mortgage loans

Some time ago, I needed to buy a house for my business but I did not have enough cash and couldn't purchase anything. Thank heaven my mother adviced to try to take the loan at reliable bank. Therefore, I did so and used to be happy with my commercial loan.

Commonly, teachers want to check out the biography term paper writing technique of their students, nevertheless not all students can to write professionally because of lack of time and other stuff. Therefore, a essay writing service can aid to write the essay topic professionally.

Here is one small piece of proof.

Like I said earlier, the Holy Spirit talked to me, besides his message about First is Last and Last is First, he had something to say about “Who Killed JFK”. Christ tells me that the man who shot JFK is a policeman. He also tells me the name of the shooter, but it is in a jumbled word. The word is “Fritters”. I see the name F. Ritter right off so I think that is the name of the killer. Now God has lots of other messages for me to figure out, so I put “who Killed JFK” on the back burner for over a year. A year or more later , just recently, I have more time to look for F. Ritter. I can’t find a policeman with that name who lived in Dallas, Texas in 1963. So I am searching for information about who killed JFK and there is a picture of a policeman by the name of JD Tippit. Now Tippit kind of looks like Ritter. Now I unjumble the letters of Ritter to TIRRET. Now TIRRET looks more like TIPPIT. Now I make the R’s stand at attention, I get TIPPET. One problem is that the I and the E are not the same. So I do some research on the family name TIPPIT. Turns out that in the late 1800’s JD Tippit’s grandfather changed their name from Tippett to Tippit. So the next step I change the E to I. So Tippet is now Tippit.
Now I have FS Tippit and JD Tippit. The first two initials are not the same. Next I go to Wikipedia there I find; “Some thought that J. D. stood for Jefferson Davis. However JD does not stand for anything. That means his name is just J D. So the initials F S, do not stand for anything. I just have two initials that do not stand for anything. Are you following me?

Next what does FRITTERS mean. If your following my thinking here, God is going to tell you what happened to JD Tippit after he was shot. Fritters are a dough that is deep fried. Bread also means body, like in the last super Christ takes the bread and says this is my body. Look in the dictionary, PIT means HELL. TIP means money paid, gratuity. There are other meanings to.

JD Tippits body (dough) is placed in the deep fryer (lake of fire). Now I think this clue (Fritters) was ingenius. After all God came up with it. I think he does have a sense of humor too. Kids now have a new game to play. They can play God. Pilsbury dough boy fry’s in the lake of fire. You get HELL! fry baby fry!

If you think this is just crazy. Remember I am just the messenger. Jesus is the one that had to talk about JFK. So he had a reason for doing that. Chirst is telling you who killed the president so that you will believe that his messages are from God. Remember only God knows who killed JFK. He told me and I am telling you. I had forgotten about the case years ago. This is a cold case now, it been 45 year since the shooting. Nov. 22 is the anniversary.

I also read the part about giving false prophesy. God says false prophets go to Hell or something like that. I only repeat what God told me. Now what I wrote above is from God. He told me who killed JFK in 2006. The above is not a lie or a joke and I am going to HEAVEN without fear.

Before I forget. Gods messeges usually have more than one meaning. F S could also stand for “Fence Shooter”.

Who are the co-conspirators? Turns out that there are two policemen named Tippit, and one other Tippett working in the Dallas police Department that same year(1963). Back to the clue word Fritters. That is plural, you know about plural. We have two fritters. The co-conspirators name is Gayle M. Tippit.

Now the Dallas Police Departtment obviously covered up and framed Oswald. He was the Patsy. They did it cause it is very possible that one of the other police officers rushing to the scene saw Tippet fleeing the scene carrying a rifle. They covered it up because of the embarrassment of one of their own was the man that killed JFK? And the Warren commission must have also figured that out so they stuck with the Dallas Dept. story saying that it was Oswald. It could have been a National embarrassment. Now if you look at the evidence like I did. It is easy to see that the DAllas Police Dept tampered with the evidence over and over again. And they did a very bad job of it too.

