November 2-4

Homemade bread with homemade jam!

            2012 November 02 Friday   Today was a cooler day which made it a good day for baking.  I made a loaf of white bread and then made a dozen sticky cinnamon buns.  We received our absentee ballots today and got them filled out and then dropped off at the local Post Office.

            2012 November 03 Saturday   Sat around a did very little and then went for a drive and then came home and did very little.

            2012 November 04 Sunday We went to Highland Lakes United Methodist Church for Sunday school and church.  The Sunday school class had 29 people in it, including us.  We were welcomed like old friends that they hadn’t seen for a while.  It was very easy to feel at home there. 

 Then we went into the sanctuary and were surprised to find stuffed toys in the pews.  One of the ministries is the “Cuddling Zoo”.   The toys are to be held and blessed with a prayer and a smile and then will be given to someone.  It is very much like the “Prayer Shawl” ministry that our church in Des Moines has.

            We were invited to go to lunch and “The Cross” with them after church.  We rode with Gilbert and his wife to Mamacita’s Resturant in Kerrville.  After lunch we all went to “The Coming King Sculpture Prayer Garden” to see the Empty Cross. (pictures) We left home around 8 a.m. and returned home around 7 p.m. quite a long day.
