Chapter 13: Humming "I Surrender All" (In the Key of D)


Sparwars at WhitesburgBIRDIE –
Year three, first church.
By now we had established an annual teen event called: SPARWARS!

Vernard, a church deacon, taught karate so we built an event which culminated in a big karate feat.

Vernard laid his head on one chair and his heels on another. James, another friend, laid concrete slabs on his unsupported middle section and set them on fire. Then James busted the concrete on Vernard’s chest with a sledge hammer!

Now what teen wouldn’t love that?

Every Spring we made the 7-hour trip to Paducah, KY to record a soundtrack for a new musical.

1982 – Reflections
1983 – Prodigal Prince
1984 – Meet Me Here
1985 – Not Just Another Love Story
1986 – Papa, Me and the Gift of Love

Year four I told my daddy that I felt led to write a show that was set during the days of World War II. He proudly served in the army during that war so I asked him to tell me about life back then. That’s when I wrote, “Not Just Another Love Story.”

Chapter 16: When God Delivers Cookies to Your Door

pikeville shared officeRebecca and Birdie shared an office and a home provided by the church. Folks say that creative people often have messy desks. If so, these are two of the most creative people you’ve ever met!

The house phone rang. Mom was visiting so she answered it. An older gentleman replied: “I’m calling for the girls.”
“They’re at the church. You can reach them there.”
“I won’t disturb them. Tell them that Walter P. Walters called. They are doing a great job. I thank God for them.”

Walter P. Walters was an influential business man and a member of our new church. More importantly, he had a heart for God. He was elderly. I don’t know how old he was. Seems the older I get, the younger “old” seems!

While some from his generation complained because the growing number of youth were loud, dressed differently and left the church messy, Mr. Walters praised God for them!