Now this is my opinion, not Gods. I think God is behind the creation of the Internet. I could never have been able to figure out a lot of his messages without the use of the Internet. People on the Net have been a big help to me. God talks to other people too, they just don’t know it. God let me know it was him.

This is proof because it is impossible for any one to do what I did with the clue word FRITTERS. I made it look easy. I can do that over and over again in all of God’s messages. It is impossible for anyone to do what I do.

The Houston, TX show was scheduled for the Cynthia Woods Pavilian which is an outdoor open theater. As soon as I saw you guys were coming I sprung into action. I made an announcement at my Single Parents Bible Study class and said, "Let's go! Tell me how many tickets you want and I'll get them". Just before I had switched jobs from one that took all my time and energy but paid well to one that pays a lot less but blesses me in a multitude of ways. I had no idea how I would do it but I purchase more than 50 tickets for single parents and their kids. People paid me back when they could but God enabled me to front the cash somehow. We were all set, tickets were purchased for us all to sit up on the hill at CWMP so we planned to carpool and bring blankets and rock out. Then Hurricane Ike came. Ike damaged the pavilian and we were so afraid the concert would be cancelled. Then KSBJ (the best station in the country) announced the show would go on at a different venue. The Berry Center was opening the doors. Now it would be inside and closer to my house! Sawwweeeeet! I took my oldest son (14 yrs) and my sister, sat with the rest of my crew from Bible study and WE ROCKED OUT!!! It was amazing!!! I have to say that we were a little nervous when "RED" came out because we had never heard of them and they were a little scary to some of the younger kids but all is good. Some of our group had young kids that got very sleepy after Switchfoot and they ended up leaving early. I, however, refused to leave before I saw you guys! Third Day was my reason for coming! I bought the new album and my favorite song is Revelation. I listen to that song every day. My 11 yr old did not make the concert but he knows all the words to all the songs already. Oh also, we really enjoyed Robert Randolph....he is clearly talented and blessed as well. Obviously Switchfoot was awesome too...actually everyone was but my heart belongs to Third Day!

I said this on another blog but I cannot express to you what a wonderful blessing you guys were to those of us affected by Hurricane Ike (everyone in Houston and surrounding areas). For many, the concert was the place where they came to find God's peace from this massive destruction. God continues to show me peace through your music. God bless you guys!

First, I have to apologize that this is such a late response. Second, I absolutely loved the Music Builds Concert in kc!

I have two fairly short stories. If you care to hear them, here it goes.

My youth pastor's son went to the Music Builds Concert. He's about eight years old and so it was his very first concert. He was excited just to be there, but I'm pretty sure that Jon, from Switchfoot, made his night. When Jon walked down into the crowd, my youth pastor's son was standing close to that aisle, so he stuck out his hand and Jon gave him a high five. My youth pastor's son was ecstatic! Not to mention my youth pastor was thrilled because he was so excited for his son. :)

Alright, now for the other short story. The name that I chose on here has meaning behind it. The concert that I attended I had won the tickets and was given the opportunity to play the tambourine on stage with you all during the finale, "When Love Comes to Town." Now, I don't know if any of you would ever remember me, but you guys are so amazing! I had a fantastic, once in a lifetime experience that I will never forget. Thank you to all the bands for making it such a great experience. All of the band members that were moving around the stage were so friendly. I'm pretty sure I was probably smiling ear-from-ear and everyone just had a giant smile right back at me. I will never forget that amazing experience, thank you so much!

Tai, thanks for including me in the bow at the end when I was a little lost as to what was going on. That meant a lot. :]

I still can't believe that I actually played with you guys on stage! Ya'll are so amazing! Thank you for sharing your passion for the Lord and encouraging, heart-felt lyrics. I'm praying for you all and your families. God bless.

My wife and I went to the Kansas City show and it was a fantastic experience. Perfect weather, amazing performances, and great worship. We truly were blown away by the musicianship of Robert Randolph and the Family Band. There really were no words other than wow. Switchfoot was solid, especially on their iconic songs Meant to Live and Dare You to Move. But in the end, the reason we were there was to see Third Day. No band comes close when it comes to music, live performances, heart for worship, and presentation of the gospel. I am always blessed by Third Day's unashamed proclamation of the Gospel. I've never found a band that does it better.

