    We closed in family prayer
    Where we joined hands forming from pulpit to back wall almost
    It was distracting to try to count how many we were
    I think we all surprised each other with our attendance
    Only pastor would have been the one to notice the very late
    For none really looked back to see who tip toed in
    Had pastor been there she would have been the one to see them first
    For she of course would be facing that direction

    Ah yes the presence of God was truly felt by those who were alive
    The others just did not count if you know what I mean
    The service was well delivered by an awesomely dressed may I say minister
    Seemed like she really heard it about dress well when talking about God
    Then you would not believe the fire delivered follow up
    That sister really stepped in Pastor’s absence
    She talked about putting on the whole armor of God
    That wherever we stood in our lives we had to prepare for any obstacle
    Things that could make you waver in behavior, speech or belief

    Spelled it out so clear that all were in the amen corner
    This surprised me for usually pastor has to pull the amen out of our lazy characters
    Maybe we feared the fly on the wall that may tell pastor that we were no better
    Our behavior that is in the way we sent back energy to the speaker
    Yes it appears the fly had nothing to say because we were on time and task throughout
    I never did see the whirlwind that emptied all the trash before we left

    Opening prayer was awesome too
    Made proper demands of protection for our pastor in her journey of rest
    The ritualistic words sounded new and vibrant and ever reaching
    Yes we were covered and alive, relieved to be in the house of the lord
    Some walked in exhausted from the world and refreshed in the company of saints
    This place truly is not ordinary and we even had time to pray for President Bush
    I wondered if I was banging the three tambourines I held separately and together too loud
    Just when I decided to tone it down they ventured to play exciting gospel songs

    We definitely could probably download a routine playlist for the congregation
    Otherwise how will we remember the words to the song pastor encouraged us to know
    This is a fascinating place and our intercessor would never have to worry in her absence
    God must have looked at us today and gave the world a little more extra time

    PatriceCQueen,

    Very powerful indeed my Sister, just reading it made me feel as though I was there. Whether it was real or not, the message is clear, thanks!

    It seems as though eyes were reopened in the spirit, you received a blessing in that visiting pastor. Agreeing with the 2 brothers, your words were so vivid it made the reader feel as though they were present poetess.

    It was real and I am glad that it was not clear and either way felt powerful to you.

    A lot of people agree with you about it giving the feeling as one is there when they hear it

    Peace

    Patrice

    In the Spirit of Sankofa!


    PatriceCQueen,

    Between you and Destee, I don't know who is the best Preacher in the house, and that is a fact, my dear sister Friend. Also, what is very powerful, is that fact that whether or not it was true, and I didn't take any chances about that, nevertheless, it is far reaching. Now that I know you, I know you speak truth, and as myself, we speak truth to power. What I write is the truth, from hear to glory, no sugar coating, nothing but straight talk, which is often somewhat dangerous. Keep it flowing Patrice!
