I got to the church a little early to see if I could be of any assistance to those that were actually working, and did get to help carry some of the food and supplies up to the building where we were serving dinner. About 4:00 the fish started singing as they sizzled away in the hot oil, and it sounded pretty good. they tasted really good when they came out of the oil. Peanut Oil? who knew that it could make fish sing so good. There were a lot of good fixins to go with the fish, including fried taters and onions, beans, salads of all kinds, fried biscuits, a marvelous table of desserts, and fellowship and visiting that would warm any heart. I certainly hope that all in attendance felt welcome.
By 7:00 PM we had made our way into the church and there was some good singing by Vic and Carol Murdy, “Farther Along”, “The Tramp on the Street”, “God on the Mountain”, “I’ve Got More to Go to Heaven For”, “I Won’t Have to Worry Anymore”, “Just a Closer Walk With Thee”, “Keep Me In Your Will”, “Keep On the Sunny Side”, “There Was One Drop He Shed Just For Me”, “Someday Soon We’re Going Over”, “Poor Wayfaring Stranger”, “Far Side Banks of Jordan”, “The Anchor Holds”.
Then Gregg, Carla, John, Kay Mac, and Sara sang “Every Day” and “Small Town Someone (Lunch)” I had never heard either one of these songs, but they both had a good message. Then Vic and Carol joined the group and they did “Ring the Bells of Heaven”, “Heavens Jubilee”, “When the Saints Go Marching In” and “He Set Me Free”.
John W Then Sang “How Great Thou Art”
Peggy was asked to sing and she chose “Because He Lives” and then the road song, “Highway to Heaven” was requested.
Vic and Carol had taken a few minutes to take a break and came back and finished up the evening doing; “I Will Meet You In the Morning”, “Gone Home” and finished off with the Christian Anthem “Amazing Grace”
What a blessed evening of music, I might even learn to like music a tiny bit.
We were then dismissed in prayer by Pastor Gregg.
