God's People

Within a 14 year period, I went from a Dixie delta farm To a Chicago asphalt jungle, to a dairy land farm in Wisconsin. From dairy land back to the jungle and from there, I returned to Dixie land. From there I pushed westward to the streets of San Francisco and on into the central valley of Sacramento Not far from where someone looked towards the foothills and said, "There's gold in them there hills". They did find gold in those hills, But I have lived in this gold-fevered land for 33 years, and gold is not what I have found here. I have lived in these United States from the south near the Gulf Of Mexico, to the north near the Great Lakes, and on westward Some three to four blocks from the Pacific Ocean. I have been Rewarded with good people everywhere I have lived, but none Have I been acquainted with more than these among whom I live And worship. I tell you, I have found a land rich with most loving and beautiful People ever I have seen. They were not discovered on a street corner Nor at a place of employment, but scores of them have been found In the sanctuaries of churches. In my church a few years ago, the speaker said, "The best people In the world are those sitting in the pew next to you". I am fortunate To be among such people, and I could not agree more. My wife and I were with two of them today. I could say more about them, but Two words best describe our experiences with them. They give Themselves MAGNANIMOUSLY and love LAVISHLY. 092719PoSoup
