Of course, it helps to be a pastor/wife or someone who just loves to hear good Biblical preaching and awesome singing to REALLY enjoy yourself! We hear approximately 6 sermons a day and hear some of the finest pastors in our country preach! It is centered around giving some encouragement and spiritual uplifting to your local pastor! Pastors need to get preached to also!
I went to several pastor's wives events and was pleased to hear Lisa McKay speak to us. You can view her blog, apreacherswife.com and see what a delightful person she is! She is the author of a book(You Can Still Wear Cute Shoes) for preacher's wives which I can't wait to read! I had met her last fall at an event I went to during the Arkansas Baptist State Convention in Searcy.
One of our favorite things about the pastor's conference is seeing the same friends we went to seminary with about 28 years ago. We usually see them once a year and it is always a great time of visiting and catching up with one another's lives.
This is not a very good picture as we were all standing in the sun. And, yes, the younger couple on the right did not go to seminary with us! I am old enough to be their Grandma! They are a young couple in ministry that we see each year and we enjoy being with them very much!
Last night the choir put on a grand finale and it was wonderful as usual! I love the singing!
They had banners with all the names of Jesus from the Old and New Testament. Such a lot of work put in to making these beautiful banners!
And the last banner to come in was the banner with the Name of the King of Kings!
I can't wait till next year!
One of my favorite pastors I heard was Boo Mama's pastor, David Platt, from Birmingham, Alabama.
This is his book that seems to have shaken the Christian world!
I have bought the book and am planning on reading it soon. Have you read it yet?
When we left Florida Wednesday morning around 6 a.m. it was 68 degrees. When we left Tupelo, Mississippi this morning around 6 a.m. it was barely 20 degrees. We only had a trace of ice and snow left when we got home. We went straight to the hospital when we got back into town because we had two ladies from our church who had surgery. Thankfully, both went well.
And then we got home to be welcomed by our dog who had been staying with his former master. We missed him while we were gone and even talked about how happy we would be to see him.
He was so happy to see us he ran a lap around the house! Now he is on his blanket right here beside me sound asleep! We have to go pick up our other dog from the kennel tomorrow.....he will be a happy boy, also, to get home. But he is getting a bath first!!
It's hard to go from WARM to COLD but home is always a good place to be!
