It’s been a while since I’ve posted because I’m currently in the middle of finals week here. I’ve been studying and finishing up projects. I’m taking two finals today (which involves three tests), and got my last one tomorrow. In the meantime, I still need to finish my extra credit project for one class, and I need to pack up everything I own and move it all to my new apartment before I leave for California this Saturday.
But the work is paying off. When talking to a professor about my grade in his class I asked if I could see what my final grade was. He agreed and showed me what I got. I did VERY well. A smile crept across my face because this is a particularly difficult class. He then said, “You don’t need to gild the lily any further.” Aww yeah. P’wned!
I’ve been getting some great feedback about “It Came upon the Midnight Clear.” Many people told me that it was their favorite piece from the entire night. Others told me they had tears in their eyes while listening to it. Many people said they really felt something uplifting and enlightening. That’s exactly what I was going for. I wanted to write something that would lift people up, and strengthen their faith in Christ. I don’t just want to entertain, I want to buoy up the spirit. Maybe I can help somebody when nothing else can. That’s my hope.
