Pickin by the River



 What's in that window?  As I was driving to an event that said "Pickin by the River", I had visions of great junk finds.  

What I found was a fall festival at a lovely church...
Welcoming arms that brought us in to a beautiful place

The doors are open to usher us in

This beautiful church was built in the 1890


         Church of the Redeemer

The Church was built from stones in the area by prisioners from the prision down the road.

The cross came from Italy 


 The history is this church is as beautiful as the people
The orginial builder had the windows
and wood brought over from England and one window from Canada, a Tiffany window
and the wooden structure from England

The minister blessed us with some pickin' of Irish music.  The music washed over me while I remembered the music my girls sang when they were in choir.  One of my favorite Hymns was In This Very Room.
 In this very room there's quite enough love for one like me,
And in this very room there's quite enough joy for one like me,
And there's quite enough hope and quite enough power to chase away any gloom,
For Jesus, Lord Jesus ... is in this very room.

And in this very room there's quite enough love for all of us,
And in this very room there's quite enough joy for all of us,
And there's quite enough hope and quite enough power to chase away any gloom,
For Jesus, Lord Jesus ... is in this very room.
In this very room there's quite enough love for all the world,
And in this very room there's quite enough joy for all the world,
And there's quite enough hope and quite enough power to chase away any gloom,
For Jesus, Lord Jesus ... is in this very room.

I was very blessed this weekend to be in the presence of these sweet people...I am filled with joy to have shared this with you.
Have a great week...Di
