Sunday Mind Dump - March 18, 2012 (Monday Edition)

Solid day.

There was a good atmosphere in service.  Everyone seemed to be in high spirits.

The feeling was evident before and after the service too.  I really enjoy seeing people visit with one another in the atrium before service, and then hanging around so long with each other after service.

The offertory was a home run.

The message was insightful and seemed to connect with a lot of people.  The title was:  The Duty of Children in the Family. 

I also met four first-time guests.  Always enjoy that.

We need to do something about getting the speaker monitors off the floor in the front of the stage.  It’s too crowded down there, especially for the ushers who come forward.  What’s needed is a little platform that would fit over the stairs to mount them on.

Easter is just around the corner.  It’s our highest attended day of the year.  Plan to arrive early for a good seat.

I’m loving this weather.

After church yesterday Renae and I put the boat in and spent the day on the water.  The water conditions were good and the weather was perfect – mild temps and lots of sunshine.  Had a good time.  Got home late, just after dark.

I really enjoy being on the water.

I took a few pictures with my old camera, but I’m having difficulty getting my computer to open them up. 

Having May weather in March is kind of freaky.  The weather people are saying the water temperature in the Guild of Mexico is already higher than normal, which could lead to a very active hurricane season this year.

This week I will finish planting my garden and then will get a fence up to keep the deer out.  A couple of hunters in our church have offered to help me with the deer problem.  :-)  Next I have to get water to the location which means I have to run about 400 ft of PVC pipe to the back of my property.  This project is a lot of work but I’m enjoying it.

One of my Jack Russell’s goes to the vet this week to get “fixed.”

Next Sunday afternoon we are offering Seminar 201 – Essentials for Spiritual Growth.  Forty-two people have signed up.  If you are interested in joining us, there’s still room.  The seminar will last about 2 ½ hours, and we’ll have dinner together.  Aside from the class itself, the food and the fellowship would be worth showing up for.  It’s going to be a lot of fun.  Hope you join us.
