“Precious moments, special people”

Now that I got my pity party out of the way, I’m really better.  It’s really not healthy bottling up anger.

Christmas with Amy Grant & Michael W. Smith

Last Friday, Lindsey and I went to Duluth, GA to see the joint Michael W. Smith and Amy Grant.  Jordan Smith joined them on stage for some performances. The show was sponsored by Operation Christmas Child.  Here’s a video of Michael W. Smith a few years ago:

I had a wonderful time. They were having a donation drive at the concert. You’d get an ornament with a $10 or more donation to OCC ornament. I liked how Amy said before intermission that they needed money to ship these boxes. Like shipping my boxes to Mali.

It was such a fun concert! I was so happy to hear Amy perform “Love Has Come.” I had joked on the drive up to Duluth while Amy’s version of “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year” that the concert should open with the Michael version of the song.  Low and behold, it was the opener as I joked!

The Georgia Symphony Orchestra performed as the musicians for backing. What a wonderful treat!

This was my first real introduction to Jordan Smith. I loved his rendition of “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch.” He also sang “O Holy Night” and the crowd took out their phones and held them like candles.  It was amazing how bright the arena got with the phones on.

All in all, a great night.
