A suprising church
Saying for the Day- Is there a Word from the Lord?
The Church Betty and I are attending continues to surprise me. First, the Pastor who I assumed from previous weeks to be a mediocre preacher at best, preached a great sermon. In it I could hear God speaking to me.
Then there was the second bell choir. We had heard the other bell choir on a previous visit. But this was a children’s bell choir and they were good. I am beginning to understand why there are so many children in church. They are part of what is happening. They are involved in the worship. Another thing the Pastor does is that at some point in the worship service he stops everything and has the congregation sing Jesus Loves Me. That song belongs to the kids. They may not be able to sing the hymns for the day but this song is theirs and they belt it out. They are part of the worship. They are important.
Another surprise , one of the ushers for the day was in an electric wheelchair. This chair doesn’t just have a handicapped accessible sign . The same person held the cup for communion. I swear his face glowed .
I am beginning to love this church.
@@@@ News from Pigeon Falls– The little town in my garage where the trains still run, dragons fly, and Mrs. Trumble rules– The town council met last night to decide on the new library. The architects had turned in their drawings and it was clear that building a new building would cost less than either of the proposed renovations. It was also clear that a new building would be handicapped accessible, have a computer room, and fit the needs of a modern world. So Mrs. Trumble came ready to get it built. She started the meeting by saying that the question before the council was how can they get the best library for the money available. She allowed only thirty minutes of debate. Two of the council members who wanted to enlarge the Town Hall were upset. The final vote was five in favor of building a new library and two against. One of the losing council members said that Mrs. Trumble thinks she is the Stalin of Pigeon Falls. Mrs. Trumble said “ We have had enough talk it is time to build.”
Of course, the talk at Nancy’s this morning was about the council meeting . Most people supported Mrs. Trumble but there were some that didn’t. Some people felt that the library had always been in the Town Hall and it made no sense to build a new one. Some said that Pigeon Falls is just a little town and it doesn’t need a fancy library with a computer room. And a few people were afraid that the kids would use those computers to look at porn. They had heard that was what kids did in the city.
Over at the Fly Inn Bar and hotel tempers flared. After a few drinks Henery Bailey announced that Mrs. Trumble wasn’t even born in Pigeon Falls and had no right to be Mayor. One of her supporters took offense at that and it looked like they were going to come to blows. That’s when Joe the bartender put his bat on the bar and asked them to leave. They left.

Had a hard time breathing today. I'm not sure why. We left the Fortress in the morning and went to the Motor Vehicle Office. we had the forms filled out to get Wisconsin plates and Wisconsin licensees . We didn't know we had to be able to prove we lived in Wisconsin for thirty days to get the licensees but we did get new plates. It will take another visit to get everything done. From their we went to Menard's and looked at the prices of some lumber for a project Pennie wants to build. Then we went to the Golden Corral and ate. An experience I don't plan on repeating. Then we came home. I took a short nap and some oxygen. Now I need a breathing treatment.
