I'm Giving Notice....

I recently demoed a song that I had written during our vacation a year or so ago.  I was walking through a dark night of the soul.  Anyway, the lyric from the song goes “Starting Today....I’m giving notice.....that I’m gonna live my life.....starting today.”  

Well, one of the ways I am letting my life imitate art is what took place this past Sunday night in the small town of Powell, TN.  I along with some really dear friends organized a fundraising concert to benefit Young Life Capernaum in Knoxville.  Capernaum is Young Life’s ministry to kids with disabilities.  It is a worthwhile cause indeed.  This is the first time I have played out in public in about three years.  I was really glad to share a little of my story through song and raise a little money in the process.  For those of you who attended, THANK YOU!!!!  For those who missed out, I’ll catch you next time.  

Probably the thing that made me the most glad was that the venue was this really  nice “barn”/gathering room of the parents of Justin Bailey.  I met Justin when he was a freshmen in high school at Powell back, I guess, about 10 years ago.  Now he is on staff with Young Life in Knoxville and developing the Capernaum ministry.  So, it was extra special that the event was hosted on his family’s property.  My beautiful wife and children were there cheering me on as well as my in-laws and a host of dear friends.  

Another mosaic to add to the portrait.......
