Up into the 60’s for first time. Nice and sunny. Church was great, except my voice energy wasn’t the greatest. We did a great arrangement of “Break Down the Barriers” by Heather. The introit Heather picked was shades of Dave Rowe, “Come, Come Wherever You Are, …”, which several of us already knew by heart. Joy’s sermon hit the mark too — she discussed the tricky situation of how we can all get along with particular application to our own church community. But there weren’t too many in church. Probably the weather explains that in part.
Yesterday I walked without my snowshoes to my “Lookout Ledge” on the far side of the Fessenden Hills. First time this winter that has been possible. Of course it’s not winter any more; it’s Spring! And there’s a window of opportunity open now where one can walk in the woods without snowshoes, but in a couple weeks the same walk may pick up tics and feel the buzz of Black Flies. That’s when Spring in the woods gets hard, not to mention the chance of bumping into a disgruntled hungry bear looking for food after his or her long winter’s nap.
