“Hold on to Your Fork-The Best is Yet to Come”

From the Heart

Louise Gibson

author of Window Wonders

Oh, the nostalgia of memories of long ago-
of friendships formed in church groups
that set our heart aglow.

Friends are one of life’s richest blessings-
the fellowship warms our heart.
We need people to share our hopes and fears-
a family set apart.

Life, like a church supper,.
offers a variety of temptations to succumb-
But, like the preacher always stood up to say,
Hold on to your fork, folks-
the best is yet to come”!

    Chuch suppers are still going on though many are not bring a dish but rather prepared by the church.

      Thank you for your kind remarks. I was beginning to think that maybe I was too antiquated, and nobodfy could relate to my sentiments concerning church suppers.

    Eyes have not seen, nor ears have not heard what God has prepared for those who love Him! (Forgive me for not listing the Bible verse origin. I love to remember scripture, but I often fail to remember where in the Bible I found it.)
