Our life is a Concert!

If practice makes perfect then there ought to be a good Christmas concert tomorrow night! We will play our hearts out and hope that the people who come will enjoy the fruit of our practice and in the end will want to stand and give us a great round of applause! I guess that is the pay a musician gets for a job well done!

When we are born, we start a learning process from the moment we open our eyes, vision blurred by whatever that stuff is they put in them at birth! When mine were born the first thing they did, even before the umbilical cord was cut, was to nurse. We learn to distinguish faces, numbers, letters, colors, and we learn right from wrong, quickly. We get an education and join the work force. All the things we do in life make up a detailed Pageant, the story of our life. When it comes time to lay me down to sleep, the final curtain falls and what we have done stands in eternity as a witness for, or against, us.

I have heard people say “I want to make my own mistakes” and to that I say rubbish! If I can learn from another’s errors then I want to do it so I might do more with less regret. I want to give back to those who have helped me and I want to pay it forward by helping someone else. I remember tucking my dad in one night in particular, he looked up so pitifully and said, “Dear, thank you for all you do, you are our angel.” I wanted to cry, instead I said, “Oh daddy, did I ever say thank you when you changed my diaper or fed me? You don’t owe me any thanks.” My heart tugged because I knew he would have loved to lie beside his sweetheart and hold her hand while he slept but had to sleep in the recliner, a real bummer way to spend the last three years of the seventy they were married!

At the end of my life will there be people that will care enough to stand by me? Have I done my best to learn and teach? Will I be able to stand before the Great White Throne on Judgment Day knowing my name will be found in the Book of Life? Will I hear Him say, Matthew 25:23  ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.’ As we go toward getting ready for Christmas and New Years Day, what can you do or give that is “of you”, so that when your “Concert” is ended the burst of applause you hear will be from the Angels in heaven?

Jesus gave the answer to what we must do, our way to practice and get ready for our final Concert in Matthew 25:37-40 “Then those ‘sheep’ are going to say, ‘Master, what are you talking about? When did we ever see you hungry and feed you, thirsty and give you a drink? And when did we ever see you sick or in prison and come to you?’ Then the King will say, ‘I’m telling the solemn truth: Whenever you did one of these things to someone overlooked or ignored, that was me—you did it to me.”

Do yourself a favor, if you are in or around the Atlanta area come out and hear this wonderful Christmas Concert 12-12-15 doors open at 6:30, food, fun, fellowship and good music!

About harolene

Thank you for stopping by for a visit! If you read my thoughts you will see that I am sometimes serious, at other times sappy or funny, occasionally I am sad and sentimental, but I am always sincere! I am a single mother who raised two children, born ten years apart and different sexes so first it was bows and dolls, pretty dresses and boys! When my son was born it was rough and tumble games, baseball, soccer, wrestling and girls! I am known for my "smile" and for my default answer to any situation, "no problem", which was something I didn't realize I did until it was pointed out to me! I am a moon watcher and a star gazer. I am astounded and feel so small knowing that every creature that has ever walked the face of this earth has gazed upon that same beautiful orb that my eyes can behold on any night when the earth is not wearing her cloak of clouds. My parents have made me the person that I am. Their love, veracity in all areas of life, humor and passion for their work and each other have given me hope that my life can actually be a happy one! Chances are if you are reading this you already know all this but again, I appreciate your stopping by! While you're here hit the "Like" button for me and thanks for checking in!
