This was a cute story that was well written and entertaining. GOd bless~
I liked the way you "showed" your story. Great descriptions.

"The college band director ascended the ladder, raised his baton, and eyed all the bands in the north stands. The hush of anticipation could literally be felt.

His hands gave the first two silent beats, and as he directed the pickup note, the expression on his face changed from one of complete calm and professionalism, to one of shock and horror."

Took me back to my band days!! Thanks for writing.
I am not very musical, however, I was still able to delight in this charming piece. It took me back to my school band days where the director would get so frustrated with me because I could not keep in step. I was only in the colorguard, but that just made my tone deaf ear stand out more as my flag twirled at a different beat than the rest of the band. You did a great job with this story. The message is subtle, but all so important. We must all be on the same page and have Jesus as out conductor.
