I am still on a cloud after the amazing day yesterday. My spirit was so stirred I could barely fall asleep last night...but I was so physically exhausted that my mind finally surrendered. This weekend was just awesome...that is the only word I can find to describe it.
We had a basketball game we cheered for that went into overtime and my neighbor through up a last ditch half court shot when down by 2 points and we won because she got credit for a 3point! The cheerleaders remembered their dance even though its been forever since our last game due to the snow. And then church...there is so much to say about church!!!
I was pleasantly surprised! The speakers were so funny...and so much like everybody else. I would call them normal...BUT...I'm reading "Everybody's Normal - Until You Get to Know Them" by John Ortberg and I have discovered that we are all actually WEIRD!!! Anyway, they had the same struggles and victories as the rest of us. For example, during lunch Cheryl and I compared "boy" stories...she has a "caleb" too! And she has also dished many spankings in the church bathroom in her day..lol. I hope everyone enjoyed the seminars. I can't wait to see the dvd's. I'll let you know when I hear they are available...maybe we can do a showing with snacks...haha
AND I have concluded that our choir is unbelievable...I mean just absolutely unbelievable. Me and the baby buggy kids jammed out in the corner (I hope we were not too much of a distraction!). Travis and I have determined that we are "barely Baptist". It so wonderful to be able to worship how we feel led without concern of judgment by others. And face it...that Amy can just flat sing! She is so blessed as is the rest of the choir. Our entire church is just so blessed with talent. Praise God for everything He equips us with. Without Him we would be nothing...maybe even lower than nothing. I hope we never forget that it is HIM and not us that make our church what it is today, tomorrow, and forever. To Him be the Glory!
I love and appreciate you ALL! Keep shining His light! Share your thoughts on the weekend events!
