Happy Birthday Maggie

Maggie's birthday turned into a two day affair. It was fun because the whole family came. Maggie enjoyed all the attention she got from the grand kids. A friend of my daughters came over with her puppy on Sunday and Maggie got to play with someone not human.

We went to church and they had to call for 911 for aid for someone who was a retired pastor. We were impressed with the way the congregation cared for not only the one in distress but others in the congregation that needed aid. The children who were listening to the children's sermon where given an explanation as what was happening and what they could do to help. They moved the congregation to the fellowship room so that the 911 attendants could work more easily. In the fellowship room we prayed and sung "Jesus Loves Me" The pastor did give a sermon which was one of the best I have heard. There wasn't any notes he walked around from table to table talking to the individuals there. He was asking them[ and me] to listen and look for Jesus calling them to a special job He wants them to do.
