Joy Comes in the Morning

Hope ya'll are having a great week so far! It has been a busy week for us. This afternoon Central Baptist in Magnolia had their annual ladies lunch. Our former pastors wife, Laurie was the guest speaker. When I found that out, I had to be there for the lunch. Mama, Mary and I went together and really enjoyed it. Each table was decorated so pretty.
Laurie is absolutely a joy to be around. I miss her but I am glad we got a picture together! We sang in choir together at church too. She has a phenomenal and beautiful voice too.

She spoke about her testimony and how God can use the situations you have gone through to mold you. She spoke about the passage in Ecclesiastes where it talks about there is a time and a season for everything. Sometimes it may seem like things could never get better in situations. But when we have Jesus, we DO have JOY! And I couldn't agree with that statement more.

Laurie is also soo funny! She performed a hilarious song with two ladies from the women's ministry. Their group was called "Destiny's Chicks!" We laughed and laughed.

Laurie also sang a beautiful song that ya'll may know, "The Prayer".
Some of you that read my blog go to FBC Bentonville. I want yall to know I love
ya'll and miss ya'll lots! Keep in touch! After lunch, Mama and Mary stayed at our house for a little while. We had a good visit, as always! There's nothing like spending time with family and friends.
Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning. Psalm 30:5