The new album is great and plays VERY well live. It was a blessing to be there and get to be with Third Day again. Third Day concerts have come at very interesting times in my life: Senior year of high school at my high school in Atlanta for our senior fund raiser...my first date with my now wife...the one concert we went to while my wife was pregnant with our daughter...and this one was the first time our two kids spent the night away from home. So keep it up guys!

My husband, my two daughters and I went to your concert at the Verizon Wireless Music Center in Noblesville, Indiana. It was one of the hottest nights ever---not just because of the 90 degree heat and humidity. We enjoyed seeing four bands: Jars of Clay, Robert Randolph and the Family Band, Switchfoot, and Third Day. What a night of entertainment! The groups complimented each other very well.

For our oldest daughter, it was a dream night. Jon, the lead singer of Switchfoot, took her hand and sang to her. She's still sharing the picture that we captured that night.

In addition, we had passes to see you back stage. I must say that after a long, hot night we were surprised to see you standing. Yet, everyone who came to see you (until nearly 1:00 am) was greeted with the type of warmth and kindness that Jesus would have offered.

Perhaps you will remember us best by my motorized scooter and the pink pin that I left with you. It was something that my late father wore. It said, "Be Happy! It's a great day to be alive." I asked if you would make sure that the pin makes it to the Dove Awards with you. I hope that you still have this and that Tai pins it to his guitar strap for good luck.

We are glad that the tour is not quite over. We will see you again November 7 in Bloomington, Indiana. This is our 21st Wedding Anniversary and we can't think of anyone better to share it with! We'll be sitting on the third row of the IU Auditorium. We hope that you play..."Always be true." It really speaks to us. Like Mac and his wife, we are also high school sweethearts.

May the Lord bless you in your travels. You hold a special place in our hearts.

Hey,
Saw you in Virginia Beach, Va and it was an incredible show. And I must tell you that I LOVE this album. Pretty much have to listen to it daily. Show was great. Worshiping with thousands is just amazing, as a matter of fact, I was also able to enjoy and worship with you guys @ Busch Gardens,in Williamsburg, Va. i hope you are going to do that again next year. Tell Mac I am the No Blue Line Girl, I told him that story when I got to meet you all after the music builds tour. Not that he will really remember that, but maybe. Anyway, me and my two best friends are going on the K-Love cruise,and cannot waite to see you again. You all are Awesome, and such a Blessing.
Any Job's available with you all??
And I am looking to find out what the interlocking circles logo means???
See you soon, get some rest. Be blessed.
Third Day Rocks!!

Arleen

You guys are just plain AWESOME!!! No doubt about it. Keep rockin' and come back to sunny southern Cali soon please!!

Corinda

I was the most blessd person in KC on Sat. I told this story all night, when I found out Third Day was coming with oh my, Switchfoot WOW, Robert Randolph and the family band, and Jars of Clay, I felt like I would definitely get my money's worth. Never expected to be on front row. I have 4 teens who none like concerts. I live for them, it is so neat to be able to see your favorites in person, to experience the adrenaline. I think I am almost a bit psycho about it, but I have already bought tickets to see you guys again in springfield, mo. My husband does not know yet. I know I can give my tickets away again, like I did in kc cause no one in MY family appreciates it like I do. The Friend I ended up taking to the concert, cried all through Mac's talk, it ministered to her greatly, and I am so glad I listened to the Lord when I offerred her to go with me. It was the greatest time ever, it is Monday 48 hours after, and I am still on this high from it. God Bless your families for letting you go on the road and be with your fans. It is an amazing sacrifice (one of many I am sure). see you in springfield in November. I am 38 but will be the crazy lady in front again I am sure acting 18!!!1

love ya, Corinda
ya, if you ever need a nurse to travel with you, keep me in mind....

The KC concert was fabulous. I lost my father on Monday, so the concert on Saturday was just what I need spiritually after a very rough week. At the back stage Wired session, I learned from David Carr that his dad has been very ill and in the hospital for 11 weeks. My thoughts and prayers go out to David, having just gone through that. Lift your troubles up to God, and the like the song says, "cry out to Jesus". Take care, my friend.

