Day 1583 – I’m So Thankful For This Freedom In America…

I was driving to church today and listening to Shine FM. It’s a local Christian/inspirational music station. I’ve been trying to listen to more worship music recently…it has made a big difference in my attitude.

Anyways, the DJ was talking to a caller about the song Cinderella by Steven Curtis Chapman. Now, I was gearing up for it because the song always makes me weep. (Look into the story behind it.) I actually did change the station when the song came on…

So, the DJ is chatting with the caller and at the end of the conversation, the DJ asks how she can pray for the caller. The caller asked that this station would be on the air for her grand kids to hear one day. Just like that, the DJ prays…on AIR!

It hit me that this is something I take for granted FAR too often…the freedom of religion. I can blog about, post on Facebook, Tweet like crazy about how much I love Christ. No one knocks down my door to arrest me.

Needless to say, I got a really good cry in….even though I did change the station to NOT hear the Cinderella song!

What freedom do you take for granted?


Day 1406 – An AWESOME Vendor – DJ And Limo – Baltimore Maryland

I had the privilege of working with THE best limo driver at the Kristofco Wedding! Barry was kind, professional and knew just what to ask at each location.

The highlight for me was when we (the bride and I) were about to leave for the first look. He asked her, “ok, do you have your something old, new, borrowed and blue?” When we got to borrowed, she said, “Yes! My jewelery…..MY JEWELERY!” The bride quickly put on her jewelry and we left for the church. While the getting ready location was only minutes away from the church, it saved us time. He played body guard to the room where the bride was hiding in at the church. He also carried the bride’s dress while we walked down a slightly muddy hill for pictures.

When I got his card, I knew the business name, but it didn’t hit me until later that I had worked with them before! Lasting Impressions was the DJ for the McLean Wedding! If you get the super deluxe DJ package, it includes entertainment! And the McLean reception didn’t disappoint….with a wedding party donned in YMCA props…to the limbo…to the bride’s dad dressing up like Elvis!

Super fun company to work with!!

Here’s a shot of Barry and I!
