Went To A Singing Last Night....






Kristina and I went to Bro. Joe Arthur's church last night for a service where The Inspirations were going to be singing. It was wonderful!! I needed that service. It started out with the church choir singing and then The Inspirations. Bro. Joe preached a short message at the end. The church was packed out. There were chairs along the back wall across the sanctuary and chairs had been put out in the aisles.

I had never heard The Inspirations in person and I have to say they were totally different than what I thought. Most Southern Gospel groups tend to be a bit showy. They tend to be more of performers than anything else. But not them. They were such a blessing!!

Guess what!! I was there, too! Facing the platform, we sat on the left towards the back. I can't believe I missed you! :)

mrs. c....I can't believe you missed me too. I sat down toward the front in the middle. We were in the 3rd or 4th pew...and I was up and down several times before the service started saying hi to several people...I can't believe you didn't see me or Kristina. I'm so sorry I missed the opportunity to see and meet you!!!

I wish I could have been there with you. The Inspirations have always been one of my favorite singing groups. I agree a lot of them are more of performers than anything else, at least it looks that way. I know they were a real blessing. connie from Texas

Oh, I know you enjoyed yourselves. The Inspirations have been to our church several times and they are ALWAYS a blessing.

Did Machelle not want to go with y'all?

sis. kristi...Michelle hadn't gotten back home by the time we left to go to the church. So my husband stayed home with her and it was just Kristina and I that went. Ronnie and Jessica met us there though.

Glad you had a good time. We really enjoy the Inspirations. They are such a blessing. I know when we were home on furlough we heard them at Faith Baptist Camp. They got started many years ago singing in our pastor's tent revivals years ago. Dr. Sammy Allen. Thank the Lord they not changed. Would love to have them here in England some day.

bro. tooley....I'm honored that you visit my blog. You and your family are such a blessing to me and my family. We pray for you always here!! It would be a real blessing I know if you could have the Inspirations there in England. I didn't get to hear them at FBC when they were there...but I heard that one of the men's son got saved there that night. What a blessing!!

Hi Julie,
I feel so bad I haven't commented. But believe me when I say I go on your blog a whole lot and keep on trying to comment but I keep on loosing it in cyberspace.

That is so great about the Inspirations I was looking at the pictures on your daughter,s blog and just thought that was so cool you saw them.

Praying for you.
Ginger
