Sunday - The Lord’s Day

As I arrived in Harlingen that first night on my right I had passed a church called Faith Assembly of God. During the week I called to check the times of services. I slept a little later this morning since the service I chose to attend was at 10:30 a.m. The church is located at 22510 E. Expressway 77, phone number 956-425-4040. Typical for me I arrived about five minutes to the start of the service. I was greeted at both sets of doors. Shortly after I was seated the Pastor started the service. I felt welcome at once. The Pastor made me feel comfortable with his words. The sound of the music was at a good level. There was comfortable seating and temperature in the room was great.

Righteousness and Looking for a church?

The Pastor spoke on the meaning of righteousness based on Romans 14:14-18. After his sermon I could feel a new quiz coming on “Confirmation of Righteousness.” We sang the same songs that I sing in my home church. Even the one that I had carried in my heart all week. A Christian Church and Assemblies of God Church singing the same songs? God resides in both churches and denominations. My home church Pastor had spoken briefly on “if you are looking for a church what you should look for?” 1) The highest view of Jesus Christ, 2) Christ in righteousness (the light), and 3) Christ in love. I could easily choose Faith Assembly of God as a new church. I found the church had all three qualities.

Las Vegas Café - Harlingen, Texas

After church every good Christian heads to lunch. I thought I would try out Las Vegas Café at 1101 W. Harrison Avenue, 956-423-6749. This restaurant was recommended by a couple of of ladies from Iowa that were on the Downtown tour. I drove by the restaurant, the line was outside and around the building. I decided I wasn’t up for the wait, but the long line says something for the business.

Ramsey Nature Park (Harlingen Arroyo Colorado) Harlingen, Texas

The weather was threatening to rain, but it was not going to stop me. A change of clothes and I headed to Ramsey Nature Park (Harlingen Arroyo Colorado.) located at 1001 S. Loop 499, the office is open 8-5 M-F, and the park is open seven days a week sunrise to sunset. Just for the record it did NOT rain, it was overcast for a short time then cleared. I had a wonderful visit in the Park. This park promised birds and true to their promise there were birds. It was well prepared with feeders, blinds and flora in which the birds could feed. Harlingen has bird watching festivals and butterfly festivals throughout the year. I was able to see both butterflies and birds on my visit as well as a rabbit and a wild boar. I tried to get pictures of birds and butterflies, alas I do not have the right camera yet. I did get a load of wonderful pictures of the flora.

Tip of the day

Tip: When visiting a place like a park alone, it is good to put a credit/debit card in your sock. It is not really fun to carry around a purse or bag, but you must always take your camera. Keys go in the pocket, credit/debit card concealed on the body. If something goes wrong you have ID and money.

This Lord’s day was relaxing, refreshing and spend out of doors. This was my day four in Harlingen, Texas.
