We welcomed the arrival turn of this new year on our knees last night. Being in church at the stroke of midnight in thanks, praise, and hopefulness is a powerful action. It's always good to be surrounded by like minded people who love the Lord, and each other. I'm blessed to have a church community that is not too big, and not too small-it's just right.
When we got home, champagne was waiting.
Now, on to dinner! Hoppin' John (black-eyed peas and rice), stewed tomatoes, collard greens, potato salad, golden fried pork chops, and cornbread is on my menu today. Hope you are enjoying a good meal (no more fried foods after today) surrounded by those you love.
