The Stars Didn't Burn Down. But We Had Fun.

The Stars Didn't Burn Down. But We Had Fun.

Almost a month ago, my CD When The Stars Burn Down released. I took my church choir’s scheduled fall concert and used the music from the new project for a night of worship and thanksgiving. 

People, it was a fun time. My heart is still full from the fellowship I felt with the Lord, together with my church family (who I’m crazy about). We sang and shouted and laughed and shared and paused and prayed and confessed and proclaimed and cried and interceeded and thanked. Here are some pics from that night. 

Those faces you see…that’s my family. I love them.

    Thank you for such a beautiful time of worship! Your church family was so kind to this gal from out-of-town. Wonderful medicine for a weary soul.

    That song is a WINNER, btw. And so is that scrawny, little kid in your choir. OH WAIT–that’s just Bradford Carrington. Nevermind…

      Wow – new life goal. Be as funny as Daniel Semsen. I sang every measure that evening. Unfortunately our instrumentalist where missing one.

    Beautiful. I love choir and yours is beautiful. What a sweet picture of different generations joining in praise. Thanks for sharing.

    Loved seeing the pics of Angela singing too!

    Hi. I must be your newest fan. 🙂 I was captured by your music which I experienced at Beth Moore’s recent simulcast down here in Miami. Wow, that was great! I pre-purchased your album and have played it already a zillion times. Hehehe. Really though, it’s taken me right into the throne room of God which I am sure is your heart’s desire. I was wondering about the song Just As I Am. I know it’s an oldy but goodie, but did you rewrite and add the new lyrics? I was curious if that was your work or a song you just liked enough to put it on your album. The reason I ask it that I found it on Youtube at isbaptist. It’s you singing it, but it was posted June 2010.

    Thanks from a curious one.

      Just As I Am is one of my favorites! I was so happy when I found out it was on this CD. The YouTube song you found was probably the earlier recording from Run to the Cross (another great album!). I have the book for it because I tried to get my church to use it for Easter and it says the additional words and lyrics are David Moffit, Travis, and Sue C. Smith. 🙂
