That table that was next to me were Joni's books that she was giving away.
This was Burt Kettinger's table (right across from mine) of CD's he was selling.
This was my table, which contained info about our church and Christian school, as well as books and CD's I've written.
My pastor's wife Nancy Atkinson and I, with our usual goofy selfies!
One of our favorite families, the Bennetts, were also in attendance, with some of their CD's, and also info for Hope Pregnancy Center.
A look down the hall at some of the ministry tables.
My best friend Nancy Atkinson! We had a fun evening together!
She was talking with her hands, not getting ready to choke this lovely lady! LOL!
Notice the chimes - these were really cool for people to try them. It represented our school's (and church's) chimes choirs.
The Bennett's table.
It was a great crowd! We had a wonderful dinner, and was fun getting to know some new people, and run into some old friends as well!
Burt Kettinger sang some beautiful songs that comforted my soul and drew me closer to the Lord.
Joni Earickson Tada - she made me laugh, made me cry, and warmed my heart.
In two weeks it is her birthday, so many people brought her a birthday card. I also put in there with my card my Beauty in Pain album; I hope it will be a blessing to her.
She was gracious enough to pose for many pictures. That's her husband Ken next to her. He was so good with her, as she has some physical needs at times when she's speaking, such as help getting into a position so she can cough/clear her throat adequately. She said such a wonderful thing: "Humiliation is the quickest path to humility. God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble!" (James 4:6) Aren't you glad?
