life defined - sunday, january 23rd, 2011



peace is...knowing God's will


excitement is...waiting for Dad's signal


a thrill is...what I felt as we walked up the aisle as a family


joy is...the feeling I felt as we stood before the church professing our desire to join them in membership


tears are...what were on my cheek and the cheeks of others as this long-awaited moment *finally* arrived after four years


hugs are...what we received in abundance after the service as the whole church came up to greet us


humor is...when Mr. Ron said, "This is good practice for the receiving line you'll have at your wedding" :P LOL


love is...what was vibrating through the building all that morning


a memory is....what we made today.


joy is...being surrounded by a body of believers who love you, have loved you for a long time and will continue to love you in Christ and who encourage, support and stand by you through thick and thin, through differences and similarities


relief is...NO MORE CHURCH HOPPING!!!!


Praise God from Whom all Blessings flow!
Praise Him all Creatures here below!
Praise Him above ye Heavenly hosts!
Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost!

Amen
