Not Something You See Every Sunday

I play the piano for a small country church in neighboring Paris, Kentucky. Hopewell Presbyterian is one of the oldest churches in Bourbon County, since the late 1700's.  I'm betting it's seen many, many things over the years, but I'm guessing this particular thing is a first.  Do you see it?


This is where I sit, at my beloved old 1907 Kurtzmann piano that is still going strong.  And the lamb in the picture is Lila.  Almost all of our lambs have attended church with me.  Some stay longer than other (Lila, Liddy, Bullwinkle, Biscuit).  Some spend more time outside (Keebler, Maisie, Baaxter).

I'd link to all their church stories, but it's getting late and I need to hit the hay.  You can use the search box for "church" "piano" "Easter" or "Hopewell" and probably find most of them.  Or scroll back through each lamb's name in the labels.  That's a fun rainy afternoon activity :-).

A little closer view.  Look out the window.  Do you see it?

Yep, that's a four leaf clover.  Stuck in a spider web.  On the outside of the window.  Next to my piano.  It looks like it has been pressed.  It's flat and brown.

Where on earth did it come from?

It's a gift from God - just like his lambs (and dare I say it in this secular age ? I will.) And His Lamb. To you.

I looked up tiny Hopewell church on the web. So very cute. So is your piano photo of Lila.

Thanks for the "rainy day activity" suggestion. There's a bit of rain in my area right now, and for the next, oh, 30 hours.

Well if that's not a God thing I don't know what is. I absolutely love that little church and I'm envious every time you post about it.

Totally from God. And He knew you would see it, smile and feel his blessings. After all, he's blessed you with all the wee lambies that have graced your life.

That four leaf clover is perfect, you must have had a strong wind. I would go to your church if I lived in that area. :)

I had hoped it might still be there on Sunday...but it wasn't. Wonder where it will show up next :-).
