Sweet Saturday

Had a signing workshop this morning and learned the entire song "He Knows My Name" in sign language! Beautiful!! We began learning "Amazing Grace" but time ran out. Learned that when signing songs, it's not always about exact words, but about meanings of words. And when performing in a group, everyone must agree on the signs used! Now a point of consideration: "Twas grace that taught my heart to fear, and grace my fears relieved, how precious did that grace appear the hour I first believed." Grace appeared. Did grace change you or did grace arrive?

I was asked about why I am learning sign language (or rather refreshing my skills). Autism. Because sign language can help me communicate when verbal skills challenge me.
