So, the header above is from 2012. Ten years ago. Ten years ago this month. I don’t know why I picked it for today, but I did.
I went to church this morning, to my buddy’s church. It was interesting. Really nice. I cried. Quite a bit, actually. So, I suppose that’s a good thing. Okay, service was a bit over an hour long. Probably the first half was all music and singing. But, not singing like normal hymns, although I would call them hymns, but hymns with more of a bit of a Country Western bent to them. Now, that may have been because there was a key board, a couple of electric guitars and a couple of folk guitars, a bass guitar, and a drum set that no one was playing. The words to the hymns were very specific to the theme of the day, which was Peace, with an underlying theme of Grace, and were more like preaching than singing, but were singing and not preaching and I’m not making sense, but that’s the impression that I got.
Anyway, the second half of the service was the Pastor’s sermon expounding on the theme, and talking about his week (there were 3 funerals this week) and about what’s going on next week. His talk made me cry, too. I felt, overwhelmed, but in a good way. A couple of people came up to me and said hello, but not too many. I wasn’t smothered, but I wasn’t overlooked either. Like it was just the right amount.
I liked the church, I liked the people, I liked the message, I really liked the format, and I liked the internal feeling. So, this one gets a second chance next week.
And we’re going to discuss some of the other religious questions that we had with some of our friends in just a little bit, but first, we’ve got to get some laughter going here.

We were out burning ditches when my husband got stung on the forehead by a bee. He’s in the ER now…face all swollen and bruised. He almost died!! He was very lucky because I was close enough to swat off the bee with my shovel.
