Worship At Colts Neck Reformed Church

Different Things


It was a rather different day today.  We had storms off and on throughout the day.  The winds were blowing 20 mph plus.  The weather report for the next several days is for more of the same.  Thankfully, it is rain and not snow!  We can handle that.


Our Sunday morning began as usual with online worship  at our home church.


Pastor Scott opened the service with the Call to Worship


There was special music provided by two members of the congregation.


Pastor Scott’s message was from I Corinthians 13 and the message centered on Love.  He began by stating that today  when we talk about success we usually tend to equate it with possessions.  In so many words, we tend to believe that the one with the most toys wins.  But he stressed that what really matters most in life is love.  He went on to say that love is about giving, giving of one’s self to others and it should be up front and visible in our lives.  He went on to emphasize that we need to love others even as God in Christ loved and gave himeself for us.  He concluded by reminding us that contrary to popular opinion true success is really found in loving others.



Our concluding song.

But before the service ended, in honor of Valentine’s Day a virtual montage of various memebers of the congregation on their wedding day was displayed.  Here are a few:



Service over we were ready for the rest of the day.

I spent most of the afternoon finishing a new book I had begun several days ago.  This author is new to me but I really like his work.  I’ll be looking for more books by him in the future.


I was able to take a brief bike ride despite the menacing weather.


Though I didn’t find Ms Naughty I did find a flock of flamingos.  I finally got the skinny on this flock.  Once they are put on your site, if you want them removed you need to make a donation to The Paradise Cares Fund.  This is a fund that supports local charities in the Bushnell area.  Moreover, whatever is put into it the owners of the park match dollar for dollar.  In addition to the flamingos all other fundrasers in the park work the same way.  I give this a big thumbs up.


Ms Barbara was busy today in the kitchen putting together a one dish casserole for our afternoon meal.  Let’s see it had corn, chicken, onions, and baccon bits   Another delicious creation of which I enjoyed every bite.  I’m glad we have some leftovers because I’m looking forward to eating more of it.


And what would a day be like if we didn’t play some Mexican Train.

That was our day on The Road of Retirement.  Due to the rain the majority of the day we spent inside.  Quite truthfully, I’m beginning to go stir crazy.  The not knowing when treatment will begin is driving me up a wall.  But of course before that can be decided I have two more tests, one this week and a scond next week that I need to get through.  Then there is the consultation with the doctors.  OK, I know take a deep breath.  But that doesn’t work all the time.  Not with me.

Thanks for taking the time to read our blog.  We always appreciate your company, your comments, and your suggestions. Keep safe, keep healthy, live to the fullest the days that God gives you.
