David Crowder Band is Way Cool

Does anyone else think he looks like Waldo from the "Where's Waldo" books but with a goatee?
Last night Jeff and I went to a youth concert. O.K., are you done laughing yet? I heard that the David Crowder Band was coming to Kalamazoo and the tickets were just ten bucks (definitely speaking my Dutch language) and so I went ahead and bought two tickets for our thirty something selves. It was quite simply, AMAZING! Their music is incredible, their energy boundless, and to see hundreds of hip young people lifting their arms and singing each song word for word to the Lord was INSPIRING. The only time I felt "old" at the concert was when a beach ball went bouncing off my head. =) To which my ever supportive husband said, "Come on old lady, be ready next time!" My favorite song ever is "Foreverandever." Everytime that song comes on when I'm running, my pace gets faster and faster and faster and faster. (If you know the song, you get it.) As the high schooler prayed before the concert, "we rocked our faces off for Jesus."

If you have time to check out another group, check out One Time Blind. This is a foursome that acts out hilarious, relevant, and thought-provoking dramas. All in all, great date night that included; Mom and Dad Guikema taking all three kids overnight (yipee), quick bite to eat, concert, & a quick trip to Meijers at midnight. Morning included waking up to an alarm, woodchipping our flower beds, going out for coffee and a scone, and meeting the family at Paige's soccer game. Great night, great day, great grandpa and grandma, great life!

I LOVE the David Crowder Band and am definitely jealous of your attendance. I saw him a couple summers ago at ALIVE and now own many of their CDs. He's sort of strange but knows how to PRAISE THE LORD!

Ditto on loving the DCB.
Sounds like an AWESOME night.

Sounds like a fab time, and the kiddos overnight at the grandparents!!--icing on the cake, lady!

Is woodchipping the flower beds the same as barking? Just curious? =)

In Michigan, unlike the strange West Coast, we reserve "barking" for dogs. =)

My hair sometimes looks like that in the morning.
