Today's song is by one of Mom's favorite songs Sunshine on My Shoulders, vocals and words by another favorite Mr. John Denver, starring Mom's favorite feline, Moi.
Sunshine on my shoulder makes me happy sunshine in my eyes can make me cry squint
Sunshine on the water looks so lovely
Sunshine almost always makes me high sleepy
If I had a day that I could give you I'd give you a day just like today If I had a song that I could sing for you I'd sing a song to make you feel this way If I had a tale that I could tell you I'd tell a tale sure to make you smile If I had a wish that I could wish for you I'd make a wish for sunshine all the while.....
Sunshine all over makes me happy......
We hope you enjoy the video below of this very lovely and timeless song. Thanks for stopping by today Madi and Mom
Happy Steeple Sunday....these lovely flowers are from us to you!!
Apex Baptist Church began in the early 1870's when residents of what was then called Log Pond met in members homes each week. In 1873, Log Pond was incorporated as Apex and the small congregation of 28 people built their first church on South Salem Street. As the congregation grew, the need to expand resulted in a new church building which was constructed on the present site in 1912. I expect in 1912 the corner it sits on was a sleepy country road. However, today it is a bustling intersection on a major artery through the city. These pictures were taken while waiting at the stoplight of that intersection. I'm not sure what the little compartment is on the right. There are floodlights there and what appeared to be some plantings.
They expanded again in 1951 and 1961 to add more Sunday School rooms.
In 1987 the sanctuary pictured below was completed to replace the aging 1912 sanctuary and in 2000 their new educational facility, family life center and fellowship were completed behind the sanctuary.
The Town of Apex is expected to triple in size during the next decade.
They are certainly keeping up with the times. They have a blog and are on FaceBook.
