I got a real shock at choir practice last night. David asked me to fill in for him on the organ on Nov. 18 when he will be out of town. Since I've never played a pipe organ, only a Hammond, he's giving me lessons between now and then. And it's been 20+ years since I played a Hammond. This is a picture made at PBC around Christmas 1986.

Ooooh! To say I'm a little nervous about this is a huge understatement. Actually, I'm scared spitless! Where is all that audacious nerve I had when I volunteered for this? People of prayer, it's time to do your thing. I'm going to have to do major stretching to get this behind me. And I agreed to sing another solo, too, not on the same Sunday though. Let's hope I don't make a complete fool of myself. It's been known to happen. Note to self:

God is able to make all grace abound to me, so that in all things at all times, having all that I need, I will abound in every good work. 2 Corh 9:8

What would we do without the help of the Good Lord?

I got a shingles vaccination yesterday and so far, haven't had any trouble with it. Pam got hers last week and her arm burned and itched a good bit. Since it's a brand new shot, Becky, the nurse who gave mine, had to do research on it before she gave it. She didn't even know there was such a thing. I got the feeling I was the first one at the University OB-GYN clinic to request it. She wanted me to report any reactions I have so she would know what to tell subsequent patients. I left feeling a little like a guinea pig.

It's not a cheap shot, either. Mine was $185 and Pam paid $300+ at a private clinic. I'm not sure whether my insurance will pay for it or not, but I asked them to submit a claim.

Since I skipped gym time on Tues. and Weds., I've got to go today, so I'm ooh.
