On Saturday, we went swimming at a new swimming hole, mainly b/c our normal swimming hole is quite the drive and there was a threat of rain/thunderstorms. We had hoped that by going to one a tad closer, it may afford us a little more swimming time. As it turned out, we had nothing to worry about and spent all day swimming. It did rain a couple of times, but no thunder was heard or lightening seen. We did get a few giggles out of the people that raced out of the water, soaking wet, to hide under the picnic pavilion or their cars. Seriously people? Were you afraid to get wet? LOL
On Sunday we had another great sermon on Christian Traditions.
We read Exodus 20:8-11
Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
Six days shalt thou labour, and do all they work:
But the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:
For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.
and Mark 2:23-27.
And it came to pass, that he went through the corn fields on the sabbath day; and his disciples began, as they went, to pluck the ears of corn.
And the Pharisees said unto him, Behold, why do they on the sabbath day that which is not lawful?
And he said unto them: Have ye never read what David did, when he had need, and was ahungred, he, and they that were with him?
How he went into the house of God in the days of Abiather the high priest, and did eat the showbread, which was not lawful to eat but for the priests, and gave also to them which were with him?
And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man made for the sabbath.
And just a few of my notes, which may not make any sense, LOL:
Sabbath is Saturday.
Lord's day is Sunday.
Letter of the Law or Spirit of the Law.
1. Refocus your faith.
2. Replenish your spirit.
3. Refresh your mind.
4. Recoup your body.
5. Regroup your family.
Sunday after Church, we headed south for the Cabbage Patch Nursery:
|Here's a teaser pic, but you'll have to wait for the detailed (well, as detailed|
as I can get) post later on in the week. :-D
So not quite as action packed as last weekend but still just as memorable and enjoyable. :-)
(Just a quick note pertaining to the title of this "series", after consulting with my graphic designer (aka Mom), we've come to the conclusion that making a catchy graphic with the words "Weekend Recap" just can't be done. SO, a new name, along with a graphic is in the works. Not that anyone cares, just thought I'd mention it. :-D )
