In a couple of hours, I start playing for the first of 3 services - 7pm, 11pm and then tomorrow morning. And MUCH, MUCH more music than at regular services! I practiced 3 hours last night and was exhausted and achy after, but had to do another long practice stint this morning. Instead of running errands, though, I came home and lay down for awhile. I think it helped, plus tramadol and a few extra mg's of prednisone! Anyway, I would appreciate a prayer or two for making it through these services in decent shape. Having to worry about stamina and aching is still relatively new to me, and winter is definitely a worse season for me! It's hard for us to pace ourselves without lessons learned the hard way, isn't it???
