What An Honour! Celebrating Christ!

Ahh...  Last night, I slept like a log.  Praise God!  Thank You, Jesus!

Obviously, I was exhausted, but it wasn't all from yesterday's schedule.  The night before last, I just could not relax.  Consequently, I don't recall having any sleep.

I was too excited to sleep.  Anticipation and other things kept me awake.

While I was anticipating attending our 50+ group luncheon at my church, it was not the reason for my anxiety.  Even if I was somewhat nervous about singing, there.

Truly, I had no reason to be anxious regarding the luncheon, for I attend the group every month. 

Yesterday's meeting was actually a health fair.  We had guests who set up table displays and talked to us and handed out information.  Some of the participants were from The Diabetes Association, VON, Hospice and The Heart Association.  All in all, it was a very interesting and informative meeting.

Unfortunately, not everyone who I usually see there, joined us.  For some reason, our Fellowship room was only about half (1/2) full.  At first, I thought this was strange.

Then, I thought possibly some who attend, who are from another church, possibly had a conflict in their schedule.  Other thoughts passed through my mind, too.  Including the fact, that since the topic was on health, possibly some people didn't like the idea of having a healthy lunch!  :-))

While together, we enjoyed a healthy and delicious lunch of soup, salads and fruit for dessert, this was not our typical lunch menu.

Most often, we have salads, some of which are not always the healthiest.  But, quite often there are so many dishes to choose from that people tend to overeat.  Not to mention the delicious desserts that many of us bring to share!

Whatever the reason for the low attendance, those who were there had a good time of fun, food and fellowship.  Those who were not, missed out.

My friend M, who is now retired, joined me at the meeting.  Thank you, M!  I pray you enjoyed yourself enough to join us again, another time!

Okay.  Yesterday, I mentioned that if you wanted to know what gave me the anxiousness that you should stay tuned.  So, here goes:

Tuesday evening, I received a phone call.  A long distance call.  This call was different than most I receive, because it was from a Facebook (FB) friend.  Together, along with others, we have ministered to many people. 

This was the first (1st) time I had ever heard her voice.  What a blessing it was to be able to speak and pray, together!

The call was filled with excitement, because my friend formally asked me to speak and sing at an upcoming conference.

The 'Celebrating Christ' Conference, will take place in Wichita, Kansas, USA, early in November, this year.

More details will follow.  However, I already know that I have been asked to speak to attendees regarding being single, divorced, widowed and/or married. 

Wow!  What a blessing!  What an honour!

Until next time...
