  • Last week while on my stay-at-home vacation, I went fishing.

    However, for me going fishing was a big fat very big deal because it was my first time ever.
    At 56, I had never fished before, and for months now I have been wanting to, almost to the point of it being an obsession. I don’t know why I’ve been wanting to fish so badly, only that I have.

  • This has been a great week, weather-wise. We had a fine day for golf Wednesday. It would have been good weather to mow, but with the prediction of no rain for at least eight days, I decided to hold off on the mowing. I only did the yard around the old house and that looked like a hay field when I got done.

  • We finally got some measurable rain this week. It’s been clouding up and thundering and lightning, but nothing would happen. On Friday night, it went through the same routine but the sky opened up and it rained for about 40 minutes. There was almost an inch of rain in the gauge Saturday morning. I had mowed Thursday morning in bits and pieces because there were so many brown spots under the trees. Saturday morning, everything was green again.

    Bro. Bill’s message Sunday morning was from Philippines 2:1-4 on “Why I Love the Church.” Through the church, Jesus provides hope, faith, purpose, and love to us. Hope is found in understanding what Christ has done for us (Romans 5:3-4). Hope in Jesus rises above our daily situations.
    Sunday evening’s message was from Colossians 3:17 on whatever we do, we do for the Lord. We are to let our light shine for him. We were blessed to have Ashley Smith share her gift of music and her testimony with us.
