Cell Phones and God’s Will


Well, it’s Sunday morning. I planned to write this blog last night, but I ended up falling asleep really fast after having such an exciting night of fellowship with some college buddies, family, and church friends.

Anazao and I played at a really neat coffeehouse called Common Grounds Cafe over in Colfax, NC last night. The entire day just seemed to smile. I got a call from one of my best friends, Des (who lives about 5 hours away), saying “Mom and I are in Greensboro, btw. I don’t know what you are doing today….” So of course, I immediately invited them to the show. I had reconnected with Scott Johnson and Aaron and Sara Moore from GWU as well, and they came. So between all of them and my brother and sister-in-law, it was a GWU reunion.  My Dr. Plate song (Pulse) was a hit with them cuz they were in those classes with me.  🙂

It’s so amazing how God works things out. First, Desiree and her mom Shoshanna where going to have to head on before the concert actually started…and they did. However within an hour Randy (owner of the cafe) interrupts, having found Des’s cell phone in the parking lot. Hmm. Yep. SO! They came back and stayed to listen, Shoshanna remarking “Andi, it was God’s will that we hear you.” I love these people. I pray they arrived home safely…they drove through the night to get home.

Also, this might be confusing for those who don’t go to Abbotts Creek Missionary Baptist or Christ Wesleyan, but humor me. What a small world! So my college buddy Aaron Moore (was in MOST of my classes at GWU) was previously a youth/worship pastor at Abbotts Creek. Scott Reid at the time was the youth pastor at Christ Wesleyan (where I attend.) THEN Scott became the youth pastor at Abbotts Creek. So last night here is Aaron and Sara coming to see me and here walks in people they know that attended Abbotts Creek, including Scott Reid’s wife and kids. LOL. The connections last night were just so awesome.

So we really got a chance to catch up and the music went brilliantly. The guys rocked as always and I got through my set 100% by memory! I gotta be honest, it kinda unnerved me at first, but I gave it to Jesus, and He sang me through it. Again, God is good and He knows the way when we don’t see it.

Well, I gotta get ready for church. I’m gonna try to make it to breakfast for once. LOL.


While he v-blogs


I’m at Joe and Tater’s house.  I’ve had a crazy weekend.  I just had an amazing meal at Applebees with Tater and Jessica.  Sometimes it’s just great to get out and relax.  While I blog, Joe v-blogs.  Today Jessica and I took a 2 hour nap!  DO you know how long it has been since I have napped?  I have NO idea.  But it was AMAZING. 

My brother and sister-in-law started blogs this week.  I’m hopeful that at least Brittany will update regularly.  It gets “adult lonely” when every day you are surrounded by kid talk.  Don’t mistake me, kids are a joy and blessing…but sometimes it’s so helpful to have adult conversation during the day to balance it all.   Anyhow, check out her blog. It is linked to my right under her name “Brittany Reich”.  She’s already posted a couple, including some great pics. 

There’s been a lot of hype about the new movie “The Golden Compass.”  My dad and I discussed it by phone on the way to Applebees tonight.  Having read several blogs and reviews, I have formed my own personal stand on it.  But I’m interested to see what happens with it all.   Will it fizzle out to nothing like The Da Vinci Code?  Or will it succeed the supposed mission to athienize (I’m pretty sure I made up that word) the minds of our youth? 

At any rate, I’m looking forward to receiving my CD in the mail this week.  As well as my cell phone’s rebate.  But I think the rebate will take another month?  I’m not sure.  I’m sure this is boring my few readers.  Anyhow, I think Joe is wrapping up his video editing.  Josh has been wanting me to start a monthly v-blog myself, so we’ll see if that happens.  Maybe in January when I start booking places to play.
