Uncle Kelly's ordination service

First of all, let me apologize for the fuzziness of these pictures. I don't claim to be a photographer, and even though I was in the front row, I hate feeling like I'm being a distraction to others by taking pictures. These will give you the general idea of uncle Kelly's beautiful ceremony in his beautiful new church with his SWEET congregation. I was so impressed by the friendliness, warmth, and helpfulness of these people.

Anyway, here's uncle Kelly being asked to kneel so everyone can pray over him. The picture below this one I took because I loved how Lizzie was watching so intently. Everyone else is bowed in prayer, and she is watching every single thing that is going on with her Daddy. She was the best-behaved little lady you could imagine, but I love how she's displaying the heart of a child with her attention and pride for her dad.

This one, is of course for MY Daddee, who has been an organist and/or choir director for longer than I've been alive. Did I mention this congregation SINGS? They sounded fabulous and confident and it swelled my heart.
