Tired, but Happy
Anyway. Yesterday, I was able to be a part of the LDV auditions! This definitely has factored into my tiredness - 10 hours of being at the piano off and on can really do a number on ya. I totally had flashbacks to being the rehearsal accompanist for the musical in high school... those were the days! Haha. But it was actually really neat to be a part of it all yesterday. And to watch all the fabulous people that came through and auditioned was really fun! I also felt like I got to know the presidency a lot better in those long hours, which was just great. They're all such wonderful people.
The best (and hardest, in a way) part of the night though, was after all the auditions were over and it was time to decide who would be part of the group for the semester. I think the way the decisions were made for LDV are different than any other choir I've been a part of. While musical ability was certainly taken into account, overall it was about the presidency and Bro. Salmond following the spirit on who needed to be selected. I was asked to stay and help with the process, and while I gave a little bit of input, I mostly just watched as they made the decisions. It was incredible to see the way the spirit worked and how easy most of the decisions were! It was such a neat thing to realize again that Heavenly Father has a plan for each of His children. His hand was definitely in this process last night, and it was a wonderful experience to witness that. After seeing this whole process, I'm so much more excited for this semester! I know that Bro. Salmond and the presidency are doing the right things and going about them the right way, and I feel really privileged to be a part of it.
I'm also grateful to have strengthened my testimony of Heavenly Father's hand in our lives. Truly, He knows what's best for us. What a comfort that is!
Happy Wednesday. :)
