One of my favorite things to do is practice my violin. It has only been two years since I received it, but it feels like forever for me.
When I was four, I heard someone playing the violin at a homeschool day that we attended. I loved the sound of it, and decided that I would like to play the violin as my choice of an instrument.
A few years later, Mom and Dad put me into piano. I took piano for 5 years, and then I began self-teaching myself the rest of what I needed to know (I am still learning ;) ).
We began looking at violins, to see what the price ranges were. They were way over budget for me! I began to pray about it, and we found one very low-priced on the internet. I was thrilled! I can remember checking to see when it would arrive every day on the shipping tracker online.
When it arrived, I actually cried. I could not believe God had seen fit to give me one.....
Now, I am learning to play, teaching myself. It is going slower than it would if I had a teacher, but I am not screeching as much, so I suppose I am improving! :)
I thought I would share a few pictures from today's practice:
With God, anything is possible. I had only dreamed of this, but how much more God wants to give us if we just ask!
Wishing you a lovely day!
