Why, yes, yes, I was at The Gaithers concert this past Saturday evening! My daughter’s small group, my daughter, and me gathered together taking up 20 seats to enjoy this spectacular night. It was an honor to be included. This group was my mom’s favorite gospel group. I remember her sitting in her recliner and watching them on television the year she came to live with us. Three of my favorite songs were written by Bill and Gloria: Jesus, Jesus, Jesus; Something Beautiful, and Because He Lives. The old standards live in my heart. We laughed, cried a little, shouted, and sang…and we got lost in the parking lot and couldn’t find our SUV! Once we thought we spotted it, only to suddenly have the vehicle lights come on, revealing someone inside. Wrong vehicle! So much laughter. Of course, we finally found it, but it’s a memory we will remember always associated with this fun night.
Other than that, it was a fairly quiet and normal week for me. I did get my hair cut, took a short trip with a friend, and managed to color a couple of pictures and work on the puzzle. Since this week is going to be super hot, I will be spending most of my days in the A/C. Need to make a few more cards this week. Oh, and daughter told me about a puzzle game which I bought. I like to use my brain while I’m spending time with a game on the computer. My winter months look as if they will be full of activities I enjoy.
I finished my buddy color picture of the month this past week, but can’t show it for a couple of weeks yet. I also finished two other pictures. One I did with the Pitt Pastel pencils and the other with markers. The first picture is in my Fairies coloring book by Ruth Sanderson finished with the pastels. The second is in my Love 4 Flowers color by number book by Prachi Dewan Sachdeva.
The month is quickly drawing to an end and cooler weather will be upon us soon here in Ohio. The pine trees are sporting a healthy array of pine cones, and some of the leaves are turning yellow on my elderberry bush. It won’t be long before the pond becomes visible between the trees as the leaves begin to turn colors and fall. I’m grateful for the mornings I have been able to spend on my porch and anticipate more as the weather begins to cool.
I’m lifting my cup of tea to wish you all a wonderful week. May your hearts be filled with joy, your lips lift often in smiles, and your prayers be heartfelt. Until next week…
