    Happy birthday, Bowtwi

    Thanks, Twinky! It was a wonderful day. It's so fun to be remembered!
  4. Do you mean to say that Howard Allen married Wanda Wierwille, Don's widow?
  5. I'm so delighted to read your experiences, Oldskool! You sound like me! I found a wonderful church, as well, and am so very satisfied in so many areas of my life! I'm not surprised a lady stepped forward and was totally the perfect match! I'm confident she'll live a very long and healthy life, as will your awesome son! God is good - ALL the time! We continue to pray for all of the ex-way community to find such joy and rejoicing - and to post their stories!
  6. I'm having a similar experience. I'm an elder in a First Christian (Disciples of Christ) church and taking classes toward a lay pastor license. I took a class a couple weeks ago called, dig this --- BOUNDARIES TRAINING. I kid you not! One of the very first things they discussed was that if you're single and a pastor and you feel attracted to someone in your congregation, DO NOT TRY TO PASTOR THEM, rather have them move to another church or have someone else pastor them. They went to great lengths to explain beyond any possible doubt how one must never ever mix dating or having an affair with someone you're pastoring. They also had speakers that were Buddhist, Catholic, Lutheran, Methodist and I don't know what all, leaders in quite a variety of denominations and philosophies. The idea is to ENCOURAGE thinking and that it's really okay for everyone to believe what they believe - the point is to follow through and act like you believe what you believe. The reason there are so many denominations is pretty simple, after all. There are so many people and we each have our own minds - and we each have freedom of will. It seems to me the Christian walk is about loving God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength and our neighbors as ourselves.

    Yum!

    I have very similar memories - the smell, taste and feel of paste... I also liked to eat Elmer's Glue once upon a time...
  8. It's been a long time Now I'm coming back home.
  9. I'd say it is a rock n roll tune, but Rock and Roll ain't the title. It's been a long time Now I'm
  10. I don't know about that but this is the first line of a song I think could be guessed from just this line. It's been a long time.
  11. Take It Easy by The Eagles. Already Gone by The Eagles. Good grief. I typed Take it Easy, then tried to delete that when I realized I didn't mean that, but rather that I meant Already Gone by The Eagles and I can't seem to edit my post.

    Happy Easter

    Thanks mstar! I'll print that out and hang it on my bulletin board - its beautiful! Twinky - I feel a lot like you do today - thankful for the freedom to worship as I choose. Our service was lovely. The sanctuary was decked out with gorgeous Easter lilies, one of which I bought in memory of loved ones that have passed away. Twelve or so of our choir members (including my 14-year-old daughter) sang a lovely cantata that brought me to tears. Our pastor taught on the similarities between the woman at the well, the centurion and the man who laid at the gate of the temple daily all his life and their brief conversations with Jesus and the huge changes in their lives with some people in our own congregation that in the past several months have had hands laid on them and were prayed for and their resulting healings - one guy was told by his doctors that he'd never walk again and 2 weeks ago about 35 of our congregation laid hands on him and prayed for him to be healed and last week HE WALKED from their van to the church!!! I praise GOD! I could tell more stories like that, but I think that makes the point. We're seeing lots of really cool stuff happening here - we're experiencing revival in a huge way and it's not only safe to be Christian here, but I daresay downright fashionable!!! We're having a blast!!! I can't wait to see what happens next!
