Places We Have Called Home In 2020

Home Is Where We Park It:  Texas 281 RV Park, Bulverde, Texas

July 26, 2021

Temperature 93 Degrees

So We Waited, and Waited For What Never Came

Sunday Worship At Our Home Church in Colts Neck

They said it was going to get bad.  Real bad. Lots of rain and wind.  Thunderstorms as well.  So we waited, and waited, and waited some more.  Not a drop.  Not even a breeze.  Forget the thunder and lightening.  They definitely blew the forecast this time.  I was wanting at least one good heavy rain to wash the dirt and dust off of Elvira.  Ah well, when I get to the Escapees Park I’ll give the girl a good detailing.

Today being Sunday we began our morning with worship at our home church in Colts Neck, New Jersey.

Pastor Scott began the service with our call to worship.

Our first song has always been a favorite of mine.

And he walks with me, and he talks with me, And he tells me I am his own

Continuing in the series that he started in September, Pastor Scott’s message this morning was centered around how the resurrection impacted the disciples then, and how it continues to impact and empower our lives today.

This, truly, is a summary of his message.  As I’ve always said I never know what life is going to throw at me as I round the next corner on the road of life, but I do know with certainty that the God of my faith will be there to see me through.  Bottom line, life is definitely worth living to the fullest because Christ lives in me.

Pastor Scott then interviewed several members of the question and asked each of them What does the resurrection mean to you?  Each in turn gave their testimony of faith.

Our special music today was a special handbell arrangement of Crown Him With Many Crowns.

Our closing song.  We’re now ready to move into a new week with a true sense of excitement and hope.

Later in the day via Zoom we were able to participate in the ordination to ministry of Susan Mulholland, a really dear friend of mine.  She is my age, however, several years ago she felt God calling her into fulltime ministry so back to seminary she went.  She and her husband Mark have been friends of ours for a number of years.  Their support and encouragement and selfless love saw Barbara and myself through some rough times in the past.

That was our day on The Road of Retirement.  We waited in vain for the storm that never came.  We went to church – twice mine you.  We played a marathon round of Mexican Train.  Yes, we watched some more Cedar Cove.  It was another great day all the way around.

Thanks for stopping by today.  We always appreciate your company and your comments.  Stay safe, wash your hands and wear your mask.  Till tomorrow.

These are the voyages of  Elvira and her 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 never been before.

See you on down the road!
