This is what greeted me at church on Sunday!
Ms. Montana, eat your heart out!
This was after they had stood on the curb and screamed and cheered when I got out of the car. After I’d walked about 10 steps they came running out into the parking lot and mobbed me with hugs. In the second picture, you can see some adults that were cheering, but chose not to run into the parking lot. And, then more kids came running after I took the pictures. You should have seen the older adults walking into church! They would turn around and look to see who these kids were so excited about seeing! I think it was pretty obvious that it was the chick behind them with the red face.
Several of the kids started the MFFC (Michelle Farmer Fan Club) after I sang a solo in church years ago. Now that I play drums, etc. they really get into it. But, honestly, the feeling that I’ve somehow made a connection with these kids makes me feel just fabulous.
It was an amazing feeling. God has blessed me so much. People throw out the term “church family” a lot these days, but I will tell you the truth from my standpoint. Coming back Sunday to all those kids, and then bunches of kids and adults inside that were so happy to see me, truly felt like coming home.
Now, if they had just had my slippers and pipe ready for me…
