SO proud of him.
Indulge me for a minute. And forgive me if it sounds too prideful. But I am SO proud of David. These last 6 months haven't been easy for him. Actually, the last year hasn't been easy. Losing a job, looking for a job, pregnant wife, 3 (now 4) kids constantly vying for his attention, selling a house, buying a house, starting a new job, having another baby, getting to know a new staff, working with a new choir and praise team and band, setting up all new relationships here, etc, etc. But boy has he excelled. He is truly doing what he loves. What he is gifted at (SO gifted at). And what he is passionate about. And so it is evident. To everyone. But I have seen him SO flourish and grow over these last 6 months. It is amazing. One of the other pastors told him yesterday "I knew you were an amazing musician when we hired you. I knew you'd do great with the praise team and the choir. But I had no idea what a wonderful pastor you'd be. You really are a minister first and a musician second - something not often found in music pastors." What a compliment! And SO true - I love you David and am SO proud of all that God is doing through you and with you!!
