Lately... The Bullet Points Edition
She needed a break from life to stop and laugh. I needed a friend to laugh with.
It worked out perfectly. She is/has been such a blessing in my life.
*We rode Chattanooga's National Landmark Incline up onto Lookout Mountain, taking in the Civil War history and beautiful fall colors. The Incline was no joke, super steep, and scary. :)
*It was worth the scary ride!
*Then we stopped by my church for our Trunk or Treat event. Most younger people just thought I was decked out in my favorite color... but older, cooler kids knew I was part of Jem's band, Jem and the Holograms. Remember that awesome show?!
*Best of all, Lauren and I got to see Needtobreathe here in town! It was the best concert I've ever been to. They're so stinkin talented! It was incredible! Everyone was so happy, and uh, those boys are lovely! Break me off a piece of that!
*Ben Rector was their opening act, and he was definitely a solid choice!
*Then THIS weekend, my friends Michael, Allison and I saw David Crowder in Atlanta.
*It's a bit bittersweet because of their upcoming retirement, but it also meant they played all their best songs! "All I Can Say" has always been my favorite Crowder song, but it's from their first album, one that's not even really sold in stores, and it was the song they closed with. It was stinkin awesome! I'd never heard it live. It made me miss my people back home.... Becca and I sang that song in church a LONG time ago, and I'll never forget being approached by a big tough marine, with tears streaming down his face, saying that song had spoken to his heart. It's a powerful song for anyone going through a tough time.
*The venue made me want to have black chandeliers all through my house. It was awesome!
