Okay, I don't know about any of you, but for me I feel like I was just taking down my Christmas tree and suddenly, without warning, it is March…. the hint of spring in the air…March madness…St. Patrick's Day…and on those few warm days that sneak in between the cold, the age old question for all women — when can I start to wear open-toed shoes again…followed quickly by the realization that to do so I need a pedicure! (sorry guys!)
So here we are – March – and I feel like the year has just begun and that our 09 plan for Amy Grant still has plenty of time to take shape and be revealed, yet the calendar is reminding me that time is ticking by faster than any of us would want it to.
I know I continue to "hint" at big announcements…. and for those of you who have ventured a guess on the June 8th date being the concert for "Challenge America" at the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C…. you are right. We will be announcing the line up of guests in the next week and when tickets go on sale but it promises to be an incredible night of music and message.
Another big "FOA" announcement is still pending while we work out a few details, but I can tell you that it is NOT the anticipated "Lead Me On 20th Anniversary" live dvd taping. As much as we would love to capture that show on film, the numbers don't make sense and so it is something we are going to have to put on the back burner.
So as we roll out the welcome mat for spring my hope for all of us is a renewed sense of passion for life and an appreciation of the passage of time and the changes it brings. As the saying goes, "To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven." May we welcome this season of change with hope in the things to come…
