It was such a perfect... Sunday

There was lots of sunshine, a great time of worship, great sermon, a bountiful feast that followed, beloved friends...and of even a pool to simmer down the theology talk. Or wait...I guess with these particular four guys it could really be any number of things. It could be the theology, law & politics, the stock market, Microsoft... but by the way they are strangely shifting around, I fear it is gymnastics, powerlifting.... or perhaps a combination of the two???


Yes, I have the uneasy feeling they are up to one of Dave's tricks...
Oh great. And my husband is the guinea pig???ONE... TWO...

THREE
FOUR....
FIVE HUNDRED POUNDS of FALLING MEN...

COMING TUMBLING (happily) DOWN!!!But the audience was really pleased.

I call this next segment...

Men of Christ Covenant get schooled by...

"The Grey Hair"
C'mon preacha...

(I love the little boys in the back ground, battling like the big boys in the foreground.)



Essie finally got her pool party and got the whole church to boot!





"It was hotter than snot." ~Lannie Brown :)




Somehow children just know...
"whether you EAT or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God." 1 Cor. 10:31



There were Lots of Children!


(who slept great that night!) Happy Menfolk


Lots of Lovely Ladyfolk







and brand new baby-folk!



















And even some time for a little Sabbath
REST



Praise God from whom all blessings flow!

Additionally, I love LOVE LOVE the way you tell you life stories... I feel like I've been a part of it, just seeing your pictures and reading it. Thanks for Sharing!

What a fantastic day. What a fantastic fellowship you have... blessed to be sure!

Wow, Liz!

Your church activities look very much like our sunday afternoons. They are such a perfect blessing. I love family integrated worship. I love the water fights and fun in the sun after the meeting and meal on Sundays. I'm so glad to see that you enjoy the same thing. These are wonderful pictures! LOVE them! It looks like a great time of fellowship and fun was had by all.

You commented on my blog a while back via message. I replied, but don't know if you ever got it! Thanks, for the comment though. It was great to hear from you.

I hope you can make it to the moms night out!!! I miss your face!!!

Blessings to you,

Jana

Oh, how fun! You're making this freezin' Alaskan jealous with all that splishin and splashin outside. Looks like a happy time- and thanks for sharing the smiles.

Should have known you are a fellow covenenter, too! :)

Off to water my garden (the only water in MY backyard... sniff, siff.)
