  •  Children are lovely and ... wow, hard sometimes (5+ / 0-)

    My own boy was scheduled to sing in choir today during Evensong at the Cathedral of St. John the Unfinished (the ECUSA cathedral in Manhattan). We were all so excited. But he didn't feel well or "on" and spent a great deal of the service fiddling with a pencil and running it through his hair and poking the eraser end into his ear. While he was supposed to be singing. In front of the Bishop.

    Oh, well. Our children's service is in a couple of weeks and should be perfectly lovely.

    Hope all blessings continue and blossom!

      in my 3 & 4 year old Sunday School class felt shy while they were singing in front of the church, so she pulled her dress up over her face. Mom almost died of embarrassment. Everyone else thought it was cute.

      I am always just overjoyed to have kids in church, even when they behave like kids.
