When He Moves Among Us!

This weekend was nothing more than amazing!

About this time every year my Mother's family has two family reunions one for each side of their family and in the same location. (Which I am very happy about it is very convenient) We went to the first one on Saturday and had a great time visiting with family and eating some great food. Then we went home and got ready for church for the next day was the Lord's day and another reunion in the afternoon.

We dropped in on Bro. White at Main Street Baptist Church and enjoyed a great Sunday school lesson that encouraged us to keep fighting the good fight and loving others!  Then I was asked to play the piano by my brother Andy who goes to church there. It was fun to be his pianist again like the old days back at Skyline when my Dad used to Pastor. After that we were called on to sing a few songs for the church. It was fun to add to their service and be with my brother and his family in worship. The zildren even got to go back with their Uncle Andy and enjoy his Sunday school room.

In the afternoon we traveled down the road again to the other family reunion and had some great food from some great cooks once again. Then we were huggin and visitin and once again had fun watching the reunion auction. Right before it was over my Mom told my husband that she wanted us to sing so right before everyone left my husband Lonnie got up and told the people not to leave yet because we would like to sing to them and many of them sat back down and we were privileged to sing to our family for a little while. My Aunt Patsy took some pictures of us and I am sharing them with you. Just remember we weren't all dressed for church most of the kids were in their running outside and climbing trees clothes.






That night we were scheduled to be at Calvary Baptist in Killeen, Bro. Sullivan's church. He wanted us to take the whole service and sing. Lonnie gave a devotional message of encouragement between each song and the spirit of God came down and filled the church. It was a really great experience to feel God's presence working in the service and encouraging hearts. The people were blessed and we had such a wonderful time basking in Gods spirit.

Then afterward we had to take a look at their new building project next door. The building is going to be very nice and a great tool in God's hands but I am saddened to know that the old building where I have had so many great memories of a childhood gone by is going to be removed because it is deteriorating. I spent many days as a child going to fellowships chasing around that church building with other preacher's kids and friends after inspiring sermons from great men of God!

Thank you Calvary Baptist for allowing us to come and share our ministry with you!
