I had off from work today because it was Veterans' Day.

I come from a large military family who have fought in every war since the Revolutionary War in 1776.  I'm so proud of them.

Since I wasn't working I planned on having a brunch to end our Ladies' Bible Study for the season.  We do not have study over the winter but will start up again in March.  We met at 10 a.m. and stayed until noon.  There was so much food!  I brought eggs and scrambled them in the church kitchen.  I brought turkey sausage and low-sodium bacon which Carol so thoughtfully cooked for me.  Carol and Dottie brought juice.  Debbie brought bagels and cream cheese.  Gennie brought muffins.  Margie brought all kinds of fruit.  We had so much food we could not eat it all.

Here we are eating.  We invited the husbands too.  Only Margie's husband, Rick, showed up.  Joe was going to come, but got an upset stomach and didn't want to be around food.  I can't say that I blame him.  Pastor Justin showed up too so Rick wasn't the only guy there.

Our group has taken on Linda (from Linda's Life Journal) and her family as our prayer project.  We pray for them each week.  So she had her 2 1/2-year-old grandchildren (quads) make us bookmarkers.  All of us were thrilled.  We had Pastor Justin take a picture of us.

We had so much fun and I think this is going to turn into an annual thing.

Hope you had a good day too!

  1. I am so glad they liked them!!! Thank you again for every prayer said over the last few YEARS!!! Those prayers have made ALL the difference in the world!!! I am asking God to help me 'pray it forward' as y'all have done.....

  2. That is sweet Linda. We would love for you to pray if forward!

  3. Thank you,Linda for thinking of us. I LOVE my bookmark! Very thoughtful & I plan on using mine in my bible. The brunch was a LOT of fun. Discussions and ideas still flowed just like on 'study' days. I think we all appreciate sharing & getting perspective from our fellowship sisters. I thank the Lord for each of them.
    Have a sunny,joyful day!

  4. Kathy, I love Linda...she sent me a bookmark too. I am so happy your church group prays for them. They are a good loving family. Glad you ladies had a fun day together. It's wonderful to be with friends. xoxo, Susie
    p.s. Hope Joe is okay.
