I am in ‘countdown’ mode right now. I am counting down 2 things. One countdown is the two weeks from tomorrow until we get the keys for Amanda’s apartment. That means moving day is coming! The other countdown is the seventeen days until the Celebration concert that I will be singing in. For the next two weeks I shall keep you informed of the activities of the approaching moving day. I also thought I’d daily introduce you to the songs that are being sung at the concert. If you are attending the concert, it will help you become familiar with what you will hear. If you can’t attend, I believe the blog will still be interesting to you!
Look how short my hair is! And it looks RED! Yup – it’s an old photo but we all look pretty much the same!
Amanda’s new apartment is not even two miles away. It is a cute little one bedroom apartment. She will have staffing to help her and keep her company during the day. It will be nice to drop by whenever we want. We get the keys on Thursday the 15th. However, I have surgery that morning on the tumor on my hand! So, we will probably take stuff over that afternoon, but move her gradually through-out the weekend.
And it won’t be a dull weekend! Sunday the 18th is the Concert!
Do you know how many names there are for God? There are whole books written about some of the names: Adonai, El Shadday, Abba, and Yahweh. It is fascinating to study. Some of the names that originate back from biblical times were even too sacred to say out loud! Have you wondered why there are so many names? I believe it is because God is so many different things to all of us. He is Love, Life, Savior, Peace, Comforter, and the Alpha and Omega. Just to name a few. In the first song of the concert, we sing about God being “Worthy” and “the Lamb” and “Holy” as well as “Almighty” and “King of kings.” It is a marvelous opening song titled: Revelation Song based on Revelation 5:12 In a loud voice they sang: “Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise!”
Now I have one personal quirky thing about this song. I’ve blogged about it before. If you remember, be sure to comment on it, below! If you don’t already know, I’m not telling!
So – not much packing going on yet for Amanda. But there is a lot of singing going on around here. Thirteen songs to memorize!
