Acts of Love

I am so excited.  Friday, when I got home from school Frank was waiting under the carport for me....and after I got out of the car he asked me what I would give to see Third Day in concert.  I love Third Day....but before I could respond he then sweetened the pot and asked me....what about seeing Third Day, Michael W. Smith, and TobyMac all together.  He knew he had me.  I love all three of them....and I would love to see them in concert...but I looked at him and depended on the price.  He was grinning the whole time....then he added....what it you could see Max Lucado too...I told him, "I think I would have died and gone to heaven."  He then told me that on October 10th....that is exactly what I am going to be doing.....with him.  I squealed loudly....I am going to be having dinner with a group while Max Lucado speaks about his new book, have VIP backstage passes, and reserved seats to see the concert!  OH WOW!  Frank has been my rock this has been a tough year for me and October 9th is the first anniversary of my father's death.  I cannot think of a better way to celebrate my father going to be with Jesus than with Max, Mac, TobyMac and Michael W. Smith....with a little sweet Frank tossed in on the side.  I have a great husband....and Lord...who made all this happen....just for me.  When I finally settled down I realized that I have not been alone all year....God was right there beside me to get me over the rough spots.  When we went to see my mom later...I hugged her a little longer and harder....I am fortunate....and life is good!  Happy Saturday!  Thanks baby for making this happen!
