Last Sunday

We had the joy of spending the day with our friends who had come from New Hampshire. Since we had a conference scheduled Monday evening, which meant we weren’t heading home Sunday, we had a free day.

It was a restful time, full of encouragement and fellowship in the Lord. In the morning, we had a wonderful time of worship, with special music from the S. Family, a time of prayer, and Dad gave a wonderful message on Elijah. I am blessed beyond measure to have a dad whose passion is to share Jesus and live for Him.

Mrs. S. and Julia very tastefully arranged the meals, even in the tight quarters of a hotel room.

After lunch, the rain seemed to clear, so it was decided to go to the park for awhile. When we arrived, it began to rain, so we had to wait out the storm. The grass and playground were wet, but that really didn’t matter. Clothes wash. Children love playing at the park.

When we were done at the park, we went back to our friends’ hotel room. Dinner was barbecue plus other items such as chips, salad, and yes, even ice cream and cookies for dessert.

We then we went to God’s Word for our closure to the day. Family Bible time is one of our favorite times of the day, and when we have the treat of sharing it with another family, it makes it even more special.

We are grateful for the sacrifice our friends made to come to Pennsylvania. We were truly blessed!
