Fall has come to Nebraska

10 Sep

Yesterday was the Omaha Bible Church annual church picnic. The picnic was held at Cooper farms which is fairly close to thebaptism at the OBC Fall picnic church building . The grounds at Cooper Farms are very nice and have beautiful hill like surroundings. I have pictures. The day was perfect, a little breezy temps in the 60’s with mostly sunshine throughout the day. In human terms, one of God’s perfect days. I arrived late for the event, got in line for food, and found out they had already run out of plates. This means that we had a great turn out for the picnic. Praise the Lord for that. Someone was going after more plates but I grabbed a piece of chicken breast and a napkin and headed for the tables. I have been trying to eat more healthy of late so the chicken breast was perfect and just enough to fill me up. I visited with several folks from church and fellow ministry servants. Pastor Pat spoke briefly and then we had a couple of people follow Christ in baptism. We use a hot tub sized portable pool to do baptisms in and it was used for these folks at the picnic as well. Check the pictures for that.

Today I got up this morning late to go to the gym and it was raining and cold. Temps were in the low 50’s and will probably get much higher than that all day. I worked out on one of the elliptical aerobic machines for 35 minutes, traveled 4 miles (without really going anywhere) and supposedly burned 450 calories. Woo Hoo!! It feels good. Nice fall weather, getting in shape and blogging at lunch time, it doesn’t get any better than that, right? Buzzzz! Wrong answer BarryDean. Being glorified and spending eternity with my faithful and loving Savior would be the best that it can be. So it could get way better. But maybe this side of heaven it is pretty good.

Lord willing I will be posting another music review Tuesday tomorrow so keep a reading eye out for that. I have also provided a link to my Flickr account for the OBC Fall Picnic pictures I took. Please check them out. Rock on!

    good to see your musings and your great afternoon. What a great time to gather together in the name of Christ to fellowship and see others identifying themselves with Jesus Christ.

    What a contrast with today being rainy and very cool 😦 I am having to cheer up my wife, who still isn’t used to the Nebraska weather.
    Good thing my joy isn’t in the weather, or else I would be moody.

    Very nice, I didn’t realize that Nebraska had so many trees. I guess that I tend to think flat and wheat so I guess that I will need to adjust my perception!

    Looks like someone was baptized during the picnic, am I right? Good to see people making public professions of faith like that!

    Looks like you had a great time Barry. I had a look through those photos – is there anyone in there from the blogosphere that I would know??

    Barry, I think you, Erik and Matt are the only OBC bloggers I know…

    So I’ll hold you to your promise of ‘next time’.
