I did next to nothing yesterday and it was absolutely wonderful! We enjoyed a great breakfast of biscuits and gravy with a side of grits (yum, yum) then Darin went to play a round of golf at a local course while I stayed at the hotel, poolside, working on the Haggai Bible study lesson that's due in less than a month.
I managed to pick up a sunburn while rewriting and editing, so I'll be carrying my purse on my left shoulder, not my right, for the next few days. But the day was so enjoyable and relaxing, I don't mind the pain it brought with it. What's funny is that the pool wasn't even open for the season, yet. I lounged by a big hole in the ground! Every kid that walked by and saw me sitting there begged their parents to let them swim, until they saw the water-less pit. At that point, I got some pretty funny looks. But, when there's a beautiful breeze on a sunny, 72 degree day, I don't care how odd I look beside an arid pool.
I failed to share a picture of our entrance into North Carolina Friday morning. West Virginia's clouds had nothing on the fog that met us. We literally could not see the grass on either side of our road a couple of times. We actually were in the last few miles of Virginia when we took this pic, but North Carolina had its share of fog, too.As for today, Sunday, we visited a church called The Rock and had a great time of worship. I was impressed by the friendliness of the church; they even had greeters in the parking lot to direct us to visitor parking and welcome us to their fellowship. It's amazing how the "fellowship of believers" connects us no matter where we find ourselves. The Church, the bride of Christ, is still his whether here in North Carolina or in Timbuktu. Brothers and sisters all over the world united by One Faith, One Hope and One Baptism in One Savior. Amazing!
We're getting checked in at the Writer's Conference. We'll see how it goes!
