Sunday night I ventured over to Savannah’s beautiful Ardsley Park neighborhood to attend the House Concert (doesn’t that sound hip?) featuring singer/songwriter Amy Steinberg.
What a joyfully encouraging evening!
I got the invite from good buddy/socialite/singer-in-her-own-right/kindred spirit Jamie Marie Smith:
The night started with a potluck before the concert. I brought crescent rolls. Apparently, fairly powerful rolls.

I LOVE the message in Amy”s music: we’re all GREAT the way we are, we should ENJOY these moments of our lives and WE SHOULD LOVE (at least that was my take-away.)

Just look at the titles of a few of her other song gems: “Yes,” “Beautiful in Me,” “Hope,” “I Am Enough,” “Shine,” and “Run, Don’t Walk.” I sat there entranced, feeling as though the essence of my blog had been set to music. And as the evening continued, I realized that Amy didn’t just sing about abundant joy–she personified it.
