Still Amazed

Still amazed. I said, "Amen!" to close my prayer on Wednesday night. Usually we disburse, but as I went over to my seat I noticed no one was leaving. For the next 15 minutes just standing, we experienced a strong and quiet hovering of the Spirit. Gentle tears, a gentle chorus, words from God, and finally He let us go, and we went home.
