This is Hillsong United live. They are singing the song "solution" on the All of the above album.
I am thinking that this is the winner for the next Haiti video. Read the words below. They are so powerful. Let me know if it touches you as it touches me. I sit in my car and cry everytime I hear it.



It is not a human right
To stare not fight
While broken nations dream
Open up our eyes, so blind
That we might find
The Mercy for the need
Singin Hey Now
Fill our hearts with your compassion
Hey Now
As we hold to our confession
Yeah
It is not too far a cry
To much to try
To help the least of these
Politics will not decide
If we should rise
And be your hands and feet
Singing Hey Now
Fill our hearts with your compassion
Hey Now
As we hold to our confession
Woah-oh-oh,
God be the solution
Woah-oh-oh
We will be Your hands and be Your feet
.Yeah, yeah
Higher than a circumstance
Your promise stands
Your love for all to see
Higher than protest line and dollar signs
Your love is all we need
Only you can mend the broken heart
And cause the blind to see
Erase complete the sinners past
And set the captives free
Only you can take the widows cry
And cause her heart to sing
Be a father to the fatherless
Our savior and our king
We will be your hands, we will be your feet
We will run this race
On the darkest place, we will be your lightWe will be your light
We will be your hands , we will be your feet
We will run this race for the least of these
In the darkest place, we will be your light
We will be your light (we’ll say/sing?)
We will run we will run
We will (run with the solution?) (2x)
We will be your hands we will be your feet
We will run this race for the least of these
In the darkest place we will be your light
We will be your light

Toby Mac
Nik and Grace
Michelle
Rosemy, Julie and myself (yes that is hot chocolate in my hand!)

I am stealing pictures from Julie as we didn't bring our camera. So sorry Julie but your pictures were great! If you read both of our blogs then I apologize!! LOL


We had a great time last night even though the heavens opened up and poured on us!!! While the bands were playing I didn't really feel the rain. I was able to keep warm by dancing around. I also realized that during Toby Mac the rained pretty much stopped until the very end! Thank you God for that reprieve!!!


I have to say I went mostly because I love skillet and I like some of Toby Mac songs on the radio. However I LOVED Toby Mac! I would see them again in a heart beat. They have a great stage show and the kids just loved it!!! It was our summer family splurge and I am sooooo glad we went!!

Toby Mac/Skillet



Tonight we are going to the Allegan county fair to see Toby Mac and Skillet. Nathan and I love skillet and the kids love Toby Mac (I like a lot of his stuff but not sure about the really rappy stuff) It should be a fun time. We are going with friends and some of their kids as well!


Please pray for NO rain. I can handle a little bit of cold but not rain.
For those of you who do not know who skillet is here is one of their videos from youtube.

They have a great message for young adults and at the last skillet concert we went to they really proclaimed Jesus Christ!
