ONCE IN A BLUE MOON

Woke to another beautiful day this morning.
As I did the chores before church I thought about how extremely lucky I am to enjoy this beautiful weather.
Church was a lesson from Luke about the beginning of the journey of the birth of John the Baptist.
We sang all the old traditional Thanksgiving songs which I love and it just makes me feel very thankful for the life I have been blessed with. Thank You Lord !
We had lunch with #1 son ,#2 son and g-son today as the girls were both working .
Spent the afternoon just relaxing. It was a little cool outside about 57 degrees but the sun was wonderful.
Tonight as I shut all the chickens in their respective houses I watched the moon rising over the horizon. Tonight is a "Blue Moon" because it is the 3rd full moon of the fall season.Glad the clouds held off so this moon could be seen. As daughter and I stood and talked you could almost see the moon slowly rising higher and higher in the sky.

Tonight I watched Carolina loose another b-ball game. Maybe I'll watch Duke tomorrow night !
Then I did what I only do maybe 2 Sundays of the year ,I baked cakes. Since I will be going to market on Tuesday this week and I have a bunch of orders to get done and daughter will be baking tomorrow night ,tonight was the night.
There was no service at our church tonight. All the churches in the community take turns hosting a community Thanksgiving service and this years was at a Hispanic church.
We have never attended this community service because I always have to work on this Sunday night.

Today was a sad day........
This is the body of the young soldier from an earlier post that arrived at the local airport this morning. Bless this family, I have heard them talking on the news several times and they seem to be handling the death of their son well. He had wanted to be in the Army since he was 6 years old,so they have the comfort of knowing he died doing what he wanted to do.
God bless them and all the young men and women serving overseas in harms way.
Good Night and God Bless.

I didn't know that about the moon. Yes, my heart goes out to anyone in the service.
