Broken Slash Pine Limb
The wind really took it’s liberties with our place last night. The rain was great, but the accompanying storm was something else! It was quite a light show and it appears that there were microbursts along with it. The storm caused the lights to flicker a few times, the dogs were cowering (bless their hearts), and we lost TV picture off and on. But even with the storms there are Heavenly blessings. The usually scary dirt road has been keeping packed down so that riding hasn’t been difficult. Because of the storms the temperatures overall have been pleasant, for July in Southeast Georgia, that is. 🙂 If all our Summers were like this it wouldn’t be so gosh awful. Thank you LORD for your blessings!
First Baptist Church, Blackshear
Our Church has been adding on. Way in the back, see the structure there? That will be our new Youth Activities Center. But it will also be used for our FAITH Riders meetings and other activities centered around the Church or in any way to serve the community. I’m so blessed to be around all these wonderful folks that are teaching me to love others more than myself. It’s one of Christ’s most important teachings: love others, live at peace with your neighbors. Sure makes my life a lot better too.
Been visiting the Mother-In-Law at the Home as much as physically possible. Steve had noticed that she had suddenly been acting sad. I think he may have figured out why. Her vision has become noticeably hazy. She says that everything appears dark. She had had lens replacement surgery for cataracts awhile back but had not had the follow-up visit, for whatever reason. We’re thinking that maybe she has that PCO (Posterior capsule opacification occurs because lens epithelial cells remaining after cataract surgery have grown on the capsule). I had that growth on the capsule after my lens surgery and got it lasered off. Steve didn’t need to. Not everyone has this problem after surgery. So, tomorrow he takes Mom to our local eye specialist to see what’s going on. I pray that is the situation and they can help her. It must be awful to lose one’s sight.
Amen to that, huh?! He knows all our problems because He has already been to this day and He cares. Well, that’s about it around here. Nothing exciting. I pray that all is well in everyone else’s part of the world.
Yesterday, we enjoyed a pleasant day at a dear friend’s house not too far distant. They have a lot of acreage with gorgeous mature trees and had cleared a well thought out pathway about 1000 feet from their home through the woods for a concrete picnic table. After the fabulous repast of homemade Baked Beans, 7 Layer Salad, Fried Chicken and cookies, we spent some time strolling around their yard. Then it was off to the Home 20 to nap the extended bellies away. (Hey, napping can be an exercise … right?!) All-in-all it was a wonderful day full of Christian friendship and eats par excellence. I couldn’t help feeling how blessed we are!
I hope y’all enjoyed the slideshow. Thanks for stopping by.
