We are now meeting in a “real” Church!

Praise Be to God!  We are now meeting in a church on Sunday’s.  It is not ours, but we have a standing order for three months and then we will see about making it a permanent meeting place.  We just want to be in God’s will.  The Vicar (Reverand) of the Church of England, is so cordial, and accommodating. He has been Vicar of this parish since the 70’s.  He sure reminds me of Sean Connery!  LOL! He has agreed for us to have the church every Sunday, a 12:00 to 2:00 service, break to the cafe-hall, for refreshments, and then reconvene for the next service, 3:00 to 4:30ish.  Since we are small we are able to have it less than what we were paying for the Hall in Central London, this is why I praise God!!  When God moves, nothing stands in His way!
 
This church is very old, (Barnet-All Saints Church pictures), ornate, stained glass windows, and arch ceilings.  It is wide and tall, 2 pipe organs, and a Grand Piano, no more lugging around our Roland Digital Piano!  Good thing because the sustain pedal had started to give out, and using two feet to hold it down, did not help me shape my musical phrases at all, just gave it a purplunk sound. But hey, I have learned and still learning to go with the flow, so now I can play on this old, but decent Grand piano, with ivory keys and rejoice that God is providing.  We so rejoice in everything no matter how big or small it is.  Psalms 23 KJV is just becoming more endearing to my heart, especially the phrase, "I shall not want".  What do I think that I want?  What does God want me to have?  Am I happy with what God is providing for me?  I must focus on God’s provisions for me, and let Him lead me whether it is "beside still waters" or "walking in the shadow of death", because He will "restore my soul", because of His love for me, I’m assured that "surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life", and I pray that I may find myself in His dwelling place forever more!

    Glad to hear your adventures in England! And that you are "being flexible" with God\’s plans:) It sure is hard when you think you already know what things are suppose to look like and He\’s says, huh, I planned it a different way… I am still learning to lean, too:) Love you!!!

    Thanks Gina! His plan is perfect, we must walk as HE leads, after He is our Shepherd!  I love and miss you, too!  God bless you with the new little boy.:)

    Your church is so beautiful and it was wonderful how the spirit came in on the Sunday. I can\’t wait to be with you guys again in October. I\’m thrilled you have a place to meet and the Lord is providing. I sure miss you guys and we had the best time just hanging out with you. See you soon.
     
    Love, Cherie

    "But they that wait upon (bind together; collect; to expect) the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint."  Isa. 40:31
    Looking forward to October.  The Lord is so good and my soul is rejoicing…lalala….by the way, I don\’t sing but I can type to you….

    How truly quaint and serene the church looks!  I am sure it holds so many mysteries and has seen so many things over the years.  NOW – it holds the Body of Christ!  How wonderful!  You and Johnny are an inspiration to me, and I pray God will bless every endeavour no matter how small.  Give those little lads a hug and a kiss for me.
