Such passion here - you put me right in the moment with you. This was delightful.

Delightful! If it's offered from the heart, it's sweet to God no matter how out of tune it might be to anyone else.

Isn't it amazing how all of our voices blend together and sound so good, despite what -- heyhem... some of us sound like? :)

Great hook, great "voice" (your writer's voice, that is...). Wonderful story.

Loved the story! I could "see" the conversation taking place with the older man. The phrase, "I'm going to have one of those velvety, rich alto voices..." was perfect.

Ooh, I feel just like your MC when I sing in church. Lovely picture of worship, and a good story too. :) Cat

Wonderfully described worship! I like everything about your story: the characters, the writing, and the happy way it was all presented.
I love pieces done in first person, and this one's no exception. Great tone. I enjoyed reading this.

That's probably why the Lord said for us to make a joyful noise. He's after our heart not our talent. Good job.
I too am one who makes a joyful "noise" unto the Lord. I love it when everyone sings so loud that they drown out my voice and I can really sing out without feeling self-conscious. Your story is fresh and crisp.
I DO PRAISE JESUS FOR THE WAY YOU EXPRES YOURSELF!
BEING A "CROAKER " MYSELF, I DO KNOW WHAT YO MEAN..

mAY THE LORD BLESS AND ENCIRCLE YOU WITH HIS MIGHTY ARMS, SISTER CROAKER!
