about it. (albeit a little *too* excited) I'm looking forward to practice Saturday. The girls look so stinkin cute in their poodle skirts and the boys are going to look cute in thier jeans and t's. The program is called Solid Rock Cafe, and boy are we rocking it! If you're in the area and can make it, come on. It's gonna be a rockin' rollin' good time! On a serious note, pray for my nerves and my patience. We're almost to the finish line and I think that's the most stressful time of all.
If you've read this far, thank you for "listening" to my ramblings, you're awesome!
