Unredeemed

Had a great day today with Brad's family. We went to his sister Jaimie's church. Jaimie sings on the praise team there. She & her friend Joni have been singing together for years & years, but now go to different churches & don't get to sing together much anymore. Recently Jaimie went to Joni's church in St. Francisville to lead worship for some conference (if i remember right) & somehow Joni was later invited to come sing with Jaimie. Jaimie asked Brad to play for them, so they have practiced at our house a few times.

 Joni, Jaimie & Brad

Jaimie's church, Istrouma Baptist, has two services. Brad had to be there at 7:30 or so this morning. All i know is he had to leave by 7! Crazy! I was going to the second service, which starts at 10:45...thank goodness i didn't have to go with him at 7! Haha. Brad's mom & dad swung by & picked me up at 10. 

They sounded awesome! Joni led worship with Jaimie, and then after the worship service, Brad went up to play the piano for their song. The whole band played as well. It is an amazing song. I have to share the lyrics.

Unredeemed
by Selah

The cruelest world
The coldest heart
The deepest wound
The endless dark
The lonely ache
The burning tears
The bitter nights 
The wasted years

Life breaks & falls apart
But we know these are
Places where grace is soon to be so amazing
It may be unfulfilled
It may be unrestored
But when anything that's shattered is laid before the Lord 
Just watch & see
It will not be unredeemed.

For every choice that led to shame
and all the love that never came
for every vow that someone broke
And every lie that gave up hope
We live in the shadow of the fall
But the cross says these are all 
Places where grace is soon to be so amazing
It may be unfulfilled
It may be unrestored
But when anything that's shattered is laid before the Lord
Just watch & see
It will not be unredeemed.

Wow! I got chills just typing it. I love the lyrics to that song. Such an awesome message!

After the service, we all went to eat at Olive Garden. Me, Brad, Jaimie, Joni, my in-laws, plus three friends of Jaimie's from church: Shane, James & Micah. We had a good time & the food was delicious!

Joni & Jaimie - no, they did not plan their outfits! haha!

Brad & I both had a bad headache & were so tired!  We came home & took a nap until 5:30! Yikes! Hopefully we're still able to go to sleep tonight!! Can't believe we're back to work tomorrow. It's been a nice 4-day weekend. 

Tomorrow night is the first round of auditions for Crimes of the Heart. Eek! Think of me! :)
