i’m leaving on tour for 4 weeks.
i honestly can’t even think too much about it. i just put stetson down for his nap, and as i was walking him back to his room i realized this is the last time i’m going to do that for 30 days. i don’t know how i’m going to do it. i can’t stand the thought of being away from my family. i really do hate it. i don’t know how i will make it four weeks. but i will. it’s the sacrifices you make in life that create something great.
this isn’t just a tour we are going on. these aren’t just songs we play.
i know the music is going to touch people because it touches me. i wouldn’t be playing with john mark if it didn’t. something happens to me every time i hear him sing “the love of god is stronger than the power of death”. i know that people need to experience it. that’s why i do this. that’s why i’m leaving my family for a month. every night i walk on stage i will have made a huge sacrifice. i know that something great is going to happen because of it.
that’s a real sacrifice of praise.
so if you come up to me and i’m moody. or don’t really talk much. or i’m crying. or i’m out of my mind. or i’m hilariously delirious. it’s not because i’m a jerk. it’s because i’ve been on the road a long time. it’s because being on the road is hard. it’s because being away from your family is hard.
having said that; this tour is going to be unreal. nights of epic proportions. you should be there. you should bring someone.
