So when she posted that Selah would be in concert as closely as Nashville, I called for a road trip. Secretly, we were hoping to meet Angie in person.
We were not disappointed.
After she got settled into her seat with her kids, I went over there, introduced myself, and chatted with her for a few minutes. She was as sweet as I knew she would be, and let us get our picture with her. When I told her my bloggy name, she actually KNEW who I was!
The concert was A.M.A.Z.I.N.G! We love Nicol, and miss her in the group, but I was instantly in love with Amy Perry. She is (in her words) a big girl, like me. I can't say how special it was to see someone my own size not relegated (by choice, or demand) to the background. She was inspiring. She gave me hope. I could clearly tell that when she sang, it wasn't about her. She was worshipping her Lord with confidence and I couldn't keep my eyes off her.
We stayed around for autographs and pictures.
It was a L-O-N-G drive home, but TOTALLY worth it!
