We met these incredible people this summer at #sonshinefest, and on our way back from South Dakota we stopped by for one of the most unexpectedly wonderful nights of the tour. Underneath a church in Menomonie, WI resides #blindmunchies, a coffee house with those #americanpicker sort of signs everywhere. Tom and Becky run the place, and their heart is for college students at the university in town. We were absolutely floored by the turnout and the participation: what we thought would be a chill worship night with 15 or 20 turned into a full on worship singalong with almost 100 that packed the place out.
Finishing up the American tour this week, I’m reminded of those unexpected moments that go so far beyond your expectations. I’ve learned on this 6 week journey through America to enjoy the ride more than I have ever done before. I’ve become more thankful for surprises—good and bad—learning to simply receive them as part of the adventure and value them for what they are.
Again, it all comes down to character I guess… God doing something in us that is good and makes us more at ease in His love for us and our love for both Him and others. Grateful for wonderful nights like this Monday in Menomonie that restore my soul.
