7:30 AM (Central time): Not long after our return from Costa Rica, our friend Roberta posted pictures from the trip on Facebook.com. We had to register on the site to see them, and we've both become obsessed with it! What fun! We've both reconnected with old friends and had a lot of fun setting up our profiles. If any of our readers would like to see the pictures we have posted there, let us know and we'll invite you to join.
Meanwhile, a friend of mine from work asked me how my weekend was, and I nearly wrote a novel, so I thought I would share it with you all as well! Our weekend was really great! Friday we picked up the girls from camp and did some shopping, which was fun. We slept in on Saturday (always good!), and in the afternoon I went to the closing ceremony of a Walk to Emmaus. It was the first one since my walk, and our group was responsible for setting up the potluck meal that closes out the weekend. That was nice.
Then I drove as quickly as possible from Amherst to Clovis (about an hour) to meet Randall and the girls and some friends of ours at the big Baptist church on the east side of Clovis. We had decided that we would all go to the Saturday night contemporary service together. Partly so I can better learn how to lead contemporary worship songs, but also so we can worship together as a family. It was nice to spend time together and get to know our new friends a little better. Sunday worship at our own church was really good. Randall's doing a five week series on "natural evangelism" called "Outflow"--lots of images of water, and we have a fountain in the sanctuary. After lunch and a much-needed nap, we all met back at church for dinner (potluck) and a movie (The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe). All in all, a very satisfying weekend!
We're all doing very well, and the summer is just flying by! We hope you are doing well too.
