Temperature 90 Degrees
Sunday Worship At Our Home Church in Colts Neck, New Jersey
Forms, Forms, and Even More Forms
What a beautiful day we awoke to. Clear blue skies, abundant sunshine and comfortable temperatures. A quick cup of coffee and a double chocolate muffin and we were ready for worship.
Scott began with the Call to Worship
Special music was provided by the Youth Choir.
Scott is continuing to focus on Pslam 23. Once again, he read a contemporary version of the Psalm, this time from the Good News Bible. We then sang a version of the Psalm. Finally, a member of the congregation read it again from the King James Version of the Bible.
Today he emphasized the role of the shepherd. He spoke of how the shepherd’s role is to guard and protect the sheep, to see that they are guided to abundant pastures, and to see that they are able to rest free from fear of predators.
He then spoke of Jesus as our shepherd. He went on to say that if we put our faith in Him he will guide and protect us, and enable us to know an inner peace that passes all understanding. He went on to say that the world hasn’t really changed, it is as frightening and demanding as ever; but, when our faith is in the right person, the person of Christ we can live with hope and certainty no matter what is going on around us.
A great message for the start of a new week.
What else have we been doing since Friday?
We/ve been filling out reams of forms. I dare say we/ve probably filled out enough to wall paper the whole of our new house. And just when you think you’ve filled out the last one, someone sends another one. Unbeliveable.
We spent Saturday furniture shopping. Here, there, and everywhere. First, on the internet then to the stores. We have, we believe, a good idea of what we want. We’ll make a final decision on our living and bedroom furniture the end of this week.
Finally, my favorite task.
We’ll leave here the last Sunday in March and make a brief trip to Fort Myers for some work on Elvira.
The we’ll move up the East Coast as far as Ives Run State Park in PA. Then it will be back down to Jacksonville. We’ll be there approximately three months while I undergo Proton treatment for my prostate cancer.
We’ll go home for a month (it sounds so weird saying that) and then we’ll be gone for the months of October and November. Finally, we’ll go back home for December for a brief period and then we’ll be off again.
Like I’ve been saying, we’re not about to sit around for very long. Three to four months at home will be more than enough time for us.
So, that is what we have been up to on The Road of Retirement. We’re taking it one day at a time getting done what we have to get done. Life is good and you’ll not find us complaining about a thing. Hope your life is the same.
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.
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!

Sounds like you have all your ducks in a row. Furniture shopping can be fun and setting up your home can be satisfying. Enjoy. When are you planning to be at Ives Run? We’d love to see you, if only for a quick lunch enroute. Have a great week.
We’ll be at Ives Run May 25 to June 7th. It would be great if we could get together for lunch. Have a great week.
We will be getting home from Georgia May 26 and leaving for the Delaware Shore on June 6. I know we have a commitment on May 29 plus I have 2 doctor appts while home. We’ll try.
Sounds like everything is falling in place – including travel plans. I look forward to reading about all your new adventures. Enjoy the new week!
