I was given another opportunity to photograph a concert with WBGL this past Thursday. I was able to take photos of the Point of Grace/Mark Schultz Come Alive Tour at Tabernacle Baptist here in Decatur. It was truly an amazing night…and if they come to your town…go!!!
First up was Point of Grace. They sang so many songs that brought back lots of memories for me. There is one song in particular that just takes me back…The Great Divide. Me and my friend, Jaycie, had a whole routine to this song that we performed at the church camp talent night. Good times!!!
I saw Point of Grace in concert before…but it was like 13 years ago! The one thing I really remembered from that night was that they all had awesome shoes. Tonight, this was the first thing I noticed when they went on stage:
I just want to raid their shoe stash! All 3 of them had on fun shoes that night! 🙂 Here’s some other pics from their portion of the night:
Next up was Mark Schultz. I saw him in concert about 7 years ago & remembered just how funny & captivating he was. He has an incredible ability to share his heart & to tell stories. I found myself laughing, crying, and feeling so challenged during his concert. He shared about how he was adopted & how his wife is wanting to start the adoption process for their family. She is an OBGYN and spends time after her shift holding little babies with special needs. She told him that she wants to adopt little babies with special needs that probably won’t live longer than a year or two. She wants to give them the best birthday/Christmas ever & show them unconditional love…and just love on them until they enter the loving arms of our Savior. By this point…I had continual tears rolling down my cheeks. I am so grateful that I got to be Miles’ mommy for 3 months…and that I was able to show him just how much I loved him before he went to be with Jesus. He wrote a song based around this (but that baby makes it in the song) After the song, I got up and moved towards the back to take some more photos. I saw my friend Angie standing there & she asked “Were you crying during that last song?” I told her “Yes! If that baby int he song would’ve passed away, I would’ve needed therapy!” I then told her, if he sings “He’s my son” that “I’m outta here!” 🙂 The words to his music is just so powerful! I am so grateful that I was able to spend the evening listening to him singing & encouraging us through his songs. Amazing!!
