My sweet friend Melinda constantly has a camera in her hand. She is actually worse about it than I am, and I thought I was bad. I have several photos I want to share with you. They are not just your ordinary snaps...they are photos with a story....Just like the one on the left here...You see, a few weeks ago she was standing in the Arbor(where we both attend the Praise and Worship Service) parking lot when she looked up in the sky and found her guardian angel looking down on her. Wow! That is about the coolest story I had ever heard. I laughed and told her that when I was a child one of my favorite pastimes was laying in the grass in our yard and making things appear in the clouds. I have spent many happy hours doing this....even as an adult....but when I saw this picture...Melinda asked me, "What do you see?" I saw the angel immediately. How absolutely lovely. Is it not great how God gives us little signs daily that He is there for us. THIS was a true praise moment and it left me feeling warm and fuzzy. In the movie Pay it Forward the end song is one that always makes me cry.....heck..the whole movie rips me off the frame...but there is a song about Calling All Angels at the very end...and through the credits. It is rather haunting and done acapella with the most amazing harmonics. I thought I would share it with you today to go along with my angel photo. Have a blessed Thursday!
I am a woman who wears many hats and loves them all. I am a singer - I sing with the group Still Magnolias. I was part of the original First United Methodist Church Arbor Praise Team until we moved. After 24+ years of teaching English 11 and Spanish I - II at Benjamin Russell High School I decided to take a job closer to home. I now teach Spanish I & 2 at Randolph Co. High School and Wadley. I thought I was getting close to retirement and looking forward to it, but decided to move my cheese and try something different. I am a preacher's wife and a preacher myself. My husband Frank is the pastor at Rock Mills United Methodist Church and I am the pastor at Midway (Wedowee). It has made our conversations interesting, to say the least.
