WONDERFUL DEACON'S DINNER

Nice sunny morning but still 24 degrees, brrr.Frosty, still flooded fields.
After morning chores I baked cakes for market tomorrow. The weathermen are forcasting snow for tomorrow afternoon in the higher elevations. Last year on this Saturday which will be Christmas parade day it snowed here. We'll wait and see if that happens again tomorrow.
I went to work at church after lunch,I'll have to finish the work there this afternoon as Hubbie and I have a Deacon's dinner to attend tonight.
I got home just shortly before Hubbie and we started the chores a bit early.
The dinner was at the Western NC Justice Academy. Hubbie is a Deacon at our church and each Deacon has a younger man in the church as his yoke man, they also have 3 or 4 widows or widowers to attend to and all these were invited to the dinner also. There was a total of about 65 people there.This is the first year all these extra folks have been asked to be our guest at this dinner and I must say it made it a much more enjoyable occasion.
Hubbie's yoke man which is #1 son didn't make it to the dinner as they had already scheduled a trip on the Polar Express for g-son and only 1 of the widows ( the lady in silver sweater) were able to attend.
The food was wonderful and it was a great time for all.
While we were gone daughter was busy baking and when we got back she was making a new recipe rum cake.
I iced my cakes and wrapped and labeled everything.
Tonight I am grateful to God for my church family as well as my true family and for His graciousness in allowing so much goodness in my life.
Good Night and God Bless.

You are very blessed and those you touch are doubly blessed.

What a neat way to celebrate the Deacons and those whom they help and work with... Mom and Dad Adams' church does alot to help them these days. It's so important that churches reach out to the people who need help.

Does that mean that your No.1 son will be a deacon someday himself--since his Dad is training him??? That's neat!!!!

Don't think we'll get much snow from this system. It's all east of us --so you all will probably get some. We have rain right now --and may get some flurries tonight...

Have a great weekend. It's going to get bitterly cold.
Hugs,
Betsy
