The music, the word - everything was awesome.
Pastor Jan preached on Nehemiah.
Then we had a remembrance to 911.
The worship team played this song:
If You say go, we will go
If You say wait, we will wait
If You say step out on the water
And they say it can't be done
We'll fix our eyes on You and we will come
Your ways are higher than our ways
And the plans that You have laid
Are good and true
If You call us to the fire
You will not withdraw Your hand
We'll gaze into the flames and look for You
I cried like a baby. I still remember
smelling the smoke all the way to my house.
So many lost, such brave men and women.
We also had "graduation" at church.
This is the Sunday that the children
move up to their new classes.
My hubby is losing 3 children but
gaining 3 new ones.
After church we headed to the
Red Bank Street Fair.
We live in Red Bank it is a great
We are located on the Navesink River.
Ice boating in the winter.
The famous Count Basie Theater
This is a new restaurant that Jon Bon Jovi owns.
It is to raise money for the hungry.
JBJ Soul Kitchen is a community restaurant with no prices on the menu; customers donate to pay for their meal. If you are unable to donate you may do volunteer work in exchange for your family’s meal.
My hubby and I haven't eaten there yet but from
I really want to give it a try - such a good cause.
Red Bank has a ton of antique stores.
This one is huge. My grandmother and I went
through this once it was so HOT inside hah
I always loved the hobby shop with the painting.
The old train station still in operation.
Many folks commute to NYC to work from
Red Bank. Sadly after 911 you could drive by
and see the "cars" of those lost just sitting
abandoned in the parking lot.
It was horrible.
My hubby is in the green ball cap!
They had a ton of tables, food, crafts, business.
I was just thrilled to see the Gideons handing out bibles!
Jack's music shoppe has been in business since I was
in high school. Every one who was "Cool" bought
there records at Jacks. hah
And for those who have no idea what a record is?
This is the coolest thing. She makes jewelry out of
recycled guitar strings. I am going to buy something.
She also sells on Esty.
High Strung Guitar String Jewelry
Jenny Woods artist
handcrafted using retired and recycled guitar
strings played and donated by local Jersey Shore musicians.
Guitar strings--as well as those made for many other instruments--are layered with several types of metal wrapped in a specific way to enhance sound and vibration. Strings made up of multiple metals cannot be recycled. Each time a musician changes their strings (and for some that can be quite often), that metal usually ends up in the garbage. However, when a musician thoughtfully saves and donates their strings to be recycled into beautiful guitar string jewelry, those strings are saved from ending up in a landfill--recycling at its finest!
After the fair we went to our local diner for dinner.
On the way home we always pass this house.
They have a ton of deer eating under their tree.
I'm pretty sure they feed them.
Most of the times I never have my camera or when
I do they are not there.
Well tonight I struck gold ! hah
As the deer pants for the water brooks, So my soul pants
for You, O God. Psalm 42:1
