Sharing My Church 20 Years Ago



This is the Trailblazers, a group from our church 20 years ago. This features Phil Barker, Jesse Pratt (who is with the Lord now-we miss him so much-He was our Pastor and General Overseer then.), Ray Faulknor, Alton Gentry, Trey Starnes (on the piano-our pastor), Jay Pratt on Guitar. What a blessing this group was. When Phil speaks about Bro. Harold Sowder it is so touching for us because he was the General Secretary of our church and just went home to be with the Lord this year. This group is the singing group that we were invited to hear before we joined our church. Memories. Sweet memories. Thank the Lord we have charted our course and know where home is. Thank you Lord.

I would like to dedicate this song to my new blogging friend Susan in memory of her husband, Vann. You can visit her here: http://blackberrycreek.typepad.com

I can't believe it has been so long since I visited you and Granny. I love the song. Thank you so much, Valerie, for remember me and Vann. Today, in addition to be Thanksgiving, is our 15th wedding anniversary. I had a good cry last night, but I'm feeling all right today.
