Moment of Truth

We have the most wonderful Children's Pastors at our church and once again, they put on a fabulous presentation with the kids. Our oldest was part of the choir and was simply giddy about a little secret she was keeping about the play. I watched her intently the whole way through, trying to capture this surprise she had not even hinted about, with my camera! With heavy arms, I lifted the camera over and over, determined to document it.

In one particular song, I recognized that face of concentration which donned a suppressed smile and I knew this must be the moment of truth. Within seconds, she proudly thrust a sign, bearing the seventh commandment, high in the air. Oh, the rippling excitement that surged through my body as I snapped a shot of her very special job. Terry and I looked at each other and laughed at the sweetness of it all. "Did you get it?" he asked. I nodded. Knowing she would be anticipating our comments, I had the satisfaction of holding the evidence. I had triumphed in the world of motherhood.
Thanks again, Pastor Randy and Esther! You love the kids of our church and you're talented too! The message of the presentation was amazing and I'm sure many were touched by it.

Hi Heather,

I had no idea she had kept her special job a secret! That's neat. Thanks for sharing this with us. We always enjoy doing the musicals with the kids, also love to hear stories like yours, which make it all worth while!
Hope to see her out for Christmas!
