One of the perks of working in television is the opportunity to meet some famous faces. I had the chance to do just that tonight. Grammy Award winning Bluegrass and Country Music artist, Ricky Skaggs, was in Bowling Green to promote his new book, Kentucky Traveler.
I interviewed him before the lecture and book signing. He was truly a humble man who was eager to share his faith. I sorta felt like I had been to church after hearing his speak. He actually said something that will stick with me forever.
He said: The Apostle Paul didn't make Christian tents. He was a Christian who made tents."
I loved that reminder - you don't have to work in the ministry in order to minister to someone. You can be a witness no matter what your occupation. God has given us all different talents, and he has a calling on all our lives. We simply have to be obedient and give him glory no matter what type of work he calls us to do.
Anyway, Ricky Skaggs happens to be one of Eric's favorite recording artists. He is the one who introduced me to Ricky's music. In fact, he chose one of his songs "Thanks Again" to dance with his mom at our wedding. (wow there were a lot of prepositions in that sentence.)
I would venture to guess that aside from getting married and the birth of our children, this might about been the highlight of Eric's life. ha! Ok, I'm being dramatic, but as you can see below, the man was excited!!
I also have to give a shout out to two wonderful women from my bible study group, Susan and Beth, who came over to keep the kids so that we go. They have been such a blessing to me and my family. Eli wasn't too thrilled when they left. Ha!
Obviously, it was a great night!
