Summer days and updates....

Hey Everyone, So now you have experienced first-hand one of my struggles: procrastination. I have been meaning to update this blog and unfortunately have not until now. So...... here we go.

Updates Updates Updates! We've been hard at work writing songs, letters to churches, making phone calls, and trying to book fall dates. One date we're really excited about is on August 21st, we'll be opening up for grammy nominated artist After Edmund. And I know what you're thinking, "grammy nominated artist? I've never heard of them." Well, whether you have or haven't, they write some great songs. Check them out at (http://www.myspace.com/afteredmund) We go on at 6:30 that night, so come and bring your friends and family for a night of music and fun. Now if you can't make that day, don't worry :) we'll be playing the very next day (the 22nd) for a family festival in marrietta. The time for that is still to be announced, but keep checking our myspace for addresses, times, and more details. Speaking of the myspace......

Wake Today is getting a new myspace. Thanks to our good friend and talented designer, Jo Albright, the WT myspace, will be re-vamped and completed by the first week of august. You can go there now and see the progress (http://www.myspace.com/waketoday). We will also be launching our new website sometime this fall, so keep an eye out for more details in the near future.

In closing of this long overdue update, I want to remind us of the words of Hebrews, chapter 12, as we endure these trying times and see lost jobs, dwindling hope, hard hearts, disbelief, and opposition. ".....let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart." And as we run with perseverance, let us be reminded of the finish line spoken of in 2 Peter chapter 3: "...according to his promise we are waiting for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells." Though we may struggle in this life, a glorious day is coming, the day of eternity with our King, the Creator of all. All that we know will one day pass away and a new earth and a new heaven will be our home. A perfect home for those who follow Him and have placed their faith in Him, with no more hardship, no more tears, no more death, only perfection made by our Savior that we may enjoy Him and life with Him forever. Take heart in the promises of God, they are a firm foundation in these fragile times. You have our prayers. If you want to know more about how to be a part of this glorious eternal gift of life from God, email us and we'll do our best to respond quickly and share that truth with you.

We love to hear your comments, questions, and thoughts, so please feel free to send us an email at waketodaymusic@gmail.com. We'll do our best to respond. Have a great night my friends, it is approaching 3:10am and I have to up in a few hours to go to a wedding. Oh, the benefits of being a night owl.