Bob&Audra

We attended the KC concert last night. It was amazing!!! Back in April, my husband purchased the tickets for our anniversary - which wasn't until June. He kept them a secret and then, on our 15th anniversary, over dinner gave me the tickets. I admit I cried -tears of joy! We are Big Third Day fans and to throw in Jars of Clay and Switchfoot - that was too much to ask! We had not been introduced to Robert Randolf, but after visiting his website, we were hooked! What talent!

We had been praying for good weather since June and the Lord did not disappoint! What an amazing concert - truly a worship experience - all 4+ hours of it! I sing on the worship team at our church and told our team that I had learned a new move at the concert. I told them we could do the "march" as RR had instructed us! Honestly - you could have played another two hours and I would have stood right there with my hands held high!

Please let Brad know that we miss him and pray for this new chapter in his life. Mark, you rocked on the twelve string electric. My husband is learning to play electric and was amazed when he saw you with that one! Our boys (ages 6, 10, 12)were disappointed that we were not bringing them to the concert with us - they just wanted us to let them know how many guitars there were and if you played "Take me to the other side". I told them I lost count on the number of guitars. We listened to the Revelation CD all the way to church this morning - they know all of the words! I love that we can all "rock" in the minivan to music that we all enjoy!

I loved the gathering of worship at the end of the concert. The U2 song really summed it up. If we are going to be part of the Lord's work here on earth - we have to get on board with His love! It is too easy to judge, we have to look past our differences: music styles, skin color, denomination, gender, size of our house, or the year of our car....and reach out and Love our Neighbors.

Thank you for your ministry...Well done!

My wife and I went to the show in Dallas on the 2nd. It was our first time to see Third Day in concert. I was just blown away by the show. All the bands were so good.
The live show gives me a little glimps into what the bands are realy like. I was able to meet David Carr and get a picture with him. It was realy neat to be able to meat someone like that. I listen to Third Day Almost every day. The music they make just hits home on a lot of levels. Revelation is just another great work that reaches in and grabs the soul.
Keep up the good work.

joanne

I have been blown away by MBT. Robert Randolph's set was incredible.

I have become a new fan of Switchfoot's, as well as my son's, who haven't stopped singing "Oh, Gravity" or "Stars" as they walk to school. We even made a MBT playlist of their set to play in the car.

And of course, it's always good to see Third Day. For me, it was a chance to bring my boys and have them experience a "really rockin' concert" (as Jared would say) with my sons and having them meet you all. Very special indeed.

Jeanna Hatley

I already left a comment but I don't think I said enough about the line up and the show. So here I am again. I felt there was something for everyone. The RR family band was amazing!! Even Red got us kind of pumped--but they are a little to hard rock for me. Jars--I love them, in fact Flood is one of my favorites. I was suprised to see them with not so much production. Switchfoot--I am now a big fan...I have one issue and one only...I wish yall could have played longer. I would love to see a show with your old stuff...Picture it...June 2008, my husband says to me--have you ever heard Black Bird? hahaha I love that song May Your Wonders Never Cease. I could go on and on...I would love to see a show... Well just think about it. It seemed like Switchfoot played longer--Thirdday was over so fast...dude that's rough. By the was love love love the new CD.

Jeanna Hatley

I am so glad you asked! My husband, son and I were at your Dallas show and it was a family event, let me tell ya! First of all it was our very first concert. (I don't know why, I guess I just thought all concerts were just overrated!!) We purchased lawn seats and it was a night of very special family time filled with kisses, hugs, moonlight, coolbreeze, oh and yes the music and the music was intimate. I always thought...why go to a concert when you have a concert dvd.?.hehehe After the show I see that was a stupid thing for me to think! The line-up was beyond words...Switchfoot brought tears to my husbands eyes...a man who never cries. We will have to do a meet and greet with yall next time because and please tell David Carr...my son plays his little drum set in his room with Thirdday playing in the CD player and has all his moves from the DVD's memorized. He thinks Thirday should be called the David Carr Band! You did not have on a hat at the show--and you were in TEXAS! That is WRONG! WE LOVE THIRDDAY...YOU ARE OUR ROCKSTARS!! We are praying for you and your families.

