My Love Affair with the Guitar…

I’ve been down again lately.  For whatever reason.  Not wanting to be here.  Husband gone again.  Dirty house.  Etc.

So I cleaned the house.  Still didn’t feel better.  Read books with the kids.  Moped basically.

Then the girls and I practiced the guitar.

Now I feel much better.

I have made this one of my goals: to learn to play along with my children.

This is my new passion to be honest.  It’s become an obsession really.  I played the other day until my wrist hurt that’s how bad I want this.  And I’m very pain adverse.  I practice until my fingers hurt (building calluses, ya know).

I didn’t think someone as old as I am could learn (not that I’m old but I’m definitely not 10 anymore).  But it’s slowly taking shape.

I am determined to learn how to play My Savior My God by Aaron Shust, one of my favorite songs.  The first time I heard it I remember thinking, That Intro would be cool to play.

Sometimes I think this new hobby is the only thing that is sustaining me.  When I’m mopey, I get my guitar out and tinker around.  I watch lessons online.  Just to distract myself.

I’ve always wanted to play an instrument but since I grew up with a single mom I never had the opportunity.  Now I do.  And I intend to succeed this time around.

Not that it’ll be easy.  Especially for someone as musically-challenged as I am.  But I will give it my all and see how good I can get.

I have this new dream of being a worship leader or something crazy like that.

One never knows, do they?  Not until you try.

    Those who put themselves out front for God become the enemies targets for various attacks. Look at Paul. Wouldnt you just give everything for his view he got to have of heaven, tho?
    Worship music is good for the soul and spirit.
