I’m a karaoke junkie - at least I thought I was until tonight. So, me and my girlfriend decide to go to a local karaoke bar where we can sing. She’s going around, talking to everyone, waiting for her turn up at the mic. I normally would do the same thing, but I ended up taking a cocktail napkin and writing down “The Memorarae” and “Anime Christi” (I’m trying to memorize them) inbetween my songs. And surprisingly, I only put down two songs instead of the half-a-dozen I usually give the KJ…
I’ve always had this notion that singing was what I lived for. Since my reversion back to the Church, I’m thinking constantly about our Lord, have songs of worship and praise running through my head, thoughts of Scripture coming and going…it’s glorious! But oh! So different for me! On weekend nights now, I’d rather stay at home, be with my hubby and kids, watch and little of ETWN, reading my daily Scripture readings, and prepare myself for Sunday Mass.
I know this is all wonderful, but I guess the reality of it has hit…I’m no longer the same person I was merely a year ago. Will there come a time where I will abandon my hobby (once a great passion and love) for karaoke singing, or can I still try to go out every once in a while? BTW, I’ve been doing the latter already, and even I’ve noticed that I’ve become restless in those karaoke bars, to the point where I see no real reason now to go out. This might be a little problematic for me, because I’m co-founder of a karaoke fan site on Yahoo! Groups, plus involved in a local karaoke magazine and website.
I know the Holy Spirit will lead me to where He wants me to go (I’m about 85% there, singing in choirs at church, where I seem to be most happiest at) but I’m just curious about some of your opinions here.
Thanks for any insight, guys!
