Truth : When was the last time you cried?
I last cried on Sunday, October 12th around 10:15pm
Caroline and I went to see the world premiere musical of “Amazing Grace” at the Bank of America Theater in Chicago. It’s the story of John Newton… the man who wrote the famous song in 1772. I won’t tell you all the details of the musical, just know it is a powerful story of redemption of one of Christianity’s most powerful conversions. Pick up the book “Out of the Depths” for a good read.
If you know me very well… you know I have two favorite songs…
The Star Spangled Banner
Both songs bring tears to my eyes… especially when children sing them. But on Oct 12th… when a host of professional actors and actresses sing all 5 verses of Amazing Grace… it’s was overwhelming. Amazing words… from a guy with an amazing story. #tears
I also cried during the Amazing Grace musical a few weeks ago. It was SO good. If it comes to your area, it is a must see!
Before that, the last time I cried was while I was writing about the one thing I regret for Day 3 of this series.
While I was thinking about my Grandmother Pete & the memories surrounding that weekend, putting those thoughts to words for you to read, brought tears to my eyes.
