OK – so I’m really tired today, but it is a good tired. Know what I mean?!

Yesterday, me, my siesta friend Sharron, and our 2 hubbies set out after Sunday School on a road trip. Sharron and I were so excited that we could hardly contain ourselves. Lots of “whoo hoo whoo hoo hoo’s” were shared each time we saw each other Sunday morning before we left.

So, I know you can’t wait to hear where our road trip took us. (Singing) . . . “On the road again, I just can’t wait to get on the road again! The life I love is making music with my friends, and I can’t wait to get on the road again!”

I had to take that little detour in song. You know me. I like me a good song to go with the situation.

Well . . . we were actually going to make music with our very special friend, Travis Cottrell, as he recorded a live CD/DVD at FBC Woodstock, Georgia. It was awesome! When we talked this morning, Sharron described it as a magical evening! And that it was! Travis, the praise team, the FBC Woodstock choir, Beth Moore – everyone was really pumped and the music and worship was incredible! The place was packed and Travis said he was afraid only a few people would come!!! Puleeassee!!!

We got to meet up with our Southern Siesta friends and visit with them a few minutes before the concert. Then, I had the privilege of meeting and getting my picture made with BooMama!!! How awesome is that?!

After the concert, we made the 3 ½ hour trip back home, arriving around 11:15 p.m. and guess what?! I couldn’t sleep. Not one teeny tiny itty bitty bit! I think the excitement was just spilling over, and no matter how hard I tried, sleep wouldn’t come. So I’m a little bit tired today. But it really is a good tired. AND I am facilitating a Bible study tonight! Lucky participants!!!!

So after Bible study, Gramster plans to go directly home, put on pj’s, then night night, sleep tight, don’t let the bed bugs bite!

It was a good tired and so worth the loss of sleep! Whooo hoooooo what a night! God is so good to have let us go. He knows when we need a shot in the spiritual arm! Praise Him!
