Another Children's Sacrament Meeting Program under the belt
We did it! We successfully completed another Primary Sacrament Meeting Program! After months of practice, encouraging, teaching, leading, playing games, coaxing, and cajoling, we survived another of these adventures. Some weeks the children sang like the Tabernacle Choir. Some weeks they sang as if they'd never heard these songs in their little lives. But in the end, they came through.
There were children swallowing the microphone, and children speaking too quickly to understand. There were children with their parts memorized flawlessly and children who needed just a bit of help. There were children singing their hearts out and children singing out only the two or three words they knew really well. There were children standing up on cue and children standing once they realized everyone else was up.
There were smiles. There were tears. There was the sweet Spirit of the Lord in the meeting.
Now, on to next year's songs....
