Shout Out 4: Pittsfield Assembly & Southern Fried Sunday • Pittsfield, IL

Danny & I had been visiting Pittsfield Assembly off and on some soon after we married in 2011, but while spending this past winter in Florida... we found ourselves struggling to find a church we really liked and turned to watching their sermons via internet every chance bandwidth speeds would allow.

Since returning back to Illinois a couple months ago… one of the things we most looked forward to was getting back to church… specifically back to Pittsfield Assembly and I must add that I'm really looking forward to getting to know everyone better there and super excited to see what God's got in store for this amazing group of people. I cannot say enough good things about this church -> Love, Love, Love.

Shelby (our youngest daughter), her fiancee Duane & grand-daughters Annie & Allie have also recently started coming & told me just a couple weeks ago that this might very well become their home church. So… When the church recently held a 'Southern Fried Sunday' complete with an egg hunt for kids, I decided to invite our daughter Ashley from St. Louis, MO. She as well as her boyfriend Dan & grand-daughter Kaydance came.

The following is Pittsfield Assembly's Facebook Page announcement &

What follows is some images I captured of the egg hunt & some amazing fun times the girls had splashing in the parking lot puddles following the hunt. As you can see by the smiles… We all had a phenomenal time!

Both girls were absolutely overjoyed with their treasures...



...But what happened immediately following this brought tears of tremendous pride to my heart. You see another little boy didn't have quite the success as my grand-daughters and began crying. The second they heard him, both girls rushed to his side asking, "What's the matter?" Sobbing, he lifted his bag to reveal it was mostly empty with only 2 eggs. It was as if no words were needed, the girls understood immediately and began digging their own prized eggs out and happily gave the other little boy several eggs for his own… they never even hesitated to consider what they might be giving up… but instead were overjoyed to share and bring a smile to his face. *Sigh*… If only the whole world could be 1/2 as caring and compassionate as these little young ones were that day.


Danny, Dan & Duane might growl at me for sharing this image…
but we gals had a good giggle over the 'Chicken Shack' scene :-)
