Day 19 – The Blind Side

23 Apr

I spent the afternoon securing my replacement iPhone (mine was stolen about a month ago) and I can’t even begin to describe my happiness and sheer bliss at having it back. Once I got over the separation anxiety at the thought of leaving it at home with Christopher so he could put all the apps back on it, I headed to Northside Christian Church to hear the beginning of their “Desire to Inspire” campaign. Their guest speakers for the night were Leigh Anne and Sean Tuohy who were depicted in the fantastic movie The Blind Side, and it was truly amazing listening to their story.

As excited as I was to listen about the Tuohy’s experience with Michael Oher and turning their life story into a book and then a movie, the real inspiration came from the music performed by the church band before the evenings guests even took the stage. Music is one of the best reasons to visit a church and there is no lack of talent at Northside, with a mixture of rock and contemporary I promise you I could spend all night listening to them play.

And of course I had to include a photo of the Tuohy’s on stage. Again, it was amazing to hear their story and just listen to them talk about the value of a person even when the world doesn’t see it. It wasn’t about God or church it was just about seeing the worth in someone and that is a message we can all learn from. I truly appreciated the opportunity to hear them speak.

    Cool event! Sounds like an uplifting evening.

    As an aside, I always find it funny when they put the plexiglass barrier around the drum kit. I keep expecting to see the sign “DO NOT FEED THE DRUMMER!” πŸ˜‰

    Man that’s such a good movie. It’s awesome to hear that they were so great in person. I would have loved to hear the music. From the pictures it looks like it was an amazing time.

    I’m just reading the book now, haven’t seen the movie yet! I can imagine it would inspire you to take a picture!
