Benefit concert

This little guy's name is Easton.
He is 6 years old and was recently diagnosed with Lukemia.
How I found out about him was through a co-worker who is friends with Easton's dad.
Easton also just started his treatments, and even though his family has insurance, we all know that along with medical needs, there are also additional costs that insurances don't often cover.
So, to help raise money for Easton's cancer treatment, The Salt Rock is putting on a benefit concert on Saturday, May 10th, from 6-9pm
There will be live music featuring, yours truly with Just a Vapor and Annelise Lecheminant from Tennessee, as well as a comedy performance from Off the Wall Comedy Group (those who usually perform at the Terrace Playhouse).
The cost will be $10 a person, or $20 for families, no limit
They are taking cash and checks, and all the money raised will be going straight back to Easton's treatment needs.
Please be praying for this cute little guy, and if you have nothing else to do on that night, come join us in supporting the Salt Rock to help raise money for Easton's Lukemia treatment.

Sometimes, things just don't turn out the way you want them to.
But it definitely won't keep me from trying.

Salt Rock Singing

Here are some pictures of performing at the Salt Rock last Saturday.
Thanks to our friend Briana for being a faithful fan and coming to take pictures for us at our shows!

Jeremy and Blake performed a few songs they each had written, and I have to say that the harmonies they made were amazing. Their voices worked really well together.

Micah brought a few percussion tools, like a Cahone, to bust out some beats for the acoustic evening. I really liked the sound it brought, very mellow.

Nate brought this cool sounding guitar and added some lead lines during a few of Blake and Jeremy's songs as well as our worship set at the end. Even though the mic wasn't turned up very loud, every once in a while I could hear a faint little note that made me smile as we sang praises and worshipped, it was so cool.

Chas has a few instrumental songs that he played in between sets. He is such a talented guitar player, and it shows in how well he plays even those high notes with his little pinky.

My God is mighty to save.

That is one of my favorite lines of a Hillsong United worhsip song right now.
During our show last Saturday we had a time of worship at the end where Blake, Chas, me, Jeremy, Micah, and Nate all played together.
We have been singing this song at church for the past couple of weeks and the words really strike my heart as I think about where I am at, where others around me are, and where our lives are headed.
As I was singing this Mighty to Save song with Blake, I was reminded of how much God has blessed me with, including the ability to get up in front of people and bare my soul of how much I love him with song. It is also a constant reminder that without Him, without Jesus, and without mercy, there is no way, NO way, I would be doing what I am doing right now.
I would gladly be a backup singer, singing harmony for a lead singer, someone who has way more voice than I do. Ask Mel, she knows that I always used to make her sing melody so that I could sing back up harmony when we sang on praise team together.

God has a sense of humor, I will give him that. And I love him for it.

"Everyone needs compassion, the kindness of a savior."
