Praise Night

We are just getting home from the Praise Night at the Oakfield Methodist Church. My heart is overflowing with the love that was poured out on us from everyone there. It is not every day that your community comes together in such an awesome way. I wish I could tell you every detail of the night...but there were so many blessings it would take me all night! There were groups who sang, children who sang, people who played the piano, teen bands, choirs, soloists...all praising God with beautiful music. At the end of this amazing evening, the crowd each lit a candle as our family was asked to look out and see the "lights" and faces of all of those who have been praying. A moment I will never forget...

We were also blessed to see a slideshow of pictures of our family while the beautiful candles flickered in the crowd and the song "Go Light Your World" sung by Chris Rice was played. I managed to say a few words of thanks and felt like a sputtering mess, but hopefully my gratitude and appreciation shown through my emotion!

THANK YOU to everyone who helped organize this event, to everyone who shared their music, and to all who came to praise with us. The focus of this night was to come together to glorify He who has been with us each step of the way. I'm so overwhelmingly honored to call this community my own and to raise my family among such caring people. With great love, Megan


  1. That sounds so amazing! God is so good! My brother is a worship leader at a church and he is coming to my Mom's church tom. night for a night of worship only. I can't wait, I'll be praising God for all the awesome things He has done and will continue to do for you guys!

    HUGS from Texas!

  2. It was a lovely evening, Megan. You did well speaking and holding that handsome boy! Remember that the lights you saw are just a minute portion of all the people praying for the Williams family.
