Emily did my hair and my make up. Mother, you can't let Dad see you looking your old haggardly self, they say. 19 year olds don't mince words. Let me help you. If you were in NY you would go to the beauty parlor. Em transformed my bathroom into an exclusive beauty parlor. It was an adorable time between us that we rarely get in these days. It takes a long time to transform the lady of the house into a date. It was worth the while. It turned out to be a date with Emily in the day and a date with my sweetiepie at night.
A Flawless Performance
We all know that Larnelle needs no pomp and circumstance. He could go out there without a single thing and he nearly did. He had an awesome pianist and his voice. He dotted every "i" and crossed every "t". He "could be glad", all of our hopes were in the Lord and I am always grateful for the reminder. It was a special valentines day dinner, at the church. Larnelle showed out and sang, at least one new song in the bunch that I hadn't heard before. I wanted to hear "Blessing and Honor". He didn't sing that one, but he sang alot of my favorites. I don't think that there is a song that Larnelle sings that is not one of my favorites. But, my favorite of the favorites is the "Creation Medley". He sang that one and I was glad to hear it.
God knows how to comfort and bless, even in a "far country" LOL. We go to a church that is so at home now. A small taste of Brooklyn Tab... and other places that are sweet and special to us and people who love God and want to serve Him. I am grateful for the loves that we have found down here in neighbors, friends and church family. I miss everybody at home, but God shows out, more than Larnelle and to have a Larnelle concert come and visit me, was like a special present from God.
I am so grateful!
