The Rascal Flatts concert was a ton of fun! I really enjoyed it and myself and my 3 friends that came along with me. I really do enjoy their music--a whole lot! They are great and so talented. However, a few things struck me while I was there, that kind of hit me out of nowhere.
It got me excited for heaven.
We were in a sold out arena with probably about 10,000 people *much a guesstimate* and it was pretty awesome when we all sang together. I thought how cool it will be to be in heaven and sing to our awesome God with all our hearts a song worthy of His praises and a song where I will know all the words, and so will everyone else, and it won't ever get old. We can sing and dance and get excited and worship and praise--Someone worthy of it! Someone I do adore and admire and worship. Not some silly boys from Oklahoma who are no doubt gifted in the area of music, but not worthy of worship, as MANY were inclined to do tonight. Can you imagine everyone in heaven singing? I got a small glimpse tonight of how that sounds and the adrenaline and the rush and the excitement. I know it won't measure anything like it, but I was glad that was where my heart and head were, even amid the chaos and very worldy things...
You know what else?
God won't need an encore to come back out, He'll never leave. It won't ever stop. The party will continue without ceasing...that is awesome. In the words of Rascal Flatts, "take me there"!
I did have fun. I had a blast. But my eyes and my heart are just okay with being set on things above...
Oh yea, we had dinner at my favorite restaurant in the world: Shogun. It was fantabulous! I love that place. I requested Paul (the best guy there) and we actually got him as our chef. That was a great start to a great evening.
Ps. People watching is very entertaining in a scene like that. I mean really...really...really entertaining :)
