I went to the Austin and Beaumont Make A Difference shows with a big group of Gomer friends. Most of us live in Texas, but we had a couple of fly-ins, one from Arkansas and one from Arizona. We met other Gomer friends at the venues. There were about a dozen of us at any given time. It was quite a party!
I had not seen Third Day in concert in a year, so I was really looking forward to breaking the fast with these shows.
Both were so much fun, but the Beaumont show was extra special. First, we got to have an impromptu WIRED party with Third Day, which was very special and unforgettable. What could be better than a getting to spend time with the guys of Third Day while eating chips, salsa, queso, and guacamole from Pappasito's?
Plus, they shook up the set list a little. They took out three songs from the night before ("Lift Up Your Face", "Cry Out to Jesus", and "Call My Name") and added four songs, including a couple of songs we requested, namely "Creed" and "Make Your Move"! I was sad not to hear "Lift Up Your Face" again, but I love that funky bass intro to "Make Your Move"! It's such a rockin' song! It's awesome on the record, but live It's beyond awesome. I was so excited, I thought I might just explode or fly or something! I couldn't dance hard enough or sing loud enough to keep up with the enthusiasm I was feeling. I can't wait to hear it again in the spring! I hope it becomes a staple for years to come!
