Be Good and Behave!!

I had a fantastic weekend. I was in fellowship with the Friendship Baptist Church in celebration of Pastor Kevin Pullam's 8th pastoral anniversary. Starting with a luncheon given Saturday in honor of the First Lady, Sis. LaTonya D. Pullam that was really really nice with good food, gifts, words of appreciation and (my favorite) $$$$$$$. Saturday evening an outstanding musical was held in honor of the pastoral family. Sunday morning worship, Pastor Arthur Lane of St Matthew Baptist Church of the city was his guest preacher. I was unable to attend that service because my church was having our Annual Men's Day program. Pastor Leonard James of Austin, Texas preached in our (SJFBC) service. Pastor Kevin's final service was at 3 p.m. and we had a grand time in the Lord. Pastor Dr. C. E. Richarson Sr. of Calvary First Baptist Church of the city did an awesome job. A special tribute was given by his father Pastor W. L. Pullam (and he sure did preach). I do believe Pastor Pullam and his family was made very happy and encouraged by the acts of kindness rendered.

Well, I am going to be out of pocket for a couple of weeks. I will be attending our State Convention this week. We will leave the convention headed for our vacation in Nevada, which will be for an additional week. I am ssssooooo ready to go. We usually take this week alone but this year my husband's brother and his wife will be going with us, as well as my mother and my aunt (my mom's sister). We look forward to the fellowship.

To my Sons, you all behave yourselves while Mama is away. Play fair and share. I am leaving Tony in charge until I get back. Fitts, you and Spoon stay on your own side of the room. Lance (the tattler) will report to me everything that's going on. I already know that Mcghee, Ed, Clinton and Reggie will be neutral so don't sway them. I don't have to worry about Kevin and Kraig they NEVER get in trouble, it has always been the "other" fella's fault (Aaron & Lane). Study hard and do your homework!! I expect nothing but great reports from the congregation :-)

I am REALLY going to miss you a lot. I will be thinking of you. I might be tempted to check on you via laptop or business center. I promised the group I would just relax and stay off the computer. Keep us in your prayers and I will do the same. Be obedient. I'll be back soon. I love you.

Mother Pullam, what a wonderful post!!!! You are the best and you have made my blog experience so meaningful!

GOD moves in mysterious ways, this is my opportunity to ask of you to be a cyberspace Mother? This will complete my acceptance as a true blogger before the Master.

In the church my family attends I have a Church Mother, Mother Miller. Your blogs are warm and inviting just like a Mothers Love.

I realize I’m not a Pastor, but I do Love the Lord JESUS Christ.

Have a wonderful vacation.

Enjoy!!!

I will be sure to follow your instructions, like a good son ought. Thank you for sharing yourself with us. Your wisdom will be missed. I can't wait until your next post. Enjoy your vacation! You deserve it.

Mom your spirit is just infectious..even through the blogosphere one can tell you are just a real joy to be around. I hope you and your family have an enjoyable and safe trip. What a blessing to still have your mother and aunt, along with your husband to enjoy this much needed break.
I will try my best to keep the family in line and make sure all chores are done, but mom you are doing such a great job of encouraging us to behave, that I really don't think revolt is even an issue....lol...

Truly, enjoy yourselves and I will be praying for your safe return.
And oh yea, you know what they say about Vegas..."what happens in Vegas......" You got it.

Be Encouraged.

Mother, you and Pops have a great time on vacation and do everything that you guys want to do. We are all the better because you are apart of our lives.

Why is Tony in charge? And most of all, why am I the tattler? And how come Kraig and Kevin don't do anything, they ain't perfect. LOL.

You guys be safe. Hear from you soon.

Pastor Kraig L. Pullam said...

I am glad to know that you have made is safely to your destination. Just as I am grateful that you had a grand time this past weekend. I will be praying for you!

Glad to know you had a wonderful weekend and we know your heart was overflowing with joy for the accomplishment in ministry of Pastor Pullam, may god rchly bless you and Him try to get some rest at the convention if you can (LOL)

Pastor Kevin L. Pullam said...

Hey Mom,

I am grateful that you were able to be a part of "our weekend." It was that much more encouraging to have you around. The Lord was good to us and we are the better for it.

Now... I guess we have NO choice but to accept the "assignments" we have been given. Lance, I am certainly not perfect. And, I think this will be the ONLY time you ever hear mother use my name and not getting into trouble in teh same phrase. But hey... I'll take it.

Love you Mom... Be safe and have fun.

Pastor W.L. Pullam said...

Well my dear, I am happy to see that you got all the fellas straight and made all of the necessary assignments to keep the peace while we are away L O L! It is just a blessing to be part of such a wonderful blog family. Truly,God is good. Of course I got one thing to say about you going the whole week and not getting on the laptop. Now, this I gotta see. But I guess I will be between the rock and the hard place since we have been reminded that "what happens in ..... stays in ..... L O L. So, your secret will be safe with me :).

It's good to know that you guys are taking some time off and I know you will enjoy. I have been busy trying to do this school work and working both at home and on my job so I have neglected to get on here. I look forward to your return. Enjoy and may God Bless you all on your trip. Love ya
