Sunday in Orange Grove

Park Church service is at 8:40 on Sunday morning, and while this is a bit early for our taste, we both managed to be there in plenty of time with happy smiles on our faces!

The choir was in fine voice, the minister gave us an uplifting message from Paul's first letter to the Thessalonians, chapter five. Our friend Arnie played a medley of great songs on the concertina, including Amazing Grace and How Great Thou Art. It was a service worth getting up for.

On the way out of the hall, we were stopped by friend Linda who wanted to take our picture. Later in the day, she stopped by to deliver a copy of it to us. I decided it would make a great profile picture, especially since the previous one was now three months old; we have aged since then!
Thanks, Linda.

Arnie and Arlene asked us to go with them to Denny's for a slam, or whatever happened to be our brunch choice. This was a great thing on several levels, the first being that we had the pleasure of visiting with these friends for a nice long time. The second notable item was the food itself, for it was abundant, tasty, and served just right. The coffee was good, too. And finally, the restaurant gave a fifty percent discount to residents of Orange Grove and the two of us ate for under ten dollars. Hallelujah!

The afternoon was spent reading and dozing. Ah, Sundays!

Then there is ice cream at the activities center in a few minutes, and BBBH has baked a beautiful cake which is just asking for a good slicing.

Y'all look that good that early in the morning? Kudos to you! (And your beautiful better half - definitely is! That's not to say you aren't cute as a bunny...)

Vee said...

Sounds like a great Sunday!

J. looks gorgeous as usual. The jury is still out on the new mustashe you are sporting. (I'm sure that only a sister would say something like this.)

Pearl said...

Sounds like a relaxing and entirely agreeable day.

Shelly, a great and restful day. We are blessed.

Lin, it was a nice day indeed.

Grace, she's definitely easy on the eyes.

Vee, thanks; and siblings get to do that, don't they?

Pearl, whether we deserved it or not, we surely enjoyed it!
