Wed. Words: Emily at Church

Beautiful Savior Pulpit

“There’s a storm comin’!  I tell you a storm!” Pastor Grimley yelled, pounding the pulpit.  “ARE YOU READY?”

The congregation shouted Amen, Praise the Lord…waking Emily from her nap on the pew.  Mama was standing, being one of the Amen group.

Emily rolled and then planted her chubby little feet on the maple floor.  The walking thing was still iffy, but she had the crawl-ing down.  Distance to the pulpit wasn’t far at all, and at a fast crawl, Emily could cover it before Mama noticed.

And, off she took, under pews, between legs, around feet, past purses.  Oh, Emily knew she was fearless, and this would be another time she found freedom, with her white diaper bottom wagging behind.

“Can you make a joyous noise to the Lord??” Pastor roared. Cue the organist, who joined in with a chorus from different hymns.

Emily reached the pulpit and pulled herself up, pounding on the cross.

Root out sin!  Let joy rise as a fragrance to the Lord!” He raised his arms, pointing to heaven.


Emily plopped down on her bottom, onto a loaded and ripe diaper.  You betcha!  Emily clapped and cooed as Mama came running.

    1. My creeping girl made it to a kitchen cabinet while I was on the phone next to her, and she found jar of mustard, which she dropped. Keep eyes on the target.

  5. Memories are flooding back of taking my two year old daughter, Sarah, to church. I did not return with her till she was seven and potty trained (whichever came first).

    1. I understand that last line so completely. At one point, I decided I would have to bring a change of diapers to her high school.

      Excellent.

  8. I like this a lot; I can see Emily in my mind, racing for the pulpit as fast as she can, getting away from Mum, revelling in a moment's freedom.

  9. Nicely done, Susan. I'm thinking that "pews" could be a key word :)

    Enjoy the rest of the weekend, Susan.
