Sunday night was the first time we have been invited to play at one of our local churches. It had been put together by a couple who attend our nursing home church. The husband is a resident in the nursing home, and his wife is with him every day. After we had played at the nursing home last Christmas, the wife began talking to friends at her church suggesting they have us sing there. The church invites groups to sing on fifth Sunday evenings.
We were blessed by having many of our friends join us for the evening in addition to the members of the church. The nursing home brought a van load with 7 residents and 4 volunteers. Work acquaintances, old friends we hadnâ€™t seen for a long time, friends of Teriâ€™s parents, neighbors, and those we interact with around town brought joy to our hearts by giving up their evening to spend with us.
We played many of our usual songs plus two Christmas songs, and between each song one of us gave a testimony. â€œThe LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise himâ€ (Psalms 28:7).
Trusting in Jesus,
