We just got home from Fredericksburg, where we did an interview at KFAN to promote this weekend's show in Fredericksburg (more on that in a second). While we were there, we reminisced with Jay Fritz, the owner, about playing for KFAN for the first time on their "Bandera Music Hour" show 4 years ago. We played at this dive of a place in Bandera (well, that narrows it down, doesn't it?) on a Saturday afternoon to 4 people. And yet, that was how KFAN first picked us up, started playing our songs, and thus got much of our following. Who knew that Bandera would be the jumping-off place for so many of our dreams? I was driving around the other day, listening to the radio, and I was reminded (and humbled at the same time) again what an absolute honor it is to be able to be played for the world, sandwiched in between musical legends, masters of the craft, people who have inspired me. What a gift. I never dreamed that, as a college student, struggling to learn chords on my guitar, devouring every Shawn Colvin record and longing to *be* what she represented to me, I'd have the privilege of being heard alongside her and her peers.

I read a quote today that hit home: "The chief cause of unhappiness is giving up what you want most for what you want at the moment." How many times do we set our dreams aside for something that, while it may be good, may not be God's *best* for us? How many times do we let fear keep us from accomplishing what we really have always wanted to do? My favorite saying of all time is, "Jump, and the net will appear." David and I are living proof of that truth. It really is possible to do what you know you were really, truly created to do. Don't let fear hold you back. I was so very "Much-Afraid" when we first started this whole venture, but it has been so cool to watch the whole thing unfold. Be encouraged. Your heart's desire is your heart's desire for a reason.

So we just finished up with 24 Season 3. Omigosh. That show is like heroin. Freaking heroin. We have the first 4 hours of the new season Tivo'd and I can't wait. Jack Bauer is hardcore. I love him. 24 is the best show on TV, ever.

Well, I'm off to bed.

Word up....
