Over the Weekend

Over the weekend, Martha Lynn and I traveled far, far away from our Winona home. Really, not so much! Sunday morning, we worshipped with the Old Union Church of Christ in Carroll County, Mississippi—a little less than 25 miles from the driveway, tucked in the woods and accessible by a series of brown, gravel roads. For the Bible class time, I made a PowerPoint presentation about Martha and my recent foray into Guyana, South America over six weeks. It took three hours to assemble the PowerPoint slides, replete with pictures; I finished the construction process about midnight. For worship, I preached about the conviction of Jesus Christ that led him to depart from heaven and come to earth to effect human redemption. Afterward, the congregation and we enjoyed a fellowship meal.

Our evening appointment was less than 20 miles away in Grenada County, Mississippi at the Elliott Church of Christ. Whereas for the morning trip we went mostly west, in the late afternoon, we traveled primarily north. (Since we were close to our residence for the day, I was able to do the unthinkable with our schedule—take a Sunday nap between service times at the respective churches.) Sunday night, I presented an overview of our stateside and overseas endeavors for our Lord Jesus Christ.

Recently, Martha and I had supper at a 50’s diner, after which traveling to nearby Grenada Lake. It was nearly sunset when we took some pictures with our digital phones! A few days prior to that, I attempted—unsuccessfully—to train my rabbit-bush yard ornament to work the riding lawnmower. Martha got a photo of my best efforts to no avail.

Good news today, our vision has remained the same, and we do not need any adjustment to our prescriptions for eyeglasses. We keep on, and with each other, it is a much better journey with less sorrowful moments than otherwise was occurring separately and alone.
