This truly was the chance of a lifetime, a deal too good to miss. Our house would be a home where music lived. Never mind that he couldn't play it and I didn't know one note from another. Soon we were flicking knobs and switches to pump out percussion and stringed instru- ment noises to swing with the best of them. The novelty wore off. It sat for a little while until our oldest daughter at age four discovered how many sounds this wonderful toy could make. We let her bang away. One day we were surprised to hear her picking out songs she heard on the radio. From our first unreasonable leap of faith, other instru- ments followed, not only for her but for her younger brother as well. In the last 25 years a piano, trom- bone, drums, guitars, banjos, dulcimer, flute, and once, for a very brief painful time, even an accordion have joined our household. The underwear is no longer in the linen closet. Though, if I had to make a permanent choice between 25 years of music and a chest of drawers, you can guess where the under- wear would be. The house is quieter now.

We are quite com- fortable surrounded by the mementos and artifacts of our life. With only one child left at home we can easi- ly envision the day when the two of us will be alone. What next? we ask, scanning the shoreline for signs of where Christ is waiting to meet us. It seems there are two ways to age. Most of us look for Christ and when we recognize him, we stay in our boat and slowly make our way to shore, drag- ging our own particular nets of fish behind. Then there are a few of us like Peter. Once we realize where Christ wants to meet us we can eagerly leave our boats and nets behind. I don't think it matters much how we get to the place where Christ waits. After all, the net draggers were the ones who provided the extra fish so that everyone could eat. But now and then I long to be like Peter, able to let go of all things material and, at a moment's notice, leap from the safety of the boat to meet Christ unencumbered. If ever I gather that much courage, I think a hus- band with the wisdom to trade a chest of drawers for a lifetime of music will be glad to come along. w By ANN CAVERA ris year!!!
