God's sense of humor?

The Iona Community, one of the most well-known ecumenical communities in the world, is having huge celebrations for Holy Week and Easter. These include lots and lots of music, lots of choirs and sings, and no piano or other instruments on Friday and Saturday, so all singing is a cappella.
And the musician (yes, that's me) has completely lost her voice, for only the second time in her life.
IT'S NOT FAIR!!
But speaking of Lent as a time of stripping away, especially Good Friday and the Saturday... I throw up my hands, take stock of who I am and what makes my life tick, and realize that I can do essentially nothing but wait...
Sometimes God seems to like object lessons.

Maybe this time God just wants you to listen.

Man/woman plans, God laughs. Have a very blessed Easter. God loves you, singing or silent....

I say we get God back somehow.... like put shoe blackener in her toothpaste on Easter morning or stick peeps in her going-to-church shoes. Scheming is the best part of being divinely created-Game's on, God.

...and then I realized while I am plotting for Easter morning hijinks at 8pm Fairbanks time, it's already easter morning there. Foiled again. You win this one, God, but next time....
