Yesterday we had some much needed rain. It was glorious. No, I did not go out and play in it...but I wanted to. I just figured I would not test the waters with my ankle by dancing in the rain. It started a slow misty rain early in the morning and throughout the day we had a couple of mega downpours. It was lovely. The temperature never got above 84 yesterday and it was great...muggy a bit between showers...but it was not in the 90's and muggy. We were supposed to work/attend an outdoor wedding last night. Deborah at Your Day was catering it and we work for her from time to time. We were not sure if I was going to be much help...but the kitchen was perfect and I did all the prep work sitting on a stool with my foot propped up. Frank was my legs. The kitchen was in the main house...the reception was in the Party Barn on the other side of the driveway. The wedding was held at The Reserve at Oak Bowery. If you ever want to have a true antibellum wedding...this is the place....it was beautiful. To find it, google Oak Bowery and I think it is the first site that pops up. Anyways, funny thing, we left at 3 p.m. heading to the site and it was pouring rain....so hard that you could hardly see.....when we got to the other side of LaFayette....the rain stopped....and it did not rain a drop during the wedding. Good thing....outdoor weddings and rain are not fun. The site of the wedding was beautiful. It was held in front of an old fireplace looking thing....all the trees had colored lights at their bases and then several of them had the white Christmas lights in them. I have to admit...it was magical. Kelli was a beautiful bride. Her mom and dad, Mike and Carol, were so proud....and they are such easy people to work for. They were so appreciative of everything you do. I like working those kinds of weddings. We got home about 10 last night and the carport was full of water....such a beautiful site. There is a 50% chance we will get more rain today...and if the sky is any indication....it is going to rain sometime today. I love it! I got up this morning, checked the sky, and started whistling "Singing in the Rain." What a glorious day. Ain't God Good? The Bible tells us in Acts 14:17 that, "Nevertheless he left not himself without witness, in that he did good, and gave us rain from heaven, and fruitful seasons, filling our hearts with food and gladness." Have a Blessed Day!
I am a woman who wears many hats and loves them all. I am a singer - I sing with the group Still Magnolias. I was part of the original First United Methodist Church Arbor Praise Team until we moved. After 24+ years of teaching English 11 and Spanish I - II at Benjamin Russell High School I decided to take a job closer to home. I now teach Spanish I & 2 at Randolph Co. High School and Wadley. I thought I was getting close to retirement and looking forward to it, but decided to move my cheese and try something different. I am a preacher's wife and a preacher myself. My husband Frank is the pastor at Rock Mills United Methodist Church and I am the pastor at Midway (Wedowee). It has made our conversations interesting, to say the least.
