Happy Walking!" I didn't realize he was serious!!! I heard the door open and close behind me; but our youth worker had been standing outside so I thought it was him coming back in for the morning service. I went to the piano and we began the service as usual. We sang the morning song, and my husband noticed that Brian was not in the service, so after the song was finished he asked, "Where is Brian?" Everyone started looking around; but not me. I gasped! I told my husband about our conversation and he sent our youth worker to go and get him. He was half-way home! Praise the Lord nothing happened to him. I am sure he would have said, "Mrs. Beckles said it was OK."
I learned a very important lesson. Take everything a nine year old says seriously!!!
