Lakewood Church

We are looking for a church here in Houston and this weekend we decided to try Lakewood church, the biggest congregation of the nation (very close to my house)
I though if I was wearing something comfy like my jeans capris and flip flops I was going to be comfortable and I could walk to get my daughters to all her classes and not be limping with my feet hurting. I told my husband “it is so huge that nobody will even notice us”
I was so wrong! We ask directions and an usher lead us everywhere, up to get my 8 year old, down to get my babies, to the sanctuary… all the sudden I see him talking to my husband, I couldn’t hear because the band was playing and Eric said, we are going to the front.
We were ushered to the front by different people (security), it was so surreal.
And there I was, on my everyday clothes surrounded by VERY well dress people and almost next to Joel and Victoria Osteen. Then my husband told me that I was on the screen for a long time while worshiping so next week you may see me on TV.
It was a surreal experience, but good. We liked it a lot.
I got a little footage with my cell phone.

Oh my goodness Adri!!! That is so awesome and amazing!!! I would love to get a chance to go to one of his services one day!! I subscribe to Joel's video podcasts, so I'll be sure to be on the lookout for you on next week's broadcast! How awesome to live close enough to attend Lakewood Church! I had no idea you lived in Houston. Guess I wasn't paying close enough attention. LOL!

I drove past Lakewood just the other day headed to Rice Village. I go to church at Second Baptist on Voss. We attend the Saturday night service and love it. I wear jeans and flip flops pretty much every weekend and I fit right in. I don't think God cares what you have on but that you are there to fellowship with Him. YAY jeans and flips!

Oh wow! How exciting!!! You must know what a fan I am of Joel Osteen! I listen to him every week on the podcast as I paint. I just love him! You are so lucky to be able to see them in person. And right up close too!
