A Little Christmas Tune for You

Hello, family and friends!

Since about October, 2014, I’ve been taking piano lessons from a nearby piano teacher named Leah Wendt. Through the last year, I’ve been learning a good bit more about reading notes instead of just making them up. I still enjoy playing by ear, though, because it’s a lot easier and quicker for me. Here is a video of a little melody I made I thought you would enjoy, posted by my piano teacher. It’s a blend of Canon in D and The First Noel. I hope you enjoy it!

-Levi

P.S. On another note: thank you all for commenting on my post last week and encouraging me through each of your words. I was overwhelmed by your kind notes and stories. I am responding to each of your comments, but it is proving to be a bit difficult. Keep me in your prayers.

    Hey, Levi, it’s me Catherine. This was so nice! (and much better than I would ever be. People kept saying I should play piano because my fingers were so long, but that just makes them all the more clumsy! 😉
    I went and read your previous post. I didn’t read everything from the other people, but I got the gist of what they said. I’m not going to give you a sermon, but I want you to know I’m thinking of you. Hang in there. I know what it’s like growing up in the Church. There are pressures and expectations, and I know that, for myself anyway, trying to be Bible smart and saintly got too hight on the priorities list so that I turned into a kind of pharisee. Thank stank, and I don’t know when it really hit me that I was being crazy selfish and not living like the stuff I had memorized.
    I now feel more driven, but I’m not nearly where I should be. I apologize for being one of the people who said I was a Christian but didn’t let my heart get transplanted. I can say that it has been now. I’ve been reading and listening to stuff by Francis Chan. If you want to see someone who really gets this whole Jesus thing, it’s him. 😉
    Hang in there my friend.

    This grandma couldn’t be more proud! And I’m sure your father is too! Awesome job! Getting excited to see you! Love you! And needless to say, I pray for you often and KNOW that God is working ALL things together for good. (Romans 8:28-39).
