Hey, friends. I was going to sit down and write a blog this morning. And then I talked myself out of it...telling myself I didn't have much to say, and that I have too many sentences to put together already this week. I should save my brain cells for other things...like watching Everybody Loves Raymond reruns. Except I don't think that requires brain cells. Anyway...then I got a message from a friend in California, who simply said, "I am quite annoyed that you won't blog." Well, that was all fine and good. But what I realized is...I am quite annoyed that I won't blog, too. So, in order to not annoy my friends AND myself, I am blogging.
Enjoy these brain cells flying out into the world. I have so few left...I hate to see them go.
It is a busy very busy week. We are spending much of our time getting ready for Deeper Still Atlanta. My praise team and I are ACTUALLY REHEARSING. They are coming over on Wednesday to rehearse. I love it when they come over. They are a fun and funny group of peeps.
Speaking of Deeper Still, you need to go over to the LifeWay women's ministry blog and read a sweet post by my friend Paige. Paige is the director of women's events at LifeWay. She and I have been friends for more than 20 years. We met doing community theater when I was just a freshman in high school, and she was a freshman in college. We have been much like brother and sister ever since. Check out the picture she posted of us doing the musical Peter Pan in 1988. Ouch.
A also wrote a post for the Deeper Still blog that should be up sometime today. Check it out.
OK. That's enough about women's blogs. I feel the need to talk about football and Nascar now. Or at least talk about my mad Wii skillz.
I won't. Instead, I will post some pictures from our weekend. We were in Boone. My niece Jennifer got married. It was a beautiful wedding. And they had the most beautiful flower girl I have ever seen.
Angela and the boys at the rehearsal. Levi...smiling for another picture? Not so much.
This is my brother, David. My kids LOVE their Uncle David.
One last thing for today...my record label has been working on a surprise for you Deeper still peeps this weekend. There will be a "gift" from me in the bookstore. Look for it. Thumpety thump thump (it's not a "full revealing"...but it's a sneak peak).
OK...one other last thing...the band and I will be in concert this sunday night at First Baptist Cartersville. If you are in the Cartersville / Atlanta area, please come join us! We are singing a couple of songs in the a.m. service...and then a full concert at 6 p.m.
Who's coming to Deeper Still? See you there.
