This morning while leading worship, I was supposed to sing the line "heavenly storehouses ladened with snow."

But I got tongue tied or something, fumbled the lyric and sang "heavenly whorehouses ladened with snow."

Yes, I did. Right into the mike. Nice and loud.

I was so stunned for a moment I wondered, "Did I just sing whorehouse?" Then I hoped no one else heard... yeah, right.

I cracked a small smile a few times, fighting laughter, knowing to not, not, not look at Tony or over at Dave, my guitar player.

I'm sure this morning will be on heaven's blooper reel. God has a great sense of humor and visted us with His presence inspite of my "oops."

Oh. My. Goodness. I was looking online to see if anyone else had done this same thing. I AM SO GLAD I'M NOT ALONE.

I fumbled the same word in a quiet time of prayer and ministry time one night after church, and sang "whorehouses" loudly into the mic (because, naturally, this is where the songs builds and gets louder!) and was so surprised at what had come out of my mouth - but it's not like you can just stop singing mid-sentence, I had to keep going. I'd hoped that no one noticed, but more than one shocked prayer servant found my eye and let me know I'd been sprung!

So awkward. If it's not the most inappropriate mix-up of a theological concept ever, I'm not sure what is!

Anyway. Glad to know I'm not the only one tripping over that particularly cumbersome phrase of Chris Tomlin's...
