Finding Beauty Friday on Scenic Sunday

I'm linking this post to "Friday Finding Beauty" event on Claudia's blog Dipity Road. Today all the participating blogs can post whatever they like on their blog that touched them in some way and made them feel, see, or appreciate a moment of beauty in their lives.

Scenic Sunday is a photo meme of the scenery. It can be landscapes, buildings, flowers, or anything you feel is a scenery photo. This meme will be held every weekend. To join, just post your scenery shots on your blog and link back to Scenic Sunday.
Today I'd like to share a special place and a few beautiful friends, I am a member of Clear Branch Baptist Church and I love the fact that it is a small country Church. I have been a member here for 40 years and was just heart broken when we lost our old Church that was built in the late 1800's to termites and just knew I'd never get used to this new one, you can read the story here..
(Updated with picture of the old Church, group picture taken in 1984)
but I did, even though I will always miss the older Church this one is beautiful also. It's the people and not the building that really counts.
Yesterday we had our monthly Senior Breakfast and as always the same little group have several more folks who are over 60 but refuse to admit they are now in the Senior group. DH won't go either, not that he doesn't admit he's getting old, he just doesn't do mornings and isn't real big on socializing, (yes we are a total opposite couple.) Mr and Mrs Jimmy Smith and the Preacher Bro Wayne did all the cooking and it was a fine breakfast, we had a devotional by Bro Wayne and was entertained by Pete Stanley playing the piano. We had a very beautiful morning outside and inside.
Betty and Jimmy Smith planned and cooked our meal, they are a very sweet couple, Mr Jimmy is in very poor heath but he never gives up..
Mr Jimmy Smith and Bro. Wayne discussion the situation
Me, MS Margie Faye 76, Mrs Smith 77, Betty Smith 64, Ms. Edna Miller 89 1/2, she was our oldest mother and made sure we knew it was 1/, and Ms Charles Burk..she's not newly weds, Mr Paul and never been married and Mrs Smith was a widow when they met 3 yrs ago and married.
2 of our oldest and longest members, Mr Paul Smith and Mr. Pete Standley, they both joined Clear Branch as young teens in 1941
everyone enjoyed the food
Even my DIL who is the Church Secretary and Bro Wayne
Mr Pete plays so pretty and he goes to all the area Nursing Homes and plays for "the old folks" every Sunday.
Now to me friendships and fellowship like this is "found beauty".
And the pictures below are what we get to see every Sunday morning or any time we are blessed to attend this beautiful Country Church and when the Lord calls me home my mortal body will be laid to rest in this beautiful place.
