I am so glad that I serve a God who cares about the little things.
One of the main things I wanted to to do this year, was to go to Concord, MA and see the musical Ebenezer Scrooge’s Christmas Carol, written and directed by my inspiration for writing theater, David MacAdam, and starring a long time family friend, Glenn Gray, as the three messengers, or spirits.
But financially it just wasn’t going to happen this year. Vehicle-wise it was not even a smart idea, as our truck needs two tires, and Rich’s car is out of commission. (Long story, that.)
But on Friday, I was offered tickets to see the show, if I could find someone to bring me down. And a friend offered to drive me down. So I went!! It was so inspiring to be among those whose passion is life-changing theater again. It made me even more determined to carve out time each month to write in the new year.
And who doesn’t enjoy 2 hours and 20 minutes of uninterrupted chat with their girlfriend on the way down… and again on the way back!? 🙂
My heart thinks that Concord is my home away from home. It is definitely a place where a piece of my heart is. My mind is not sure it would even ever want to live there. But my heart sees it as the place where one of my biggest passions and dreams can develop and grow and take flight.
But God, in His infinite wisdom, has connected us with the folks there. Doors have been opened to me to participate in whatever way I can, from here. I am excited for opportunities to learn more about writing from our gifted friend there, to have him give input in my attempts to tell stories through musical theater.
My original title for this post was “Little Things,” and then as I wrote more about what Concord represents to me, I realized it was not a little thing.
I DO serve a God who cares about the little things. (Some day I’ll tell you the story about my colander. 🙂 )
But today, I am also glad I serve a God who remembers the big things… the deep-down, often-hidden, hope-deferred-makes-the-heart-sick things. He is faithful.
