Rain, Rain, go away. Rain is falling down here in my part of the world. I love everything about the raining season except getting my clothes and materials soaked with rain water of course. So today started out fine and still going fine. I got up quite early. I prepared for church service and by 06:40 hours, I was out of the house and en route to my church premises. I got to church at 07:05 hours. There was just one car inside the church compound, guessed I was the early bird today.
My church is quite a big one, it is a massive duplex building made up of three floors. I made my way up to the last floor which is also the third floor because no one loves staying there and people rarely go there. I do love staying there. I am introverted even among my church congregation. I picked up a chair and sat down quietly although I knew I wasn’t going to disturb anyone if I had sat down loudly.
After few minutes, I heard people exchanging pleasantries on the second floor which serves as the main church auditorium and I went closer to the rail so I could get a look at them. (Laughs and scream) “My dear sister, how are you?” said one of the ushers to a lady walking into the auditorium. ‘Oh, we bless God”, My dear sister replied. By now people have started coming in as the church service starts by 07:00 hours. “You look good! I did not see you last Sunday or the one before that”, a man said to his friend as they walked to get seated. I was out of town, he replied. “I hope your journey was a good one?” He asked another question. It was fine, his friend replied back. This is kind of conversations is what you will hear before the service starts or after the church service. Church-goers (Christians, real christians) tends to look after each other. It is a good thing! And I am not a sadist if you are thinking that now. People still exchange pleasantries with me too! And I just smile and reply with “fine” to all questions. I don’t ask questions. Not because I am not a Christian but because I am …
The two and the half hours I spent in the presence of the Lord was good. Great, I meant to type. The preacher preached on “Generational leader”. I learnt a few new things about who a leader is and how a leader should act. During the course of the sermon, I was joined in my private space by a group of vibrant teenagers. We have teenagers and we also have the vibrant ones. They were laughing and looking through the social media accounts like pointing to each other. There was a selfie and groupie session too! Teens!
The service ended and with a speed of light, I was out of the church building. Another session of pleasantries exchange will start soon and this can last for about 30 mins to one hour. I will remember everyone in my prayers (uhm). I went to visit a family friend who was down with malaria. She was on drip when I got to her house. I greeted her and wished her quick recovery before leaving her house for mine.
Well, the rain is starting to stop now. I will take a nap probably after publishing this post. I don’t have a new series or movie to see. I might end up reading, “How to win friends and Influence people” gain for the 4th time. I don’t do visitation, so outing is out for me today. Happy Sunday and I hope you are enjoying your day?
I do love reading comments!
