I am SO excited. I do not know how I am going to make it 24 more days.
A lot of you have seen the video that JM and I did with our local Christian radio station, telling our story and how the station really supported us through our S and R. The song we used was "Praise You in This Storm" by Casting Crowns. That was playing the morning after we told the kids he was moving out (the first time) and me and the boys just bawled through the whole song. I called the station and ended up developing an amazing friendship with the morning (at the time) host that ended up extending to the whole staff.
Soooo... Casting Crowns is coming to our city in a few weeks. And today, I happened to call my friend who is now the afternoon drive time host, just to chat. While we were talking, the program director came in and told me he had just gotten an email from his very good friend, who happens to be CC's manager. The band saw our video and wants to meet us after the concert. They may even show the video and have us come on stage... not sure how that's all going to work.
I cannot believe this! I'm so excited, obviously to be able to meet the members of one of Christian music's greatest bands, but also to be able to reach more people with our story and God's grace.
There will be pictures later, I promise.
