Happy New Year

Monday, October 15, 2007


Last night I went to church. The little church here has Sunday night service at 7:00 and I had never attended.

Ron put up the chickens for me and took care of the dog so I was free to go on my sudden impulse. Thankfully it is a come-as-you-are service. (I did wash up a bit so I wouldn't smell!)

The minister had told me that usually 10-12 people attended. Last night there were nine of us.

The program is to sing hymns of choice out of the old Cokesbury Hymnal. I believe I know all those song by heart. The minister then has a brief message to share. It is an old fashioned service of preachin' and singin'.

We sang five or six songs and I could hear the voices of the 9 talented as well as the tone deaf and then I began to hear the soft sweet voice of my mother and dad's booming voice.

What a beautiful way to end one week and start another -- in the company of angels.


  1. A beautiful way indeed!

  2. Amen! I know exactly what you mean!
