So, we give all glory to God for our house closing Friday!
We are safe and we are re-establishing ourselves in the city of our youth. The kids have been over alot and have brought some of the “grands” over. We are blessed.
I thought we’d continue to plow through our many boxes, but hubby said we should go to church yesterday. Ummmmm, ok. We have our clothes. I haven’t found my box that says “Lori’s shoes” yet, but, I’ll find it eventually. I asked my hubby which church we’d go to. He said the one we used to go to. Ummmmmm, ok, again. It’s a good church and the pastor preaches amazingly. He hears from God.
We arrived in the parking lot and were recognized immediately. It was as if the last 9 years away, in another state, hadn’t happened. The same happened at the door. The same happened, with hugs, inside. Awesome! Way to make us feel at home.
It was the day our chorus director from High school was being honored for being the minister of music at the church for 40 years straight. We were invited to the celebration/fellowship later that day. We went and visited, chatted, ate, had a great time. We found out upcoming happenings at the church and it’s as if 9 years never happened. Unbelievable!
We’d been in 2 other states, been to colleges, been involved in many, many things culturally and in churches. We’d had weddings, wakes, births and deaths. We’d had my writings and growth. By golly, we had our learning time, then came back to a place that seemed like we’d not been gone for 9 years at all. God has a sense of humor. We love Him so much……..
