The week-end....

....was a very busy one.  In fact, the days preceding the week-end were busy ones as well!πŸ˜‰

There was another trip to Emory & Henry for a special occasion - the memorial service for a well-loved choral director who had retired a number of years ago.

Singing in the choir under his direction was an incomparable experience.  The chapel was filled with many people - probably 200 of us who had sung in the choir, plus others who had great appreciation for him and his positive impact on so many lives through the years.  It was an awesome time to be able to sing once again - under his son's direction - some of the music that had been so meaningful to us in past years.  Two of our three daughters were able to attend as well.

The local high school presented a musical program on the week-end, too.

This happens to be my all-time favorite movie, so anytime I have a chance to hear the music, I am anxious to be there.

Now, we have another week unfolding before us.  I send wishes for a Marvelous Monday to you!


  1. You seem always to have special ways to fill up your weekends, and they do keep you busy, with very little rest. I'm sure this special memorial service was most meaningful to all who attended. I hope you'll also have a Marvelous Monday, Sister!

  2. Have a beautiful week, Nellie! I'm still trying to recover from the weekend with three of the grands and being out of my normal surroundings and not being able to sleep. Not to mention being surrounded by all that youthful energy and not being able to keep up. LOL... so exhausting!

  3. I think that would be a nice play to go see. I enjoy that movie too.
    I also am sorry for your loss. I hope you have a good week.

  4. Nellie, How wonderful to have a memorial for your old director. I like the sound of music also. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

  5. Oh- What aq wonderful service to honor that director. What a nice turnout, too. Yep-gotta LOVE The Sound Of Music. xo Diana

  6. What a great tribute to him and an honor for a wonderful, well-=liked director. It was very nice you were able to attend.

  7. It was a busy time for you like you said. So sorry for your loss nellie though. Now he gone to sing with the angel choir. A step up for him... It's so nice that you were able to be there with so many of the others choir members.

    I love The Sound of Music too and I'm sure it was memorable and well performed by the high school kids.

    I hope your week will less busy and that you can relax a bit.

  8. Sounds like a wonderful way to remember him.
    I enjoy the Sound of Music as well. I remember seeing it the first time with my friend Bernice. Her mom took us and we all loved it. I've seen it quite a few times since then.

  9. So sorry for your loss, he sounded like an amazing musician!


  10. What a moving experience for you, Nellie. And so many - 200 singing!

    I also love "The Sound of Music"!
