A Lovely Way To Spend An Evening

The senior adults at Edwards Rd. Baptist Church 
started gathering just before 6:00 PM.

We watched as they just kept coming...
so many tables filled with people 
who had come for an evening of fun.

I think we would sing and play without being fed.
But we will all admit we love the 
church dinners we get to enjoy. 
This one was spectacular.

I ended up sitting with the lady who made the caramel cake.
Keeping my fingers crossed I get the recipe.

But we were there to provide the entertainment.
And visit a little with each other.

We heard so many comments that our band 
was the best program they've ever had 
after we played there a couple of years ago. 
We did our best to live up to their high expectations.

And when the evening was over, 
we were rewarded with a standing ovation. 
We don't always get one, so we truly appreciate
the evenings when everything is just right.

One of our own members said after the program, "We brought our A-game tonight." And I think she was right. We can't always explain why one program goes a little better than another one. There are so many factors. Could have been the caramel cake. Could have been the wonderful audience. They just radiated excitement during this program. And that gave us an extra boost of energy. We love a gig like that!
