There is something extra special about being from a small town. ❤️
The flowers on the alter yesterday at All Saints Episcopal Church in Grenada, Mississippi were offered to the glory of God in memory of Mitchell Bays Turner.
My friend Stephanie Tierce LeClair read my post on Saturday about my grief nightmare for Mitchie. She and her mother had alter guild for the church that I grew up in and she chose to place the flowers to remember my precious baby boy.
This is the alter and church where I learned to pray and love God.
It’s where I made some of my dearest lifelong friends in the EYC youth group.
It’s where I would beg out of going to “big church” so that I could help keep the babies in the church nursery.
It’s where I sang in the choir and almost fainted a few times because Episcopalians kneel so much in our services. 😂
It’s where we held my late Mama’s funeral and the “Daughters of the King” women’s prayer group regularly lets me know that me and my sons are still on the prayer list.
All Saints Episcopal Church is special to me. I often wear necklace that’s a beautiful replica of the alter cross made by artist Ione Calhoon
I love my small town of Grenada, Mississippi and her people. It’s a place like no other and I’m thankful to come from there. ❤️❤️
