Just an ordinary day at church. The differences were that Yeiters were out of town and our attendance was very low for some reason. Because Susan wasn't there I brought our piano and attempted to play for church. I am in no way, shape or form a piano player. I have basically taught myself what I do know, which isn't much. I took some lessons from a lady in our church when I taught school for a year, and I also had a college roomate give me lessons for one semester, but that is basically it. Having piano accompaniment really does add to the service, so I wanted to try. I'm not sure if I added or detracted...hopefully I blended in seamlessly and didn't stand out too much. You are probably thinking, "How in the world can someone play hymns with not even a whole year of piano lessons!" Well, google the Hymn Fake book. It is wonderful!!! Of course, I am limited in what I can play, but this book along with the Gospel Fake book gives me quite the repetoire. Everything is in the key of C, you just have to learn some chords, which are spelled out in the back of the book. It makes it sound like I actually know what I'm doing! I'd love to truly learn to play the, pick up a piece of music and play, but at my age and with everything going on in my life, I doubt I'll ever learn. But I love these fake books. I usually sit down and play about a half hour every day. It is relaxing for me. Anyway, the only picture we got today was this one.
You can see Drew up in the front row with his arms around his buddies. And Tom Mike is probably giggling in the picture because he is leading music and the pianist can't keep up with him!
Pin It!
