Sunday night, John and I spent the evening at Lancaster Bible College enjoying and worshiping with Mandisa, Brandon Heath and Laura Story at their 3 in 1 Tour.
It was wonderful!
Mandisa filled the auditorium with her enthusiasm and energy. And, who, even on a dreary morning, is not instantly lifted up and compelled to smile, want to dance and give thanks for a new day when hearing her lively, Good Morning!
Lifting our hearts to praise our loving Father
Mandisa and Brandon
Brandon brought his passion for others with many favorites including Give Me Your Eyes and Jesus in Disguise with his gentle and compassionate, storytelling style.
It was the first time I heard Brandon's, Paul Brown Petty and it touched my heart especially as I thought of the dear relationship my husband has with our grandson, Jared.
Brandon and Laura
Laura with her sweet baby girl who travels with her.
This lovely lady shared her multi-talent, moving from keyboard to guitar to bass complimenting her beautiful voice. Her performance encompassed a genuineness, strength, and love as she shared her journey on a road she and her husband didn't expect. I love her very real and heart-felt music style.
Laura performing Blessings.
What if your blessings come through raindrops? What if your healing comes through tears?
What if a thousand sleepless nights are what it takes to know you’re near?
What if trials of this life are your mercies in disguise?
A brain tumor hospitalized her husband, Martin, not long into their marriage. Their journey through recovery and memory loss and their response by trusting God and continuing to worship him is a tremendous encouragement. We all face hard roads at times and the words of this song are powerful.

This endearing smile is a window into her warm personality and sense of humor.
