01.31.17 Baptist Men’s Day, flowers, hot dogs and Celebrate Love!!

233122-goodbye-januaryTuesday, January 31, 2017 – Wow, end of the first month of the year 2017.  And 17 full years since we crossed the 2000 mark.  As I get older time goes by way too fast.

I mostly resist the temptation to share every Sunday’s Worship Service with ya’ll, but this week I just have to!

This Sunday was Baptist Men’s Day at Trinity!  An annual event where the men are the whole choir, a couple of men give their testimony and men read the scriptures.  This year we had the addition of Caroline playing the piano, Sean reading scripture with his dad Philip and Lilly singing with her granddaddy Teddy! Our church has a long music history and it is always makes me smile when I see the next generations showing the same gift from God.

Our wonderful interim pastor Bro. Bob Adams and his always wonderful wife Janice were back with us this Sunday.  Bro. Bob has been very ill for the last month but was looking peachy perfect today!

Obviously, every Sunday is not like this but we always Worship the Lord with song and are blessed with a meaningful sermon.  If you don’t have a home church, I invite you to come worship with us at Trinity Baptist Church, 42062 Pumpkin Center Church, Hammond, LA.  We don’t bite and mostly we behave!  We love each other but mostly we love Christ who died on the cross to save us from our sins.  Come learn about this Jesus who puts smiles on our faces and in our hearts.  Who makes us able to get up and face this world every single day.  We’d love to have you join us! Here’s a link to the church’s webpage to learn more about us.  http://trinitybaptistla.com

The flower bulbs we planted last year are starting to sprout up and bloom.  Even the azaleas are starting to bloom early with the unseasonably warm weather we’ve had this January.

Does anyone have any idea why the hot dog bun manufacturers and the hot dog manufacturers do not get together and give us equal numbers of each.  This week’s purchase of 7 hots dogs didn’t match up with the 8 hot dog buns.  Crazy right?  One little old hot dog bun not needed and not used.  Our fish like the extra bread at least!20170126_171647

oak-alleyI think that’s it for now.  My daughter in law Misty, granddaughters Kallie and Misty are planning a day trip to nearby Oak Alley Plantation in Vacharie, Louisiana on the Mississippi River this Saturday.  We’re also going to be having a nice southern lunch there so I’ll be sure to share that adventure with you all!

Ya’ll come back now, ya’ hear!
