Here's another update on the surgery. http://castingcrowns.com/blogs/melodee/surgery-update
I can relate to your painful experiences, having had back surgery earlier this year and maybe more down the road. And like you, I have found many good things to praise God for, which I might never have discovered otherwise. No matter the circumstances, there is ALWAYS a reason to praise our loving Father. I Thess. says to "Be cheerful no matter what, pray all the time; thank God no matter what happens". I truly thank Him for your music ministry. My favorite song is Blessed Redeemer and I can never get through it without choking up and crying. It's so powerful. God bless you all!
You have the voice of an angel - I hope you come back stronger than ever - I know you will!
I'm really sorry to hear about the problems with your back. You have an amazing voice, i love to play your songs on my guitar and sing them but i can't sing them as well as you, or do your cool harmonies!
Your violin is so awesome that my son Brandyn purchased an electric violin and is teaching himself how to play.
