There has been so much happenin in the past few weeks...and I just haven't been able to catch up. One wonderful surprise for me was that Royce arranged for me to attend a Youth Conference being held in Chatanooga, TN the weekend before Thanksgiving. While I attend LOTS of youth conferences...this one was different because Weston's band was leading worship. I got to be the official photographer...and it was a great learning experience in shooting in that kind of environment. His worship band...Five Smooth Stones had won a national worship leading contest...and were invited to lead worship at this conference. The band is 5 guys....ages 15-16 and for being as young as they are -- I think they are pretty terrific...of course, I am biased because Weston is the drummer. However, the response to them at the conference was awesome...so fortunately -- someone other than myself think they are good.
Royce and I had T-shirts made up for them to sell (a total surprise to them) with the logo you see above. They sold out the 12 dozen shirts we brought within just a very short time. I wish you could have seen these boys handling just this little bit of "fame." The girls were all giggly -- wanting their pictures taken with them...buying shirts. And while the guys tried to act "cool," you could totally tell that they were blown away with the response. I am sure I will have some fun scrapbooking to do with these pics. Right now I am in a major "reorganization of my space" so I can keep track of what I have and where it is -- so I haven't been doing any actual scrapping lately -- am itching to get started again though -- asap. Just wanted to share a couple of pics from the concert....will share the lo's when I get them done.
Yes...I am as proud as I can be. I claim him as my son...and while none of my genetics are in him...my whole heart belongs to him -- so I love seeing him have these wonderful experiences...and am so proud that he is using his talents for the Lord.
Who in your life are you proud of? I would love to know.
Love you...have a great week.
