Welcome...I'm delighted that you chose to visit! I started this blog in March 2010 and I am so happy that I did. It has made me more aware of the many ways that God is blessing my life. I have made some special friends who bless,teach,encourage,and entertain me! My desire is to be an encouragement to you. I hope you will tarry for a while and that you will come back to visit often.

an evening with Chris Tomlin and friends

Friday night, my daughter and I made our way to Atlanta...
Gwinett, to be more specific...to see and hear one of our
favorite Christian recording artist, Chris Tomlin, and one
of our favorite speakers, Louie Giglio.
This makes our third time attending one of their concerts
and it is always a wonderful night of worship and fun.

The arena was full and Chris was happy to be playing
to the "home crowd"...he lives in Atlanta. He and Louie are
staff members at Passion City Church.
The words to the songs are always on the big screen 
(although I don't think most folks need them!)
so the crowd sings along.
Several times, Chris stepped back and just listened to 
those thousands of voices praising God.
I couldn't help but think what a thrill that must be for him.
He is man who has committed his life to leading people
into worship and to see the fruit of his labors manifested...
wow! I know that must bless his heart and encourage his soul!
Louie's message is always powerful.
He uses humor to get your attention and then...pow!
he grabs you with this great truth from scripture.
They are both passionate about their Lord and their ministry.

On the last song, an upbeat praise song, they threw out beach balls!
That was quite a surprise!
It was the last stop on the tour and I think
 they just wanted to celebrate!

With a baby due in a few weeks, I was grateful for
the opportunity to have an adventure with my sweet girl.
It will be a while before we can have this kind of
"girl's night" again.
 As she said..."it was a treat!"...for both of us!


  1. It's been way too long since I saw Chris Tomlin (and Louie Giglio) in concert ... but it was such a blessing ... a foretaste of heaven perhaps? ;-)

  2. i can tell by those big smiles you had a wonderful time...you are blessed to have a daughter to share good times with.

  3. What a nice way to spend time with your daughter sweet Debbie. Hugs and blessings!

  4. Oh that is a treat! So glad the two of you could experience that together!

  5. How nice to have a evening. Now where did I miss that, you have a new grand baby coming too? My newest will be in a couple of weeks. I had no idea how I missed that wonderful announcement. Congratulations!!!
