I have learned that there are very few things that are worse
than a DJ with no voice.........one of those is.....a wedding
officiant with no voice!
Last Saturday, after a cold night of much talking at the J103 Nights of Lights 5K and 1 mile run/walk I woke up with no voice! Barely a squeeky whisper would come out. And while this was a blessing for my wife and kids! (just kidding), I was worried to death because I was officiating a wedding later that day.
I called the Bride and Groom and asked if they wanted me to find a replacement. They there very gracious and said they would rather have me with no voice than someone else.
I immediately began drinking 8 oz of water an hour, lemon/honey cammomile tea, asprin and cold medicine and began inhaling steam every hour.
It worked somewhat and God gave me a "voice" to lead this couple in sharing their wedding vows.
Even though it worked out-I felt helpless and it made me rely on the Great Physician ever more.
My voice is on the mend now (as I get over a cold), but I will always thank God for that day of healing when I was a DJ with no voice!
