Mercy Mercy Me...

Last night Drew and I pretended to be teenagers again.

Here's how it all started...a few years ago we had tickets to Godstock in Comstock Nebraska. One of the performers was MercyMe. We absolutely loved them and wanted to see them again in concert. So, I began a massive search for a concert near us.

But...alas...MercyMe does not come to our area very often.

Why? Probably because our state has more bovine than humans. Not. Even. Kidding. Well, since bovine do not PAY to go to concerts, there isn't much money to be made here, I guess. So, I checked Denver. There was a concert during a perfect time for us to go. We could get a GREAT DEAL on a hotel. (And I love, love, love!) school....perfect. However, the cost of the tickets were $120 EACH!


So...on we searched. I have been looking for over 2 years for tickets at a decent price within reasonable driving distance. No dice.

Then, oh then, we hit the jackpot in August. I was driving in the downtown area of Kearney and saw a sign for a MERCYME concert coming Sept. 30! WHAT! We checked into it and the tickets were $25 for seats in row 14. I KNOW! HOW COOL IS THAT.

So, we went and it was awesome! You can go here to listen to the songs on their new album that will be released Nov. 20. The song that really touched me is "Finally Home." It actually made me cry in public.

Then, we rocked our faces off.

Then...we drove home and were sound asleep by 9:30pm.

See. I told you we were just like teenagers last night.
