Imagine They Are All Naked

The Day Draws Near...

The BIG day is tomorow! After a whole weeks worth of practice, sweat, tears and prayers...the time has finally come. The time for us to show the world what an amazing, miracle working God we serve! My more discerning readers might suspect, from my mentions of 'prayer' and 'God', that I am relying on divine intervention to see my band through. Well, you are absolutely right!...hahah.

Really, it is truly because of God that my band HodgePodge even made is this far. From the way He has seen us through the auditions, helped us in our practice sessions and united the band as a whole; God truly deserves all the credit, praise and glory. Like the song by Planetshakers go, 'It's all about You' :)

Why Naked People?

As I prepare for the performance, this old adage on how to cure stage-fright popped into my head. "Just imagine that you are standing in front of a room full of people, and everyone else is naked".

Anyone care to vouch for its effectiveness?
