We have a forecast of more snow, rain, and ice, with temperatures never rising above freezing this weekend. As bad as we hate to do it, we’ve decided to cancel both the Friday and Saturday shows. We’re on the phone now, calling the folks who had planned to attend.
Things like this happen, and all we can do is trust that the Lord will bring lots of people next week to make up for the loss. Joey Hallelujah! God Loves America! is is such a fun show, with a truly important and ministering message. On top of that, according to last week’s audience, this may be the Ragtown Gospel Band’s best show yet!
I am especially proud of that, since four of the songs we’re doing are originals, and all of them are our unique arrangements. It is a pretty exciting time for the band, and we’re all loving doing these songs. I’m disappointed that we’re missing the opportunity to sing this weekend.
Please pray for beautiful weather and lots of people filling the seats after this weekend off. If you haven’t made your plans yet…next Friday night or Saturday afternoon would be a perfect time.
On another note, Robin and I received such a special blessing last Sunday at Bacon Heights Baptist Church in Lubbock. Chris Smith, who portrayed Jesus in our recent production of Bethlehem, sang “I Heard Jesus” during both morning services. That was the first time I had ever been in attendance when one of my songs was performed in a church service. Chris did such a beautiful job on the song, but more than that, everyone there was touched by that extraordinarily gifted young man’s gentle, loving heart. I was and am just so thankful and honored that the Lord allowed me to be the one to write that song. To see it presented so beautifully was just blessing upon blessing.
Everyone be safe driving, and as soon as it warms up….let’s go to Post!
