Traveling AbroadSeptember 2, 2010 10:44 pm 9 Comments
Well, I have a birthday in a couple of weeks, and Kate has been working on a trip to make it a memorable one. We left for Europe September 1st and flew to Paris. I actually have no idea where we are going for the next 20 days. Kate’s going to tell me each day where we’re traveling next. I actually didn’t know we were staying in Paris but on the flight over Kate gave me a Paris guidebook as a gift as my first clue. I’ll keep you posted…All I know is that twenty days from now we will end up in Florence, Italy.
Kate finished her medical school and residency in OB-GYN this May (eight long years) and I completed 10 years of touring. Needless to say, though we’ve been married for 5 years, our cumulative time together feels like 9 months. I think we are still newlyweds by that standard. Anyway, we both wanted to do something this year that would take us out of our comfort zones, grow our dreams big and inspire us for the next chapter of our lives. Our desire is that at the end of this year we will have grown closer together and closer to God. We are praying that Kate will get direction for her career in which she hopes to combine medicine and missions; and my prayer is that I will be inspired creatively and spiritually so that my music and message will continue to be meaningful and also glorify God.
Even though we’re traveling, I’ll still be back to the States for shows in the Fall/Winter 2010 and also Spring of 2011. Additionally, I’m hoping to get to share my music with audiences in Europe as well. So, I will keep you posted on our journey and I will look forward to coming back to the States in December for my Christmas Tour, in a city near you, and sharing more of what God has been showing us.
