I hope you enjoyed your extra long weekend! I've always felt it's a bit strange that Memorial Day is a celebratory day when it's supposed to be a day to remember our fallen soldiers. I think for most of us, we don't have any family members that have given their lives for the sake of our country so we feel a bit detached from it. I suppose that's normal, but it still makes me feel sort of bad. I have two cousins in the Air Force and one in the Marines and I am thankful none of them have had to serve on the front lines yet.
This year we actually did have something to celebrate on Memorial Day as it was my oldest sister's birthday. And the sun finally shone that day! We had a storm sitting on top of Florida for about a week and so the sun had barely shown it's face all that time. It was a good weekend.
On Saturday, we also had our CD release show for the Hourglass EP at The Coffee Spot in Holiday, FL! We worked so hard on that album and I am so glad it's finished. Well, at least the music part is done. Now we have to create new layouts for our Myspace, Web site, etc., take new pictures and release the album digitally. So we've really only finished one aspect of the project, but that was the hardest part. I really can't wait until you guys can hear it. I hope you like it. It makes me a bit nervous releasing new music because I never know if people will like it. I'm always hoping we don't disappoint people. But even if we do, we took what God gave us and did the most we possibly could with it. As long as He is pleased, that's okay. And surprisingly, I really do mean that. As long as God is pleased, it's all okay. Soli Deo Gloria.
I was blessed at our CD release show. Then again, I am blessed every time we play at The Coffee Spot. The family that owns the place have become very good friends of ours and so their company alone is enough to make it a great night. Then Mom, Dad, Sam and Faith surprised Andrew, Kaitie and I with a big cake that said "Congratulations Truth Bomb Hourglass EP". That was better than any award or prize anyone could have given us!
