Beautiful sunny morning as I looked out over our pasture on the way to church today. Had a wonderful Christmas season beginning sermon on "hope" after lighting the first Advent candle of hope. Every Sunday as I sit in my pew,funny how everyone has a special place they sit every Sunday, I thank God for my church family,I grew up with a lot of these people,my kids grew up and were Baptized with some of these young people,I look forward every week to seeing and talking with neighbors and family,to me there is a relaxed,warm feeling of Christian love that flows through the sanctuary when we all get together and I am very thankful.
Lunch was quite,daughter, #1 son's family,hubbie and I. After lunch d-in-love had a photo shoot and hubbie needed #1 son to help him,so g-son went to the park with daughter and me. He loved walking Bernie and playing on "his playground"(have no idea where that came from).We thought we were going to get rained out soon after we arrived,but after a slight sprinkle we were blessed with a beautiful rainbow,and we could actually see both ends of it!!!
We watched the sunset on the park as daughter finished her 7 mile run and then we headed home to meet mom who was just finishing grocery shopping.
We had a light supper of leftovers and daughter and I organized our angel tree Christmas gifts and she started wrapping them as I had to complete an Avon order and get it ready to send off in the morning. I'm trying hard not to get depressed listening to the weather report tonight,more rain for tomorrow means no work on my roof or anything I don't guess. I'm sure the builders hate to hear it also as they aren't getting paid when they don't work. I'm just getting anxious as I thought for sure it would all be finished before Christmas but now I'm not so sure. I want to get in the mood to put up my Christmas decorations but it's hard when I'm having to dodge boards and climb on and off the porch with no steps yet,grrrrrrr!!!
I know,I know, Lord forgive me it will happen all in your good time!!!! I have a busy day tomorrow,lots of errands and chores to do and I WILL work on my attitude.
Lord I pray for patients and understanding always, You have blessed me beyond belief and I need to relax and enjoy my wonderful full life. Good Night.

Beautiful photographs. We're having some light rain here in the Brevard area but heavier is expected. Here's hoping it will clear up soon.
