Sunday, August 30, 2015


On this last Sunday of August hubbie and I were both up earlier than usual on Sunday mornings to get lunch partially prepared. We expect  a long service this morning as there are 7 folks being Baptized, glory be to God  !!

We  are also electing 4 new deacons for the next three years. Our deacons serve three year terms and rotate off for a year before they are eligible for re-election.
Hubbie was on the ballot and later this afternoon they called him and informed him that he was one of the four elected.
Re called and said both the kids are sick so they weren't coming to lunch or church.
Hubbie and I had our quarterly nursery duty today. We had a very easy time as we only had 2 little boys.
The service was actually over on regular time so we all headed home for a spaghetti lunch. I cooked one of our big spaghetti squash to go with the regular noodles.
#1 son's family, daughter and Josh and Aa made it to lunch today. #2 son is golfing and Re is home with the stuffy nosed kids, bless their hearts.
We all had a nice visit and the spaghetti was delicious.
After everyone left hubbie and I relaxed on a cloudy, rainy afternoon.
The Atlantic hurricane season is really heating up now with one storm after another coming off the coast of Africa.
The remains of Erica is going to give the southeast a drenching this week.
And today the 6th system was named as Fred quickly formed as a tropical storm. Wonder where he will go????
I decided to work on the 13th volume of my blog book tonight. Blurb still won't let me do but 3 months instead of the the 6 months I used to do. Maybe it is because I have more pictures now, when I tried to load 6 months I had over 1400 photographs in that 6 month period. I got the first three months of the year downloaded, got the covers all set and the first 15 days of January edited tonight before my eyes got tired.
It is much easier and quicker to get only three months edited !!!
Grateful to God for the blessings of this day and praising His Holy name tonight with the additions to our church family this morning. May all these lives reflect the love and glory of His name forever.
Good Night and God Bless.

So happy to hear about the new additions to your Church. God is good. That is funny as I made a pot of spaghetti for dinner yesterday also. Today I am volunteering at the animal shelter. Every Monday I go there and clean cages, and feed and water the animals in the small animal room. Have a wonderful day. Blessings
