Such Restraint

Anyone remember this post? You know, the one where I basically told you I'd rather meet her than Justin Timberlake?

Well...



I guess I can cross that one off my list now.

Angie came to town with her husband, Todd, and the musical group he's in, Selah. Can I just tell you something? I am a Selah fanatic now. I mean, I always liked their music - we've played their cover of "God Bless The Broken Road" and we've played "Light of The Stable" around Christmas time. But this new record? The one that (plug) comes out August 25th (plug) and is titled "You Deliver Me" (plug) is going to blow you away. I have only heard a handful of the new songs - but its been enough to have me ready to sit at my computer on August 24th and click "refresh" every 10 seconds as midnight approaches so I can get the disc on Amazon.com the second it goes on sale. Whats that? You want to do that, too? You want to preorder it? Ok. Heres the link: Preorder.

The gal in the group is named Amy, and she has a powerhouse of a voice. Its the kind of voice we all pretend to have when we daydream about what we could sound like if we could really sing. Todd and Allen have powerful voices as well - and when all three sing at once in harmony, the music takes you to another place. I've never been to a Selah concert before - until this past week when they stopped by the radio station to play some new music for us. They set up on our conference room here at Spirit - and the room was packed. (Mostly because I invited a few extra people... you know who you are.)

Oh. And afterwards? I got to spend a little more time with Angie. Such a sacrifice, I know. See, they don't have a Nordstrom where Angie lives in Nashville, and she was really hoping to pick up a few things. So, I volunteered to take her. :-) Downtown we went, for a quick little perfume shopping spree. And friends? I showed SUCH restraint. Although everything inside my being wants to smell just like Angie, I did NOT purchase the same fragrance as her. Because that would just be over the line.

Sarah, I always love reading your blog posts. If I had to choose between Justin Timberlake or you, it would DEFINITELY be YOU! Someday, I WILL meet you- it's a goal. :)

Oh my word - a while back Angie had a song from the new CD up on the blog (for a quick time) and it was beautiful.

It wouldn't be so creepy now if you went and bought the fragrance (I mean at least she didn't see you doing it!)

A day I will NEVER forget! But you got to go shopping with her! Oh I am jealous now! I can't wait for the album. Matt likes Selah's version of "I have decided to follow Jesus" on the album sampler. I can't believe it.

Hi Sarah,

I've been a fan of your blog for awhile. I would read your Angie Smith endorsements, but after clicking a link to her blog, I never really read her story - I don't have children - and I thought that her life was too different from mine for her to witness to me.

But today, (bored at work - shh! Don't tell!) I took some time to read her blog, and came across her mourning and dancing video...where God really used her to witness to me about something I've been dealing with in my own life - and right there, I just said, "Thank you, Lord!"

So, Sarah, thank you for sharing her as well!! I love how open you are about you faith. It just speaks volumes~

Sincerely,

Therese
