Today was a day full of church.
Well, I know its Sunday and all, but we went THREE times! There was Sunday School as usual, which is hectic enough, but I only had two show up which was unusual. So that threw me.
Also, some people were worrying uneccesarily over Christmas Concert plans, so that set my mind working.
After a quick jaunt home to eat, and feed animals, we were off again to Oromocto. Ron’s friend Duane started a church in there, and Ron was peaking today. Duane was also away, so we were in charge of setting up. We got all the way there, and realized we had forgotten the mini PA system from our regualr church! So Ron and the singer had no mike. No worries, because there was like, only three families present, including ours.
After, Ron stopped off the get a coffe, and he also picked up a box of doughnuts because we were so well behaved. Me too, I guess. I asked Addison how he thought Dad did. “I give him an A” he said, cracking a smile, “For Amatuer!” Good thing Ron didn’t hear – but he did laugh when I told him later.
The girls didn’t say much since they were a little miffed because their friends weren’t there.
After yet-another-quick-jaunt home for food, the kids and I were off again to our church because they had some special guests. They were missionaries from Africa; the Congo and Ivory Coast to be specific. They were originally from France, so their son acted as interpreter.
The girls had been all anxious to go, but sat through most of it wondering when it would be over. I did tell them they weren’t having food afterwards, but they still wanted to come.
Anyway, when they were done speaking, I swear, I would have followed them directly to the airport had they asked. But when the service was over, I didn’t get a chance to speak with them because one guy hogged all their time, and it was late, the kids wanted to go, and hey, most everyone else was gone. So we left.
And I din’t really have anything to add that is really profound, thoughtfull or even spiritual, because it has all left me. G’night!
