Yes, we met him last night, and we have proof! But let me start at the beginning. Rob's friend Jason came to visit (he's actually here on business, but stayed a couple of extra days to hang with us). We love Jason, our kids love Jason, and we'll be REAL sad to see him go.
So anyway, Trinity Christian Academy hired Smitty to do a concert for their fundraiser. We have no association with TCA, but we are fans of Smitty AND the concert took place at Watermark (our church).
Jason works with Smitty's record label so he got us tickets and All Access passes.
And so, we got to meet Smitty. . .
He is a really great guy, genuine & real. He sang "Friends are Friends Forever" which all the adults knew, but the kids seemed clueless. This made us feel a slightly old. We had a great time & some of Smitty's words stuck out to me.
He talked about how we are loved by our Father. He kept referring to Him as Papa. I love that intimacy. He talked about how we are not only loved by our Papa, but liked & cherished. He said that finally at one point he came to realize that he is the son of the Great King of the Universe. And once we realize who we really are, daughters & sons of the most High King, our life is no longer about us. We don't worry about us anymore because we are rooted in who we are. Those are not his exact words, but they are how I remember them. He said it much better, but I wanted to share because it was such a good reminder to me.
