Papa’s World – Lutheran’s can Jazz it up !

Sunday – we had a surprise – we knew our little grand kids were going to sing –

but we didn’t know it would be with a drum and brass – guitars and the entire adult choir !

Music is essential in my opinion

We had searched for 7 years after we moved South –

for a church –

And we found one in Community Lutheran Church of Sterling Va.

Music has become a very big part of our two services each Sunday.

Our three little grand children have become a part of that music –

Even four year old Bode who can not read –

will memorize the words!

Community Lutheran Church of Sterling

Our choir director Jennifer Quoines –

leads all aspects of the music department .

Under her direction – we have been blessed each and every Sunday –

And these are just normal every day folks –

who she has managed to get to sing in English –

Russian and other languages !

We are a congregation that welcomes many to come through our doors –

COMMUNITY is the place of worship for the community –

And a place of comfort – safety –

Many out side groups use our space –

When we found Community – we found HOME –

When our grand kids were born – they also found a home.

So – on Sunday – we sat and listened – not once but twice – for both services

It was that inspiring – and the kids also sang for both services –

I hope you enjoy the video and song as much as we did –

It is a little long but oh so well done.

Today I share our HOME away from home –

Just another day in my life – “PAPA’S WORLD “

Papas World – some say I am not normal – & I know that!

Ever since I can remember –

the first bird chirping –

My bedroom as I got older after my older brother

left for college –

Was right in the front of the house –

Facing East and those first rays of the Sun.

GOOD MORNING EVERYONE !

I have always awoken either before those first rays

or shortly after!

I am up early each and every day –

first cup of coffee

BEFORE the morning paper hits the pavement!

And it is that way even if I force myself

To stay up and watch the BALL DROP for NEW YEARS!

My wife and I just had this conversation

About how over the years – we use to party –

Now it is CAN WE STAY AWAKE !

And – I am good with 7 to 71/2 hours of sleep –

BUT – it has to be when I am tired ( 8 to 8:30 PM. )

If I go to bed then – I SLEEP – solid –

seems in my later years –

I always wake up once to go to the bathroom! LOL

But – if I stay up –

I wake up the same time each day –

and then I feel terrible the rest of the day!

It’s like I have a internal clock

( I do not use a alarm clock)

If you tell me you want up at a certain time

I WILL WAKE YOU UP with NO alarm clock!

I do not know how that works – but it does for me!

THIS IS ME!
LOL

My wife is opposite ( we do attract each other)

She likes to stay up later – somewhere around 10 to 11:30 PM.

She will wake up from 5 to 6 am. and read her phone –

I think it is her phone –

She is the lead in our book club from church

and she reads the books on line –

BUT – after a half hour or so – SOUND ASLEEP AGAIN! LOL

7:30 to 8:00 AM. she is up and ready to go-

Me – I have done all my face book – email – and my writing

read the entire paper front to back

and had two cups of coffee & ready for shower!

Morning Sunrise
I get to see this
each and every morning

Life has it’s own schedule for everyone

mine happens to be EARLY

And I can remember those mornings back to my childhood

That bedroom not only faced East – but had huge maple trees

with lots of birds – all chirping with the first rays of Sunshine.

There was the main highway as we lived on the main street of a small town

In NWPA.

In the foothills of the Allegheny Mountains

I could hear the trucks going by –

and behind the house the railway tracks

The ” Click – Click ” as the wheels of the train as it passes

Lulled me to sleep each night!

Opposites attract

Yes – I am up at the crack of dawn –

The dawn gets lighter

That is just who I am –

I like my morning solitude

My quiet time – my time to write – think and read.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

Where friends meet the family!

Your day is just starting – mine is hours old –

So Sunday mornings – I get dressed and head to church –

8:15 AM. service

By that time – my day is well on it’s way –

AND I DON’T MIND AT ALL!

Thank you!
