This day in history from:

Starstruck while Playing

I feel so blessed at today's mass.

I got to play with no less than Ray Sison. In case you don't know, he, together with Lionel Valdellon recorded Vespers 1 and 2. He's a professional flutist (he's with the MSO) and one of my inspirations in my flute playing. So you could imagine how starstruck I was.

I also heard his flute is worth about half a million pesos (about US$10,000.00). I now know it's true (it's a Verne Q. Powel, American-made, B-foot professional model). And just to prove how low my level of flute playing is, I did not hear the difference when I tried that half-a-million-peso flute. I even found it difficult to play the low-B. But then again, never in wildest dreams did I imagine even holding a valuable flute like that, much less try it out.

I hope I could say I held my own for tonight's choir. But I'm not even a fraction of his level of play. He was really fast and plays mostly at the third octave during the mass.

But even then, I feel so blessed and honored to have even played with him tonight. I hope someday I can be worthy to play that kind of flute.

And I hope he plays with us some more so I can learn more from him.

Side Prayers

Lord Jesus,
Teach me to be generous,
Teach me to serve You as You deserve
To give and not to count the cost,
To fight and not to heed the wounds,
To toil and not to seek for rest,
To labor and not to ask for reward,
except that of knowing
That I do Your Holy Will. Amen

May every word I speak be from Your Truth...
I ask come from Your Wisdom...
May every case I handle receive Your Guidance...
May every heart, every life I touch, feel Your Love.

And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying,
"Oh, that You would bless me indeed,
and enlarge my territory,
that Your Hand be with me,
that You would keep me from evil,
that I may not cause pain."

So God granted him what he requested.
