    vivien + george’s first recording/music video… 

    this has been TOO long in the making!
    vivien being a gifted and anointed worship leader for many years at her former church, ecc, and myself leading worship for the last 16+ years at my father’s church and then at quest (though currently on a sabbatical – will be writing more about this shortly)… we’ve always dreamt and talked about recording together.
    now with a baby on the way, we felt even more compelled to start (even if it’s as simple as this video).
    especially as we are in the midst of “dark friday“, this song rushed back all the wonderful memories vivien + i experienced when we sung this powerful song and how Christ is truly worthy alone to be praised for the sacrifice He made.
    praise God from whom all blessings flow… hope you are blessed:

    where in the world… (part 3)? 

    are viv + i?
    bonjour mon ami…” from southern france!

    using rick steves’ provence & the french riviera guidebook (a.k.a. our “other” bible in southern france), vivien outlined a tour de southern france via our avis rental car: an opel. definitely a different experience for me… cause when i vacation, i tend to stay in one hotel/location for the duration of the stay and take a taxi. the long, windy and scenic roads from town to town were pretty fun to drive.

    bonjour from hotel negresco in nice! le'g+v...

    not knowing what to expect for the city driving/parking conditions, it was crazy and stressful! the streets were SO narrow and often-times one-way and it was shared by cars, bicyclists, scooters, cats and dogs all at the same time! in most intersections, they had these roundabouts that were a bit confusing as well… and just required you to pretty much close your eye and jump into the circle of death and drive around until you find the right road to get off to! you just had to pay attention to the many arrowed signs and pray you chose the right one!

    when in doubt... always head toward "centre ville"...

    driving stats:

    • total distance driven: 1234km = 766.772 miles
    • total spent on diesel: €106 euros = $158.73 USD
    • total number of swear words dropped: 11mutha F-bombs” 😐

    thank the Lord that there were so many things to ease my driving stress… paellas, poissons and pâtisseries, oh my!  😀

      George — beautiful pictures and fun commentary =). You’re brave for renting a car and driving for so long. What an amazing experience.
