Benjamin's Spring Concert
Last night I again, set amazed at our youngest son's playing ability. He had one of only two solos for the concert. Afterwards people asked him how long he practices, they were blown away. In comparison to the other students he is years ahead. The fact is..........it isn't his practice..........it is just a God-given-talent. As parents we can't take any credit, we have done nothing, other than provide the opportunity. We are now wondering where do we go from here? How do we encourage this gift God has given him at such a young age? We want to be faithful, while not being "too child" centered.
Today I wanted to just share with you our little's guys concert. He played in front of over 300 people last night. His legs hurt at the end from nerves. He said he kept thinking, "don't lock your knees or you will faith", which is what happened to his brother at our oldest son's wedding.
What was priceless last night was when a friend (age 10) came running up to him afterwards and said, "Ben, I knew you were good, but I had no idea you were that good!!!" I watched my son's eyes light up, as a peer gave him praise. I could just hug that kid!!!
This is to give credit where credit it due.............To God!!!, and may Benjamin's playing be for God's glory.
