On Sunday Melissa and I went to Worship on the Waterfront. I love going to the boardwalk and just walking around, but I also like to go to WOW on Sunday nights and enjoy the company of other Christians and the time to worship together. It makes you realize how good we have it in the US that we are able to worship our Lord out in public without fear of harm.

Jadon Lavik was the artist and we were really glad that we went. Some of his songs are played on JQ, like Changing Happy and What If. He has such a pure voice. You can tell that he really believes what he is singing.

After he left, we stayed for the musical fountain and were glad that we stayed and waited almost an hour to see it. We had both seen it before, but it is always so beautiful, that it is worth the wait.

We had left during the concert to get some ice cream and when we got back to our seats and got settled in again a woman came with her 4 year old son and sat down next to me. She then introduced herself and her son to me, and I thought, "This is odd; people don't usually introduce themselves when they sit next to someone." She then reached into her sons pocket and pulled out a pump, just like mine, color and all. She proceded to tell me that she had seen me walk by on our way back to our seats and she said the her son, "Look, that girl has a pump just like you!" Her son, who was adorable, told her that he wanted to go show me his pump, so they followed me to my seat and we talked for a little while. I was surprised at how well they handled it. He was only 2 when he was diagnosed, 3 when he got the pump, and he is only 4 now. They always keep it locked because he likes to hit the buttons sometimes. I thought that it was so cute that he was so excited to show me his pump. I do love to see other people with pumps. It is nice to talk to them and find out how they do things and just talk to them, as someone who understands exactly what I am going through.

Glad you had fun and wasn't it a neat thing that you met them? I'm sure you were a blessing to them too, especially the Mom. It had to be nice to see someone older who is doing well with her pump.

Wow- we were down there in the afternoon! We saw them setting up and I mentioned that I had never heard of the singer. I'm glad he was good.
That's so cool about the little boy- I'm sure they were impressed with you too!

Awww. I bet he was cute. That's funny that they have to lock it - he probably forgets and thinks it's a video game!

I'm sure it was nice for them to see you doing well with it.

Glad you had fun at the Waterfront too!
