I was appointed as a student pastor to a circuit of four Methodist churches.  My first Sunday, I preached at Isabella Methodist Church.  The Jenkins family was in attendance.  That evening I preached at Maplesville and lo and behold the Jenkins showed up.  I preached the same sermon I preached that morning.  Following the Service I did something I have never done since; I apologized to the family for having to hear the same sermon twice.  Carl said, "Preacher, I always tell my wife that if the soup is good the first time, it's good warmed over."  I thanked him for that.  Later, I realized that he never said it was good the first time.  Maybe you've heard my story about my visit to Spain before.  If so, I hope you will still find something in it that will brighten your day.
