and if our God is for us.....

This is my 200th post.

Last night my daddy and I went to the Chris Tomlin concert at Houston's First Baptist Church. It was absolutely,positvely, hands down, the BEST concert I have EVER been to in my life. We were 4 rows from the front, amazing seats. Chris Tomlin has been one of, if not, my favorite christian artist for many years now. He is also my dad's favorite so when I heard on KSBJ that he was coming, I HAD to get tickets. Well, they sold out. BUT, they added a second show and those sold out within 30 minutes. I sat at my computer at work @ 9:50am to ensure that at 10:00am I would snag 2 tickets for my daddy and I. My dad had never been to a christian concert before so he was excited but also had no idea what to expect. Let's just say I looked over several times at my dad with tears in his eyes, hands raised, praising the Lord. After the first song was sung by Chris, my dad turned to me with tears in his eyes and said " Thank you! This is absolutely amazing and I'm now addicted!" Of course, I got teary eyed and had to look away otherwise I would of been a crying mess ( I cry at MTV shows).

The concert was purely amazing. The worship that happened last night was unspeakable. It was one of the best nights I've had and I got to share that with my daddy. Several times during the night my dad would turn to me and touch my belly and say something cute about the baby. I got tickled every time he did that :) The concert started at 6:30 and ended at 10:00pm. I really thought Chris would only sing for about an hour. Oh no... he sang and sang and sang and sang. We were singing, dancing, raising our hands while praising the Lord which was such an awesome thing!

My dad said he is addicted and well, he isn't lying. We are going to the MercyMe concert in April. I just still can't believe how amazing last night was and how I got to worship like I did. I am so thankful for that daddy/daughter date. :)

I highly recommend that you go to one of his concerts, it will truly touch you in so many ways.

Oh. my. word. Chris Tomlin is awesome in concert. I won free tickets off the Christian radio station last year in the metroplex area.. when we used to live there. I've never called in before and thought, why not? And then I won. It was a great day. We love concerts and have been to tons - Mercy Me is amazing, too! Glad you had a fun night with your dad. This is a really long comment. Okay, bye!! :)
