The negative part of holidays far from home is that I miss listening to the wisdom that emerges from the lectern Sunday mornings. This past Sunday featured the reflections of Eldon Godfrey. He and Carlie Jean are members of ACTS Monday Night Book Study and their input is so welcomed. 

Meanwhile, today is an extra busy day despite it being holiday time. Two of our sailing guests, who arrived Friday night, along with our grandson, Nic, will be returning to Calgary. Fortunately we have our boat near the airport at Sea-Tac. Our daughter, Rebekka, and son-in-law, Marc-André, along with grandsons, Oskar, Felix and Hugo, will be joining us later today. It is a very hot day along the coast so I'm appreciating the air conditioning at Starbucks for my webpage update.

Dave and I will be home for service on the 25th. See you soon.

As I look out the window of the Des Moines Yacht Club meeting room, I see a huge container ship coming my way. Our sailboat, Good Idea, is at dock and earlier this morning, I watched two porpoises frolicking in the nearby waters. Yes, Summer time with light glistening off the calm waters of the South Puget Sound is a beautiful sight to behold. 

I touched base with Rev. Peggy this morning to get my copy of her reflection (to post on the Sermons page) and thought of all the amazing people who were part of the congregation at St. David's Sunday morning as well as those who are enjoying their summer in the variety of ways that summer offers. The CACG- Seniors' Corner group and June Marten are inviting folks to two Wednesday events that are upcoming. Check the Adult Spiritual Development page - upper left corner for further details. 

We are in week three of our sailing holiday and have a whole new set of stories to tell. It is true that spontaneous combustion really can happen!!!
