Back then, Wednesday was my day off at work, and I would go to the church in the morning and do any tasks that Bro. Kramer needed help with. I just wanted to be around the church and the people of God. My reward for doing this was that Bro. Kramer answered all of the million-and-one questions I had about God and the Bible. You see, I didn't know anything about God or the Bible or anything when I came into the church. I didn't even know about the Holy Ghost and still God so graciously and miracously filled me with His Spirit when I repented that first night. Bro. and Sis. Kramer would have me over to their home for lunch and if there wasn't anything for me to do at the church, Sis. Kramer and I would go to the library or the park. Well, last night at church in Mt. Vernon, I made sure I got a picture of me and Pastor Kramer. And, again, I never fail to thank him for the time he spent in teaching me and helping to become grounded in the word and things of the Lord.
I also got to see and visit with Sis. Serena Edwards. She was my star piano student a few years ago and I was her first "apostolic" piano teacher. She is now a student at IBC. Oh, and she passed me by a long time ago as far as her abilities on the piano goes. The girl can just flat tear it up now! *smile* She is a sweetheart! Oh, and she is single, too. ;-) I cannot say enough good things about this young woman. She is sold out to God and is such an inspiration to everyone who knows her or has the privilege of meeting her.
And last, but certainly not least by ANY means, I got to see BECKY, my adopted grand-daughter!! She sat with me in service last night and we talked when we were able to and caught up on a few things that are going on in her life.
I also got to see Bro. Donnie Ryan and his sweet family, Bro. Don Ryan, Bro. and Sis. Sheets, Sis. Jana, Sis. Theresa and so many others that I hadn't seen for so long. It was a real treat! Again, I must say that I am so blessed to have so many wonderful, godly people in my life. There is no greater treasure in this life.
