    Thank you so much for your beautiful testimony about Calvary Bible Church on our anniversary Sunday. You have an incredible talent for finding the beauty in everything you see and hear. What a great article.

      so thankful it blessed you!

  2. We’ve visited many churches over the years – – locally and abroad, with friends and just us. God is working everywhere! Not just in our own comfy congregation. Not just in our own familiar denomination. Sweet brothers and sisters abound. Their convictions, their buildings, their services may look different, but we have made wonderful connections (many for life!) nonetheless. Ah… Precious memories come flooding to mind…

    He will be 81 in August, they celebrate their 61st anniversary in September, he wrote the song he sang for her for their 50th anniversary, the alzhiemers had already began its work … he goes to the nursing home EVERY day and sits with her even though she has no clue who he is. He is, my grandfather! I love this post and I am thankful to have attended that church since it’s beginning!

      Such an incredible testimony! Thanks for stopping by and filling in the gaps! We enjoyed our visit immensely.

      Blessings upon blessings.

        I revisited your page because a friend of mine told me about it … and my sister reminded me that you were the one who wrote about Grandpa, and Anniversary Sunday. I just reread this post and I sit here in tears. I’m sure there was no way of you knowing this, but God did call my grandmother home, in September … just 11 days after their 61st anniversary. Not surprisingly, God’s peace has washed over my grandfather and he is still singing in church (and visits the nursing home). He’s looking forward to the day where they will be reunited with her.

          Oh, wow. Thank you, Ryan, for letting me know. So glad they were able to see 61 years and so thankful that your grandfather carries such an amazing testimony of God. His love, His peace.

  4. I have grown to LOVE meeting NEW brother’s and sister’s Natasha! God has had to do a restoration process in my personal life… to bring down and heal my pain, and bring me to this point. All glory to God… and I’m asking for more of Him, through His people and the world! Beautiful sharing sister, Amy

  5. It sounds like a small church. We went to a small church before, and I learned it doesn’t matter the size of the church. Good and bad are everywhere. I’m still trying to make our current church feel like home. 🙂

      I understand! It took me quite some time to find my place in our present congregation. <3

  6. Sounds like a beautiful place to be 🙂
    There are about 12 churches in our town, but we never have.
