It is my favorite time of the year when the children at Church get to speak their inspired words of wisdom and sing Primary songs of praise to God above. But first comes the two weeks of practice before the actual Children’s Sacrament Meeting Presentation (CSMP) takes place.
Mayhem is a possibility.
Practice takes place for two hours tomorrow and again the following Sunday. Ususally the first rehearsal is a bit rough because the schedule is changed up and the younger children get lost in their minds for the shift in routine. The older ones usually handle change better but there are a lot of moving parts so they tend to get lost in chatting with each other.
No matter. It is a wonderful challenge to put all of those little moving parts, ages 3 to 11 years, in some semblance of order, all while praying the Heavens rain down the exact measure of help needed to temper those marvelous little spirits. There are additional prayers asking for fortitude and patience for every adult trying to help out.
It will be lovely to work our way through it. It always is a learning experience. It is always a life changing experience.
