Today our church's congregation gathered at the pastor's farm for our May picnic fellowship supper. Pastor Adam set up a grill area, a tent to cover the serving tables, and some tables and chairs for everyone to relax and eat.
Although some folks are out of town traveling, we had a good turn-out and delicious food: hotdogs, ribs, baked beans, salads, baked and fried chicken, and cookies for dessert.
Quite a few guests took a little tour of the pasture, the garden, and the greenhouse, and a few ladies toured the pastor's home.
Around 3:00 the weather was sunny, very warm and still, and the flies were annoying.
By 5:00 the skies had darkened, the air was cooler, and a storm approached. By 6:00 we had all eaten, the wind was gusty, the large pecan trees were blowing, and drops began to fall.
And just like last year's picnic, in minutes everyone waved their good-byes, dashed to their cars, and headed home before the storm hit! Hopefully next year, we will find a rain-free day for our church picnic on the farm! Thanks to all who came; it was a delightful time.
