Senior Recital

In the past five years, I’ve learned a great deal about music.

As our daughter has been working toward her degree, I’ve been impressed.

There’s so much to music beyond knowing the notes and reading the music.

God has stretched and grown our daughter in amazing ways.

These have been very memorable years, especially since she’s gotten married and had two children during it all. (She’s expecting their third baby in December! Squeak!)

Tomorrow is her Senior Recital.

It’s the culmination of all her years of study jammed into one night’s performance.

She will be singing in different languages.

The program is varied to give us a feel for her range.

I’m thrilled that she will be playing both her guitar and her ukulele.

Her guitar was a Christmas gift we got her many years ago with the help and expertise of our brother-in-law, Jon.

The ukulele was a recent graduation gift from her grandmother.

The one she’s always played is an antique from my aunt and does not have the ability to be plugged into the sound system and thus cannot be used.

There’s a ton of last minute things to see to today.

I’m praying for God to be glorified in all this.

Because He is the One who gave her the gift and the calling.

I know He is the reason she is able to do it.

I recently ran across a note in my Bible.

This note was to remind me to pray this verse for my daughter.

I’m praying again for her and will be tomorrow.

Dear Lord Jesus,

Thank You for Your gifts. Thank You for all Your provision for our daughter and her family. Lord, thank You for this opportunity. Please, help her to continue to give all glory and praise to You. Lord, please help her to worship You in the beauty of holiness. Thank You so much for Your faithfulness. May Your name be glorified. Amen.
