30 Days of Thankfulness on the Family Farm-Day 18

Day 18-Itty Bitty Bits


Partners in Praise.  That is what it is called.  It happens four times a year in our community.  It's another community effort in our little town.  Tonight the Christians hosted us.  We all gathered and rejoiced and praised and sang.  All celebrating what God has given us during this harvest season.  


There were praise bands and ensembles, solos and a community choir.  It doesn't matter how talented you are, just that you are willing to share you music with others in the spiriting of praising God.  


As a side note, the organizer of the host church is the owner of a very popular tourist attraction in our area.  It's called The Great Pumpkin Patch.  The church was decorated with beautiful pumpkins and squash that he grew on his farm.  If you are ever in this area, you should go there.  For sure.  


After the hour long service, we all ate lasagna and pumpkin desserts in the basement of the church. The Methodists, the Baptists, the Christians and the Mennonites.  All together, hanging, fellowshipping and eating.  It's weird.  It's wonderful. We're such a joined community that it is almost hard to explain.  


I'm thankful for my itty bitty bit of musical talent so I can be a part of it all.  ROCK ON!
