Polly's Choir Tour

I (Polly) just got back last weekend from a 10 day trip around the midwestern states of Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Iowa. I went with my choir on tour and had a really fun time! We had two concerts nearly every day with a day off in Springfield, Illinois where we got to go see one of President Lincoln's homes and Lincoln's Tomb. We had another day off in Chicago, Illinois where we just spent the day sight-seeing. After I got back, last Sunday, I spent the next three days sleeping to lick the head cold, chills and fevers I was having. By the time Thursday rolled around, though, I was up and smiling again! One of the songs my choir sang in every concert has a line in it that really described our tour, "no story wave can pull me under." During the days of tour, eight of our group had their money stolen, somewhere around 3/4 of us got sick, tornado warnings went off during one of our concerts, a couple of our group got lost in downtown Chicago...and yet we had an amazing time of growing closer to each other and God! No stormy wave could pull us under.
