Concerts by Decade

I was talking to Jenny the other day about this concert we both would like to go to, and it got me thinking about how many bands I used to go see live. Man, I spent a lot of money on concerts. So I thought it might be fun to see how many of them I could actually remember—it has been quite a long time, though I didn’t see my first show until I was 20.

God has changed my life, and changed me. It's that simple. I will ever be grateful, and if I live to be...well, OLD, I will never tire of telling people about the work done in my life, and what can be done in theirs, should they trust God with their innermost everything...
