November 18th, Sunday – Worship, A Wonderful Way to Start The Day; Adding Some Spice to the Blog; Gratitude for all Things

We’re more or less back to normal in terms of temperatures – 70’s during the day and 50’s at night.  Just the way I like it.  Looking for new places to winter next year I’m letting these kind of temp’s be my guide.  I’m definitely steering clear of any place that goes down to the 30’s on a regular basis at night. That to me is one of the nice things about having wheels under your home.  If you don’t like the weather you can move elsewhere.


Today being Sunday we started the day off in the best way I can think of and that is gathering in God’s house for worship.  We have been so very blessed this whole year from beginning to end.  And I can think of no better way to start the week then with praise and worship to the good Lord who has made and continues to make all things

possible.  Once again we had a great service with great music and a great message.  Pastor Ron asked each of us to think about this, Am I the type of person that others would be grateful to know and have in their lives?  Does give one pause to think about how we interact with those around us.

We came straight home after worship, not because we had anything pressing to do but simply because we had nowhere to go.  Besides which, football games would soon be

coming on TV.  I don’t know which games you might have watched but the only one  I believe that was worth a hoot was the Steelers and the Jaguars.  What a finish to that game.   A really great comeback by the Steelers.  

OK, Barbara said lately there has been no spice to the blog.  Nothing exciting added.  No zip.  In an effort to prove her wrong here you go, spices I am told that will help you live longer.  Now I have to idea what they are but at least tonight there is spice to the blog!

I have to agree we have sort of settled into a bit of a rut.  We’ll be correcting this shortly I hope.  We’re also sort of just sitting back and relaxing because we both realize that as of January we’re going back to work.  Ugh.  We’ll be work camping at Dade Battlefield which means for certain days of the week it will be up and out in a very unretired manner.  Earlier in the year it sounded like a really good idea.  After all it meant our time in Florida would be kind of like free.  Now, however, I don’t know!

That was the sum total of our day on The Road of Retirement.  Evening has come and it’s time for some Hallmark Movies and a game of Mexican Train.  Thanks for joining us once again.  We hope you too had a chance to give thanks for your blessings today.  Before I go a thought now for each of us to consider:

As always,  if you are coming to the end of your day with concerns and worries, let me suggest that you turn them over to God.  After all, He is going to be up all night so why not let him handle them for you.

Time now for our evening prayers and eventually some shut-eye.  Till tomorrow.

These are the voyages of  Graybeard and it’s occupants, four paws and two humans.  Our continuing mission: to explore as many new states as possible, to seek out new acquaintances and make new friends, to boldly go where we have not been before

See you on down the road

  1. Not every day is filled with spice and personally I’m glad of it. At our age I don’t know if we could handle it. 😁 What is important is that you and Barbara enjoy your day. Always enjoy hearing about your day.
