GLORIOUS

That is the only word I can think of to describe Wednesday, Thursday & Friday.

Mickey & I went to Eureka Springs, Arkansas to be close enough to attend a revival in Oak Grove, Arkansas, population 346!!!!

Wednesday night Perry Stone

Thursday night Randy Caldwell

Friday night Matthew Hagee

Oh Wednesday we were joined by these 4 woman
Sandra & Debbie

Wanta Ann & Norma

and our friend, Don (sorry no picture)

Please go to Sandra's blog to read her wonderful insight about the event and the beautiful banner of The Lion of Judah in this church.

The 7 of us had a wonderful meal, provided by the woman of the church, at 5 p.m, then stood in line for about 45 minutes to get into the church at 6:30. The service began at 7 and there were many standing upstairs around balconey rails for the entire service.

Hearing Perry Stone lived up to my expectations and then some.
I have been counting the days every since I knew I was finally going to get to see & hear Perry in person. What a man of God and what an insight into the Word.
Thursday morning Don headed back to Tulsa with a stop to visit his son, daughter-in-law and grandchildren. We headed out for breakfast and saw the girls car at this eatery so we joined them. After breakfast we decided to go see..............



Thorncrown Chapel rises forty-eight feet into the Ozark sky. This magnificent wooden structure contains 125 windows and over 6,000 square feet of glass. It sits atop over 100 tons of native stone and colored flagstone. The chapel's simple design and majestic beauty combine to make it what critics have called "one of the finest religious spaces of modern times."



Us sitting inside.

Wantha, Norma, Debbie, Susan & Sandra.



Mickey & I inside by the entrance door.
This separate Chapel is also at this site but was not opened. Weddings are held here.
Wantha Ann stayed with Mickey & I and the other 3 gals had to head back to Tulsa :o(

I have so much more to share and will continue tomorrow!!!

The chapel is beautiful. I bet it was amazing to see in person.

We knew you would enjoy! Is that Hagee John's son?

Boy I would have loved to heard those speakers. Can't wait to hear more about it.
They have the prettiest chapels in Arkansas. That one is amazing.

Nancy said...

What a fantastic trip and I love the chapel. So beautiful!!!

Debra said...

That is one more beautiful chapel! This is a must see if I ever get up that way!

Barbara said...

Certainly a very unusual design in the chapel.The reason all the old churches here had high spires and towers was so that the church could be seen for miles around.

Brenda said...

What a beautiful and serene-looking chapel. I'm so glad you and Mickey have had such a wonderful time.
Hugs!
