Our pastor, our friend
We have become good friends with our pastor and his wife. We have shared tears and laughter, good times and bad. Still, it is not always the easiest of friendships to maintain, in that they are still our pastor and his wife and sometimes situations arise where they have to be careful not to show partiality or favoritism. We always try our best in these times to let them know that we understand. We are still their friends. We assure them that we do not feel threatened at these times and we know that they must be careful. Oh, but what times of laughter we share/ have shared!! This past Sunday night, sitting in Burger King after church, we laughed so hard about something or other, that we laid our heads on the tables, hung onto the back of our chairs laughing. And then Wednesday night, after church, we decided to stop at McDonald's. It was pouring buckets of rain, so Sis. Martin offered me one of her umbrellas. Well, we get to McDonald's and in driving around to the other side of the parking lot, we see Pastor Martin getting out, his umbrella first and the wind and rain was so fierce that it turned his umbrella inside out!!! And then when he finally got it turned right side out, gallons of rain dumped on him!! We four stumbled into McDonald's soaked and laughing our fool heads off! I was bent over with laughter! I am so thankful for their friendship and that they love me. And even when things are kind of rough, we can always find something to laugh about!
Oh, the picture of them above was taken on old-fashioned Sunday. *smile*
