Vic and Doris Wilson will have their 46th wedding anniversary in August, but the couple decided to celebrate early with a trip to Nashville.
“We saw an advertisement about this Gospel Singing event in our Open Windows (LifeWay’s daily devotional magazine),” Vic said. “We both love gospel music, so I asked Doris if she wanted to go to Nashville in April.”
“I thought that sounded great,” Doris said. “I think of Nashville as country music, but there is all kinds of good music here.”
The time of year made a difference too.
The Wilsons live in Lake City, Fla., and August is hot.
“I don’t like to get out when it’s so hot,” Doris said. “August is an awful time to travel, but we knew April would be cool. Spring is such a pretty time of year. So, we decided to just celebrate early!”
This was the first time for the Wilsons to attend a Lifeway gospel singing event, but both said it won’t be their last.
“We have had such a wonderful time,” Vic said. “Just loved every minute of it. We have met some really great people.”
An added plus for Vic, a long-time Sunday school teacher at Wellborn Baptist Church, was he was able to see where his Sunday school materials come from.
“I don’t teach out of anything but Lifeway material,” he said. “It’s good solid Bible teaching with lots of helps for the teachers. A teacher has to study and prepare to do a good job, but the Lifeway material lets you know how to do that. Now I’ve seen where it comes from.”
