Sad Day at Church

Yesterday was the last Sunday for our preacher, T, and his family. They were transferred to another church at the other end of our state. T has done so much for my family that it is sad to see him go.

They have a daughter who is 7 months older than Harley and they love each other. Whenever they saw each other they would run and hug each other and then chase each other around the room.

T saw Scott and I through marriage counseling, he married us, he was at the hospital when I had Harley, a few surgeries for the family, he was there for the last few months of my granny's life, and there the day she died. He has seen us through a full circle of life.

I know he will help his new church and hopefully one family will reap all the benefits we received from him. Hopefully his new church will see what a blessing he is and come to love him as we did.

I'm a little excited to meet the new preacher. I'm sure he is just as friendly. Scott is very excited to meet him because he is a Marine.

Sunday will be here before we know it and we'll meet the new preacher soon enough. This week will be spent remembering T and all the fun times, sad times, and scary times he shared with my family.

Everyone have a great week and tomorrow's post will be a little lighter!

hello shannnon. how are you? i just wanted to drop by and see how things are going with you.
we have a couple of priest at our church that i lkie. one of them really likes to sing during the mass. i think he likes to hear his own voice. the other one likes to give long sermons and repeats himself a lot. i like them both though. it is hard to get use to a new preacher.