Cindy Cooper

Tai,
Bless you!!! I so much wanted to let all you guys know HOW much of a blessing ya'll have been to my family, and here is the perfect opportunity! Thank you.
Much anticipation was put in to going to this concert from the first it was heard of! It happened to be coming up on my son's 23rd b-day, how exciting! Finally the day to purchase the desired tickets..."Please, Lord, let us get good seats..." But,before the exciting day gets here; purchase one amazing CD..."Revelation," to which the Lord says to give to daughter. (I'm going to buy another one :). Day of the concert, two of my kids, one kid's boyfriend, and later in the city, my oldest daughter joins us. First time we've ever been early to a concert! We had amazing unity amongst us all the way, which brings me to the amazing unity OF the concert...
Red caught us off-guard by how early they were, SO grateful to have caught their show!!! Amazing energy...their song,"Already Over," had me worshiping the Lord right away. My oldest daughter was thrilled to hear that they would be there, also. Thank you, Red!!!
Next was the Jars...my youngest daughter hoped to hear,"I'll Fly Away," and she was not disappointed. (Glad to hear Flood,too, next time, "Crazy Times"?!!) Thank you, Jars of Clay!!!
Then, the NEVER dissapointing, "Robert Randolph and the Family Band," they almost brought the house down. So much spunk and LOVE!!! (We first saw them on the,"Crossroads," Eric Clapton DVD). My son thought they were the greatest. Thank you, Robert Randolph and the Family Band!!!
Then out came Switchfoot...My youngest daughter and boyfriend were very excited to see these guys live. They were very personable, and awesome. The speech that Jon gave about not liking the,"machine," and how church could do things differently really touched me. Some of us have been wounded by this world and the system, with the church at times even creating walls that shouldn't be there. Love and truth should go hand in hand. Thank you Switchfoot for your message and your music!!!
And then there is Third Day...this was concert 3 for me...Music Boat, Crossroads Cathedral this past winter, and this very special concert. Guys, ya'll are like family around here, maybe extended family, but family never the less!!! I remember when we were new christians and Third Day had their first mega-hit, "Consuming Fire," I was in my early thirties then and loved that video! Imagine the thrill I had to hear that song requested AND played at the show! Also,thank you, Mac, for praying and asking the Lord to send His Spirit. Several times during the more worshipful moments, I looked out across the venue, and oh, my gosh, it was heavenly...I'm quite sure heaven will be like it was in those moments, I'm taken back even now, to the worshipful atmosphere, and the mutual admiration for our Lord; with souls opened up to Him, and the thing that He most impressed upon me as I took it all in...is for all of our family members to make it to heaven...
The unity was awesome that night, praise God! Which reminds me of the encore with everyone participating, that was beautiful!!
Thank you guys, each and every one of every band, you all were/are SUCH a blessing, and these are just a few blogs to let you know how much we love and appreciate your sincerity...your heart of worship.
May the Lord bless you all greatly, and turn His face toward you and give you peace, and bless every member of your families!!!
Blessings in Jesus name!!! Much love, both now and forevermore...

Great show! Have you ever had one of those unanswered questions in the back of your mind for many years? Well, I had one answered at the Atl show. Third Day was pointing out some people in the crowd that they recognized. One of them is a guy I have been seeing at local concerts for years and I never knew his name. They showed him on the video screen. Apparently his name is "Buddy". Third Day knew his name, why didn't I?

