I love how God will gives us little presents sometimes.
My birthday fell near the end of our vacation (Friday). While we celebrated with dinner and a movie, I really didn’t expect anything big. But God planned a little surprise. I found out on Wednesday that Travis Cottrell would be giving a concert on Friday night. It was a free, outdoor event sponsored by a local church. We met my brother-in-law and nephew there. Needless to say, it was a great evening. Travis and his team are excellent musicians, but more than that, they love the Lord and it shines through. We worshipped that night, out on the grass, even in the heat and humidity. Afterwards, I connected with Travis for a few minutes. I know, I forgot to take a picture of the two of us for the blog. That’s a big blogging “no-no.” But I’m still fairly new at this. So, I’ll just describe it for you. Two metro-worship leaders were there. One had no hair gel because it was his vacation. The other had been robbed of his by heat, humidity, and big stage lights. It was a fairly troubling scene. That’s what it would have looked like.
Anyway, it was great to worship and visit with him for a few minutes after the concert. Travis, thank you for a great night of worship. You are welcome to come back to MeadowBrook anytime bud!
The unapproved pic!
It thrilled my heart to see Kate lifting her hands in praise. Just before she returned to her Chick-fil-a bag.

I maybe thinking a little selfishly, but I believe that concert was just for me on my birthday. Like the loving Father He is, God gives us little surprises and gifts. This night was just one of many. Thank you, Lord.
P.S. Travis is regular reader of GodSeekerBlog. I am honored.
