I have a confession...I'm terrified.
tomorrow is our annual Christmas Carol Concert at the Cathedrale downtown. Over 1000 people will be there.
And I'm reading in front of them.
For most people, this wouldn't be a big deal. But speaking in public is a huge fear I've had all my life. Other than something awful happening to one of my family members, this is one of the things in life that scares me most.
But I'm going to stand up at the front of that beautiful church tomorrow and read 6 verses from Isaiah.
I just have to remember that this isn't about me.
My sweet 9 year old had some advice for me when I asked what I'd do if I messed up.
And here is what she said...
Mama, the people who are your friends know how brave you are for just doing it. The people that don't know you, well, most of them don't speak English anyway. And plus, you just have to learn to laugh things off.
Pretty wise advice, I think!
