Because my grandson Louis was on a mid term holiday from school we paid a visit to Clydebank to the market and while there, we went into the Salvation Army hall for lunch... As we walked into the dining hall there was someone playing this piece of music on the piano - it brought back memories of listening to it when I was small, my Mum loved it as did her mother (my Nana) What an atmosphere there was in the hall - it's an amazingly beautiful piece of music - enjoy!
The minister was preoccupied with thoughts of how he was going to ask the congregation to come up with more money than they were expecting for repairs to the church building. Therefore, he was annoyed to find that the regular organist was sick and a substitute had been brought in at the last minute. The substitute wanted to know what to play."Here's a copy of the service," he said impatiently.. "But, you'll have to think of something to play after I make the announcement about the finances."During the service, the minister paused and said, "Brothers and Sisters, we are in great difficulty; the roof repairs cost twice as much as we expected and we need $4,000 more. Any of you who can pledge $100 or more, please stand up.
"At that moment, the substitute organist played "The Star Spangled Banner." And that is how the substitute became the regular organist!
When you carry the Bible, Satan gets a headache..... When you open it, he collapses..... When he sees you reading it, he faints..... When he sees that you are living what you read, he flees..... And when you are about to forward this message.... He will try and discourage you.. I just defeated him! Any other takers?
