Worship, Worship, Worship

Janie practicing with the Jr. choir this afternoon
Janie displays these in the guest bathroom every year and I like them.
Today was about worship.  It started before 6:00 with a phone call from the nursing home saying that they were taking Janie's dad to the emergency room.  This drove us to prayer which is an act of worship.  We had outstanding services this morning well attended and several visitors.  I taught the Sunday School lesson to a smaller than normal group.  The rain kept some from coming to church.  We had a guest speaker who preached about the prodigal son during the worship service.  This afternoon we went to a nursing home for services and when we arrived there was no one in the chapel area.  Janie began to play the piano and before you know it we had a congregation of nine.  They really sang out with a lot of joy and that fired me up for the preaching time.  I preached them a Gospel message and then visited with them a bit before heading over to the church house.  I got things set up for the evening services and then we went home and talked with Jason over in France.  They are doing well.  We are all the more anxious to see them.  We had to say good bye to them to head back to church.  The evening services were also well attended and the business meeting after the worship service went smoothly.  Janie and watched a video of our grandkids while we ate supper.  All in all it has been a really good day.  God bless you.
