Written on February 6th, 4:36pm CST, Padre Island, TX

We’re here! This past weekend we ministered in three services, twice in the morning and once at night. Bonnie’s song touched so many and we are thankful for the Lord’s moving in each service.

On Tuesday we were invited for a meal to Reyes!

It was delicious seafood! If any of you all find your self in Laguna Heights and need a seafood fix, drop by
for a visit! : )

We parked in a parking lot adjacent to Wally World and on Monday night we saw some sparks. Wal-Mart went dark. That was an interesting bit of excitement for the evening. The camera had no battery left and by the time we changed them the sparking power lines had finished. I might have had something visual to post here otherwise.

Tuesday night we sang at Green Acres! [sings] Green Acres is the place to be, fine living is the life for me….etc., etc., etc! Ok. It wasn’t THE Green Acres. ; ) (For anyone who has no clue what Green Acres is it’s an old tv show.) We had our picture taken with Arnold.

The weather has been rain free but very windy. The ocean is brown looking because of all the rough current.

This is our second and final night on Padre Island. We left the island for Alamo this morning and didn’t return till evening. The wind has died down, which makes the weather positively gorgeous! We enjoyed 80 degree temperatures and sun all day.

Our concert in Alamo went very well. We were unsure how many would show up since this was kind of last minute. They ended up putting out more chairs to accommodate the overflow. It was a very encouraging concert for us, and, hopefully, them.

We started back home, but not until we tried out the neat 'waterless paddle boat'.

[sings] …. a bicycle built for two!

SILLYNESS ALERT: Proceed at your own risk. Some of the following photos contain certain amounts of silliness.

It started off innocently. It did. When Bonnie returned from the shower she found the bathroom full and did not replace the items in her bag to the bathroom. She left them outside, near the kitchen sink. Apparently someone leaned, or stepped on the bag and…..welll…..

Now, this could have ended right there and we could have cleaned up the mess the non-fun way. But that would have been too easy.

It was quite fun until I inhaled some. If you all are having second thoughts about our sanity I really don’t blame you.

We stopped off at the shell store on the way back home.

You should have seen the big one. :-P

Inside they had TONS of shells, t-shirts, one of a kind items, dust collectors, and HATS. :D

What IS that smell??? I was trying to look like a mean pirate. Heh. Somehow I don’t think I captured the look properly.

The beach was back to the normal blue color and the sun was setting when we got back.

Bonnie got some awesome pics the night before.

Well, I guess that’s all for now. More later. : )

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make you your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5-6 NIV
