Guitars and Pianos in Heaven

Today was the day all students and teachers eagerly wait for beginning in about…October. It was the last day of school before Christmas break. The morning flew by with making Christmas cards for parents, a science test, math test, and band. The students were so excited to come in from recess and prepare for the Christmas party. I told them I would open their presents before the party, and it was so fun to have them sit around as I opened each gift. They put so much thought and love into each one. They really personalized them to me and my love for the little things—ducks, bags, apple cinnamon tea, etc.  One student got me a pretty pen and said, “I know you love to write and if you could, you’d write for hours a day.” True statement. It was then when I realized, “Wow. It has been awhile.” I also looked at my students and remembered how much they pick up on those little things that I say.

The Musical Transformation

Psalm 108:1 “My heart, O God, is steadfast; I will sing and make music with all my soul.”

This story was written as a gift to one of the greatest teachers I have ever had-one who not only taught me the language and theory of music, but also taught me patience and endurance. This descriptive essay was written in 2006 to encompass a span of thirteen years and one of the greatest spans of learning in my life.
