No words...

Of course I'll come up with some, but there really are no words to describe how I'm feeling today. A few that come to mind are exhausted, sore, crampy and a plethora of physical words I could use, but at the same time I am finding myself on the verge of tears all day. Not because I'm down or sad, but because last night the Lord spoke to me in such a POWERFUL way thru the mouths of about 100 kids under the age of 12.

The concert was amazing. I was kinda the "stage manager" if you will, so there was a lot of running, placing, checking and the like going on, but let me just tell you that thru it all the Lord touched my heart with the pure, sweet worship of those kids. Seeing them singing about a Father who calls them His own and lifting up their hands in worship, not just because that was their cue, but because it was coming out of their hearts.....well, I just about couldn't contain myself. Of course we had our wigglers, our stare-ers, our deer-in-the-headlight-ers (how's that grammar workin' for ya?) but land sakes even THEY were just the cutest.

It was the first time all three of my babies had been on the platform together and it was almost more than this momma's heart could stand. I found myself checkin' out as manager and just bein' a happy, proud momma. In fact, I was supposed to go onstage at the end and almost missed my cue because I was busy jumping up and down and screaming my fool head off! GREAT for the old vocal chords by the way! hahaha Then, I went onstage barefoot because I had kicked off my shoes in the running! hahaha Oh well. Thank God our church isn't stuffy! (or at least I don't feel that way)

Anyway, I hope to have some pics this week - still trying to download to my dinosaur computer from my dinosaur camera, but we'll see. I pray that you have a great day and I plan to do as little as possible to try and recoup!

One of my kids said today..."Mrs. Staples , you missed a good show here last Sunday night!" I thought that was way too cute considering she was in it.....
