Whew! Thanks Grammys!

I was on my way home from the church last night and received a call from my dauhter..."Dad, where are you? Are you on your way home? Mom and I are watching the Grammy's...we've taped it. We think you'll really like it." "Yes, sweetie, I'm on my way there in a minute." "Ok, dad, we're waiting for you before we watch any more." Hmmm. That was interesting. She seemed REALLY excited, but I had no idea why. So I get home, take off my coat, change into my warm-ups, sit on the couch, and they crank up the DVR. First thing out of the shoot is U2 opening the Grammy's, with, you guessed it...Get On Your Boots. It was I understood the phone call...and the excitement. My wife and my daughter just started laughing at me as I stopped bringing my spoon from my bowl of gumbo to my hand was paralyzed, my mouth gaped open. The boys from Dublin did it again...made their faith and their music clear. Through the song there were crosses flashed up on the screen again and again...there was also a point where the crosses merged into stars on an American flag...what a relief! Not only did I enjoy the song, but I was excited to see that my interpretation of their song might actually be on target (see past Blog "U2's New Song). For most people in the Grammy's, the crosses likely didn't mean much, but as Bono often states, as they "draw their fish in the sand" the message is there for people to see.
