She was leaving her car as I drove past the church second-hand store. She’s a church lady volunteer, going over to help out at the store. It made me appreciate church ladies again. The majority are not ordained or on church payroll, but they have the service mindedness of Christ in their hearts. They’re the ones who can be counted on to supply food when needed, to visit the sick and first to sign the volunteer lists. If you’re old enough to remember, the TV show Saturday Night Live made fun of church ladies years ago. Yes, church ladies can be a force but church pastors know who to go to when something needs to be done. So I salute all the white-haired ladies who tease their hair and wear red, red lipstick (at least in Texas) and, when the need is there, show up.
