October 25th - Phil Wickham & Tenth Avenue North

Drove 5 hours to Cedar Falls with Trang and Annie. 

Pre-Concert Selfie!

FRONT ROW TO THE CONCERT!

Q & A with Tenth Avenue North!


Phil Wickham was amazing. He has a voice of Elvis mixed with angel. When he sang Heaven's song. UGHHH SO BEAUTIFUL.

Tenth Avenue North is amazing we every time them. They have such a strong message. They started with the beginning of their journey as a band to where they are now. 

Sorry I don’t have more pictures/videos, I was wayyy into the concert to have my phone out. 

Moments to forever remember: 

Mike rapping Fresh Prince of Belair

“Haters gonna hate, hate, hate?"

LOSING and JUST GETTING BY are my favorite songs ever and they did awesome twists to the song live! 


“First we want you to know the love of God is over you and underneath you. At the heights of your purity, He went higher. At the depths of your depravity, He went lower. He brings down the proud and lifts up the broken. His love is here. He is by your side. He holds your heart through thick and thin, joy and pain, gain and loss. There is nowhere you can go where He is not. May that get in you. May the light meet the dark. May you realize you are more than your mistakes. He is strong enough to save you, and you don’t have to save yourself. Which means, among other things, you can take your masks off and let the light in. This is where the healing begins. There is healing from trying to prove yourself, freedom from trying to be your own savior, and freedom to admit your struggles. After all, we are free to struggle, but we’re not struggling to be free. And if you get that, then you can begin to be honest. You can admit you feel like losing. You can open up when you feel worn. And best of all, as Philippines 1:30 reminds, we can struggle together. 

Together.

Made in the image of the trinity, we are made for community. We are made to bear each other’s burdens. We are made to reflect the joy and otherness of the divine relationship. We weren’t meant to live this life alone. “No man is an island,” John Donne famouly mused, and so that is our hope. We pray this collection of songs would lead us off our islands of isolation and help us sail by the stars of God’s promises to the shores of communion. Together, we will taste and see God for who He is, and as we do so, we will become his cathedrals to the earth. We will become the dwelling place of His spirit and a sanctuary for sinners. 

In other words, wherever you go, if you are in Christ, you bring Him with you. There is no such thing as a secular place, because wherever you are, you have the sacred inside. All the earth is holy ground. May you feel the weight of His glory with every step you take, for we are His cathedrals.”

-Mike Donehey


So excited for their new album to come out!

We got back at 3am. We had some serious jamming on the way back.

October 10th - In Living Color: Andy Warhol

It’s okay to go to a museum by yourself. People will give you weird looks. They will question what you’re doing. You may be the youngest person there. BUT you get to take as much time as you need to look at a piece of art! There is nothing like walking around and enjoying the surrounding. To just immerse yourself in the culture of a museum. 

Today was the member’s opening to In Living Color: Andy Warhol & Cometmporary Printmaking. I went by myself because I wanted to (and my roommate was busy). I got there in time for the curator to give a lecture. She talked about what artists she choose for the exhibit and how she wanted the set up for the prints to be. It was so interesting to learn about the behind the scenes of getting an art exhibit.

Art is fascinating to me. Seeing so much color, passion, freedom, and expression in Warhol and other artists pieces is amazing. I understand that it seems like Warhol’s artwork is simple and sometimes looks like a 5 year old did it. He started something new with his pieces. He made everyday things stand out and have life. He also planned out the details in his art. Almost all of the details are intentional. I could never be able to do what he did, even the simple pieces. One of my favorite Warhol pieces is the Sunset collection. Where he used one sunset and made 160 different color combinations with it. It’s like magic and beauty all in one. I even got a mini poster of a Sunset for my room!

If you have time check out the exhibit at the Joslyn Art Museum! In Living Color is open til January! 


                                                                    “I like boring things” - Andy Warhol


I bought a Van Gogh book. NO SHAME. I can now look at Starry Night Over the Rhone as much as my heart desires. 


After Josyln, I went to dinner and Target with Libby and Emma. We had a blast at Foodruckers! These girls are amazing. Inside and out. And just amazing everywhere. 

                                                               THE MILKSHAKE WAS SO GOOOOOOD
