Worship in the Park
This morning Mary invited us to join her for worship at Robert and Adriene’s rig. We were reluctant to go in light of how many times in the past we have been burned going to such services. Mary, however, was persistent. How could we say no, so we went. This is Robert and Adriene.
They have a ministry called Altar to Altar. This ministry provides a Christian church experience for the mobile community. It is in essence a church without walls and pews, a ministry that shares the love of God through the Good News of His son Jesus Christ from coast to coast. We are definitely glad Mary kept at us because this was a beautiful worship experience. One of the best we have experienced in a long time. There were about 12 of us who gathered together. Adriene delivered the morning message on Developing a Friendship With God. It was a thoughtful message that definitely got the week off to a fantastic start.
Once worship was over it was time to go to Wally World for a few odds and ends that we needed. We had to pick up a few items from the grocery section, some ant traps, and a few more items for my reconstruction of the front TV access panel.
Once home I gave the front TV access panel the first coat of stain. I was planning on giving it a second coat tomorrow but I believe I will leave it as light as it is. Tomorrow I’l give it a coat of polyurethane and then the following day it will go back up. This time the right way.
Today I also got to clean and wax the shower. It’s been some time since I’ve done it and it was definitely long overdue. Mark another project completed.
Time now to get cleaned up since we were again going out with the group. It’s sort of funny when we first arrived here we thought there would be nothing do to. A few sightseeing trips, some books to read and that would be it. That is until we discovered that Mary was in charge of activities. We’ve been on the go ever since and just loving it.
Tonight we were going as a group to Adobe Deli. Sorry, not all the pictures turned out since I had to use my phone. Yes, I took my camera but forget to put a data card in it. Only me!
Gathering at the park. These are just three of the twelve cars that went.
I’m sure glad I decided to follow some one since I never would have found this place on my own. Again, never judge a book by it’s cover. This place was once a school, then a post office, then a deli, and now a restaurant.
Here we are heading toward the front door.
At the front door.
The main hall which used to be the gymnasium of the school.
A few pictures that sort of came out from this most unusual place. This is their coffee roaster. They grind and roast all of their own coffee.
This is one rather large wood burning stove.
The sign at the front door. One of them!
Unfortunately, none of the other pictures are worth sharing. Blurry, out of focus, etc., etc. Sorry. Take it from me, though, this is one neat place. For food. The funky atmosphere. And the history that is in every room, and nook and corner.
That was our day on The Road of Retirement. It started out great and also ended great. We’re busy now and loving it but in just two weeks once the convergence is over the park will be quiet again and like a ghost town. A week after that we should also be on the road again. For now, we’re having the time of our lives.
Thanks again for joining us today. We’re always glad to have you along and we look forward to your comments. Catch you tomorrow.
These are the voyages of Graybeard and it’s two intrepid travelers. 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!
