We were about to receive our final grades in geometry. It was the end of my sophomore year in high school, and my teacher, Irv Huss was passing out the report cards in our class. It was a festive atmosphere and the classroom was filled with gaiety and laughter. As Mr. Huss handed out our grades, he finally reached my desk. I will never forget him leaning down and whispering in my ear…”Greg, this is a gift …stay in music.” Thankful for his benevolence, I opened my report card and saw what mercy brings…It was a D.
I’m glad I stayed in music.
Failure and discouragement are part of life…. but God’s purposes are sure.
