Recently I've been searching my heart and praying for guidance from the Lord about the path that He has set out for me. I've been desperately missing the presence of kids in my life and it's been taking a toll on me.
If you know me at all you know that kids have always been a big part of who I am. At the age of 10 I was babysitting two kids everyday for a full summer. I was even a nanny for a family with four children for a while.
Anyway! I received an email from a friend of ours from church two weeks ago. She had been given my name as a suggestion for someone who would be a good fit to stand in as the new director for pre-K choir. Last week I observed the class as someone else directed and made the decision to go ahead and fill the position.
Last night was my first night to lead and it could not have gone better. There were about 10 or so 4 year olds in class last night and they all responded so well to the activities I had planned and the songs we sang. By the end of the night they were even coming up next to me to sing solos for all of the other kids. I left the church after class with a huge grin on my face. I was so proud of those kids and of myself, too! I'm not going to lie, it feels great to be called "Miss Nicki" again. :)
I just found out that our first concert will be on December 5th and I cannot wait to sit there and watch these amazing little people sing for God.
I feel so blessed.
