Sunday    
Breakfast after a good night sleep Oatmeal ,Orange Juice coffee or hot chocolate Eggs, bacon, toast and jelly
 
We decided to use the bulletin that Pastor Ray had printed for today. We followed the songs and scripture our church members would be using today in Erie.
But the sermon was not the same because we had "no idea" what he had planned to preach about. The music was right with our retreat theme of  Spiritual Gifts.
Melissa read scripture Daisy read the scriptures The elements were blessed
Mary  performed Communion for us Lunchtime Chicken pot pie and biscuits, Cole slaw and chocolate cupcake
After we finished eating, we said good bye to Melissa and Ana and Daisy. Mary and Kathy and I left for Erie.
