Some few years ago, I received a phone call ask- ing if me and my band "would come to -Chastworth, Georgia, for a gospel singing. Well, we 'booked the singing. It was "on a Saturday night. So, we +left out on Saturday morn- "ing, drove to Chastworth, Georgia, found the place "where the singing was tak- ing place. The first thing, one of the guys had received some kind of -award, that they presented -to him there that evening before they started the singing. Well, it wasn't an -awful big crowd. We was -the first group there. They was some others came in ,and they brought all of *,them one group at a time to =the stage and they sung. ?And they said, "We've got a group here out of Romans 8:28 Virginia. They'l! be com- ing on next." Well after another group or two sung, "the group from Virginia will be coming on next." Well, after all of them had sung, they started around again. Hadn't got to us yet. So, I told one of my band members, "If we ain't got to sing by 12 o'clock, we're going to leave out of here." Well, it came 12 o'clock and they were still singing. So, we loaded our instruments back on the bus, and headed home. I let one of the band members drive the bus back that night. I guess everybody was kindly napping and when we come off of 40 onto Interstate 81, he failed to make the turn. After a while, I got to looking at some Of the places, and I said, "Don't remember see- WWW.METALROOFOVER.COM by VA CAROLINA BUILDINGS, INC :-_'- ~_ ( - - . _~ MARKET CORNER NEWS .... i~;:!! ' ing these places before. We might ought to stop and see exactly where we are." Well, pulled into a serv- ice station, asked exactly where our location was and they told us that we was on the highway to Cincinnati, Ohio and we had gone about 100 miles out of the way. So we had to turn around, come back and hit 81. Got home the next morning at about 5:30. Me and one more of my band members was all that was able to show up to church that morning. All the years I have traveled for the Lord, that was the worst trip I can ever remember. But I did remember that the Bible said in Romans 8:28, "And we know that all things work together for goo.d to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his pur- pose." So I never questioned God about that situation. Neither did I question the ones that invited us to come and sing. I just learnt from that experience that everything that shines is not gold. Everything that glitters is not a diamond. And everything that rings is not a bell. I just know that Ecclesiastes said there is a time and purpose for everything under Heaven. of coffee, tea, cider or hot chocolate and light refreshments.
