Please pray for me...

So about a week and a half ago my parents split up... We are a very christian family and things like this are not supposed to happen. It has been very hard on me and my siblings. and at first I was asking questions like "God, What did I do?" "Why did you make this happen?" "If You really love me why did my dad leave?"

But then about two days later, I started singing... I started singing hymns, and worship songs, sad songs, happy songs, but all songs to God. I started reading my bible more and seeing in every verse how God loves me. That He never stops loving me and that yes, my faith will be tested. But when Satan sends the hardest things at me God will NEVER leave.

I am not saying that it's not hard. I'm not saying that my heart doesn't ache, that I wonder how my life could have fallen apart in ten minutes, and that I don't pray every second for a miracle and that Dad will come home.
What I'm saying is that I can bear this because I have God. Who loves me unconditionally. thats what makes it bearable.

I gave myself to Jesus last year, I have not yet been baptized but I hope to be soon.
This has been my first test of faith since I said "God, I'm yours,"

It's not easy...
In fact I have to work hard every day to get out of bed and not just start bawling.
But God has my back...And that's enough...

Please pray for my family, pray for a miracle. And pray that God will give me the strength I need to get through this.

I'm trying to be brave and strong. But I need prayer. I'm struggling. I'm not ok. But I'm trying to be.

Count until a Pro user comments

Inspired the game over at MyAnimeList (http://myanimelist.net/forum/?topicid=1518596), let's count upwards and see how far we can go until a count breaker (listed below) comments and makes us start over.
(The title is kept for historical significance. Count breakers were Pro users with 200+ followers in Season 1)

Rules:
- A player may only post once every 24 hours** or after another player has posted, whichever comes first.
- A post by a count breaker (listed below) restarts the count (that post is 0).
- The count must go up in order (no missing numbers).
- A counter who holds the last post of a run of at least 10 becomes a place holder.
- A counter can only hold one place at a time. If they win a run that is higher than their record on the board, their record is updated; otherwise, the run is ignored and not placed.***
- Top 3 place holders become count breakers next season (this includes staff).
- The season restarts every 12 pages.
- A run is allowed to spill into the next season, up to a maximum of one page. The new count breakers start as soon as the count is broken or when the count reaches the second page, whichever comes first.*
- MuseScore staff (those with the "staff" badge) count as normal, but they can additionally nullify a count breaker's 0 post and turning it into a regular count post by posting immediately after it (i.e. with no post in between). The staff's post should be x+2, where x is the number in the post immediately before the count was broken.****

* Introduced in Season 3
** Introduced in Season 6
*** Introduced in Season 7
**** Introduced in Season 10

As a courtesy, if your post is wrong because someone posted before you, edit your post instead of deleting it.

Current Season: Season 10
Next Season: Page 121

Count breakers for Season 10:
- ~𝔏𝔦𝔷𝔷𝔞𝔭𝔦𝔢~
- Aqueous Humourati
- ♬𝔅𝔬𝔭𝔭𝔩𝔢♬

Example (* means a count breaker, ** means staff):
1. A: 1
2. B: 2
3. C: 3
4. D*: 0
5. C: 1
6. E*: 0 :P
7: F**: 3 :P :P
8: A: 4
... and so on.

I'll start: 1

Transgenderism

What are your thoughts on it?

I can not understand Transgenderism.
If you are born a girl, you are a girl. Nothing can change that.
If you are born a boy, you are a boy. It's not that hard to understand. 

But that is why we debate about it so please show me the other side of this argument.

Plz help!

I just started playing alto sax last week for a summer program and I think all in all it’s an easy instrument to start off on (maybe because I have been playing clarinet for 3 years). But I am still struggling with holding it. It’s very heavy and sometimes my thumb is swollen from holding it. My friend who has been playing alto sax for 4 years says my sax is bigger than hers. I’m sure its alto because my music teacher gave it to me and I can’t switch it out for a different one. Does anyone have any tips on how to hold the sax? Thxxx and I appreciate it- Flutinetist ^~^

I need some new song ideas

A friend and I are seniors in high school and we have a band. I play alto saxophone and he plays drum set. We have played at basketball games, in school concerts, and background music at various school events. Our next (and possibly last) performance is going to be at our graduation, so obviously we want it to be our best performance yet. Our problem is we cannot seem to find a good song/songs to play. We are looking for something fast, upbeat, and fun. Somewhere between 3 to 15 minutes would be perfect. Some of the songs we have played before include: Shipping Up To Boston, Megalovania, Blue (Da Ba Dee), 300 Violin Orchestra, Harder Better Faster Stronger, Eye Of The Tiger, ect. Hopefully that gives you a good idea of the type of music we enjoy playing.

Any song suggestions would be very helpful. Also, if you have any other places I could post this question please let me know. Thanks in advance for any suggestions anyone gives.

Which Professional Sax Should I Invest In?

The local music store here, Groth Music (Also the biggest music store in Minnesota) has three different professional tenor sax models for sale, at least that’s what shows on their website. If they have more, I’ll look into it. For now, I just want to know if there are opinions.

The options are:

Selmer Paris Professional Model 54JU Tenor Saxophone

Selmer Paris Professional Model 84 Tenor Saxophone

Yamaha YTS-82ZII Custom Z Tenor Saxophone

Btw, I’m leaning towards the Custom Z because I want one with black lacquer so I can look cool at school :P

GuitarTuna

This is a nice app. I use it to tune my guitar. It’s very helpful as accurate. This app also has options to tune other instruments like a violin. And for I think $10, you can get these little fun guitar chord related games, that help teach you the guitar.

Overall, great app. And I highly recommend it.

Introduce Yourself! :)

Does anyone else just want to have one master discussion for introductions? No? Just me? Welp.

I think, so that we keep things organized, we should have a central discussion for introductions! That way we can have everyone's pronouns and other important info all in one location for easy reference later on. :) So if anyone has yet to introduce themselves in the group, or if you would like to reintroduce yourself, do it here! I'll start in the comments below. :D

Soooo, as our lovely group admins have said, PLEASE make sure to include your pronouns, so that we don't misgender you! ^^ You're also welcome to share your sexual/romantic orientation, gender, and other more specific labels if you feel comfortable doing so, but don't feel pressured into doing so if you do not wish to. I would also love to hear about how you came across music/MuseScore/this group, if you want to share anything more about yourself, and feel free to share a random fact about yourself or anything, really! xD

Cookies vs cookie dough

1. Cookies have more textural variety. You can have crunchy cookies. Soft cookies. A mixture between the cookies. The dough? Depending on which kind, they're pretty similar with hardly any variety. They're just either goopy or squishy. But with cookies, you can achieve the dough effect by not cooking it as much, getting the best of both worlds.
2. It's better for ones with chocolate chips. Melted chocolate inside of a cookie? It's hard to best that.
3. Dipping cookies in milk is amazing. Dipping cookie dough in milk is a sin. Nothing more to be said.
4. Health risks of salmonella. While I've never gotten or knew someone who got salmonella from cookie dough, and it's probably not easy to, you're more likely to get that from cookie do than baked cookies.
What are your opinions?
