Michael Bublé finally back on tour

Michael Bublé
, the multi-Grammy winning multi-platinum entertainer, is scheduled to re-start his hugely successful tour beginning in Jacksonville, Florida on August 13th with stops in Boston, San Francisco, Las Vegas and other major markets. A full schedule of tour dates follows this release. Tickets are on sale now and all previously purchased tickets will be honored.

“I couldn’t be more excited to get back on the road to entertain my fans live and in person. When my touring family last performed, we did not know when or if we would ever get the chance to get back on stage. Like the rest of the world, this has been a very emotional time. During this past year, I loved being a full-time dad but I missed what felt like a party every night where we were able to celebrate the best way I know how, ‘singing my songs to you.’ It seems more important than ever that we can share the music as we all heal from this past year. I can’t wait to see everyone,” commented Bublé.

Bublé is currently in the studio working on a new album scheduled for release next year. This Christmas will be the 10th anniversary of the release of his historic multi-platinum Christmas album.

Helping others by hearing God

Watching the rain bands come and go (Hurricane Elsa came and went without any damage near us here in northern FL). Our hummingbird even dropped by to let me know that everything is going to be alright.

God is so great. I had a wonderful time ministering to a Lady on the phone who I didn’t know. If you’ve ever called a company, and don’t get an answer right away, you could wait a bit. Instead of using my computer, I wanted to explain what I wanted to a person. I tenaciously stayed on an automated call for 1 hour/33min (got some laundry and ironing done while waiting). After hanging up I called the number again and a young man picked up after a 3 minute wait. That’s when I got transferred right away to a lovely Lady. I took my time and explained why I called. I wasn’t rude and I needed to explain that some older people need to be helped by a timely phone call. I could hear her typing all my information and concerns.

Some kind of way, we started talking about the COVID vaccine and how we both had our shots, yet she didn’t go out much. She too wears a mask out in public even though the mask mandate has been lifted in Las Vegas where she works from her home. She let me know that she felt anxious when wearing a mask. I was led to pray for her and she received the prayer and let me know that she was a Christian and that our meeting was not by chance, but Devine appointment.

Even though I lost time out of my day, it was not wasted. I did what God wanted me to do and got my laundry done. 

After praying for our safety from the storm and thanking God for safe travels, it’s time to get some dinner and relax. Have a good evening and a blessed week.
