Joy is an understatement!

For years now I've always wanted to attend the Night of Joy at Disney World. It's actually TWO nights of joy.....two nights of awesome Christian bands from about 7pm-1am. This year I went and it was one of the greatest experiences of my life! I went expecting concerts, and left after having some of the best worship times I've ever had. I uploaded some pictures in the pic section. Here are some videos, but I'm sad to say that it was just too loud for my poor little camera's mic to handle, so the audio is horrible. But you can still hear what they're singing. It's just distorted. Anyway, here are some vids!

Here is Barlow Girl. These chicks rock. When I grow up, I want to be just like them. And I loved the words they spoke between songs.

Here is Casting Crowns! I've always been a fan, and I love their music...but Saturday night was indescribable while they were on stage. I can't even begin to explain it. Anyway, we decided to miss out on some other bands and stay for Casting Crowns again.

Chris Tomlin was actually the first one we saw. We were fortunate enough to be able to stand right in front of the stage. After that concert though, the powers that be made everyone go back into the stands...but this was also an awesome time of worship.

I was soooo excited to see MercyMe. But this is when the security people decided that we could no longer stand by the stage. They made people go sit. The only seats left were the ones on the very end. You couldn't even see the whole stage :-( So we stood by the exit and watched as best as we could....

Tobymac was last, but certainly not least! This man is crazy, in a good way. It was like one giant dance party in the stands while they were up there. I didn't want it to end. We would have stayed for the 2nd show, but it didn't start til 12:30am and we had a 90 minute drive back to my dad's house.(turn your speakers down for this one. The bass turned out awful.)

I would have liked to see more bands, but it was hard to plan. We wanted good seats for the people we really liked, so we had to miss some other ones. Oh well. It was totally worth it. I want to go every year!
