This morning was very cloudy and by church at 10:30 it was raining. It has rained the rest of the day. Part of the afternoon it rained so hard we had to turn the surround sound up louder than usual to watch our movies. Love to sleep to the rain on the roof but it was a little noisy while watching movies.
We went to Crystal River UMC contemporary service today. Several of the team members commented that it was a little funny when we looked up on stage and the contemporary band members were all about our age. However, the music was quite good. The entire service was good. The pastor was not here today because of a death in his family but the retired pastor who filled in brought us a good message on Elijah. The church is in the mist of a series “The Elijah Chronicles.” Today’s text was I Kings 18:42-44, with the message titled “What Makes A Prayer.” Per scripture, Elijah was a person just like us, who earnestly prayed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective. Glad we could be a part of the service. After worship some of us went to Denny’s for brunch. Another good time and another good meal. This afternoon was quiet and since we don’t have much of a satellite signal we watched recorded movies. It was a good time of rest although sad too, since we always talked to Mama Ruby on Sunday afternoons.
Tomorrow we will start our work week. Since we missed the first week of the project we really don’t know much about what everybody has been doing or what we will be doing tomorrow. We know some have been working on a home that was damaged by the hurricane, some installing some laminate flooring and some removing a wall. We will see what our assignment is in the morning. “Semper Gumby”, always flexible. Hope you have a great week!
