Hello dear followers, friends and family! Goodness is it really that long since I have posted?? Well, I fell in love again, imagine at my age! LOL! After my fall down the cellar steps last spring, my neighbor and I started dating. I had a most wonderful summer and learned how to sail a boat, took many beautiful rides in the country around Central NY and my home town of Auburn, New York.
But best of all, I had joined the choir and new Praise Group at my church, United Church of Auburn. Our Pastor plays banjo, I play guitar and sing and his daughter who is only 12 sings with us along with a friend Russ on guitar with his wife doing some vocals, and a church member Phil who plays electric bass guitar. We have come a long way in just 6 mos or so and I am so blessed to be a part of this group.
God has been very very good to me. Yesterday was the Anniversary of my husband Bill's passing and it was painful for me. I cannot believe he has been gone 3 yrs. Such a wonderful man.
I never thought I could fall in love again but God had other plans. I am not so alone any longer and I know my Sweet Bill would approve of my relationship because my friend a good man, too.
Our Church has been so blessed and has grown a lot in this last year. We have more new members, more children, wonderful teachers and Outreach people, more activities, Bible Study, Choir and our Pastor has been featured on Christian Radio several times as "Pastor of the Day". What a blessing as we have a new person coming to church and Bible study now because she heard Pastor Damon's message on the radio.
Never underestimate how powerful your testimony can be! Even if you reach only that one lost person, God is pleased. The person is enriched, encouraged and coming to the Lord because of something one says or a random act of kindness, your smile that they can see the Lord in you and thirst for Him. Of course good works does not get us into heaven, only Jesus can lead us there by inviting Him into your heart, confess sins and start a new life in Christ. Oh the joy that will fill your soul!
Thank you so much for visiting today and I will be more diligent in posting in the future. God is so good... Have a most wonderful day. Till you come to visit again,
Praise Team: Phil, Russ, me, Megan and her
Dad, Pastor Damon Gagnier.
