I have told you before how we like to get our praise on, soul style, at the house.
These is one of our favorite new soul praise tunes and here is the other!
I have always dreamed of having a black baby. In sharing this desire with someone they said, "Oh girl, you married the WRONG man."
I know I didn't. Then, I looked outside our window one day and saw something like this..
and was reminded that God can work miracles in many different ways. :)
So the other night, my wonderful mother offered to babysit Isaac so we could go on a much overdue date. Joe had seen that there was a taping for this reality show, "How Sweet the Sound" that was taking place at the Toyota Center (where the Rockets play). Basically, it was like Reality TV meets B.E.T. meets Christian American Idol. We couldn't get tickets though because it was all sold out. bummer.
We decided to venture to downtown Houston anyways and see what we could find...
When we drove up to the stadium an hour and a half before it started, there were thousands of people waiting for the doors to open. There wasn't a white person in the crowd....oh, I was at home!
I walked up to the box office and asked her about tickets. She told me emphatically that it was all sold out. I conjured up all the soul I could muster and asked, "Even for a SISTER!?!"
She gave me "the look," laughed and then opened up two seats especially for us. They were up close and personal. They had 8 choirs that made it to the finals in Houston and then they were traveling to 10 other cities, then going to have a finale in Detroit. They had three judges: Cece Winans, Marvin Sapp, and James Fortune...
We even got to see Israel Houghton (a personal favorite worship leader of mine) who was sitting on the front row. We had so much fun; it definitely ranked up there in our top 3 dates of all time.
