Memorable Moment

Our family had the wonderful opportunity to attend Sunday night's concert with Keith and Kristyn Getty as their world tour came to a close. They head back to Ireland today for a much needed break before they begin penning words and music of songs we hope to be singing later this year. I can't wait!

There's something to be said about standing in the middle of thousands of voices singing words to hymns like:

What Grace is Mine that He who dwells in endless light
Called through the night to find my distant soul
And from his scars poured mercy that would plead for me
That I might live and in his name be known

So I will go wherever He is calling me
I lose my life to find my life in Him
I give my all to gain the hope that never dies
I bow my heart, take up my cross and follow Him



In Christ Alone my hope is found,
He is my light, my strength, my song;
this Cornerstone, this solid Ground,
firm through the fiercest drought and storm.
What heights of love, what depths of peace,
when fears are stilled, when strivings cease!
My Comforter, my All in All,
here in the love of Christ I stand.


or a personal favorite

Still, my Soul be Still
And do not fear
Though winds of change may rage tomorrow
God is at your side
No longer dread
The fires of unexpected sorrow

God You are my God
And I will trust in You and not be shaken
Lord of peace renew
A steadfast spirit within me
To rest in You alone.

Caleb and Rachel share our love for Getty music. Both stood in line to personally meet them and thank them for their music. Rachel asked Kristyn and Keith to sign the inside cover of her Bible. I managed to get a couple pictures (although not great) as I squeezed my camera through moving people. It was a fun and exciting memorable moment!

Hebrews 12:1
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.

Happy Tuesday!

  1. No way!!! We were going to go, but decided against it! :( I'm glad you were able to go, though! :) :) We just got both of their CDs and I like them pretty well.
