The Statue of Liberty and the Cross

Today at Church Chip sang this song as the special and thought I'd share the words with you.  

In New York Harbor stands a lady,
With a torch raised to the sky;
And all who see her know she stands for
Liberty for you and me.

I'm so proud to be called an American,
To be named with the brave and the free;
I will honor our flag and our trust in God,
And the Statue of Liberty.

On lonely Golgotha stood a cross,
With my Lord raised to the sky;
And all who kneel there live forever
As all the saved can testify.

I'm so glad to be called a Christian,
To be named with the ransomed and whole;
As the statue liberates the citizen,
So the cross liberates the soul.

Oh the cross is my Statue of Liberty,
It was there that my soul was set free;
Unashamed I'll proclaim that a rugged cross
Is my Statue of Liberty!
~ Neil Enloe
A Blessed Sunday to you.
Jesus Loves You.

More rain today

πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ     πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ
Had the exact same weather for walking as yesterday.
52 degrees and rain was supposed to be coming later in the morning
and once again I didn't make it home before the rain.
3 miles into walking a light drizzle started and by mile 4 it
was raining and I got soaked just like yesterday.

Walked first to the library and dropped a book down the slot. 
Flower pot at the library
Then up and town all the streets in town, both cemeteries and the ball park loop. 
Saw all the usual bunnies and this one didn't run off and let me get
pretty close to take the pictures.

 Lisa was out running again and was just as wet as I was.

Don't really mind the rain, but it would be nice to walk in the sun
again one day.
Walked 6 miles
πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ     πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ
It's been raining on and off all day.
We went out to do a few errands in McHenry.
Lots of people around for the three day weekend and the official start
of the tourist season.

Between rain Ken went out and did some work rerouting the rain water.
It now comes off the roof and goes into our water feature.

The asparagus from my garden have been popping with new shoots daily.
I got these out of the garden today.
I can't believe how fast it grows.

My day was sunny and bright even though it rained all day.
Hope yours was too.
happyone : )

Birthday lunch for Bettye

🌾     🌾
Some low hanging clouds around this morning when I set out walking.
It was 52 degrees and wasn't supposed to rain until later in the morning
so figured I had plenty of time to get a dry walk in.
But that was not to be.  After about 3 miles or so a light drizzle started
and after another mile it just rained and I got soaking wet.

Walked behind my house, through town, up Barn Sale, around the one cemetery,
and the ball park loop.  A quick loop around town and home.

The wild daisies are now blooming along the edges of the road.
 Workers were working on the old bakery and I stopped and asked
them what it was to be.
A Mennonite Bakery/Deli was the answer.

Lisa was out running getting soaking wet too.
Walked 6 miles

Today is my friend Bettye's birthday and a few of us ladies met for lunch
to celebrate.  We had a nice time and I am happy to have them as
my friends.  Didn't take pictures of any food but the server took
this picture of us.  Actually three of us asked her to take pictures
and she was kind enough to do it.
Starting on the right with the birthday day girl is
Bettye πŸŽ‚, Debbie, Heidi, Me, and Tricia.
I started reading the next book for my book club the Devil in the White City
and though I haven't gotten very far I already like it.

Ken has to go out in a little while and I plan to read more of it.

Hope your day was sunny and bright.
A happy day to you.

Friends are those rare people who ask how you are
and then wait for the answer.
