In the Lord’s House
In the Lord’s House
 
“I was glad when they said unto me, ‘Let us go into the house of the Lord.’”
- Psalm 122:1
 
My older siblings have told me that my first days in the Lord’s house were in the arms of my father as he carried out his duties as Sunday School Superintendent, while my mother taught the ladies Bible class.
I well remember my first Sunday School teacher.  She played a small pump organ and taught us to sing “Jesus Loves Me” and “Tell Me the Stories of Jesus.”  Throughout my youth, I was blessed with many church activities such as participation in Bible studies, mission projects, and pageants led by devoted Christian leaders.
 
In adult life, I have worshiped and served in my local church, worked hard to earn a living, and, with God’s constant loving care, raised two children who bear Christ’s name.  The years have led me on paths of great joy and happiness and on times of deep sadness; through life-threatening illness, and periods of amazing good health.  God has been with me all the way and I have learned more of His love with each experience.
 
Prayer:
Thank you, dear Lord, for your house of worship, for inspired teachers, wise counselors, caring pastors, fellow Christian friends, and a loving family.  I am very grateful for your presence in my life for these 90 years.
