Today is a very happy day for me. I know there is a difference in joy and happiness, but today I have had the privilege of having both. I am going into my second week of prayer with the Lord and I am anticipating it being incredible.
After church we went to my friend and fellow parishioner’s restaurant for the “Blue Plate Special” (just like on ‘The Andy Griffith Show‘). It was yummy…hamburger steak and gravy, homemade mashed potatoes, corn, homemade rolls, fried okra, and banana pudding cake or “Soapapilla” cheesecake…if you got one you could have the other, too for just fifty cents. It is a place where everyone is your neighbor, they know you by name, and they sit with you and chat while you eat as though you are family. It is just a small town, warm, homey atmosphere!
We came home for football, friends stopping in, and another great service followed tonight. I am so grateful for my pastor, my church family, and the move of the Holy Spirit we have there. The messages my pastor preached was right on target and I gleaned so much from them.
I am off to bed soon, and as I go I go with a big smile on my face and a warm feeling in my heart! God is good and I am so grateful for His love for me and my family! God bless you, sweet reader!
