Driving home from TheBig Ticket Festival I was meditating on all that happened this weekend. Wow, a lot flowing through my head. The Spirit of God sure worked in the lives of everyone there.
The smiles on the faces of people as I walked by them was a testimony to the power of a festival like this. Some may have walked in sad, hurt, sorrowful, but as each day was filled with love, joy, peace, ect… They could not help but turn that frown to a smile.
As I write this my husband changed his cover photo to “A Start of a New Journey”. That’s it, that is what happened this weekend. It was a time of refreshing, a time of new beginnings, a new direction, “A NEW JOURNEY”.
There were some on the outside that complained calling it “Big Ticket Noise Pollution”
The Aftermath of the Big Ticket Festival resulted in lives changed, families strengthened, lives saved, & so much more.
People were standing in the middle of the crowd praying for each other, hugging each other, laughing, & so much more. A positive outcome. So what is wrong with that?
People on the outside will not understand the peace on the inside…. They will persecute them any chance they get.
Galatians 4:29 But, as he who was born according to the flesh then persecuted him who was born according to the Spirit, even so it is now.
The festival encourages families to connect with each other and God in a fun atmosphere. “We’re together with our family whether we like it or not and what we kind of want to do here is create an environment where families can connect but bond spiritually not just bond by entertainment,” says Drew Spanding, president of the festival.
The atmosphere for friends & family is great. Families were Sitting around a fire, cooking marshmallows, & laughing, what a great family time.

We are looking forward to next year and we are hoping to bring some others with us. And thank you for the patriotic show as a veteran (2001-2007) of both Iraq and Afghanistan it felt good to see the flag that my brothers and sisters past and present defended honorably, waving triumphantly. Thanks again and God Bless.
