It's about that time again, where I let all you good people know how the road is treating us and I can sum it up in one word...pretty good. And thanks for asking. We stopped in at The Church at Pinnacle Point. It is always good to visit a church were almost everything is absolutely slammin. Any place I can find a playground for my 2 year old is great, but they had 2 and one was indoors and spongy where you can fall and not hurt yourself (dad included). So if you are in the area, and are looking for a good childrens program, this is it. I pretty much spent most of the day out there until soundcheck. Things are different now traveling with my kids. I just hang out with them all day. Shout outs go to Josh (the worship pastor) and Josh (the youth pastor), all the worship staff that helped us out today, and Pastor Floyd for coming and seeing us, and letting us play in your church. The concert went really well, from my end. All the Arkansas peeps definately came to worship.
Hector and I have a running competition to see which side can get the most energy. My side definately won. Also, to maybe clear up some things, in case it was confusing you-if you came through the line tonight or any night lately, I didn't talk much, because my throat is gone. Also, Melodee doesn't make it out because of her arthritis, she usually hurts enough for two people by the end of the night, so she's not up for meeting people at that point. As I mentioned my voice, it wasn't so bad until I started the band intros. Then it left, and I basically screamed for a minute and a half. And somehow (unlike other nights) I was really feeling it on the guitar solos tonight. My favorite moment had to be on "People Prayed", Mark was punctuating a lyric by waving his hand, and unbeknownst to him, Megan was right behind him, and had to, what I like to call "speed limbo" under his flying appendage. That set all of Stage Right (ie Hector, Chris, Melodee) into hilarity, but luckily, they pulled it together before the end of the song. I really felt the Spirit moving during the invitation, and if you decided to follow Jesus tonight, just know that I prayed for you.
Speaking of prayer, we were also told that the church was praying for the concert before we even got there, and that always tells me that something is going to happen. Lastly, if you're on Twitter, you can follow any of us by looking at the blogs, and checking out the panels on the right side and clicking on the chaps or ladies you'd like to follow. If you don't Twitter, or have no idea what I'm talking about, that's ok. I just want to share Mark's Bible encouragement today came from Acts 27:31-32. Read that whole story, but Mark's take was the lifeboats were "Plan B". And God calls us to not have any lifeboats, to live without nets, to trust Him alone. See ya in the morning
