You've been so patient...

A few weeks ago, I posted that I had a really exciting possibility coming up. You've waited so patiently...well, the 2 of you who actually read this

Here's the city where I went...recognize it??


It's Nashville...the best I could do from the car...not bad, though, huh?

Here's the hotel I splurged on...and it's been FABULOUS!



The bed...so very comfy...the pillows...perfect...free wifi...and a TV with cable! I haven't had cable TV in a long time...maybe, if I am lucky, I can catch a Little House rerun while I get ready in the morning!

So, a big reason I came was to see this phenomenal group...
Recognize them? It's the group Selah. The concert was such a blessing. These guys are so gifted! Allan the piano player - rocks a keyboard (he sings pretty well, too). Amy and Todd - phenomenally amazing singers - definately God given gifts! I was lucky enough to be on the second row...it helped that I went WAY early. I felt a little like a nerd, but I really like them and I wanted to be up close. After the concert, I even got to talk to them. I tried to get a picture of the three of them up close after the concert, but once the crowd died down, they had also scattered. But the concert was not so much a concert as it was worship! Each of their songs...I felt as if they just ushered me to the foot of the cross. I was so blessed. If you haven't heard them...google them...buy their CD's...you won't be disappointed!

But there's more...I got to meet someone else. Someone I admire...someone who inspires me...someone who I've really wanted to meet since I first "met" her in early 2007.


Here's another hint of sorts...during the concert, Todd (that's the guy with the shiny head) had his daughters come up on stage. They have 4 daughters...three on earth and one in Heaven. These two were brave enough to come up front...the youngest was a bit shy so she didn't come up front.


Todd (shiny head guy) and one of the most phenomenal singers I've ever heard, is the husband of the fabulous woman I met. The sweet girls...2 of their daughters...who also have a quite a gift of song, by the way...

So this is the secret!


I got to meet my dear bloggy friend, Angie! (I don't have trouble remembering her name!) A couple of years ago, I found her blog...and I was hooked. She is a gifted writer...her writing is incredibly heartfelt and I admire that she is not afraid to share the ups and downs of being a wife, a momma, and a daughter of the KING! I have blogged about her and her family before and posted a link or two...but if you've not read her blog, "Bring the Rain," read it! She's also writing a book...that I will certainly blog more about when it is published next year!

WOW! What a night! Now you know what I have been up to for the past few weeks! Thanks for playing along with me! Thanks Angie and Selah for blessing my heart tonight...and so many more times the past few years! God is using you to do miraculous things in the lives of people all across the globe!

Hmm. Up to four commenters now. Must mean more people read your blog than you think - hee hee.

Glad you had fun and got to meet Angie. She's pretty special (at least as much as I can tell from her blog). Praying for ya and the adoption!

It's about time--I don't like waiting:) (ok, that's kind of a joke considering we have both been waiting for our girls for over 2.5 year!)

Sounds like a wonderful time--glad you had a wonderful evening of music and got to meet Angie.

I've read her blog before myself--I enjoyed it. And, I was moved by the story of the little girl they lost. Is that what her book is going to be about?