Stacy~Java Mama Gomer

Hey Guys,
I was at the San Antonio show and...OMG!!!~It was AWESOME...ALL the bands were great! But for me, when y'all come on to play it's all about praising His name and in that place of total worship. This was my 4th Third Day concert and y'all just get better and better! I did miss seeing Brad up there rockin' out with y'all, but I know God has him doing other things at the moment. Mac, God has blessed you with the most amazing voice and Tai..you and Mark and David have been blessed beyond measure with musical talent, and the music and lyrics that y'all bring together... continually speak to my spirit and bless me more than words can express. I just want to say Thank You for being obedient to God's call on your lives and Thank you for being real! Being at Third Day concert is like being at home, y'all are so personable, so real and true!!!
Take Care
Love & Blessings

Hi there Guys I cannot wait to see you tommorow night you are so awesome And switchfoot and jars of clay and robert randolf what a show it is going to be

It is actually one day, until I take my 11 year old daughter, 11 year old neice and 18 year old "daughter" (from Christ-not childbirth) to see you all at Starlight in Kansas City Saturday evening. (btw-weather says sunny & 78!) Heres the deal. My neice lost her Mom last year to a 90 day battle of Cancer. She also has IDD (Immune Difficiency Disorder) where she releys on plasma infusions twice a week to keep her alive. This girl is truly amazing, and filled with Christ. She not only spoke at her mothers funeral but sang as well. Your music was not only sung at the funeral, but has been a huge gift in her life in helping her through the grief process. This was my gift to her for her birthday and she is coming from Iowa just to see you all. The teen girl,I have worked with in Youth at our church for the last 7 years. She put her Dad in jail at age 13 and lost her mom to overdose last year. She also exudes Christ beyond words! And then of course MY daughter. She doesn't listen to Christian music and this will be her 1st concert ever. She is going to see Toby Mac next month and thinks because he raps he is the only good one out there. I can't WAIT for her to see ALL of this group! I really don't know WHAT I am asking, but even if the girls were to be able to do a "meet and greet" I just want this evening to blow them all away! Kindof late notice I know, but it wasn't laid on my heart until midnight tonight. If that WAS God, I guess we will find out! Blessings to you all !

Sorry if this is too long. I just cut and pasted from my blog:


Last night's concert was worth every minute of the six-hour round-trip car ride from Morgan Hill.

To summarize the evening I could just say the following: from start to finish, there was not one disappointing moment throughout the course of four amazing artists' contributions to rock.

To start things off, I'm going to do my concert write-up backwards, starting with Third Day. Third Day's set was a mixture of old and new songs. From the new album, they played "This Is Who I Am," "Call My Name," "Run to You," "Revelation," and last but certainly not least: "Otherside." Robert Randolph came back on stage for "Otherside" which became a near sensory overload with Randolph's screaming steel guitar matched with Mark Lee's searing guitar licks. Older songs included "Thief," "Your Love Oh Lord," "Creed" (a Rich Mullins cover), and "God of Wonders" (one the band has adopted as their own). Overall, my favorites were "Thief," "Revelation," and "Otherside."

What made the evening extra special were the friends and family there. To my right was Michelle and Myron. To my left, my Mom, Dad, German, Michael. Both my Mom and German had never been to a Third Day concert. During "Call My Name," my Mom and I shared a special moment praising God together. This is the second time I've seen them since Brad left exactly seven months prior. I simply don't know how they do it, but their sound is stronger now than it has ever been. And I have never been more proud to call myself a Third Day fan.

There seemed to be a recurring theme throughout the course of many amazing things that happened before, during and after the concert: spiritual transformation. One of them was a story about one of the security guards realizing God's love for him. Another about my wife leading a girl to Christ. And another about my friend German re-dedicating his life on his 13th anniversary of first trusting in Christ.

Another highlight of the evening was Myron and I meeting Third Day backstage after the show. Just a day before the concert, I had received an email confirming my backstage meet-n-greet with the band. Wanting to test my chances, I had asked whether or not Michelle could come back as well (even though she is not a fan club member). After checking in at the Wired (fan club) booth, I was surprised and elated all at the same time, to find out that someone else had cancelled and I could have their pass. Running back to my seat, I told Michelle what happened. She, having met the guys before and wanting Myron to be afforded the opportunity, gave her pass to him. He couldn't believe it. As you can tell in the picture taken above, he was definitely excited.

