2020 January 05 Sunday in Liberty Hill, Texas


t church today we welcomed our pastor back. He had been on a forced “time out” following things that were said in his sermon on September 29. Which was the Sunday before we arrived in Texas, so we have no first hand knowledge if what was said. I only know that it upset a lot of people and a call was made to the bishop.

his Sunday was a very mild retelling of the visit of the magi. Watch It here.

fter worship and Sunday school, we went with some friends to Cherry Creek Catfish. Ella had found a coupon for a buy one get one free. I was in too much pain to enjoy my meal and brought most of it home. The pain in my back and abdomen is becoming much harder to deal with.

The following story is titled How to Name a Cat. I only give you a taste of it here. To read the full story go to htpp://TomAndEllaJournal.wordpress.com

e lived in a house too small . A house built for two, and we were more.

needed an office space that I didn’t have to rent. My publishing business could be run as easily from a home office as from the office space it currently occupied. All I needed was space for my equipment: computers, printers, copier,light table, files, and more files. But we lived in a house too small.

e found a house. A big house. An old house. A house with a basement room with an outside door. A office space where my sales staff could come and to without interrupting life in the home. We bought a house.

he house was Victorian architecture built with huge red, Colorado sandstone in 1890. Although It was now in Des Moines, at the time it was built newspaper stories about it wondered, “Why would anyone want to live so far outside the city?”

lthough it was no longer surrounded by field and forest, we soon discovered that there were wild creatures who wanted to share our home, mice. Continued at htpp://TomAndEllaJournal.wordpress.com

God bless and g’nite
