Temperature 73 Degrees
Worship With Our Home Congregation, Colts Neck Reformed Church
We awoke to a beautiful but chilly day. The sky was a deep blue, the sun was shinning brightly but oh what a wind. A quick cup of coffee and a muffin and we were ready to start the day.
We began our Sunday as we usually try to do, with worship
at our home congregation.
Scott began the service with The Call to Worship
Our first song.
This morning Scott began a message series on Psalm 23
He began by reading the Psalm from the Jerusalem Bible
Next we sang a modern verison of Pslam 23.
Finally, a member of the congregation who is a modern day shepherd read Psalm 23 from the King James Version.
Today’s message focused on the first verse of the Psalm. Scott also referred to the above book, A Short Guide To A Happy Life. I recommend this book to one and all. It is just a few pages and can be read in thirty minutes. Yet, it has a powerful message, one which I will be focusing on in a future blog.
Service over we decided to get out and take a ride through the park.
Yup, she is back out again. All decked out in her summer attire.
Now, in contrast to our girl who is ready for summer, how about this. Nah, not here in the park but up in the frozen wilderness of Wellsboro, PA. My sister sent me this picture and said it is one of many ice sculptures created to honor Valentine’s Day that are around the town. Now, I’ve been on the hot seat a number of times but I can’t say I’ve ever had the pleasure of having my tush frozen to a bench.
Leaving the park we
were off to do some grocery shopping.
we stopped at Sammie’s for hot dogs and ice cream. This is a well known location in the area that locals flock to.
We found a table outside and we each had a foot long hot dog and then finished our lunch off
with some of the best ice cream we have tasted in a long, long time.
That was our day on The Road of Retirement. It was an easy day with nothing that had to be done. The best part of the day, we were together, side by side, making the most of yet another beautiful day that God had given us. What more could one ask for.
