sing me home

picture this…

 

a small country church

lots of people

a little warm inside

music

“take my hand. precious Lord”

the smell of casserole coming from the fellowship hall just downstairs

a band setting up on a flatbed trailer outside

three people stand up and start singing acapella from their seats

the pastor asks the mom with the most kids to stand up

the pastor asks the youngest mom to stand up

the pastor asks the mom with the most kids present to stand up

(they all get gifts)

four part harmonies around an upright piano that an awesome woman is playing in the corner

a tambourine playing on the front row of the choir

sitting so close to the person next to you that you can hardly breathe

all your family is there 

ladies and gentlemen… on the organ… Mr. Harvey Brock wearing a plaid suit

“the old rugged cross”

“because He lives”

“i’ll fly away”

20 minute alter call

“softly & tenderly “

tears

“i see that hand”

finally eating that casserole you have been smelling for hours

going outside in the heat to listen to some southern gospel

one day there will be a great reunion

Don’t Forget… no service tonight…

It’s Mother’s Day.

 

just thought i would share some of my memories for you guys. 

I Love You Mommy!

Happy Mother’s Day!
