I believe I have mentioned before how much our family LOVES Casting Crowns. As in it is the main songs that are played over and over in our car, house, etc. Ya know in every place we play music you will hear some Casting Crowns. We love their songs, messages, and their obvious love for God.
Now let's mix our love for them and the Rangers together, you get AWESOMENESS! I mean really? Mix two of my favorite things together and I am talking one fantastic day! Oh wait! Let's add in meeting the entire band? Double oh wow, I can't believe our luck kinda experience! I was beyond excited when we hung around for just a bit and managed to meet all of the band and my son got to get pictures with them. They were genuinely some of the nicest people. They each waited around to sign autographs and talked to their fans. The violinist for the band has an amazing story to share and the fact that The Aggrivator got to take a picture with her is amazing in itself...she doesn't usually do pictures or autographs because she has severe arthritis that makes it hard to sign or shake hands with people. She shy away from it in order to protect herself, but she did come over to take a picture with him because there weren't a huge group left at that point. Her story is nothing short of amazing. To know everything she has went through and still continues to play and spread God's love is astounding. To read her blog you can go here. Well worth the read.
All that said to say we had an amazing day and all because somebody thought we would like some free tickets to a Rangers game! Well, of course we do!
Oh and a side note? They sound just as amazing in person as they do on their cds!
