Yesterday at Easter Dinner, we were all talking and having a great time.  Yes!  ALL talking at once.  That’s how it’s done when all the Hurst Family is in one room or at one table. 🙂  We tell the same stories over and over again and laugh in the same places.  You know how it is with families.  Well, several times my Mother-in-Law wanted to tell something and would attempt to but my Father-in-Law kept butting in.  🙂  She finally had enough and looked at him, like only she can do and said, “Would you please HUSH?”  ROTF!  It was hilarious.  Needless to say we all nearly passed out with laughter.  The look on Dad’s face was priceless.

Thank you all for praying for my mother-in-law.  She is doing very well and will be coming home from the hospital in about an hour.  I am fixing them a pot of stew and cornbread for her welcome home dinner.  I hope she feels like eating. 🙂  At least it will smell good when they walk into the house. 🙂

When Nathan and I went up to see her yesterday she was in very good spirits, talking and having fun.  She is quite a character and had us all laughing. 🙂  I’m thankful that all went well and I know that it is due to the prayers of the faithful saints of God.  The many phone calls has meant so much to my father-in-law.  He said he didn’t know how many calls he received yesterday from all over the country.  Thank you also, to those in this area that went up to see mom and pray with her.  It really meant alot to her.  I wouldn’t trade the family of God for anything in this world.  You are the BEST!

Tonight at Bible Study, my father-in-law (B.J. Hurst) sang the special.  My mother-in-law (Dorothy Hurst) played the keyboard.  I followed along on the organ. 🙂  Dad sang, “No One Cared For Me Like Jesus”.  I just have to say, I hope I can sing and hold my notes like he did tonight when I am 76 years old.  He did an incredible job.  However, that is not what I really want to point out about his singing.  When he finished singing,  there was such an awesome spirit of God that once again came into our service.  I often tell our chorale that we must have the anointing that breaks the yoke.  And, we also have to live a life that backs up what we are singing about if we want God to move when we sing.  I saw it and felt in action tonight.  I don’t know about you, but as for me, there is just something about a saint of God that has lived their life for Christ that is so special.  When they sing, it touches me deeply.  I know some people may think, “well, you were just giving an old man something to do so he would feel good”.  Well…not so.  You see, I know the life that my in-laws have lived.  Dad is a good man.  He has given his life to the work of God and has been ever so faithful.  He is one of the most giving individuals I know.  I just think that when the Lord heard B.J. Hurst singing tonight he was impressed. 🙂  No, not by the good voice but by the faithfulness of one of His servants.  Hence,  the Spirit that came to visit us tonight.  The Lord moved in the miraculous with healings and many, many other blessings.  My! My! My!  I thank God for “old” saints of the cross.  When they sing, teach, preach or testify, I sit up and take notice and I believe that the Lord does too.  He did tonight.  🙂
