After a 5 month hiatus, due to child-birth...I had my first rehearsal back with Cantare, a professional chamber group in Houston, last night. It was so good to be singing again with musicians that are so atune to the details. The sad news is that one of our members, Sally, just died in a car accident last week. Our first rehearsal was cancelled due to the funeral. I opted out for several reasons, one of which was I hadn't been to another funeral since Dad died and I wasn't sure I was up for another "tragic accident" funeral.
During last night's rehearsal Kevin, our director, spoke about Sally a bit and gave some reasoning. He said that sometimes people have more impact on us after we are gone than while we are here. And that maybe it was God's plan to have other's lives changed by taking her so quickly.
As with Dad, I know for certain he changed people's lives while he was here. But, after his memorial service, I had heard that he changed the lives of people he hadn't even met. Maybe God took him to change me. We will never really know during our time here on earth, but there is a Masterplan.
