My head is aching and my eyes aren't focusing together, so I'm just gonna post a list of the music we are doing this Sunday. Maybe I'll have something to post about after I've caught up on the fourteen days of lost sleep.

Opening Song:
Hallelujah (Your Love Is Amazing)

Worship Set:
I Could Sing of Your Love Forever
Above All
In Christ Alone
How Deep the Father's Love For Us

Closing Song:
Mighty To Save

Our pastor is speaking on God's love this week, hence the focus of the worship. Although not a very upbeat set, the songs are very dynamic musically and lyrically. (I wasn't sure if "lyrically" was a word, but I just spell checked and it didn't pop up as a misspelled word.)

I'm excited about the music....well, as excited as I can get with a headache, blurry eyes and mushy brain. Also, Chad is supposed to be playing acoustic guitar this week, but he sliced open the tip of his pointer finger on his left hand. Those of you who play guitar, know someone who plays guitar, or have seen someone play guitar, you know this is a pretty important finger. I guess the cut is deep and, since my only other option is to have our lead player play rhythm, I am really hoping and praying for healing. Well, and because I love the guy and don't want him hurting. Naturally.

Okay, that's it. I'm gonna go indulge in a good cry. Or a good book. Probably the book 'cause I don't wanna have red eyes and streaky makeup for practice tonight.


UPDATE: It appears I was wrong. It wasn't his left hand, but rather his right, that had the injured finger. Since open wounds turn my stomach, I didn't take a good look. However, he managed to grip his guitar pick with some discomfort and we made it through Sunday alright.

Also, I decided to go for the book instead of the cry and chose a good suspense/mystery. Nothing like murder, mayhem and deception mixed with a few good fights and a dash of romance to shake the melancholy away.

I now have "Hallelujah" going through my head... I don't suppose that's a bad thing!

Hope Chad heals faster than humanly possible and that you feel better soon, too!

It's a big weekend, good songs!

Poor Chad! I'll pray that it heals quickly, ease some of your stress and his pain.

Book or crying? good choice in the book! Crying will make the headache pound harder and the brain mushier. =)

maybe you can find a touching book and do both!

I'll pray that Chad's finger heals up quickly. Love your lineup, by the way.

You sound like you need to take a nice long, hot bath, tuck yourself into bed, and get about 15 hours of sleep (which is probably unrealistic, but 9 would suffice, eh?) Everything will look and feel a whole lot better after some good sound sleep.

No crying! Go with the book! :)

Great set! I hope the service went well yesterday and that Chad's finger is all better. Todd and Taylor both play guitar so I feel your (and his) pain.

I also hope you got some rest and are feeling better!
