Josh in August. I'm looking forward to a nice weekend in Atlanta to see Josh outside this time. This will be the only time I see him this go around. I hope its enchanting with the summer heat and fireflies....and beautiful music!

In November I'm traveling to Israel with my family to see the Holy Land. To actually see where Jesus walked and lived will be incredible. To see the places that are talked about in the Bible and see where prophecy will be fulfilled is going to be a red letter day for me. I'm especially excited to see the Garden of Gethsemane and the Jordan River.

I haven't logged onto Josh in awhile. Checking in quickly to see if I'm missing anything is mostly what I do. My life is full of other fun stuff these days.

It's been forever!

Having a lazy Sunday today on Facebook and saw the fabulous new picture of Josh along with his new album title. It prompted me to renew my membership. Funny how just a picture and the promise of new music can do that to a person.

Life has been pretty good this last year. Time marching right along. My life has been filled with work, boy scouts, teenage situations, and a few health problems for my husband. But over all God has blessed us more that we could ever hope for or deserve.

I'm looking forward to more beautiful Josh music along with maybe attending a concert somewhere....and meeting up with some old friends! <3

Joshed in Charleston

on November 6, 2011 - 6:14pm

What a fun day I had last Tuesday, November 1st. After feeling like I would be unable to see Josh this tour, I managed to work it out when I saw he would be in Charleston. So I splurged for a good ticket....which meant I had to travel alone.
So alone I traveled. The drive through the mountains of North Carolina at sunrise with Josh singing in the background was breathtaking. My mom talked me through the last part of North Carolina, then into South Carolina. It was a fairly easy drive.
I was able to check into my hotel early, so I rested up, then headed for the meet and greet dinner we had before the show. There I met so many wonderful fans. It was just like family. We acted like we knew each other for years when we had only just met.

Newness of Life

on March 18, 2011 - 10:06pm

What a week...watching all the devastation in Japan. It's sort of weird going about life as usual here. I'm fussing at someone that doesn't merge properly while the other side of the world is being swept away by water. Perspective smack in the face.

We've had spring break all this week, so I took some time off with the kids. And trust me, it's been ALL about the kids. Trying to entertain 2 different ages 5 years apart is challenging.

I chuckled because when I was a kid and if we even HAD a spring break, it was just another week at our house. "Go outside and play honey." That's what we heard. It wasn't organize something with friends every day of the week so we could constantly be stimulated and entertained.

Can you believe this?

It almost seems crazy to admit this on Josh's web sight, but guess what? I'm not going to see him in concert this time. That's right. It's just not working out for me.

I planned our family vacation in June and that's exactly when he's going to be coming anywhere near me. We will both be in South Carolina at the same time, just at two opposite ends!

My heart is slightly pained over it. I just know how good he is live. He's incredible.

My year is full of my kids. I'm taking the back burner this time.

My daughter is going to take a trip to Israel with my parents in November. I agreed to pay for part of it.
