We had a wonderful weekend up in Noblesville, Indiana; singing at the Praise & Harmony workshop with Keith Lancaster, praise singers from Madison and the kind family at Green-Valley. My sister, Monda, flew in from Arkansas and I from Atlanta, meeting up at the Indianapolis airport where Eve D. picked us up and played out hostess for the weekend, with Rex, as host, of course.
This is my return visit as I went up for last years workshop as well, and could tell that the singing has received emphasis and practice, it showed. They'd had the new songs from the Glorious God project for a couple weeks, which hasn't released yet, and had been practicing them already. We sang some older songs along with the new ones and it was a great weekend of praising God with the sweet harmony of our lips and powerful message of His Word.
We enjoyed the Saturday night concert with Vocal Union and reuniting with our long time friends in that group as well. It was particularly meaningful to my friend, JoAn D. who is presently in a battle with pancreatic cancer. She is enjoying some victories as the chemo has cut the cancer numbers in half and she is planning a Tulsa Workshop excursion. Our prayer is that the numbers continue to improve and she encounters a full recovery at the hand of God. Her doctor used the word miracle to describe her progress this week. We praise God for that.
My flight on Delta made it back to Atlanta with only a small delay Sunday. Monda on the other hand got to enjoy another night in Noblesville as the American Flights were cancelled. We managed to find her a Delta flight out on Monday morning and safe travel on home to Little Rock. A wonderful weekend enjoyed by all, with just a bump or two along the way, to keep us guessing:)
