Best Gig
« on: July 11, 2013, 08:41:43 AM »

As a guitarist, I play many gigs. Recently I was asked by a funeral director to play at a graveside service for a homeless man. He had no family or friends, so the service was to be at a pauperís cemetery in the back country. As I was not familiar with the backwoods, I got lost.

I finally arrived an hour late and saw the funeral guy had evidently gone and the hearse was nowhere in sight. There were only the diggers and crew left and they were eating lunch.

I felt badly and apologized to the men for being late. I went to the side of the grave and looked down and the vault lid was already in place. I didnít know what else to do, so I started to play.

The workers put down their lunches and began to gather around. I played out my heart and soul for this man with no family and friends. I played like Iíve never played before for this homeless man.

And as I played ĎAmazing Grace,í the workers began to weep. They wept, I wept, we all wept together. When I finished I packed up my guitar and started for my car. Though my head hung low, my heart was full.

As I opened the door to my car, I heard one of the workers say, ďI never seen nothiní like that before and Iíve been putting in septic tanks for twenty years.Ē

Apparently, Iím still lostÖ

Iíve noticed that I have changed in many ways since Bible Truths and the forum and one of them is living life much too seriously.

Another one is learning to rest in God and truly trust Him.

I'm still a work in progress.

Craig, I think God's spirit touched the hearts of the men gathered around. And He touched you too. May he rest in peace. Only God knows how this event is gonna affect the lives of these men in the future. And that's because you got there late and gave it your all. God bless you.

I appreciate the sentiments, but it was a joke :o  I've never sang and played a guitar in my life.  But I'm sure if I did someone would definitely cry.

Hey Craig,

It seems that some of our number haven't yet caught on to your sense of humor.  8)  ::)
Perhaps they could go back over your history of messages and get a better idea of you unique funny bone.

I for one found your type of stories very enlightening and worthy of being shared with my family.
