Concert Fun & Giveaway Winners Announced

Friday evening we drove three hours to a concert featuring JJ Heller, Josh Wilson, and Jason Gray. It was a fantastic experience and well worth it, even though we didn’t arrive back home until after 2 A.M.

JJ’s little girl, Lucy, was there and joined her up on stage to help sing one of the songs. They were completely adorable together. After the concert I talked with Lucy (who is six or seven) about books which was really fun. Talking with her reminded me of when I get to travel around with my adopted parents and converse with the people who have come to the concert. My favorite song of JJ’s is What Love Really Means and I have listened to it many times over the years.

Josh Wilson is a great guitar player. I have long been inspired and challenged by his song, I Refuse. My favorite song of his during the concert though was That Was Then. I don’t know if I’ve heard it before, but it’s really catchy and has a great message. I’m actually listening to it as I blog this morning  and it’s making me smile again.

My favorite was Jason Gray. His song It’s Good to be Alive meant a lot to me back when I was really sick and didn’t always feel like life was a gift. The words would remind me that yes, indeed, I had so much to be thankful for and I needed to live life instead of just exist. The song inspired me to live of beautiful life, even during my pain. Over the years I’ve also found it quite easy (amusingly so) to relate to his song That’s How I Ended Up Here

They’re just a little over halfway done with their tour, so, if you can make it to one of the concerts you really should. The tickets were only $12 which is pretty amazing.

Announcement: Yay! I’m ready to announce the winners to Noveltea’s Birthday Celebration Giveaway! Just in case someone doesn’t know how this works, I’ll quickly explain. Rafflecopter, which is the giveaway hosting site I use, has a button that says “Add a random winner” and when I click it, it spits out a name and adds it to the widget. So, the first winner gets the first prize, the second winner gets the second prize, etc…

    +1 on Josh Wilson's “That Was Then,” and especially on the music video. (Which I hadn't seen yet – thanks for the link!) Question: why can't more music videos feature comprehensible storylines that actually, like, go with the song?! Especially liked the ending, as I'm guessing you probably did too. 😉

    Yes, the ending was pretty cool. 🙂 And yeah, I've often times wondered what is actually supposed to be happening in music videos. I kinda thought it was just me who didn't get it though. 🙂
