On Sunday we invited folks from the congregation to join us for the anthem. We ended up with 28 people singing “I’ll Fly Away.” An amazing joyful noise!
On Monday we had a lovely visit with Floyd and Missy Page and their son Sam. Mom knew Missy when they worked together in Rochelle, Illinois back in the mid-1970’s. They have remained great friends all this time. Mom was so excited to see them.
Sunday morning a friend took this picture of a wanna-be visitor! He said the squirrel stayed at the window for most of the service. I can’t help but remember the old song “Mississippi Squirrel Revival”!
You’d think at his age (63) Dave would eat his peas, but he manages to pick them out no matter how I make them. These happened to be in chicken fried rice. I just shake my head, not much more I can do.
On Thursday our son Scott and his family lost their dog. It was an accident at home, and they are broken hearted. She was such a love bug, she will be missed.
Friday night was so much fun! Our pastor’s granddaughter Isabella (Izzy) was part of her middle school’s production of “Beauty and the Beast”. She was a whisk in the banquet scene and the entire production was just amazing!
She and her grandparents, and one of the show’s directors, sing in our church choir. I love living in a smaller town where we have the opportunity to do things like this.
