2020 February 02 Sunday in Liberty Hill, Texas

lthough I was still unable to get my mind to switch to sleep mode until midnight this morning, I still managed to achieve seven plus hours of sleep. I’d like to recover my old routine of sleep between ten and eleven and waking at five.

ow, they were very close with the predicted high for the day. They said 76° and the actual high was 77°. I check the prediction every morning and automatically add plus or minus five degrees.

e were on the road to church before the sun came over the tree tops. And then it was in my eyes part of the way there. That’s thanks to the twisted, hilly six mile road between home and Cross Tracks Church. I’m seldom thankful that it isn’t straight and flat, but this morning I could have had the sun in my eyes for the whole trip.

really like the information station just inside the main entrance. Plus there are people to greet you, give you a bulletin, and direct you to the sanctuary, classrooms, or nursery.

lus, it’s near the breakfast bar. We were a little early so it was not fully stocked yet. There will be breakfast burritos, sausage biscuits, sausage kolaches, sweet rolls, donuts, various fruits, orange drinks, soft drinks, coffee, tea, and bottled water. Yes, you may take them into the sanctuary.

astor John Saint’s sermon today was titled “Upside-Down Blessings“. It was based on the Beatitudes found in the gospel of Matthew.

fter church there was a presentation by the building committee on the plans going forward in our recovery from last spring’s fire that destroyed or offices and daycare.

hen that meeting was over, a few of us went to the Shlotzsky’s near the church. This made the third (and final) time I have been in one of their restaurants. Three strikes and they’re out. I’m sure that many people enjoy what they serve. I’m just not of them. If the sandwiches had half the bread and twice the meat, I might eat there, if every other place within an hours drive were closed. However, with a Subway only a few blocks away, nope not going back for a fourth disappointing meal.

here was a haze in the air this afternoon that became more apparent near sunset. I’m guessing that there must be some fire somewhere to or west. I haven’t heard anything on the news about a fire.


God bless and g’nite
