Momma, Barbara B Taylor and my sister

I was proud of my sister for having her heart in the right place and every desire to worship at FBC Greenville South Carolina featuring Babs Taylor Sunday.
But she didn't make it. Her church women were gonna drive over for the 9 oclock but her boy was singing.
Momma woulda been proud of her on both points, but like Sarah Palin, workin church women have to make choices.
Ridin Saturday I had more hopes for this blog as I was makin sense; goin from the New York Knicks to Kareem Abdul Jabbar, whose friend I talked to Friday night, to Blood Done Sign my Name; but as you see it ain't all coming together now.
But I did want to say a good word about these Godly Women.
Oh, I almost started cryin with all this on my mind when I saw Brownie Akins at Bill Glenn's Homemade Potato Soup place Sat Night. She met my sister once and knew my Dad; Brownie, one of Bishop Willimon's finest in Northeast Alabama, where my Dad near the end of the road, before Lyerly.
Lyerly, I almost forgot about Lyerly.
