Doing The Christian Walk With A Funky Strut

Digging.

How to take one’s mind off the family drama–

Haven’t touched my basses in 2 weeks thanks to the family obligations.  Back to church tomorrow, short set list, it’s all songs we’ve done before.  I could have just cruised through it.

But decided to shake things up a bit, perhaps literally.

Felt moved to drop tune and learn all the songs that way.  I haven’t messed with drop tuning in at least a year.

Turns out it works splendiferous with this week’s set list, and it completely distracted me from the weight on my mind for a while.  Particularly while doing a bit of transposition work (on one song we’re playing in a different key to the original).

Stepped out of my comfort zone, to find a new comfort and peace.

Thank You, Lord, for my musical gift.  You’ve always worked Your healing touch through it.

Hoping that peace and healing flows through my instrument to someone at service tomorrow.

    It did. You were really gettin’ your groove on today. Thanks for sharing your gift and I hope you continue to find peace throughout the week even in the midst of most certain chaos that will come. 🙂

    I’m glad it was edifying. I know the rumble of those low D’s was certainly therapeutic for me, and the look on Geoff’s face was priceless. LOL. Thanks so much for the kind thoughts and prayers…gonna need every ounce of peace I can muster in the coming days, both in personal and professional life.
