A GREAT DAY AT "FAITH"












THIS IS A PICTURE OF FOUR OF
THE BOYS IN MY SUNDAY SCHOOL
CLASS. THREE WERE OUT SICK.

HERE WE HAVE BRANDON AND
BEN ON THE FRONT ROW AND
JORDON AND KENDALL ON THE
BACK ROW.

THE LESSON THAT I BROUGHT
WAS FROM I SAMUEL.

THE ARMIES WERE LINED UP
ON BOTH SIDES. MEN WERE
BUILDING UP THEIR COURAGE
BY SCREAMING AND POUNDING
THEIR SWORDS AND SPEARS UPON
THEIR SHIELDS.
ARROWS BEGAN TO FLY THROUGH
THE AIR UNTIL THE SUN WAS
DARKENED. THE ARROWS FELL
AND HIT THEIR MARK. MEN AND
ANIMALS FELL TO THE EARTH,
CRYING OUT IN PAIN.
SOLDIERS FOUGHT HAND TO HAND
WITH DOUBLE EDGED SWORDS
AND ARMS AND HANDS WERE CUT
FROM VICTIMS BODIES. BLOOD SPRAYED
LIKE WATER FROM A GARDEN HOSE.
MEN PRAYED TO DIE.
(AND THAT WAS ONLY THE FIRST VERSE)

THE MORNING SERVICE WAS WONDERFUL
AND A NEW FAMILY JOINED OUR CHURCH.











HARRISON CAME HOME WITH US.

HE WANTED TO EAT LUNCH AT THE
"ASIAN BUFFETT"
MAW-MAW TOLD HIM THAT THE
CHICKEN ON A STICK WAS ACTUALLY
A "CAT LEG". HE HAD NOT BEEN HOME
TOO LONG LAST NIGHT UNTIL WE GOT
A PHONE CALL FROM KRISTI.
SHE WANTED TO KNOW JUST WHAT
IT WAS HE ATE FOR LUNCH.

I DID THE ONLY THING A PAW-PAW
IN HIS RIGHT MIND COULD DO......
I BLAMED IT ALL ON MAW-MAW.











WHILE AT LUNCH, I SPIED ANOTHER
COUPLE FROM CHURCH.
BRENDA AND CLIFFORD.

CLIFFORD SAID THAT SHE HAD
A BIRTHDAY YESTERDAY. HE SAID
THAT SHE HAD TURNED "51" (LIE)
I TOLD HER THAT SHE DID NOT
look 51, and then......

HAVE YOU EVER SEEN A WOMAN
SNEAR WITH FOOD SQUIRTING OUT
OF BOTH SIDES OF HER MOUTH?
(HAPPY BIRTHDAY BRENDA-41)












AFTER A VERY SHORT NAP,
WE HEADED BACK FOR MORE.

I MUST SAY, THE WHOLE DAY WAS
A SPIRITUAL JET RIDE.


WHEN I WALKED INTO THE LOBBY,
I RAN ACROSS THE PATH OF ONE
OF THE FINEST GUITAR PLAYERS
THAT I HAVE EVER HEARD.
HE PLAYED CHORDS I HAD
NEVER HEARD BEFORE.











HIS NAME IS DARRYL WEAVER.
HE IS FROM GEORGIA AND HAD
STOPPED BY OUR CHURCH FOR
THE EVENING SERVICE.

THE SPIRIT OF GOD WAS ALL
OVER HIS SINGING AND PLAYING.

SEVERAL NUMBERS AND IT
JUST GOT BETTER.


THE ADULT CHOIR SANG AND
THE USHERS TOOK UP THE
OFFERING.

ANNOUNCEMENTS WERE MADE
AND (PUT YOUR SEAT-BELTS ON)
HERE CAME THE FAITH YOUTH CHOIR.

IT WAS A WONDERFUL DAY ALL WAY
AROUND. PREACHER GOODMAN NEVER
LOST AN OPPORTUNITY TO BRING OUT
THE SCRIPTURE AND EXPOUND ON IT.

I CAME HOME AND COULD NOT BELIEVE
THE LIFTING SPIRIT THAT I HAD
BROUGHT BACK WITH ME.

I WISH YOU HAD BEEN THERE.

LOVE, POP
