worship and work

one of our favorite spring sights - and it is in our own yard!

We visited the neatest little church yesterday. Since our core group meets on Sunday afternoons, we are encouraged to visit other churches until our plant is launched in September (Have you looked at our website yet? Pat spent hours and hours and hours editing the text. He did a super job!)

This little church that we visited is just 4 minutes from our house. How did we not find this before? It was wonderful - great message - great music. And we were made to feel so welcome; by the time we left three different people had given me their phone number. And they know we are part of another church plant! This is how the church should work!

The joy from yesterday's meeting spills over into today. The sun is bright, the temperatures warm - 61 degrees before the sun came up and projected to reach the lower 80's. The wind is stiff and will be bringing in some severe storms later today.

But I thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the back porch reading in Hebrews this morning. Birds are singing, wind whistling and the tulips and the hyacinths pictured above are swaying in breeze.

We are hosting an open house for our church here on Saturday, so spring cleaning begins today. Windows will shine, cobwebs will be banished and clutter will vanish.

The windows are open and I'm ready to work!

Oh, the flowers! So beautiful to look at as we are in another snow storm......but before this current storm, I saw my daffodils thinking about sticking their heads out of the ground...wisely they are sleeping for a little longer. I am in a new Bible study group at the local coffee shop on Monday nights....there are about 20 of us....loving our coffee and chocolate and fellowship. A good thing to do when there is no SUNSHINE.

That Bible study sounds wonderful, Linda. What are you studying?
