Put Your Hands Together Now

James and I and the kids just returned late last night from 3 days at Kings-Fest in Richmond, Virginia. This is 3 days of all day riding the rides at Kings Dominion Amusement Park and 3 nights of Christian rock concerts. So basically, you throw your brains around all day and destroy your hearing in the evening. It was great. We worshiped with Casting Crowns...danced with Toby Mack and rocked out with The Newsboys.
James and I have been taking our kids to Christian rock festivals for years. In the 80's at Creation we saw Mylon LeFevere, Amy Grant, Petra and Carmen. The 90's big name was D.C. Talk.
I don't jump as much as I did 20 years ago. I'd probably break something.
But I LOVE the music.

At the very beginning of our marriage Dan and I started listening to Christian music. Back then (1979) it was Larry Norman and Randy Stonehill. We never stopped listening. I love the praise music that is out now from Passion worship to Third Day. Dan likes much heavier stuff than I do. We were commenting the other day that it is like listening to mini sermons throughout the day. (I'll have to blog about this some time) It is such a big part of our lives.

Glad you had fun.

I'm really wanting to hit Creation NW this's just expensive for 6 of us...(you know!) so it might not happen. :) But I have time, right? You've got grandkids and you're still rockin out.
