A Memorable Sunday

I've been doing what red-blooded Americans are supposed to do on Memorial Day weekend: taking it easy! Yesterday was a simply wonderful Sunday, for which I thank God. After a stirring service at church, a bunch of folks, mostly friends of my two boys, congregated at our house and we just sang worship songs all afternoon, then feasted together on a corned beef and cabbabe dinner. Later on, after most of the young people went off to other pursuits, our good friends Dave and Todd stayed on and we just talked and prayed together all evening. I'm telling you, the whole day felt like a gift from God. There was the aroma of eternity in the air!

I'm planning to return to the "Christian's Identity" series in the days ahead, and also to blog more about the "armor of God," along with whatever other unexpected themes come knocking. We'll just have to see. Thanks to all those who have dropped by to comment, and thanks to Broken Messenger for the kind trackback. See you tomorrow!

I cannot imagine a better day than this and it is something we have experienced only rarely in our lives!! But long for. Seems this is what God would intend for all HIS followers!
