What a lovely Sunday it has been. This morning began slowly and quietly with another cup of coffee on the Larsen's beautiful front porch. buzzing with hummingbirds busily replenishing their energy supplies. Getting ready for church as everyone else slept was, for once, not a stressful event, since we didn't need to leave until 10:15. Nice.
Worshipping together with my friend Mary and our kids was a blessing. Sitting elbow to elbow with someone who I am only beginning to know, but already love, and singing songs of worship to our Lord, was truly special. Being a different sort of church from my own, I nevertheless did not come to "evaluate" the service at all. I will now say though that I was rather bothered by a renegade apostrophe on one of the overheads- in the Sermon title no less! Nuff' said.
Instead of the hustle and bustle of cooking a huge gourmet meal, we left it to Alex to make his famous taco dip and later he'll make an artichoke and spinach dip for munching. We had some spectacular cheeses and crackers, guacamole, chips, salsa and dip for a lazy Sunday lunch on the porch as we listened to the cicadas sing and enjoyed one another's company.
It's now naptime and I believe the hammock out under the trees is free. Signing off now!
