A few things....

THEY LIKE ME , THEY REALLY LIKE ME..... Isn't if funny that no matter how old we get , when you realize that people really like you and think alot of you , or at least think enough of you to award you with a "Lovey Award" , it still makes us smile soooooo big!! Well I received this award again and this time from my sweet friends Denise and Daleea. I love these ladies , both of them are so inspirational and amazing...I am the one who is forever grateful for their friendship. Thank you so much.



A few months ago Frank surprised Astrud and I with tickets to the play "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang" and it was this past thursday and it was GREAT!!!! The car really flew!!! This is one of my favorite movies and it was so much fun to see it on stage. Thank you Frank, you sweetie pie!!!

Then he also surprised me a few weeks later with Chris Tomlin tickets!!!! Chris Tomlin is absolutely MY FAVORITE!!! I took my friend Katybug and Jenny and I have to tell you that it was a beautiful thing to be in the Municipal Auditorium with 5000 other people that was worshiping the same person you were....Our Heavenly Father. Chris Tomlins music just does something for me, the holy spirit is so present when I listen to his music. All three of us are going thru somewhat difficult seasons of our lives, Katy just lost her Daddy and is having some other troubles, Jenny and her husband are having some financial worries, and me...well my Mom is just slipping further and further away every minute. So even if it was for 2 hours or so we got to escape our troubles and heartaches and got to totally be ONE with God . I do know this...no matter what troubles we have , HE is always there carrying us thru these times. I love HIM so much and am ever so thankful for the way he loves me and knows me. There are times in my day that I know I can actually feel his hands on my shoulders or his arms around me. Oh how sweet it is.

What awesome surprises!! I love Christian concerts and I've seen (and love) Chris Tomlin. I have to agree, it makes me one huge goosebump to think of thousands of people all in one place praising and worshipping the King of Kings! I could just imagine how His heart must feel. He is so worthy of that and so much more!

Thank you for sharing!

Wasn'it GREAT!!! Mark and I went and I know the Holy Spirit was present. And Yes I am still recovering because I was singing sooo loud. I just loved how every one that was there were singing and to hear all those voices praising and worshiping all at once was just TOO COOL! I LOVED IT!!!

Heather said...

Oh Kristy - you encourager you! SO deserving of awards, but more importantly than that, our Heavenly Father isn't near as concerned with others liking you as He is. And I assure you, sweet girl, He is completely awestruck by you...He knew you before youw ere born and knit you together himself! WOW! Chris Tomlin completely moves me, I know it is the Lord moving through him but boy, does he open himself up for that!

Glad to see things are going well - I check now, thinking hmmm will this be the week we see your daughter??? Praying for you, Kristy, praying:)

Love,
Heather

Oh! I love Chris Tomlin.

Isn't it awesome to go deep into worship, why don't we do it more hey? I guess we can do it in other ways that we don't usually recognise.

Saying a prayer for your Mom.
