Remember when I just told you I wasn't Gumby and I like structure? Yeah, that was just in my last post. Well, God knows how to tweak me and our big sightseeing plans for Friday went right out the window when the rains came.
We had been watching the forecast all week and knew there was a possibility of rain for Friday, but it was supposed to be a slight chance. Right. The rains came in hard so being the wise folks that we are, we decided a day of sightseeing at the beach would need to be postponed. :)
Friday became a lazy, stay-in-the-recliner-in-your-jammies day. We did rouse ourselves enough to go out to dinner with Andy & Alicia, Forrest & Gail, Cole, and Richard. We went Bailey's, a local restaurant in Chipley, the next town over. Randy & I got grilled shrimp. It was okay; I've had better. And we probably won't go back. But, the company was fabulous! We laughed hard, shared stories, and just enjoyed being together away from the park.
We woke to the sun shining beautifully. Such a great way to start the day. Randy had to work this morning, his last Saturday morning as he begins his Monday through Friday schedule next week.
I attended a Women's Ministry event at church. It was great! The team who organized the event did a fabulous job. We began the morning with a light breakfast of muffins, pastries, fruit, coffee and juice. It was presented in a lovely way with flowers on the tables and bright pastel tablecloths. We participated in large groups and three breakout sessions. The subject was Priscilla Shirer's “Seed” project. The objective was to give us a way to study Scripture so that we didn't need a book or a teacher leading us – we could absorb the truths in God's Word for ourselves. Mrs. Shirer is Tony Evans' daughter and obviously inherited her dad’s gift for sharing God’s Word. She is a very compelling speaker. She and her husband founded Going Beyond ministries. The breakout sessions began with a short video of Mrs. Shirer explaining the purpose of that session. I left with a deeper understanding of how to make God's Word come alive for me as well as getting better acquainted with some of the women in the church.
This afternoon was another lazy time. Just enjoying having the windows wide open and my husband by my side. :)
Tomorrow morning we'll go to church and then in the afternoon I'll go back for choir rehearsal. As I shared in the last post, we are getting serious about the Easter program – gotta get that music memorized!
Hope you all are having a great weekend! Until the next time . . .
