They Were Rock Stars

Old ladies

By Bob Comeans

I spent Friday night with 21,000 of my new friends at the local indoor arena. We were all there, to see and hear, the latest world tour of a popular musician.

She did a great job. Amazing voice, athletic body, great choreography, rocking dancers, awesome set and lighting, and a sold out house.

She had it going on. She put everything she had into the almost two hour show. The audience loved her. No one was disappointed.

She was a Rock Star.

I spent Sunday afternoon with 200 of my new friends at the local assisted living community. We were all there, to see and hear, the local church offer a worship service to the elderly residents.

The local church did a great job. Amazing old hymns sung by the praise team and wheelchair bound residents, uplifting guitar and piano accompaniment, focused communion and meditation, powerful message by the pastor, and a congregation of residents and visiting church members, mixed together, filling the auditorium.

They had it going on. They put everything they had into thirty five minutes. They all loved each other. No one was disappointed.

They were Rock Stars.

      They’ve been singing those hymns for 50-60 years I imagine. They sure knew all the words by heart!

      I got to sit and talk with a woman recovering from a stroke. She could still remember her garden of roses. One of many!

    Must have been a great time. I used to enjoy my parents and friends when they got together. They always had such imagination,
    and knew how to have a good time.
