Today's ride was not so long. It seems that I spent much of the day cleaning the house and hanging laundry on the line. It was a beautiful day for it. Multiple loads dried in the wind and sun.
It was a day to reclaim the house from dust, piles of laundry and stuff from vacation two weeks ago!
Not to mention a scrumptious brunch of homemade whole wheat blueberry pancakes with locally made male syrup! Super yum! I did not have any champagne in the house, so I had a mockmosa (ginger ale & oj) still just as fun in a fancy wine glass.
Finally by 4pm I realized I should get out of the house. It was a shorter ride just out of town and back so I could get home in time and cleaned up and make it to 5:30 worship.
I'm glad I opted for the shorter ride, because I needed to sing, pray and share bread & wine. This past week I have been surrounded by God through family and friends. It was wonderful to hear the gospel proclaimed by a dear friend and colleague. It is truly a blessing to be surrounded by sisters and brothers in Christ and to hear that community in Christ strengthens us and supports us in our life and faith journey.
With the sermon done for tomorrow...I'm planning on a ride before church.
In other news, my fortune from dinner told me to be spontaneous, so my fingernails now match my 'beautiful berry' toenails.
