What a night! A large number of California Southern Baptist hispanics met at Shadow Mountain Community Church on Sunday night and had a big celebration. The “Rondalla ‘Voceros de Cristo’” sang, I had not heard that type of music in a long, long time, it bought back memories of when I was young and in Mexico. Dr. Edgar Lopez Bertrand from El Salvador brought a dynamic message. You know it was good when the service was over and you thought “already“? It was good to see friends that I had not seen in a while.

My husband had just left the hotel room, 5 minutes later I got a phone call from the front desk saying “We just wanted to make sure you were there, there is a surprise for you” I said “Give me 5 minutes” Five minutes later there is someone at the door knocking, I opened the door and standing there, was a very nice lady with a beautiful basket from the San Diego Baptist Association.
Basket from San Diego Baptist Association – Me Coloring my hair
I don’t think she was from the hotel, I think she was from the Associational Office. She took a look at me and I laughed, she handed me the basket – I said Thank you and she left. Awkward.
Shadow Mountain Community Church
This Sunday we were at Shadow Mountain Community Church. Wow, what a friendly church. I loved it from the moment we drove into the parking lot. Everybody and I mean everybody was glad to see us or anybody else. Pastor Jeremiah preached about staying consistent. We like things and people to be consistent, like our car, we want it to start every time we turn on the key; we want the people we work with to be consistent, always doing what they’re supposed to do. Then I think back to the first of the year, to my resolutions, I was consistent…. but for how long? It is hard to be consistent, but it is important. The Bible says “You too, be ready for the Son of Man is coming at an hour that you do not expect.” Luke 12:40. We need to be consistent in our Christian Walk. “Lord, help me to exchange consistent unhealthy behavior for healthy ones.”
