One Thousand Gifts (con't)

"The trumpeters and singers joined in unison, as with one voice, to give praise and thanks to the LORD. Accompanied by trumpets, cymbals and other instruments, they raised their voices in praise to the LORD and sang: He is good; His love endures forever"
(2 Chronicles 5:13).

The lights grow dimmer.
The audience begins to cheer... and three incredibly talented musicians enter the auditorium.
I clap and cheer.
The day has finally arrived!
I smile from ear to ear.
Praises to God fill the room. His presence is oh so evident.
Tears are shed.
Laughter is heard.
Joy fills the hearts.
We worship together and praise His holy name!
"He is good and His love endures forever"

That was a fabulous concert! Thanks so much to the two of you for working so hard to get them here. Even people who attended only to support the school, ended up in love with Selah (and Jacob Moon). What a great night!
