Woke up this morning and went to church. Our first service was at Gilford, in Northern Ireland. We had around 22 people in attendance. We met some awesome people. Today is Mother’s Day, so we had a tribute to the mother’s then Bro. MacFarland preached. Sis. Mac did the tribute and then their daughter Shawna spoke; they both did very good. The message today was ‘When you cannot get out, Jesus can get in’. Bro. Mac spoke about how we get into situations sometimes and we cannot see how to get out or the end of it…but God will meet us in the middle of it and see us through. Examples he used were the Three Hebrew Children, in the fiery furnace; Daniel in the Lions Den; Paul & Silas in prison. He also spoke about how God will not put more on us than we can bear, and if we find ourselves in situations that we cannot bare…then we’ve probably brought it upon ourselves. It was a great service.
After service we had ‘tea and biscuits’ (and some bread) with the members of the church then we headed to Dublin with the Mac’s. Stopped by McD’s on the way down, had lunch in the car, and hit the road running.
At Dublin we had an awesome worship service then Seneatha and I stepped out during Sunday school and walked around Dublin for awhile. We went to O’Connell Street and walked for about four blocks looking at all the shops and buildings. We saw the Spire of Dublin along with several other cool things. We took Peyton and Kirsten along for the journey. After walking both sides of the street we headed back to the church to meet up with Riley and Tara. We then had fellowship with the Dublin church, had more ‘tea and cake’, then headed home. We made a pit stop at Domino’s pizza for a quick bite to eat (in the car) and came home.
We kicked back in our pj’s and unwound from our day out. It was a beautiful day…and now I can say that I’ve walked the streets of Dublin.
