We left Sweeny, Texas Saturday morning at 8:00 AM. It started raining in Sweeny right after we left and rained there the whole day and Saturday night. It has pretty much rained in Sterlington since we arrived but we drove 8 hours, 420 miles, with NO rain at all. That was soooooo nice! It was a very good and refreshing change from the last several travel days.
Another good and refreshing change is the direction of diesel prices. They are not near as low as gasoline but I am very thankful to see the diesel price coming down. I paid $2.96 per gallon with my Flying J/Pilot discount on Saturday.
That is the cheapest I have paid since June 24, 2010 in Butte, Montana when I paid the same price.
154 gallons would have cost $620 just a few months ago. That is a huge change!
We started revival Sunday morning at Sterlington Holiness Tabernacle. We love being with Pastor Tracy Boyd, his family and his church. We had two great services yesterday and we are expecting five more great services this week.
Our last visit to Sterlington was for revival on the first Easter in their new church. It is an absolutely beautiful church. Now the Sunday school rooms are finished as well. We will try to get some more pictures before the week is out.
I have an update on my iPhone battery. If you remember I spent a morning at the mall getting a complimentary battery replacement on my 25 month old iPhone 5. I have good news. It is working fine. I took it off the charger yesterday morning about 7:00 AM and at 11:00 PM last night the battery was at 50%. That is absolutely amazing when compared to the last several months. I was putting it on the charger nearly every time I sat down. I am now free at last!
I hope you all had a great weekend. Thank you for stopping in and sitting a spell.
