We are in Destin, FL for a concert tonight. I got up early and went and got a surprise for my team this morning. When I got back to the hotel, I plopped myself in the hall of our hotel floor, and texted them this message:

Hot Krispy Kremes in the hall.

They have never moved to sound check this swiftly.

Krispy Kreme is ministry.

    Heck…I almost jumped in my car and drove to Destin myself for hot Krispy Kremes!! 🙂

    Have fun. That church does a lot of outdoor concerts and we have been to several when on vacation. We stay not too far from there at Destiny East when we go there.

    Amen. Hope you get to enjoy the beach some too.

    Looking forward to Louisville!

    hilarious!! Hope the event is blessed! ah, btw, sooooo there with the last post. Hang in there!

  4. Deidre on July 25, 2008 at 7:48 am

    Absolutely! Krispy Kreme IS ministry. I have no doubt you’ll all sing great now 🙂

  5. Karen on July 25, 2008 at 7:52 am

    Oh yes it is…. now tell California that. They can’t keep a Krispy Kreme open out here. What’s up with that?

  6. The Kaylor Kastle on July 25, 2008 at 7:56 am

    Amen!!! Our Krispy Kreme closed for nearly a year here in Phoenix and much to our delight, has just recently reopened.

  7. Amber on July 25, 2008 at 8:02 am

    I’d eat some donuts for Jesus…and when I say “some” I mean 23!

  8. connorcolesmom on July 25, 2008 at 9:23 am

    You are in Destin!
    We were there last week
    It is so beautiful

    BTW: if you get a chance go eat at a place called Stinky’s – it is so good!!

    Have a wonderful, blessed time this evening. Try to get some time on the beach, but beware the sea-weed… it was awful last week. Wish we had delayed our vacation a week.

  10. Anonymous on July 25, 2008 at 9:24 am

    I KNOW you packed some Barley Max to wash down (and help digest) those donuts,RIGHT?

  11. Holly on July 25, 2008 at 9:51 am

    Now that’s just plain mean. Sophie posted these earlier this week…now you…and in DESTIN, too.

    So I repeat my friend Heather’s mantra: Thou shalt not covet. Thou shalt not covet!

    Please enjoy the beach for me! I’m praying for you all.
    With blessings,

  12. Jenn on July 25, 2008 at 10:10 am

    God is all in Krispy Kreme. Amen, Amen, and Amen. 🙂

  13. mizbitz on July 25, 2008 at 10:16 am

    Hmmm…. Bet sound check and warm-ups sounded a little like MMMMfla Mfla Mla la mmm (chew, swallow) la la laaaaaa…. LOL

    Wish we had a Krispy Kreme here. Hate to drive all the way into Nashvegas to get one!

    Have fun tonight!

  14. KMac on July 25, 2008 at 10:32 am

    was that last “anonymous” post from your Angela??? 🙂

  15. Darlene R. on July 25, 2008 at 2:12 pm

    It was not even nice that you put a picture of those on your blog! Not nice at all, Miesta!!

    Man, that apple I just ate just isn’t doing the trick all of the sudden.

    sigh — I want a doughnut. 😉

  16. Patty on July 25, 2008 at 2:32 pm

    Love when the Hot Light is on. Nothing like a hot Krispy Kreme.

    Have a great time in Destin and blessings on your concert.

    See you all in 26 days at the Siesta Fiesta!!!!


  17. Profbaugh on July 25, 2008 at 2:42 pm

    Ah Man, Travis!! Now I want Krispy Kremes.


  18. Amy Beth @ Ministry So Fabulous! on July 25, 2008 at 2:54 pm

    The hot light and I have an unhealthy relationship. Seriously.

  19. Susan on July 25, 2008 at 3:43 pm

    Hmmm….I’m thinking that will work on the darlings come the second of September…first day back at school!

  20. twinkle on July 25, 2008 at 4:44 pm

    That’s a SWEET way to start the day. I love them HOT! Or cold.

  21. Anonymous on July 25, 2008 at 6:17 pm

    I pray at the Pearly Gates Jesus will say, “Go and enjoy choice food and sweet drinks…” (Neh 8:10) and right there will be a Krispy Kreme! Now THAT’S Heaven!

  22. Adam Owens on July 25, 2008 at 6:50 pm

    I love the fact that im the only dude to post a comment on your blog sometimes..LOL

    But seriously Krispy Kreme is the way to go. I remember a couple of friend and I would drive down to the local store at the crack of dawn to get fresh warm donuts. hmmmm so stinkin good.

  23. Heather on July 25, 2008 at 8:08 pm

    Amen and Amen! Those are manna from heaven, for sure! I am wishing I had one right now!

  24. Fran on July 25, 2008 at 8:10 pm

    Shoot…did we miss the concert?? My sis-in-law is down there. She would love to come!!

    Hope the weather is awesome, sand is unbelievably beautiful, and the food is the best you’ve had in a long time! My favorite place on earth.

    Krispy Kreme is ministry!

    Blessings and hope the crew is good!

  25. Loree Arrington on July 25, 2008 at 9:19 pm

    THANK YOU for your honest, heartfelt worship service tonight! I almost stayed home because we had a bad storm in Ft Walton, and I really didn't feel up to a 'concert' but I'm so glad I didn't. I needed so desperately to be in the presence of God – and I so found Him on the lawn in Destin, FL! Wasn't it awesome He graced us with His presence! God bless you with a safe trip to your next destination & Thank you for coming to Destin, FL!!

  26. Jon Tyner on July 26, 2008 at 6:51 am

    Krispy Kreme AND Destin, FL… Thank you Jesus! I’m on my way.

  27. ocean mommy on July 26, 2008 at 5:49 pm

    I work for food too. 🙂

    Praying you have an awesome time of worship tonight! Praying for good weather.


  28. Sought-Out on July 27, 2008 at 7:21 pm

    Went to the concert. Blessed. Blogged. Posted pictures. Getting ready for Friday night and Saturday.
    Thanks for coming!

    Next time you're in Destin…while I KNOW Krispy Kreme is delicious…there is a mom & pop donut shop (and, I can't remember the name of it…I think it's the Donut Hole–look at my blog and see if you can read the box top in that picture with my kids eating them up…my eyes aren't that good) out on Hwy. 98. It's SOOOO good that last year, at our church retreat in Panama City, one of our elders drove ALL THE WAY from PCBeach to get donuts from this particular place. We had to wait an hour for those puppies, but they were SO good! I think we're 12 weeks and counting from our next retreat…thanks for the great reminder about the donuts! Guess I just have to hit the gym harder over the next few weeks to make sure I can confidently enjoy the donut mininistry! By the way, I actually DID take my Barley Max afterwards last year! 🙂

  30. Christi New on July 28, 2008 at 7:55 am

    Thank you Lord for “Hot Donuts Now”! SOOOO GOOD!

  31. eally on July 28, 2008 at 10:03 am

    We were there at your concert in Destin…drove over from Pensacola! Had a blast!! You (and the other singers) are blessed with amazing voices. We loved the concert!! Thank you so much for an awesome show!

  32. Debbie Williams on July 28, 2008 at 2:49 pm

    My three grandchildren and I were in
    Gatlinburg last year and we stopped at a Krispy Kreme and got those heavenly warm donuts – I handed three
    back to those precious grandchildren and within one second all three of them had demolished in one bite their donut. All I heard was a lot of um’s
    and ah’s and yum yums as they were demolished – and then of course, I hear “Can we have another one?” Of course, they all got one more.
