Sunday Worship At Our Home Church In New Jersey
Never thought We’d Be There Again
Gooooooooooooooooood Morning World! I don’t care what anyone says it is a great time to be alive. I have a few possibilities yet confronting and confusing me that will if I dwell on them get me down. But I’m trying to change my way of thinking and rather than dwelling on them I’m instead counting my blessings. And oh do I have so many to count. Life is good.
We began our Sunday morning by joining in worship with others at our home church in Colts Neck, New Jersey.
Pastor Debbie delivered our Call to Worship
Our first song.
A member of our congregation lit the first candle in the Advent Wreath.
We did likewise with our own Advent Wreath.
Special music was provided by one of our bell choirs.
Pastor Scott delivered the morning message. His message was related to the first Advent candle, which is the Candle of Hope.
He spoke of the Israelites in exile and how they exhorted one another to lift up their eyes to the God of their faith. As they did so they received from Him the Hope they needed to get through the tough times. He then spoke of how we who are in a certain sense in exile need to do the same. We need to stop looking at what is immediately around us and turn our eyes upward to the God of our faith. We need to receive from Him the Hope that He offers. A Hope that will sustain us and see us through.
Our closing song. Worship was at an end.
After worship we went. . . .
somewhere I thought we would never have to visit again.
Who is that masked woman folding laundry? Why, it is Ms Barbara!
Unfortunately, ever since we had a mix up on the right fabric softener to use the machine in our rig has been leaking. Of course it is stuffed in a small cubby hole with no access to it unless it is pulled out. As of now I’m trying to find someone who can help me pull it out so I can take a look at it. Unfortunately, I don’t know how long it is going to take me to get some help.
So that is where we are at on The Road of Retirement. Worship was uplifting. Our laundry is done. Football Sunday was mostly disappointing. OK, the day is done and night is now upon us. Time to get ready to get some shut eye. Thank you Lord for this day you gave me and all its blessings but I’ll now turn it back over to You.
Thanks again for stopping by today We always appreciate your company, and your comments and suggestions. Keep safe, keep healthy, live to the fullest the days that God gives you.
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!
