My Favorite Sports Page Ever

My nephew, Seth Gower who plays baseball for the Hebron Lions and my son, Michael Barnes for the Dacula Falcons made the same sports page.  How cool is that!  I am so proud of these guys on an off the field.  Click on the link:


Today’s Song

I was listening to “Reign In Us” by Starfield many times today.  My church does this song from time to time and I love it.

I’m working on several, just to keep up.  This one is a great laid back song of worship.

Do you have a favorite today?  Anyone?  I’d love to hear.

In Wonder

Today was a great day!  Well, with the exception of the spring forward time change.  Jim Hollandsworth, executive pastor at Graystone,  and I have decided that it’s time for the time change to end.  We think this should be the last one.  OK Jim, you get it done and I’ll back you up the whole way.

When I walked into the worship center at Graystone this morning I felt good.  I am very honored and grateful to Kyle, Jonathan and the whole encouraging Graystone staff for allowing me to be a part of the worship this morning.  Our church is an awesome place and such a great church to worship freely.  I felt total FREEDOM to sing a song to the most high God this morning. No looking over my shoulder.

At the end of Jonathan Howe’s, lead pastor of Graystone, first message in the HEAVEN series, we did the song IN WONDER, made popular by the Newsboys.  I didn’t get to see the video that was playing while we did the song, but I heard it was awesome.

My family is so glad to be plugged in at Graystone and thankful to God for getting us there.  We are blessed.

P.S.  Dustin Mattox, thanks for the loving threat!  LOL

20 Months, But Who’s Counting

I met with Kyle Hale, my worship pastor, today to iron out some particulars for a song this weekend.  Kyle has invited me to play (sing) with the band this week as we kick off the new HEAVEN series at Graystone Church.  Kyle is a great encourager and an awesome worship leader.  The band is a great bunch of talented folks that I am looking forward to working with. 

Yep, 20 months since I saw a mic up close.  The pipes may be a tad rusty…..but I have enjoyed the workout and can’t wait to use them this week.  I am pumped and glad to be so.

If you don’t have plans or might be looking for a great place to belong, come visit us at Graystone.  Service times are 9:15am and 11:00am on Sundays.
