How do I feel?

Yesterday was quite an emotional day for me. In the last month our ward has been split and so our ward in my church is trying to restaff many of the callings that are needed to make up a ward. I was called in yesterday by a member of the bishopric for a new calling.

First of all I want to tell you how hard this was for me. I have been in nursery for the last 10 months and I have thoroughly loved it. I have such a deep love the for the children of the ward and have grown to love these children almost like my own. I was pretty emotional about this change because of my attachment to my little friends.

Well I was called to be the ward music chairperson, I guess that means that I am in charge of any music that goes on in the ward. I flat out told the bishopric that I would rather be in primary or in nursery but that I will do anything that I am asked to do. So yes I accepted and I am sure as with any other calling it will be a growing experience for me. I have a great love for music and I am so deeply touched by it and have seen and felt it touch people in a way that nothing else can. I love to sing even though I am not the best at it. I like to think that people don't plug their ears when they hear me sing. I am truly thankful for the many beautiful pieces of music that have been created that touch so many lives. (maybe some day I will see the reason for this and will once again be able to work with the beautiful children in primary but for now I will do what I can to do my best in my newest endeavor. Wish me luck)

oh congratulations kate! Nothing touches the soul like music. It gets me crying faster than any words. What a great experience you can make this. Use lots of people in the ward to contribute with musical talents they possess ie, singing as families, singing as different organizations, use musical instruments. I've seen some really neat organ and piano duets played etc. What a fun job! You'll make it great! Congratulations. It's all about what comes from the heart ♥

You'll be really good at that calling but that is sad you have to leave the nursery. I was really sad to be out of young womens when the ward split but I was just called as first counselor again so I am really excited. Tell Angela I said hi and that we miss all of the girls in young womens :)

I am certain that you will excel in this calling and be blessed as you give it your best! And I'm certain, too, that you will come to love it as much as you loved nursery. Congratulations!
