Preaching = Pie

"And He said to them, " Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation."
~Mark 16:15

This past Sunday,
our regular Pastor was away. 
 Mark, our son-in-law, 
was asked to do the honors and preach.
This was his first time to share the message.
Mark worked long and hard for days.
On top of all this,
 he  runs his own family business,
from home.

To celebrate his wonderful accomplishment,
the family came over after church 
to have some relaxing, family time.

I surprised Mark with a homemade
Blackberry pie.

 We have a thorn-less, Blackberry bush in our backyard.
It is just now, showing ripe berries.
With just enough for two pies!

 This all, who we could wrangle up,
 for the pie picture.
Baby Isaac, Kimmy, Ila May, Mark and Levi.
(missing is Lulu and Silas & Papa)
Well done Mark!!
click here to listen to his sermon on Personal Holiness 

"Whoever speaks, is to do so as one who is speaking the utterances of God; whoever serve is to do so as one who is serving by the strength which God supplies; so that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belongs the glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen"
~1 Peter 4:11~


  1. That is wonderful that Mark was able to bring the message on Sunday. I will listen to it later today.

    You reminded me of our Pie and Praise that we have at church every Thanksgiving. Preaching and pie seem to go together.

  2. I look forward to listening to Mark's message. We are trying to give up sugar here so the pie just made me long for a piece.

  3. What a blessing to be able to sit under the Word being taught and preached by your SIL! God is good! The pies look yummy too! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  4. Oh, yummy. I love blackberries. Never had a pie, but my mother can rock a cobbler. I'm looking forward to listening to your son's message. Thanks for sharing with us.

  5. Now you're talking my favorite pie! What a sweet surprise. I'm sure he know's he's your fav son-in-law! :D I plan to listen to that. I think it is a timely subject for this gal.

  6. I do love blackberries. I will bookmark the link and look forward to hearing your son-in-law's message on a very important subject.
