Bear with me, this is going to get soppy, lol.
For me, this has been an emotional and deeply spiritual four days of family time and lots of church stuffs (including the poignant and beautiful (Holy Thursday), emotionally wrenching and beautiful (Good Friday) and joyful and beautiful (Easter vigil)).
And then add two David shows into the mix and I am (to quote Numb) done, done, done… in a good way.
I have found it so special, in fact, that I wanted to send out a special, HUGE thank you to all the fans who share the show with those of us who aren’t able to be there.
The tweeters, IGers, videographers, bloggers, Periscopers… and Abrra 🙂 … WE LOOOOOVE YOU!!!! These fans don’t have to do this. They could very quietly and anonymously enjoy the show on their own. They owe us nothing. But I suspect they’ve been at home, wishing they could be at a show and do feel our pain.
Plus, I suspect that overwhelming love of humanity that comes over you at a David show prompts them to want to share that incredible experience with the whole world.
I know we all appreciate that so much and I hope these lovely peeps all feel that love. Just like I hope David feels our love and support and it buoys him, not overwhelms him.
And I’m fine with peeps sharing audio only or faraway snippets or blurry shots or whatever… in fact, I totally understand David wanting to see people’s faces enjoying the show rather than a sea of heads staring at phones… and I also totally understand people not wanting to shove a camera in David’s face for 90 minutes… I’m greedy but not that greedy, lol.
Also a shout-out to the screamers and clappers and cheerers and dancers who channel all of our collective excitement and rejoicing into those concert halls to send David the message that YES! YOU ARE WHERE YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO BE AND WE ARE HERE TO CHEER YOU ON, GOD WILLING!!!!
In other words, thank you. Merci. Gracias. Grazie. All the thank yous.
Because I love p.s.’s.
Must-read story that goes with this picture! (I know I always say that but it is! thanks, @rhiminee for the heads up!)

Yesterday was an amazing Easter Sunday. A group of friends and I took part in an Easter music celebration in Tennessee and it was great singing songs for the occasion commemorating Christ's resurrection. My faith in Christ plays a huge part of who I am and what I do. I do my best to follow Him and I feel that light and peace that He gives, that the world never could give. It fills my soul. I hope y'all had a great Easter! ——————————— "And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay." – Matthew 28:5-6 #Jesus #Christ #HeIsrisen #lightoftheworld #Easter #happybelatedeaster
