Last Sunday afternoon found me in my
Mom blessed Warren and I with tickets to see
The Gaither Vocal Band
We always get a chuckle out of the fact that we are
the youngest fans when we go to any of these
events. But other than the fact that I worry about their fan
base over the next 10 years I don't mind being younger
than everyone around me.
This was my first time to see this group in person.
Of course, we've watched the Gaither Homecoming Videos
many times and we saw Mark Lowry a couple of years
ago when he visited Lancaster.
Bill Gaither must be pretty persuasive to gather this
kind of talent into a group.
Every one of these men could be out on their own.
They have the talent and following to be solo artists.
It is totally special that they work together and offer
up such praise blended with humor.
I mean that you actually have to laugh out loud
or you will hurt yourself.
Mark Lowry gave an outstanding message.
I won't try to tell you what he said because
I would butcher
it for sure.
We enjoyed it soooo much!!
It has been a very busy week.
This weekend won't be any better for all of that
but it will be good.
Kicked off a fundraiser for a church group
headed to Haiti to do mission work yesterday with a new
group and have a couple coming today to discuss
a fundraiser for their upcoming mission trip
Yesterday I spent a good part of the day with five
very wonderful children.
Their Mom is going through a very hard time
right now as her Dad has terminal cancer.
The kids and I laughed and laughed as I just
about stepped on a snake.
The oldest boy said in a very serious voice,
"I just had to chuckle."
I think he thought I might be upset if he laughed
at me...but instead we just laughed together.
I'm sure it did look and sound funny to see me
jump and scream.
It was just a garter snake and very easily
identifiable so I was never afraid,
I enjoyed seeing their new fluffy yellow chicks.
You know how we used to enjoy getting ours
each Spring. But now we just let our chickens
reproduce naturally since we don't need lots and lots
The kids were too smart to fall for my suggestion that
picking all of the dandelions in the field would be a great
activity and challenge.
I was sure that they would want to do that one!
It's been a while since I've spent
quality time with the younger set
and it was good!
We ended the day by prepping English Muffin
Pizzas to be ready for dinner when their Dad got home.
Molly was a big help.
She put the sauce on the muffins and then added
pepperoni, green peppers, cheese and cooked onions.
Well, in theory they were yummy.
I bugged out of there to get home and cook
quesadillas for my own gang.
Hope you are well.
