I am truly blessed...

No, still no post on Luke. Weekend maybe? I had planned an evening in tonight to get some stuff done at home, watch some taped tv shows, read a bit, spend some quality quiet time by myself. As you might guess, that didn't happen. Instead I got a phone call from Billy saying he had an extra ticket to see David Crowder Band and Third Day and before I knew it I was headed in the car downtown to see the show. I definitely feel blessed that I have great friends who think to call me on a moments notice to do something very cool, I probably needed it more than anyone will know.

There are also other little blessings that fill my life constantly. One of the great things about being a missionary is that people are constantly offering to pick up a meal for me. I hate it, because I like to be self-sufficient and there is some sense of dignity and pride involved in being able to buy your own food, but I'm also gracious and accepting because I know that it is another way for people to show me that they care. Tomorrow night I get just that, good conversation and good food. I've already been forewarned that I don't get to pay for my food because the guy who I'm meeting is a member of my fan club. I love it. I seriously appreciate all of the hospitality I've been shown both here and from my home churches.

So the concert was great. I was definitely there as a fan of Crowder's, but Third Day was actually pretty decent. I had a phase where I really really enjoyed their music, and some of the songs just sort of resonated with my soul right now and reminded me why I'm here doing what I'm doing. I took some pictures and some video, and I'll post some pictures. They aren't great cause we were pretty far back and flash pictures don't tend to work in settings like that so I left it off. I'd post the video if I didn't fear the MPAA and their overbearing tendencies in regards to live music.

Regardless of what happened today, what happened yesterday or last week or what may happen tomorrow or next week, tonight I go to bed feeling loved, restored with hope, and really glad that my friends here are so great to me.

I'm ridiculously envious of your good fortune to see David Crowder Band. It sounds like it was a good show though, and I'm really glad you had a good time :-)

You are blessed and loved and you should go to bed feeling that you are every single night!

Ask your friend if there is room for another in the Laura fan club!
