The Tie that Binds

About 7 years ago I came close to accepting a job at Provident (Zomba) as a song plugger. Truth be known, I just wanted to work with Marty W. He was VP of Publishing. Since then we've stayed connected through prayer and email. Today we had coffee at Fido (the coolest coffee shop ever). I was struck with God's presence in our meeting. True brotherhood. I left feeling so blessed by that friendship.

Tonight Jeff Berry and his kids came over to watch American Idol with us. It's another reminder that friendship is one of God's most perfect gifts. Jeff and I have known each other our whole lives. Now he and Anna and their lovely family live in Nashville. Some days I still think it's too good to be true.

In about two days we will leave for Fresno. We will go out to lead worship and sing, but again, truth be known...it's a family reunion. I am already anticipating the fellowship. I can't wait!

By the way...my job at Gary Musick Productions is going well. Everyone there is so nice and patient as I am learning the ropes. Today I worked all day on the American Heart Association's "Heart Gala 2008". It will be a black tie event at Nashville's Schermerhorn Symphony Center in a couple of weeks. Until then, Gary is doing events in Canada and then Dallas. We're holding down the fort for ya, Gary! Hurry back!

Okay so I know you need an off-site (like in Amarillo, huh?) assistant. I also want to live like a Rock Star!

I love that you sound happy!

I hope that work continues to go well.
Have a blast with ZOE!

have a great time in CA! I am not too jealous...it is only 10 degrees as I am writing this and I only have to work the whole weekend.....can you tell I am being sarcastic?! I know Josh is looking forward to spending time with you, I hope the weekend is a blessing!

Good luck with the conference this weekend! We are freezing in Canada - looking forward to seeing everyone in Dallas this week! I'm glad you're feeling more confident with things at GMC - you'll be knocking it out of the park before you know it!
