Another Beautiful Day

So it's Sunday. A couple of days ago I saw on Facebook that some friends of ours who had moved away to Atlanta would be in town today and at church. I was pretty psyched about it and even managed to get Frank excited about it and convinced him to come to church with me.

This is no small feat, let me tell you.

So we arrived at church and while walking through the lobby, we were stopped by different people who were surprised to see Frank with me. We were talking with one particular friend when our head pastor spotted us and came over to say hello. This was a big deal for me because I had been hoping that he'd see me these last couple of weeks and then felt convicted for feeling that way when he preached a sermon on "Who are you here for?" meaning, church. So I didn't want to make a big deal out of my being there and him seeing me because really, I am there to worship God and NOT just be seen by the pastor. But it was still nice to be able to stand and talk with him today.

We weaved our way further through the crowds and finally found our visiting friends. Four of their five kids were with them and it was wild to see how much they had all grown. I loved that not only were these wonderful people here and we were talking with them, but that they were the instrument to get Frank in to church - if even just for the day - in YEARS. As the service started, we migrated back out to the lobby - they had been there for the earlier service - so that we could visit a bit. They were heading home after lunch and although we would have LOVED the opportunity to visit more, it just was not to be this time around.

So have a great day today, everyone. Look up and old friend or two and let them know that you were thinking of them. I can guarantee it will make you smile.
