Creation Festival 2011
We had an amazing time at the Creation Festival this past week. The crowd reached an estimate of 115,000 people. Although our journey started out a little rocky by traveling an hour in the wrong direction, we still made it in time to catch one our favorite worship leaders, Chris Tomlin. We love the music, the speakers, and especially camping. Before we even left home we had said this was our last time going to Creation. By the end of our trip we were getting ready to order our tickets for 2012. It's a tradition we want to keep in our family.
The speakers talked about what has the power over you. What funeral did you need to have that night so that you could move closer to Jesus. What was first in your life? It could be something good, even your children. Although God calls us to love our children, HE is to be first. I know that I've been putting things before God not doing it intentionally. The children are a big part of that, and its a hard balance when I'm centered around them daily. I do know that when I do put HIM first everything else falls into place. We are so blessed to have had this opportunity to share as a family.
