Valuable Lesson

       I learned a very valuable lesson Sunday morning while singing at Valley View Baptist Church in Knoxville, TN.  This was our second time to sing there and we had been looking forward to it for quite some time.  However, the last time we were there I had a little fun at the pastor’s expense. Big mistake!  He had broken his leg a few months before and he showed us a video of his softball accident, and for some reason it just struck me funny. I couldn’t stop laughing at him.

I am a Georgia Bulldog fan and proud of it.  Recently the Georgia Bulldogs and the Tennessee Vols played and the outcome was in favor of Tennessee (Georgia got whooped) 45-19.  So as the pastor was introducing us to his congregation he mentioned the fun I had at his expense. He had not forgotten. He then pulled out a pink Georgia hat and presented it to me in front of his congregation.

The lesson?  Don’t mess with Justin Pratt or any other pastor if you ever think you’ll be going back to their church to sing.


P.S. – I would rather wear a pink Bulldog cap than a Vols hat any day.
