Sunday

A visiting preacher at church, a new dating couple, a friend/youth girl home from Hillcrest for a couple days. An invitation to lunch. Singing at the old people's home this afternoon. The possibilities are large but my strength is small. A day of rest this shall be.

For lunch I made a rice and chicken dish, cooked broccoli and cauliflower and served applesauce with it. Grandpas went to the elderly pastor's place for lunch with other elderly ones from church. They reported an enjoyable time.

Thomas and the three oldest boys went with others from church to sing for those at Hampshire Center this afternoon. They received a plaque from the residents, saying they were the preferred volunteer group of the year.



The boys brought their Byler cousins here this evening to record some singing for some of their other cousins. Especially for the little cousins- children's songs with motions.

This has been a cool, breezy day. Grandma Lapp called for help to cover her flowers. Can you believe they are calling for frost on May the 16th?! We set our potted plants indoors overnight but the rest is at the mercy of nature.

Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Exodus 20:8

And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath. Mark 2:27
