My Christmas Miracle

So today in sacrament meeting they announced that the opening hymn would be Away in a Manger. My heart fluttered just a bit because that meant I had been given another chance to sing The First Noel. I quickly looked to that thingy on the wall where they put the numbers of the hymns. "213, 213, 213" I chanted in my head. . .

It wasn't there. We sang Away in a Manger, and I enjoyed having one more week of Christmas songs with only a slight feeling of loss. However, when Bro. Folkerson got up to announce the rest of the meeting, he said there had been a small change to the program. For the intermediate hymn we would sing The First Noel. It was a Christmas miracle! It was accomplished by a certain dashing, young gentleman who sits in a convenient location on the stand from which to change songs, namely the organ bench. Isn't that romantic? I thought so. I think I'll go snuggle with him now.

I was wondering if you had anything to do with the song change. How cute of Kevin! It is my favorite Christmas hymn as well.

I was sitting at the organ when I noticed that The First Noel was again not on the schedule. I kicked myself for not having called the music director earlier in the week to see if we were going to sing Christmas hymns - then I figured that, since I was the organist, I could just change it anyway! I passed it by her and then told a member of the bishopric and voila! After sacrament meeting, the bishop thanked me for being able to change the song on a moment's notice. I'm glad I could too.

Ha ha! I'm happy for you. *sniff*

By the way, how is your three big callings going- plus having a toddler and an Elder's Quorum President husband? I think about you all the time. I was released from Primary Chorister to be called to Ward Choir Director- they are both such big jobs (at least I think so). I hope you are not too overwhelmed, and if you are, I hope the Priesthood Brethren read Elder Ballard's talk from last April Conference. :)
