that a long-time
Olivet person just told me,
"Rain before 7, clear by 11".
I had never heard that before.
And if I had, then when I awoke to thunderstorms at 5am on Pentecost Sunday, I wouldn't have thought we needed to cancel the picnic.
Well, you can see by the pictures that the old saying was right - and that I was of little faith. The weather was clear, sunny and gorgeous by the time we celebrated on Mary and Ray's lawn next to the church.
Earlier in the week, I ran into Mary (whose lawn we enjoyed) at the store and she told me that Olivet's picnic was listed in the county newspaper. That's great! I thought.. until I heard that it also included the location as being at her house. Fortunately, no one who arrived welcomed themselves to her refridgerator.
Bob's twin grandbabies were the youngest people present - and in the picture above, you see three generations! I think that in the photo below, Kelly may be taking scripture literally and is concerned about a tongue of fire that has appeared above Ron's head - and she is trying to extinguish it. I don't know. These photos are all by Dave Jones. Keep sending em!
