Another nice sunny, warm morning after a rainy evening which left another 1/4 inch of rain in the gauge. I was up early to get the chores done and get a mac & cheese with ham casserole made before church. These take an hour to cook so I cooked it this morning and left it in a warm oven.
Church was good today, continuing the Christmas story in Luke 2, 22-40. We also commissioned the senior pastor and 4 other church members who are leaving on a middle east mission trip tomorrow for 2 weeks. We are praying for them.
Back home everyone made it to lunch except #2 son and Tif who were doing some after Christmas shopping today. Since they work for the PO and work 6 days a week all their shopping has to be done on Sundays.
I made some mashed potato pattys to go with the casserole and we had fresh kale greens to top it off.
I also made my special blueberry jello for dessert. We all enjoyed it very much.
After Aa's family went home for naps and daughter went to take Josh some lunch since he had to make another trip to the ER this morning with his stomach still bothering him. They said he still had some lingering bacteria from the virus he had last week and put him on some antibiotics.
#1 son's family stayed and watched the Panthers vs Falcons football game with us. The Panthers lost their first game of the season today. G-son and I played games while the game was on.
After the game they left to go up to church and shoot some hoops on this 71 degree sunny afternoon.
Hubbie and I took all our outside Christmas decorations down and got them all in the shed before the rain starts again tonight. The yards look so bare they look kind of funny now without all the colorful decorations.
After chores hubbie and I ate leftovers for supper then #2 son and Tif came by for a short visit.
To continue the decade series since this month we have a picture laden December back in 2005 since #1 son and d-in-love got married that month. Bat Cave Baptist church was beautifully decorated.
Got a pic from d-in-love of a nice break through with g-daughter this evening. She has been putting up a fight about sleeping laying flat down but here she is in the co-sleeper having a nice nap.
As this last Sunday in the year 2015 ends I am very grateful for my family and friends that help make life so enjoyable . I also am humbly grateful for the love of Jesus Christ and for the grace He shows me each and every day as I search for His guidance in all I do.
God Bless, Good Night and Happy New Year
