Worship At Our Home Church

A Beautiful Day For A Picnic

What a difference a day makes.  Yesterday was dank and gloomy.  It was cool, overcast and it rained off and on throughout the day.  But, today when we awoke the sun was shinning and the sky was a beautiful deep blue.  What a perfect day.

We began our day with worship at our home church in Colts Neck, NJ.

There was special music proveded by one of the Bell Choirs.

Scott continued his message series on Psalm 23.

We celebrated The Scrament of the Lord’s Supper.

The Benediction and the service was over.

So what to do with the rest of an absolutely gorgeous day?  Ms Barbara had a marvelous idea, how about a picnic!  Absolutely smashing.  Off we went to pick up a couple of sandwiches and then we headed to a place we knew real well. . .

This is a historical state park that is only minutes from our home.  Two years ago we spent four months here working as park volunteers.

Our first stop was at one of the picnic pavilions for lunch.

Then we went for a walk around the park.

Sadly, this beautiful gazebo is still closed due to

a huge crack that runs through it from top to bottom on one side.  Two years ago it was hoped that the state would provide funds to repair it but alas that never came to be.

Then I spotted this and I said to Ms Barbara Hey, here is the answer to ever going grocery shopping again!  Needless to day she did not share my enthusiasm.

That was our day on The Road of Retirement.  It was just such a wonderful day.  We both needed a day to just get out and get away.  And doing it together made it even more special.  Thank you Lord for this day and the beauty of the world You created.

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.

  2. What an amazing oak tree! Nothing better than a walk around the park! And that looks to be a wonderful park. Maybe funds will be available in the future to repair that charming gazebo. Now, regarding your plan to address grocery shopping, sorry, I am with Miss Barbara on this one. 🙂 Enjoy your week!