As I mentioned earlier, Michelle led someone who had many questions about the Christian faith to the Lord, while waiting for me and a Myron to come back from the meet-n-greet. The girl she talked with had an exemplary sister (who was also meeting the band backstage) walking the walk, yet simply wasn't sure of the next step. Praise God. I'm so grateful for a wife with a heart to bring other people to the Lord.

Back to the concert (and proceeding backwards from Third Day), Switchfoot was truly a tough act to follow. I can't narrow down my favorites, as they played so many great songs from their last three albums. Jon Foreman wowed the crowd with his guitar talking, speaker climbing, and walk through the middle of the audience. They've definitely grown up since the first and last time I saw them opening up for a little band called Delirious, nine years ago.

Next, Robert Randolph was truly a sight to behold. Not only could he play the steel guitar like nobody's business, but he can play every other instrument in his band... also like nobody's business. During one of the last songs, the band switched instruments more than once. Robert went from steel guitar, to the drums, to bass as easily as most people breathe. Now I know firsthand why Rolling Stone magazine declares him one of the top 100 guitarists of all time.

Appearing first, Jars of Clay, put on a great show. They played at least two new songs (to be featured on their new release this coming March) and a couple new versions of old songs ("Flood" and "Love Song for a Savior") featured on their new EP - "Closer." As always, the band was decked out in the coolest matching attire. Having seen them three times now, I can say they have definitely held their own these past 13 years. Lyrically and musically, I think they're one of the very top artists out there right now. And they only continue to get better as time goes on.

Well, I hope this review gave you at least a taste of what the seven of us experienced last night. I would have to place this concert somewhere in the top five of fifteen I've been to. The opening acts (if I can call them that) certainly were the best of any I've witnessed. All glory to God for the work He is doing through these incredible bands to bring the message of hope to a very needy world, both at each concert they perform, but also to those who benefit from the Habitat for Humanity partnership ($1 from each ticket goes to providing housing to deserving families through Habitat).

I was at the San Antonio show. I can't remember if I told you at the M&G or not, but it was my very first Third Day show, period...ever! And I've been a fan for 10 years! So it was already pretty special just BEING there, and getting the opportunity to actually meet all you guys as well was beyond words! But the concert itself just went above and beyond anything I could've imagined! Jars rocked it, RRFB rocked it, Switchfoot ROCKED it, and of course, you guys ROCKED IT! There were too many special moments to list them all...the music, the prayer, the worship, it was all incredible! But by far, the best moment of the show, for me personally, was hearing I've Always Loved You! It was that song that turned me onto you guys 10 years ago. My bro came over to let me listen to this new song he'd just learned that night in P&W practice. He said it was right up my alley, and boy was he right! The acoustic guitar, the southern rock vibe, the simplicity of the lyrics...they all made I've Always Loved You THE perfect song for me! Before the intro was even over, I was hooked! Ten years later I can finally say I've seen you guys in concert and I've had the pleasure of meeting yall as well! And I can't wait to do it all over again!!!

God bless you guys and thanks for an AMAZING night!

Hey TAI,
SAN ANTONIO was ROCKING Saturday!!! This concert was a b-day gift from my husband and it was our 1st time seeing you guys and it WILL NOT BE THE LAST! The energy RED, Jars,RR, and Switchfoot brought to the crowd was amazing! AND then...an experience in my life occurred that I will never forget...Third Day was on stage rocking the house! The praise and worship you guys incorporate is such a moving experience. Thank you guys for a b-day I will never forget! And continue to create and perform such uplifting music that spreads the JOY that comes with being a believer!
God Bless all of you guys and your families!

I was front and center with my mom and sister Friday night in Houston. We all are avid listeners of KSBJ, but I'm such a busy bee that I usually don't have time to find out who sings what song and really become a "fan" of anyone. After a long week of teaching 3rd graders I was exhausted when Friday finally rolled around. After sitting through hours of traffic we arrived late and missed most of Jars performance. During Switchfoot I had to leave and go upstairs to get some food because I was starving! (Ask any teacher- we barely have any time to eat a decent meal during the day) After I ate and had some energy - you guys came on stage. I was blown away! I am definitely a Third Day fan now! I don't have any constructive criticism for you guys... your show is already amazing.
