Every Wednesday night, during the prayer service, the pastor asked the same question, “Do we have any praises to God this week?”
That’s when Bobby stood up, “Yep! I do!”
Bobby’d just been laid off after working for 30 years with the same company. It was heartbreaking, how it happened, with him being sent home on medical leave to recover from major depressive disorder and panic attacks.
That night, in front of the whole church, Bobby belted out, “After 30 years of slavery, I’m free, and that’s worth celebrating!”unique, and lives by the rules of her heart.
