Mumford & Dad

Tonight at church the guest speaker was Marcus Mumford's dad. Again, if you know LB and I at all you know that we are borderline obsessed with Mumford; my happy place is listening to Not With Haste envisioning myself walking down the aisle to LB on our wedding day. Further, the happiest day of my life to date has been the Mumford concert at Red Rocks. So. You can imagine that when Marcus' dad got up there to speak, we were floored. His message was beautiful: you need three things to serve Jesus.

Love Jesus. Be alive. And be nervous.

Then our conversation afterwards yielded this gem amongst a lifetime of memories that came from getting to meet Mumford's dad.

The stages of grief are like orbiting planets. Just when you think you've tackled one stage it swings back around gets ya. Take the time to sit and cry. It's important.

To add to the amazingness that happened this evening, on the one year anniversary of Trenton's passing, the Mumford's are hosting a spiritual night at church. Eleanor Mumford: "Come and cry your eyes out."
