Most Sundays I intend to get a picture of us so I can participate in this link up, but for whatever reason it never happens.
A couple of Sundays I did take a picture of the kids playing in the church yard after service, because I love that they do that. Most people stick around after service and visit; the kids bring sports paraphernalia and play outside. Once, a few weeks ago, a couple of people rode by on horses and stopped to let the kids pet them. (They pet the horses, not the people. Just to be clear.)
Obviously I didn’t realize that these shoes were completely falling apart until we were in church. And that wouldn’t even have been such a big deal, except that I had to play two songs on the piano, and sing two songs. The piano is in the front of the sanctuary, and the other musicians that I sang with were in the back. So I walked to the piano, played the first song, then walked to the back of the sanctuary. Thwap, thwap, thwap, went my shoes on the wood floor.
After the song, I returned to the front to sit with my family for the sermon. Thwap, thwap, thwap. After the sermon, back to the piano with my noisy, dangerous shoes. Then, again, around to the back. I was watching my feet like a toddler learning to walk, afraid I would trip over the silly things and fall on my face!
As soon as service was over, I gave up and took them off.
