Picnic Day in the park

This is the day the Lord hath made . . . and what a wonderful day it was!
The Spiritual and Emotional Subcommittee of the Long Term Recovery has had this day in the works for weeks now. They planned it perfectly and it was awesome.
There were games for the kids (and adults), free food, games, a free family photo for each family present, community service tables and more --- all free! We had families from all over the city, from all different flood areas and none were focusing all of their attention on the flood -- they were reconnecting with neighbors and having some real fun!
You can see from the photos -- me with the executive director, Doug --- who I will really miss!!! to one of the case managers covered with free stuffed animals for his 2 children to tables full of fun of all kinds --- even the TN team came, volunteered wherever needed and had a blast!
It was a great day and we are so thrilled that the sun was shining and the temps were near record high for the end of October here in southern Indiana.
This morning was our last Sunday service at Columbus First Assembly -- tough to say goodbye! Pastor and the prayer team had a powerful prayer for us and we were blessed with some heartfelt cards and well wishes. What they don't realize is that we will take a part of each one of them with us when we go. Our family has grown and we will remember them, their love and their smiles forever!
Until next time . . . Susan and Monty
