Sunday Sermon and Celebrating 60 With Sherri

1 Jul

A fine Sunday morning. I guess we had bad storms here yesterday evening, but we missed that. We were up in Oklahoma celebrating Sherri’s birthday, but I’ll talk about that later.

Today’s Gospel was the story of Jesus and the disciples being turned away in a Samaritan village. On their journey to the next village, they encountered people who wanted to follow them, but they had things to do first.

62 “Jesus said to him, ‘Once the hand is laid on the plough, no one who looks back is fit for the kingdom of God.”

My take on it… Once you choose to be a Christian, or follow any noble path, for that matter, you should never look back or question your decision or your resolve. Always fight the good fight, never give up, stand strong, and never ever look back.

Now for the celebrating. Last night, Sherri Murphy invited me to join her family for her birthday celebration dinner. We went to Tishomingo, OK for dinner, dancing and good ole country music at Blake Shelton’s Ole Red Restaurant and The Dog House dance hall next door.

After a great dinner and lots of laughing, (Sherri was throwing back shots…actually just one) we went next door to the Dog House dance hall. We had so much fun, with a lot of toe tappin’ country music, and singing and dancing. Here’s Sherri in THE DOG HOUSE.

We had a blast and stayed up way past our old people bedtime. Tishomingo is about a one and a half to two hour drive from here. Thank goodness Mr. Murphy was doing the driving. We didn’t get home till well past 1 am, then I didn’t get to sleep till well past 2, with my alarm set for 7.

I got up early to get the brownies in the oven before church. I was invited to the official family and friends birthday party at Sherri’s house, with her dad, grandkids, friends and neighbors. Today is her actual birthday, so of course, I needed to make brownies.

What a great weekend, celebrating, dancing, dining, and laughing with the always charming and ever effervescent Sherri Murphy.
