"The Land of Milk and Honey"
Our church, Canaan Baptist, is hosting the annual meeting this weekend for our division of the North American Baptist Conference. Canaan is a small country church near Crawford, Texas that was started by German settlers on October 25, 1891. My great-great-grandfather Engelbrecht was one of founding fathers.
Today, we had a ladies' luncheon in the fellowship hall and decorated with the "Milk and Honey" theme. We used lots of yellow sunflowers and bees, and decorated with milk cans and bottles. A tasty salad and fruit plate was served followed by a delicious apple cobbler and ice cream. Yum!You can visit our church's website at http://www.canaan-baptist.com/.
On the way home this afternoon, I passed this pretty field of REAL sunflowers. The foreground of Indian Blankets and Horsemint added some more colors.
