American Music Theatre

Saturday, February 20

DSC_8267-001During the previous, cold, windy weekend, Cerwin and I decided that we needed a mini, local vacation. (This was the weekend before Mother High’s death, so we didn’t want to go very far.) After the prayer breakfast, we visited Mother, then went to hear Mark Lowery. Most of you know him as a past member of the Gaither Vocal Band.

DSC_8265-001The American Music Theatre is only about an hour away from us.

DSC_8269-001He combines gospel music and comedy.

DSC_8273-001It was good to laugh at and with him.

DSC_8286-001He has a few younger relatives who think this is what he will look like when he gets older. 🙂

Mary Did You Know?

Mary, did you know that your baby boy
Will one day walk on water?
Mary, did you know that your baby boy
Will save our sons and daughters?Did you know that your baby boy
Has come to make you new?
This child that you’ve delivered
Will soon deliver you

Mary, did you know that your baby boy
Will give sight to a blind man?
Mary, did you know that your baby boy
Will calm a storm with His hand?

Did you know that your baby boy
Has walked where angels trod?
When you kiss your little baby
You’ve kissed the face of God

The blind will see, the deaf will hear
And the dead will live again
The lame will leap, the dumb will speak
The praises of the Lamb

Mary, did you know that your baby boy
Is Lord of all creation?
Mary, did you know that your baby boy
Will one day rule the nations?

Did you know that your baby boy
Is heaven’s perfect Lamb?
This sleeping child you’re holding
Is the ‘Great I Am.’

The afternoon was good for my body, spirit, and soul.
After this we went to a birthday party. I will show those pictures tomorrow night.

  1. Was he with the Martins? We heard them many years ago at Wawasee High School not too far from here. And or course, we’ve seen and heard Mark at Gaither concerts, and on TV and You Tube.

  2. Sounds wonderful in more ways than one.

    Long ago in a small Baptist church we got a surprise one Sunday night. The pastor was friends of the Gaithers. They agreed to come and perform as long as he told no one–not even the church. They just showed up and performed.AND left immediately after performing–about an hour. They were new to me at the time. Lol
