Sabbath Afternoon Thoughts

Afternoon Thoughts

I am not so sure about the snow we are expecting tomorrow. We are supposedly going to be dumped on. Winter has indeed begun early and it is expected to get even colder by the end of this coming week starting tomorrow. What great joy! Are we going to have a white Christmas this year? I hope so! I am still not sure about the snow, though. I want to be go out and make snow angels, throw snowballs, and enjoy the winter stuff but now that I am older and using a walker getting up and off the ground or floor is hard to do by myself. Some days I wish I was young again without the health issues but I know that will not happen except through memories that will last a lifetime no matter if I remember or not. Let the snow come. It’s Wisconsin!

Today was a very good day for church. Yep, I went to church this morning to Sabbath School, Pastor Van did the sermon this weekend, and then we had potluck, and prayer session time. We had some visitors this morning. That was super! Members of the church, including myself, met a member’s fiancée and his parents this morning. The couple is waiting for her family to arrive from Jamaica and have the wedding on the 18th at our Beloit church. Yep, this next weekend! I am so excited for the couple! Members of Beloit have been invited and I will be going.

After prayer meeting was over and everyone who stayed for prayer meeting left, Pastor Van, CV, and I went to see Grandma Van at the Beloit nursing home where she resides. She was napping/sleeping but she woke up long enough to visit for a little while before we left her to go back to her nap. Although Grandma Van has Alzheimer’s disease she is still aware of people coming to visit even though she does not know her visitors are any longer. She did babble a bit incoherently but she did make some sense with some words. She is a wonderful woman from the stories I have been told by her kids I am now friends with and have been sharing Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays with for the past 6 years now. After seeing Grandma Van, a joy I like doing with the Van’s, Pastor Van and CV brought me home for the rest of the afternoon and weekend.

When MP came I did not want to take a shower. I was going to when I got home but changed my mind by the time she got here. I did not like the idea of getting in and out of my warm blanket and have Bing off my lap. That is how comfortable I was as well as toasty warm and ready for the upcoming snowfall we are expecting tomorrow through to Monday sometime. I have become a chicken getting into the shower on cold days lately, LOL… Oh well. It’s what I want to do today. I may not get a shower tomorrow because of the weather but that is okay. I do not expect MP or anyone to be out in the yucky weather anyway!
