Day 265 - Wednesday, Sept 22

No picture today.
It seems like I am having one of these at least once a week...ugh!

It makes me laugh to watch these people. After so many seasons of Survivor, you KNOW they have watched the show....and yet they still get upset when somebody lies or has a double alliance. Really?

Day 245 - Thursday, Sept. 2

One of the leaders of MOPS at our church asked me a while back if I would host their leadership team for a working lunch and give a cooking demo/testimony.

Ya'll this was so much fun!!!


Everything is prepared and ready to demo!!
The hardest part was telling them my testimony while trying to cook. I used to be a better multi tasker!!!

I taught them a dish I learned in Italy,
Broccoli Pasta


My best compliment was 3 of them going back for thirds!!!

Day 244 - Wednesday, September 1


Tonight Steve and I kept the children of our Youth workers during the youth meeting. The parents take turns doing this. That is Steve climbing up the play ground chasing after the boys. This picture is small because I took it on my phone....oh well.

And he is doing great....loving college.
Made this mama's heart happy!

Day 243 - Tuesday, August 31

Tonight our evening and morning bible studies came together to celebrate and reflect on the end of our study of Revelation. We started out with a Wedding Feast pot luck dinner...awesome!


My friend, Becky, had set this up to represent John's vision in heaven. The baptismal represents the throne with 24 elders (the chairs) around it. You can see the 7 lamp stands. She thought of everything and it was so cool!


We then shared communion together.
It was a beautiful evening.

Day 242 - Monday, August 30


Worked a full day shift today (not usual for me) and then went straight to Jared's Meet-the-teachers Night. It was actually nice ......my husband and I did not have to split up because, for the first time, we only had one child's schedule to see!!!
