A taste of FAITH, a touch of LAUGHTER.
On Fridays, at lunch time, I go to the Lighthouse Soup Kitchen with a ministry team. We sing and play for the people who come to have lunch. It’s always a very rewarding time.
I love to sing and play. It’s good to bring some music and joy to people who are going through hard times. They are so very appreciative. Our team considers it a real blessing to able to do this together.
So I went there today, even though I was tired and had trouble lugging my accordion around. I wanted to be there. I was not going to miss.
We hadn’t started our session yet. We were just setting up. I was trying to hang my scarf over my chair, when I took a tumble backwards off the stage, down a couple of stairs and ended up rather unceremoniously on my back on the floor!
I was instantly surrounded by a sea of concerned faces, everyone asking if I was OK, or if I needed help to get up. I said “No, I just need to stay still for a bit”. So I stayed still til I felt I could safely move.
I had hurt my right shoulder and my right hand because it took a fair bit of the pressure of the fall, but I was laughing because I felt so foolish with everyone staring down at me and I just could not get up. I was helped up eventually and everyone returned to the business of getting and eating lunch now that I was ok and mobile.
Nice to know that people care. I was really touched by their concern for my welfare. People are so kind.
I think I’m going to be sore…..
