A day in my life - October!

It's October!  Here's how I started the month.

 It's Sunday morning and I'm not working!  Our daughter Heather and her husband Andrew were in St Louis while he attended a seminar for work.  Their cat Oliver stayed with us.  Here he is greeting me in the morning.



Our church has been meeting in a school.  Last year we built this; office's and classrooms.  Bob and I were here shortly before 9 for Sunday School.



 One of the guys from our church drove this cool old truck to Sunday school.  Isn't it a beauty?




One of the women at our church painted this pretty welcome sign for us.





Sunday School was done shortly after 10, and we drove a few minutes to go to the school auditorium where we are meeting for worship.


We had a great church service, and took part in world wide communion day.  Our service finished around noon and we went home and had lunch, then had a relaxing afternoon.


One thing I did was to work on the bible study I am currently doing with our Tuesday night group at church.  Numbers isn't thought of as a very interesting book, but we are really enjoying this study!


We ended the day by having our small group from church at our house.  We had supper together and then enjoyed some great discussion and lots of laughs!
It was a good start to the month.

That is a nice truck for a Sunday drive to church. How nice for your friends to visit with you. This is such a wonderful time of year to be out and about. I always love to see Oliver!

Your small group looks like a happy bunch Mari!! I think our church is leaning toward starting small groups in the future. It is a good way for people to become more like family.

I love the fact that the lady in blue is thinking, "forget the photo I'm hungry I want to eat this delicious plate of food!" Ha.

Love the truck btw.
