The Lord Is In The Midst

for the last two weeks the christians from the welland gospel hall have been having special gospel meetings.
they are very important meetings where the two visiting preachers have been preaching their hearts out about the good news of the forgiveness of god to lost sinners who are walking the broad way, they are using the "two roads and two destinies chart" as their guide.
this is one of the many, many inivitations given to the community.

the two preachers made a surprise visit to see bernie and me and we so enjoyed having them.
in fact a few days later bernie and these two went to have a coffee at tim hortens' and left ME behind..ha! bernie is not used to going out with the boys!
anyways when they popped in that first day, they had to pay the price..they had to let me take a picture of them before bernie and i would let them out of the door!

they also paid dad golden a few visits and i really think that dad golden appreciated it..he has been coming home earlier and doesn't seem to want to avoid them.

here is the chairs arranged for the gospel meetings.
for this week it is bernie's and my turn to clean the hall and so we make sure that everything is clean and tidy for the evening meeting. i am very bad at arranging chairs, and just do not have the even eye for it but nobody seems to be complaining!

we took advantage of this week and decided to do the spring cleaning of the hall. bernie is cleaning the ceiling lights, dusting out any bugs that have made their home there with the dust!

from the ceiling to the floor.
now bernie is doing some vacuuming

as for me, i have the easy "sitting down" job of washing the little sunday school chairs.this particular class are the three and four year old children who are in aunt janice's class.

one last window to clean and now bernie is going to do his last job.

and that is the task if arranging the chairs in a circle for the lord's day morning breaking of the bread meeting of the christians where the lord is surely in the midst!

we have his word for it!

have a blessed lord's terry

A Medium Black Car On A Ruby Tuesday Day

the little red car was not expecting company this week, but company she got, in the shape of a medium sized black vehicle, carrying two nieces.

that monster of a car parked right behind her, hiding much of her shiny red coat.

there was rachel's little sister, amy with the tiniest light red streak on her bright green shirt.

and in the trunk, already was a pile of red junk on its way to goodwill[ sure doesn't look like junk to me!]

"rachel" said uncle bernie, "i want to see what your trunk looks like," and soooo....

into the trunk that girl hopped!

"now what does the inside look like"?

hmmm....some nice stereo set with amy's music on...lively notes that silences the twittering of the singing birds.

here is rachel looking at the ruby coloured GMC decal, and her own reflection gazes back at uncle bernie..that guy wants to investigate the engine!

and here it is!
nice and simple!

well here is a group picture of the big blue sunday school van, the little red car[who's nose is all out of joint AGAIN!] and the medium black car, the newest member of the family.

well queen rachel and the princess bid their farewells as they pull out of the driveway.

"and it is none too soon", grumbles the little red car!

happy ruby tuesday everyone, even you little red car!
god terry
