Fourth Day of Christmas present
Chris Horner is friend and musician from Virginia. Just before Christmas, she shared this encounter with her grandchild.
Husband Colin added, "and this all goes on with four heading out the door to party, a hockey game on the TV, Christmas cards being stuffed and dinner being served to the late arrivers home. The application of faith must be powerful to overcome life's day to day."
Sammy invited me to a church service in the living room this evening. In attendance: two human; two dogs. The order of service was handwritten and is included verbatim below:
1. Entry with song
2 .Daily anonsments
5. personal silent prayr
7. hold hands and sing a song
8. exit with a song
Okay, the whole service took ~ 5 minutes. Cissy, who has learned to "shake", actually offered her paw during hand holding. Sam used recorded bits from the piano for the music, except when we sang "Jesus Loves Me". (Little dogs to Him belong) After the service, she handed me another piece of paper...
"need church organist".
I have accepted position and been prepaid 5 cents.
God is good.
