We had the reception — and everything went well. What a lovely crowd, and what an encouragement it was to see so many of you. My Xanga friends don’t want to hear this, but I forgot my camera. I’ve been trying to think ever since I got home if there was anyone taking pictures tonight — and if they were, I didn’t see them!!! I think this night got done with no pictures. What a shame!!! Friend Karen and her daughter Abi did such a splendid job of decorating.
I promise you that I am more tired tonight than I have been in a very long time. The storm going through must have caused all the bones I’ve got to ache wherever and whenever they move. I kid you not!!! Tonight I am quite the example of inertia: Bodies in motion tend to stay in motion. Bodies at rest tend to stay at rest. As long as I kept moving, I could move. But I sat down for 20 minutes in my chair after we got home, and me thought I’d never get up again. But listen, Friends. I still believe that Sunday is a day of rest. That is only an hour away. Friend Kathy is going to teach my Sunday School class. There are leftovers from the reception for lunch tomorrow — Guess who is gonna’ slide through the day with as little effort as possible.
And just a reminder to all of you: Gather with God’s people at His House for worship. We let so many little things keep us away, and we need the fellowship of believers.
