Redemption

What a time we had last night! My sister Pam (pictured above) pal Peg and myself ventured Downtown to the Fox Theater. We were so excited and had been counting down the days til the "Gaither & Friends" Concert and Wow! Did we have fun!!!
Of course anyone who knows me well...knows that I love Michael English! I rejoiced when I heard his testimony of redemption last year. That he had recommitted his life and talent to the Lord was not surprising. For When God has his hand on your life he never lets go...we do. Michael sounded great and is as handsome as ever!!!
The concert was just what this ol' gal needed...a girls night out. But not just any old night out...one spent praising God, laughing hysterically and being surrounded by a theater full of people who love the Lord. We heard ne'er a curse word, there wasn't a drop of alcohol sold and we didn't have to look away because someone was scantily attired...everyone was dressed in their finest.
Believe me, when I say that I am not being judgmental. But in a world where we as Christians, are mocked and subjected to so many things that we should find
repulsive...all was well with my soul at the end of the night. And for that I am thankful.

"It feels like redemption....raining down on me. It feels like forgiveness...has come to set me free. All my chains have been lifted...cause when the hands of love...touch a broken life...it feels like redemption."

Michael English from "The Prodigal Comes Home" CD.

Love to All!

Sounds like a wonderful evening, I love the Gaithers, they are timeless! That's a great picture of Pam, I expected to see you in her place!
Next time you go, if you have a spare seat in the car, give me a yell!

I will be sure to let you know next time! Believe me I wanted my picture taken! But people were shoving their way through (How rude) even though we had been waiting in line...so I passed.
Just seeing him was good enough!
This New Gaither Vocal Band is Awesome!

I may have an opportunity to go on a mini vacation in the fall with my Mom, Aunt, Sister and Cousin --off to a Gaither Festival weekend thing somewhere. Don't know yet if it will materialize...but I'm hoping so! I really enjoy their concerts - Only ever been to one and it's been over ten years since then!
