Hello everyone!
Here are the pictures from this past weekend's concerts and... can you believe it??..... there ON TIME!!!! Yahoo! :) .... I'm kind of in shock right now thinking..... "they've gotta end up getting deleted or something because I can't be just doing this, can I?" I mean, I'll look at it again and all of the pictures will be gone or somethig. lol But they HAVE to stay there because they're already saved and displayed!!!! :)
Er.... * ahem* .... sorry about that.... kind of one of my moments where I just can't hold things in. aheh :D

Anywho, I wanted to say that this weekend was one of the most BLESSED weekends ever and we had just a wonderful, wonderful time. God was so strongly present so that everyone could feel Him there.
We had a sweet time of fellowship after the hour performance saturday morning with several of our friends: the Warrior Poetes (a group playing there), the Zellners, the Harrises,and the Great Scott(also putting on a show there).
Then on Sunday we went to the church in Manchester where we had a sweet, sweet time of prayer and singing and the Pastor read from the Gospels (a very rare thing these days). What a nice time with God. Then the concert was so blessed beyond words. God's presence was there and the whole night was such a joy.
We met lot's of wonderful people there and got to spend time with the pastor and his wife, which was a pleasure indeed.
"Praise You Lord! Thank You for all of the things You accomplished this weekend and all of the things You are going to accomplish still! How amazing are Your ways and how sweet Your presence! Thank You Lord."

Praying that God blesses each one of you this week and that you seek to know Him more and to see His face!
Love in Christ, Miriam

welcome to Jesus Fest!!!
A time where everything is actually about Jesus ....so sweet and a lot
nicer than I could've imagined.
there was a gospel message every hour so that you
could bring friends and be sure that the word of God was shared

the grounds... or some of them :)

the main stage and tent
Alright. I am going to give you a step-by-step set
now in which the Great Scott meets
Rudy Floobloopper

Rudy has been called up to perform a magic trick during the
Great Scott show.Here they are showing the audience
that the tubes are indeed empty

Now then. In this trick we have slid the larger-than-your-average-size crayons into
the tubes going facing upward and are going to flip these
tubes upside down and right side up three times
coming out at the end with the crayons upside down.


let's TRY this again :)


Aha! they got it right :) Very nice

The Warrior Poetes, Doctor Scrubbles, and us :)

it was so neat having a sweet get-together with several new
friends at Jesus fest. Some we met in Pennsylavania
around Nov. and others are a band we went to
see a few months ago.... sweet bunch!

Hi Everyone!
I have only a minute and a half to write this but I HAD to get something up here! lol So I wanted to start by showing you a picture of the view from our back porch.... :) isn't it beautiful?

Anyway, I just wanted to let you all know that we'll be playing at Jesus fest tomorrow (sat 7th) at 11am and then we're going to Manchester to play at Manchester Church of the Nazarene on Sunday. Also, I wanted to share with you the verse of the week in case you feel like memorizing... I do encourage you toward it!
" For momentary, light affliction is producing for us an eternal weight of glory far beyond all comparison,
While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal."
~ 2Corinthians 4:17-18

Hope you have an awesome weekend and God bless you!
Your sister in Christ, Miriam
