Memorable Automobiles from The Past:
Over the years we have invited our pastors out to dinner. This time we got a call from a former pastor’s wife inviting us over for dinner. She was having Chicken and dumplings. My mama served me chicken and dumplings all my life. Sherry is not a C & D eater nor cooker. So she readily accepted on my behalf because she knows I love ‘em.
We had a great time talking and learning of their younger years. They are both real Floridians, born and raised here. Their families however are from SC and GA,
WE call them Brother and Sister Carter, they are Wayne and Joyce. Their second marriage, both mates past on. They are a good match and we are proud for them. They just sold their larger home and moved into a small 700 sqft 2BR place. A major down size for them.
They both have wonderful families.
Joyce cooked: Chicken Dumplings, sweet potato casserole, lima beans, chic/rice, collards, cornbread and a delicious slaw. We had tea/coffee and Peach Cobbler w/vanilla ice cream. A feast fit for royalty. It was all delicious.
WE have a good time, they are good friends. Friends are special. They like their neighbors and the neighborhood. A win-win situation.
Preachers come in all sizes and back grounds. Wayne was a stock car driver and worked in auto-parts before he became a minister. He organized and built his church and pastored it for 40 years. doing well. he is easy to talk with and I enjoy his escapades. He is also older than I and I like that. LOL
That is on my mind… Friends and the good life.
PS: From the papers of kids in a Christian School:
. 12. THE GREATEST MIRICLE IN THE BIBLE IS WHEN JOSHUA TOLD HIS SON TO STAND STILL AND HE OBEYED HIM.
(Son & sun, remember?)
