I lived in B'ham five years before moving to south Georgia. I miss the big city.

I invite you to visit my blog and to study the Bible with me.

WOW. are they gonna sing all that in one standing?
i thought our six songs were hard.
in France, how many songs are in each set on stage? just 3? i think that will be so much better, so we won't be so tired half-way into it!
today was good.
i think it's the sun.
BYE!

One of my former students is in the MSM program at Perkins and sings with the Meadows Chorale. They're performing in Memphis on their tour as well. She's really excited about the program.
