A Special Day!

After only having one and a half (1 1/2) hours sleep Saturday night, I was up for the day early, Sunday morning.

I realize God woke me up.  He put it on my heart a need to make an adjustment to my manuscript.  No matter how hard I tried to relax and return to sleep, it just didn't happen.  Eventually, I just got up in obedience and did what I knew I needed to do!

On my way to church, I stopped at the cemetary for a few moments.  I knew it wasn't possible for me to go after worship service, for reasons you'll read about shortly.

Being the first (1st) Sunday of the month, meant it was Communion Sunday!  As you know, I enjoy taking communion and on this day, I gratefully participated.

Afterwards, everyone made their way upstairs to our gymnasium, where we celebrated the recent marriage of our pastor. 

The happy couple greeted everyone who was not participating in actually cooking the BBQ food provided for us.  We saw a video display of pics from their wedding that took place in part of Ontario where our pastor's bride was from.

After celebrating, I stopped at my younger daughter's for a few minutes.  I congratulated a couple of my grandsons on their getting good marks and passing into the next grade!

Eventually, I arrived home.  Wanting to be wearing something more comfortable and more appropriate for a BBQ party on our deck, I quickly changed my clothing.

This event has become an annual one, here in my building.  It gives everyone a chance to get together and have some fun.

I participated in some of the events taking place, but the only game I won a prize at, was the darts/balloon game.  This didn't really surprise me, for last year I had the same result!

Last year, we were given a chance to sing karaoke.  When I sang last year, I didn't use music, for I didn't need it; I just sang.  Many people told me later that they enjoyed my music, so at least I have the consolation of knowing that it wasn't a case that we didn't have the opportunity to sing this year, due to my singing, last year!

This year, no one had the opportunity to sing.  This was rather disappointing to me, for I had hoped to do so, once again.

Instead, we had a musician entertain us.  The music was mainly country and western.  Some people did some line dancing, although I wasn't one of them.

All in all, it was a busy, but great day!  And, a much better than expected ending to a rather stressful weekend.

Until next time...
