It's been a long time since I got to play, just play, for fun. I didn't even realize the extent of the 'leader mode' I go into when we do worship music - even on Sunday mornings, when I am, arguably, completely comfortable and in the 'worship zone', as my friend Steve used to say.
Tonight, the responsibility was on somebody else's head. I got to follow, play along, and sing my heart out. As long as I knew what key we were in, I was good.
And it was so. much. fun.
Didn't hurt that the other guys on the platform were top-notch players. Solid musicians, every one, and great guys. They knew their stuff.
Tonight was incredibly refreshing.
Thus ends the five days that I could not comprehend getting through.
Me? I'm blessed.
