I have been biking past this old house on one of my favorites streets in Lodi. I noticed the dumpsters out from for many months now. It looked like a crack house, or a spook house. For awhile the door stood open to reveal the old-time wallpaper inside. Many times my curiously almost got the better of me and I wanted to sneak in when all the workers were gone. Good thing I didn’t (check out the website and you’ll see why)
Anyway, I told my folks about it and they said they knew the people who lived there years back. I can’t imagine what must have happened to let it get so bad. At least now the mystery is solved. I finally got close enough to see what was on the door.
Later we went for a short Kayak ride. The air quality was poor due to the smoke from all fires in the state. (It’s literally burning up). The forests and the people need to be managed better, but that’s another topic. It was one of the hottest days so far on record, so it wasn’t along ride, but it was nice to get out on the water. If I’d a had my trimmers, I could have brought some serious blackberries home.
I snapped a picture of one of my favorite boats on the river…….I just think it’s adorable. There is another one, Pete’s Bar and Grill that we like too. It was a peaceful day, just as a Saturday should be.
Later on, I took Mom and Dad some dinner so they wouldn’t have to shop in the heat and they could have some leftover for today.
Today we get to worship, everyday we get to worship. I was meditating on the fact that God has adopted us folks. Isn’t that an unbelievable thing? For those of us who have ever felt displaced by their earthly families, you can know that the God of the universe took desperate measures to make you part of His family. To have and to hold forever and ever.
I also contributed a little on a fellow bloggers website to help a little church in Texas. You can read about it here. It’s a drop in the bucket, but every drop counts as the people of Texas so keenly feel right now.
Hope you have a peaceful and blessed Labor Day all…….
