Weekend Adventure and Song of the Week

A few months ago Jones and I were riding in the pickup listening to Francesca Battistelli.  Between songs she reminded me that I had promised to take her to a concert someday and asked if I could check and see if Francesca was going to have any shows near us.  When we got back to the house we looked online and found out that she was going to be playing at SeaWorld with Bebo Norman, Chris August, and Newsboys.  We put it on the calendar and began making plans.
After 3 months of waiting, the day finally came.  We went to San Antonio on Friday, got a hotel room, swam in their indoor pool, ate pizza, and watched River Monsters on cable.  We got to SeaWorld early so we would be sure to get a wristband that would be our ticket into the concerts.  We ran with the mob at 10:00 when they opened the floodgates after the playing of  The Star Spangled Banner.  It was a great day of Shamu, roller coasters, junk food, and good music.  I'm sure Leslie will post pictures soon.
Did you know that we have a youtube channel, too?   Check it out for SeaWorld concert footage and assorted family hyjinks.

Halfway through Bebo's set something went wrong with the sound system. His vocals were the only thing coming through the main speakers, but he didn't know it. He was still hearing his guitar through his in-ear monitors. He kept singing, the crowd was singing with him, the moment was a magical time of worship. Fittingly, the song was "I Have Nothing Without You". I decided to use it for the song of the week.  Let it be your prayer as you go through this week.
