That's What Friends Are For...

This has been an incredibly amazing week and because of my sweet friends, I have some of the most precious moments that will be forever etched in my mind and on my heart.

I began to lose my hair several days ago, which meant that this past weekend would be the first time that I would sing before my church family wearing a hat around my balding head. So our band and all the production team, backstage, on stage and in the house, wore hats. It was a weekend that I will never forget.

We sang "I Am Free" and all week long, as I studied my music, God continued to gently remind me that no matter my physical condition, my spirit is free. So if I could encourage you in anything it is this: we're free. Because of the cross, we're free. Nothing can chain my spirit and keep me from serving Jesus. I will until the day He calls me home. And when He does...I will run to Him.

For now, I am incredibly blessed and that's the only way I know how to articulate it. I am surrounded by the sweetest friendships a girl could ever hope to have and I just want you to know that I consider you to be an extravagant outpouring of God's grace in my life. And His timing couldn't be better!
