More Celebrating

We actually woke up to some fine temps this morning - 55 degrees at 6:15!! Now THAT's what I'm talkin' about! We did have a downpour of rain for about an hour or so, but then the sun came out and it was beautiful.

It was funny 'cause while it was raining, it got to be about time for me to get ready for church. And I was feeling like I could rationalize staying home - it was raining; we had gone to a praise & worship concert last and didn't that count? But, then the sun came out brilliantly and it was as if God said to me, "I know what you were thinking!! No excuses, Terry!" :)

So, we got out the door and went to church. As usual when I've vacillated about going, God spoke to me through the message that was given. Isn't He just amazing? And, why am I always surprised by that?

This afternoon we went out for an early dinner (yes, AGAIN!) to celebrate Ron & Ruth's 45th wedding anniversary. Seventeen of us gathered at California Dreamin' to share in their celebration. Once again, the food was good and the company even better. It is wonderful to have friends to share these special times with.

Looking forward to our meal - Ron & Ruth are at the far end of the table

I got a couple of pictures from Larry & Cindy of our outing last night. So, here they are.

At DeSoto's, a great seafood restaurant

Don't we have a great life? Until the next time . . .
