Kari. Jobe. Adorable.

I'm going to try not to gush.

But I already know I'm going to fail.

Kari Jobe came to our church a couple of Sundays ago to lead praise and worship.

And it was awesome.

Of course her distinctively sweet voice and beautiful music made for an incredibly impactful morning.  But it was her humble and peaceful demeanor that made such an impression on me.

Our pastor, Randy Phillips, is a vocalist and musician with Phillips, Craig and Dean.  They won the Dove award for Inspirational Song of the Year a few months ago for Revelation Song.  Kari also has a version of that song on her album and sang with the guys at the awards show.


And Randy and Kari sang it together again on Sunday.


Gorgeousness.

It was also a delight to meet  Kari's guitar player, Hank Bentley.  He and his wife Lindsay were absolutely charming.

I also got to play with the upgraded version of my beloved Canon, along with a big ol' honking expensive lens on it that made me all giddy and happy.  I played paparazzi all morning and then ignored piles and piles of laundry while I edited and edited at home later.

Now I'm telling you all this because I have a pretty spiffy giveaway coming up tomorrow.  One that you're definitely going to want to tune into.  Hint.  Hint.  Hint.


But the main take-away here is the joy it is to see people operating in the gifts the Lord has given them.  The kids' Sunday school teacher that communicates the love of the Lord to little ones.  The guy who faithfully sets up tables and chairs and equipment every week.  The gregarious and friendly couple who meet everyone at the door.  It's such a joy to see.


And to see the joy of those who faithfully serve.
