Today we were in the Big MO. Lotsa fun mostly due to the fact that there was a swimming pool in the same building we played in. NEVER happened before. It was also due to the great crowd tonight, but mostly the pool. When you have an overactive 2 yr old, a pool in the summertime is exactly like an oasis halfway through a big boring desert where all you were doing was riding on a bus. In the "Don't complain about things" department, my ear monitors have finally busted, and I can only use one ear as opposed to a monitor in each ear that sounds so great.
At first, you would think a broken piece of equipment warrents some belly aching (which is what I did), but what I didn't realize that the absence of the monitor unplugged my ear to hear that the people of Poplar Bluff and the surrounding areas like to sing. A little cue for you guys for if you're singing loud enough is if we back off to hear you, and that happened quite a bit tonight. It rocks when you can hear everyone in one place worshipping together. It's pretty much a payoff for me. As we go to sleep tonight, we are gently rocked asleep to the wafting vapors of the chicken wings we had for bus food, we bid you adieu, sweet Missouri. Know that God has you even if you can feel His hands
