This week was an emotional an exciting week being able to watch the memorial service for Andre and then the broadcast of CCMUNITED 40 years in contemporary christian music. They were both so overwhelming the memories, the friends. I remember riding in Andre’s buss from California to New York for my wedding. Andre and the Archers were the first major tour groups Phil toured with. one of the first groups Phil toured with so to see his memorial service and have so many memories come flooding back. Then to watch CCMUNITED and see so many of our old friend and listen to music and think that was my life is just so surreal. It made me realize two things.
- First of all how very very blessed I have been in my life to know such amazing people and call them friends but, I never realized how fortunate I was and never for one second thought of it all being gone.
- Second, that I’m getting old as I looked at everyone on stage I couldn’t help but realize how many years have past in a flash. We are all getting older which I try to ignore but is obviously evident to everybody else in my family . Haha.
Open our eyes Lord! I don’t want to miss out on what’s right in front of me ever again.
