Picture Review

Friend and Family Day at Church
We enjoyed a wonderful morning service of singing, preaching, fellowshipping, and eating.

This is Mrs. Melba, our church pianist and our adopted grandmother. She is so kind to our family. She spoils us all. Every week she brings the kids a big bag of individually wrapped M&M's for their lunch boxes. So, everyday they get a little bag of M&M's from Mrs. Melba.

That night we had a good old-fashioned singin' time. We had over 15 specials. The kids (minus Justus) sang with Aaron and I. This picture is actually of our practice time before church. Asher did sing with us during the service. We sang "Here Am I, Lord." We are trying to have them sing with us as often as possible.
This is Mrs. Pearl. I had to throw her picture in here too. She is in her 70's and usually just this quiet little old lady who sits in the back of the church. BOY! Can she really play this bass!! She is part of a group called "Gloryland Singers." She surprised us all.

The church surprised us with this gift on Friend and Family Day. It was beautifully displayed for all to see. I wasn't able to get a picture of that before it was all taken down that night. We now have it hanging above our piano.
