Kip and I were beginning to feel like heathens. It had been a while since we had been to church, so we looked forward to going with James and Janet to their church this morning.
It turned out to be a joyful service. I found myself feeling better and more inspired when I left then when I got there, which is always good.
The music was great, and the sermon was really thought provoking. In fact, I have been thinking about it all day.
The preacher talked about not being able to keep plants alive, which is something I can relate to. She said every day there would always be dead leaves on the floor that had to be scooped up and thrown away. In order to live, a leaf has to stay attached to the vine. In order to keep faith alive, you have to stay close to the one that gives it life.
When I thought about this, it made sense. In order to keep a dream, goal, love, or anything that’s important to me alive and growing, I have to stay close to whatever gives it life.
A friend recently told me about a book she read called, “Don’t give up your Daydream.” She referred to it several times in our conversations and it sounds like it has a theme similar to that of the sermon. Don’t neglect to nurture what you love.
The things I enjoy and feel most productive doing, I’ve only identified in the past few years.
You may not have wanted a sermon from me today, but you should know by now, good or bad, I always write my thoughts.
This whole day was better than great. We went out for breakfast after church and I gave everybody the day off from taking pictures of their food.
We went to an apple orchard where I bought fried apple pies, apple donuts, sweet potatoes and a delicious apple slush.
There’s James. I just stayed there until they were all done taking pictures…too hard to get up!
“Look James, there’s a witch!”
It was a gorgeous day. There was a maze for the kids to try and navigate in the cornfield to the right.
That there is some big cabbage
We had a blast with these two.
Next, we went to a street festival.
James caught me trying to take a picture of his food😜
This post sure went downhill fast!
Men are so competitive!! Laura Avant wants to know which one of these ladies is the witch.
