Epic February – A Trip to Nashville

We are up early on a Saturday morning, about to take our Gracie to this place.IMG_6828

For months, Grace has prepared herself for this day. Today, in Nashville, my Gracie will play her bassoon in front of some faculty at Belmont University, to see if she will be granted entrance into the music program (and hopefully given a scholarship of some sorts).

Nashville has been a place that my husband has been coming to for 21 years for his work at Compassion. A lot of his team live here, and many of our dearest friends. It’s  a place that is full of music, and creative types, it’s no wonder Grace feels a sense of home here.DSC_6437

Our entire family came along to support this girl. Julia was the surprise guest this weekend though. My husband happened to be celebrating his birthday on the day we are were to arrive, so I was very sneaky and cashed in some miles to get her a ticket to come with us, not only to surprise Steve, but to make sure Grace had the full team of support we could offer.


DSC_6446Its definitely an epic type of weekend.

Now I figure it’s up to God what happens next. I have let go of trying to try and control this process of college and auditions, and I won’t be able to be in the room with Gracie this morning as she plays her bassoon. I know she is going to do great, because the girl knows how to perform, and she often performs the best under pressure.

I am still in a bit of denial at the thought of her going off to college in the fall, and being far from home. Belmont isn’t the only option on the table though, but she is pretty excited about this place, so I am trusting God with this girl of mine knowing he will direct her paths. I am trusting God.  Please pray for my girl this morning as she does her thing.
