Getting ready to leave the CSRA

So just what exactly is the CSRA, you ask? I’ve learned a lot about the local designation for different areas of the country we’ve visited. We were in The Wiregrass when we were in Bonifay, Florida. We were in The Lower Tier when we were south of Binghamton, NY. So right now we are in The CSRA – which stands for Central Savannah River Area – and our time here is drawing to a close. But first – the weekend past.

Augusta –We left early on Saturday and were on the Riverwalk by 9AM. It was a beautiful day – bright and sunny, with endless blue skies. We enjoyed a leisurely stroll on the river’s edge, a walk into town, a visit to the Augusta Museum of History, lunch at the White Elephant Café, a tour of the Ezekiel Harris House (2nd oldest house in Augusta), a stop at a local fabric store (sorry, but that HAD to happen!), and finally a visit to The Boyhood Home of Woodrow Wilson. All interesting. All good. I’m glad we were able to get “into town” and see the sights. We did not make it any of the 12 non-member golf courses, but I understand they are all beautiful! Here are some shots of the day –

And some flowers in the Wilson Garden (probably not original to the garden 🙂 )

And there are some other shots here if you’d like to see more.

Mother’s day was quiet – but I had sweet conversations with all of my beautiful children, so it was a good day. Gary pampered me with a nice lunch, and we had a DQ for dinner. Works for me!

Finishing up the project –
Betty and I continue to sort and pack Bibles. The thought of these Bibles getting into the hands of people around the globe who otherwise would never have the opportunity to own one, was very heartening. The guys have been all over the warehouse – repairing floors, painting what needed to be painted, moving shelving – whatever. It’s been a good project – good people and good times. But tomorrow after work we head out to some new adventures. First to Chattanooga where we’ll be connecting with dear friends, Jeff & Esther Talley. They are “in country” (they are missionaries in Slovakia) until Friday and we are delighted to be able to exchange hugs. From there we head to Nashville where we’ll be visiting some Sower friends. And then Monday we head into a campground for a little R&R! So we have a busy weekend ahead, which should be full of hugs and laughter and good friends. But right now – it’s time to put away the breakables and latch down all movable parts!

Here’s a memory collage of our times here – I know it’s kind of small, but I hope you can get a feel for how very blessed we feel to be part of this ministry.
