A very nice sunny 38 degree morning to start this Sunday. I was up getting the ham in the pressure cooker and the sweet potato casserole in the oven before I headed outside to do the chores.
As I got ready for church I thought about all the Sunday mornings that I have had this same routine and God has blessed me through the years with such good health that I have not missed many church services.
I guess this melancholy mood goes along with the fact that I know there is going to be an announcement at church that will begin the search for our new pastor after 25 years of knowing exactly what to expect when I got there and the thoughts of how that is going to change in the near future.
Hopefully this is one of the last sweater Sundays we have and spring is right around the corner !!

I so enjoy visiting with my church family before the service starts each Sunday.
After church #1 son had to make a run to Lake Lure to help carry in a lift chair that some of the family gave d-in-love's dad then he came to lunch. D-in-love and the kids and Aa's family all came right after church and we had smoked ham,green beans, tater tots, corn, sweet potato casserole, 7-layer salad and biscuits for lunch, yum it was all good !!
After lunch the kids all got in some swing time.  Even g-daughter got her first time in the swing and loved it .

Big brother showed off his "leaping" skills !!!!

After everyone left hubbie watched a race and dozed inside and I had a hot cup of green tea and relaxed with the dogs to watch the sun go down on another wonderfully blessed day.
On days like this it is hard to imagine folks who don't see a loving creator. As the evening shadows get longer and darkness comes later with each passing day the wonders of creation become more plainly displayed for our viewing pleasure.
God Bless and Good Night.

What a wonderful, blessed day you had. God is good. I pray that your church can find a pastor as wonderful as the one who is leaving. As we get older change becomes harder for us to deal with.
