I was listening to the radio this morning... and then the music started. I felt like I was back at the Detroit Opera house! Carmina!!!
Last February Phyllis sang with the Detroit Civic Symphony Orchestra. They performed Carmina Burana! I was so excited! I knew what it was before the announcer guy said 'Carmina Burana'. I immediatly called Phyllis 'do you want to go?' I don't know how I would have afforded it, but I thought she might want to see it. "No". well, that's solved :)
I can't really tell you in words how my heart felt when I heard the music.
It sounds kind of silly, but I know of God's grace when I look at Phyllis. I know what I've done in my life, and I know how awesome she is, and what love and joy she brings to my life. I remember watching her sing from WWWAAAYYY up in the balcony at the opera house, and I remember feeling like she was the only one on stage... "OOO FFOORRRTUNA!"
We spent this evening together, we lead very busy lives and any time when it's just the two of us, is such a blessing. We laugh. And laugh. And we're silly. And apparently the guy at Panera thought I might embarrass her, and I just told him "she knows I love her, and she's happy with that". He just replied "that's cool". The woman in Hallmark, she apparently does not appreciate our sense of humor. Ah. what does she know.
I'm so blessed.
Luke 2:40 And the child grew and became strong; he was filled with wisdom, and the grace of God was upon him.
This is one of the movements ... o fortuna!
