Amazing Grace

Did you see the "I'm Thankful" tab in my sidebar? Well, to get the full explanation, click on it and read about it.

So, for my "thankful" beginning, I would like to begin with my church. Today was the celebration of 100 years of the church. We had a super huge (for our little town church) event; over 575 present and former members attended, three former pastors, and various "dignitaries". We celebrated with a luncheon afterwards, centennial cookbooks, DVDs, etc.

Looking back at the pictures of the progression of the church family---those who have gone on to our heavenly home, those who have moved away, those who we've lost touch with, those who still attend--all of this made me so grateful to be a part of this congregation--no! family!

So many lives have been touched, so many children taught, so many musicals and Christmas pagents, so many weddings & funerals, so many just plain ole Sunday mornings. It's sad to think that some don't have the privilege of worshipping as they would like; that some choose to live their lives without the blessing of a church family.

Well, so much could be written about this wonderful day, but (as I catered the event!!!), I'm stopping here for now! More as I digest is all.

Be thankful!
