Today after what seems like endless packing ready for the big move we had a rest.
Our plan this morning was to visit our local parish Church for their morning 11am service. We drove the short way over to the Church however the gates were locked closed and the man waiting outside said that he was supposed to be doing something within the Church however he was still waiting. So we decided to drive to another Church the time now just before 11am, when we sat down in the second Church the pastor said the service had finished! Then we headed back to our parish Church, still closed. Thinking we would return home un-churched my husband suggested another Church however as we drove down the road and about the turn left I asked him to go right and head towards a Church my husband had once spoken at by chance on a snow day we arrived with only one space for us in the carpark, the service began at 11am and it was 11:20am we went inside and the bible reading which was read and the message from the pastor shared perfectly fitting for my situation.
It was amazing how the parish Church being closed, the second Church’s service already being finished rather early at 11am the parish Church still closed on our return drive was part of Gods plan.
This evening we went out to one of my favourite places Frankie and Benny’s. We had to wait a while for a table however it was worth the wait. My husband said that the music and company in that order was what had made the meal.
What I like most about Frankie and Benny’s is the decor and music it always reminds me of an Italian café we would regularly visit beginning when I was a little girl the place would be filled with smoke near the back of the café and we would sit near the window. I would order a vimto ice cream drink amazing. This particularly café which is still open is decorated in a similar manner however I would imagine their décor is very genuine and not staged.
We most definitely had a peaceful Sunday, just the way Sundays should be.
Happy Sunday Friends!
