Count your blessings

One of the items on Christian Aid's Count Your Blessings Lent page last week was to give 10p (which I am doubling to make my math easier) for each friend or family member you saw during the week (because war in the Democratic Republic of Congo had seperated many families).

Yesterday was a Most Excellent day for seeing people, esp. people I know with LJ accounts: idasusan did a breathtakingly beautiful solo at church and poked her nose in the kitchen to say hi as I was cleaning out the coffee pot, serenejournal and her charming partners were wonderful hosts for her toffee-making party, and I finally got to see ayse and squeezehead, which made me very happy indeed.

cat_herder is back from The Gates of Noo Yawk, and while I'm glad she's had such a nice vacation, I'm glad to have her back too (even though I may not see her).

Paying it back, sweetie, paying it back.

I hadn't perused my bulletin because I was getting the coffee ready and Rita and I were among the last ones in.

So it hit me unexpected.

I didn't realize till a ways into it that you were singing in Hebrew. I was just letting it wash over me. :-)

What was the piece?

Now I know I'm not the only person who has sung in Hebrew at an Episcopalian church!

A setting of Psalm 121 by Ben Steinberg.

The whole choir sang a Debbie Friedman piece (and something else in Hebrew) in the fall. And that's just my listener memory.

Aw shucks, sweetie. Glad you are glad I'm back. Today is going to be the Laundry Day from H E (double hockey sticks.) So, if you are bored this evening, gimme a shout.

The other gates
I went to your journal and clicked on not-rocket-science. That was great! How thoughtful of him(or is it her?) to supply those of us without the money or inclination to see The Gates with such an artful creation!

Got home late-ish, but will give you a shout-out tomorrow.
