Excellent Morning Service
and Nice Afternoon
September 20, 2015

This morning Ron and I were up early but took time to talk about some news items, the Sunday School lesson he was preparing, etc.  We sat down to breakfast together and talked, which we don't do often since Ron does not usually eat breakfast.  We were running really close to make it to class on time. 

As usual, I left to go get Mom for church and while I was at her house, took some Tylenol for a bad headache.  At church the third mission group to go to Nepal following their very serious earthquake, is back and gave a report on their trip.  It was an excellent group of folks (5 men and 2 women) who went and it was so encouraging to hear their reports and then to talk to the two ladies who went after the service was over. 

Their trip is a reminder that in times of trouble, people's hearts are often more tender and open to hearing that God loves them.  People are turning to the Lord God here and on the other side of the world.  In our service there were two baptisms today.  It was a long service, but I am so glad I was able to be there.
The birds sure love this fountain on hot days
After church Mom, Ron and I went to lunch at Luby's.  Mom usually goes with a group called The Lunch Bunch, but several of her friends who normally attend were not there today, so she went with us.  We had a good visit as we ate some yummy food.  Then we took Mom home as rain clouds gathered, but we only got sprinkles from them.

Following lunch, I took a 2 hour nap and Ron slept much longer than that.  After that I checked on the things in the yard and then started working on my quilt again.  I got three rows done today and need only one or two more before it is the size I want. 

Hearing was a problem often today but it may be related to the allergy problems I am having since I am off all allergy medications prior to the allergy tests this coming Thursday afternoon.  It has been a good day and I can't believe the weekend is gone!

  1. The quilt is lovely! I like the diagonal stripes.

    1. Thanks. They really show up with a good contrast. I have enjoyed working on it.
