December 13 was a delightful day for us all. Having loaded in and set up at FBC Kettering the previous day, we were able to sleep in that morning and then go complete some much-needed Christmas shopping. That night we were further blessed to perform for the good folks of Dayton, OH. Thanks for a great visit guys!
December 14 found us once again in Dayton, OH, this time completing AMB work at Caribou Coffee at the mall there. We enjoyed some fellowship together, working as we burned some of our favorite Christmas mixes and sipped our favorite drinks and taking breaks by walking across the street to the bookstore to peruse the aisles.
Mid-afternoon we left for Fort Wayne, Indiana. We read, listened to Christmas music, conversed with one another, and, at long length, found our destination, complete with a warm and inviting Panera Bread for supper, and a comfy bed to rest our heads upon.
We had a great time with everyone at Packard Music Hall in Warren, OH tonight! The concert was a gift to the community, hosted by 10 different churches in the area. Walmart gift cards were given out to the needy and many lives were touched. It was a blessing to play for you all!
Well, tomorrow takes us to Dayton, OH, where we’ll be playing at FBC Kettering on Tuesday. We’re looking forward to it! The drive’s a relatively short one, so hopefully we’ll have the chance to fit in some Christmas shopping. Gotta squeeze it in where you can on the road! God has been very, very good to us throughout this trip. Protecting us along every drive and blessing us with such kind, hospitable hosts. We are truly thankful and looking forward with great anticipation for the 7 concerts between now and Christmas!! So, with that, I bid you a very good night!
This morning began with a 5 AM departure for Franklin, NC, a beautiful little town tucked away in the rolling hills of the Smoky Mountains. We were due to perform at the Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts. We had played there once before, right after Annie & Scott were married, and now we were blessed to be back, right after Alex & Berklee were married.
We had a delicious lunch at the theater’s own picturesque restaurant, the Boiler Room. The restaurant was graced with the prettiest Christmas tree to date, all decorated in scarlet ribbons and ornaments. This was only the foretaste of the beautiful decor to be seen in the theater itself. A towering tree in the foyer, adorned with turquoise and gold, a theater wreathed in lights and ribbons and holly and trees, a shining grand piano in the midst of it all, and scarlet velvet curtains joined to create a most beautiful atmosphere.
The concert that night was blessed and beautiful with all the Christmas surroundings, the full house, and the lovely beloved music. We were so glad to be able to play for you all and meet all you Smoky Mountain natives!
Our next concert is Warren, OH on the 11th in the Packard Music Hall at 6:00 PM. Hope to see ya’ll out there!
This morning began with a 4 AM wakeup call, a 5 hour drive, and an arrival to lunch at Raleigh First Assembly. The sun was shining for the first time in a few days, so we very much enjoyed the light!
After a bit of necessity shopping and then resting at the hotel, we returned to the church for soundcheck, rehearsal, a delicious supper, and then the long awaited-for concert. The stage was decorated with real trees, silvery white, reminding us of the stark beauty of midwinter.
We played for a packed house, full of friends from all the many FASAs that we have held in Raleigh, NC. It was such a blessing to see all of you! We are surrounded by such sweet and loving people. We love you all!
Tomorrow we play in Franklin, NC at the Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts. Hope to see ya’ll out there!
