a small country church
lots of people
a little warm inside
“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 “
“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!
