10-30-11 I started out the morning very early! 6:00am to be exact. I was so excited to get back to First Baptist and sing with the Praise team. It felt like I never left. I love the group! I love being able to help lead in worship. I know some people don't appreciate the value of music in a church service, but God has ALWAYS spoken to me through song. Our Pastor, Phil, preached a great sermon that solidified the day.
After church, I headed to see my cousin Lacy, who was on bed rest with her pregnancy. I was so thankful to get to catch up with her & Ray.
Next, was Sunday lunch with the family. I had asked my Aunt Susie if she would make me chicken & dumplings since I wouldn't be able to come home for Thanksgiving. I told her she didn't have to since I knew it was a lot of work. She told me no, but told me the other things she was going to be making. I requested fried okra and she said yes to that. I showed up and guess what was on the stove! I love that woman! Chicken & Dumplings might be my favorite comfort food. (A friend of mine just sent me a recipe for gluten free dumplings. We'll see if I'm brave enough to attempt them.)
