First Dateaversary 

Four years ago today we went out on our first date together to a Casting Crowns concert.  That makes today what we call our First Dateaversary.

Casting Crowns had been Ed’s favorite Christian rock band for several years.  Their songs lifted his spirits at some of the worst times of his life.  He got two tickets to the concert and saw an opportunity to ask Leslie out to a special event.  
Little did he know that Casting Crowns was also Leslie’s favorite Christian rock band.

While we were waiting to enter the concert we ran into a couple of friends from church who had better seats than our ticket seating.  

Our friends also had backstage passes, and a couple of extra backstage passes, and invited us to join them to meet the band after the show!

Here we are with lead singer Mark Hall (far right) and other band members (left).  

And here are a few comics that Ed made subsequently that captured the essence of the experience.

Some things you can plan a long time for. 

But even when things work out as well as you could hope for, sometimes God pulls some strings and works them out even better than you could have possibly hoped for.
