I love it when the teenagers help me out with dramas in CrossWalk. This is about Solomon trying to figure out who the baby belonged to. When Solomon said "cut it in half", the boy sitting in the dark shirt gasped!! they were so in to it!!
Then we went out side for a survivor type "wisdom" challenge. some of the things they had to do was eat 10 crackers, memorize scripture, hula hoop. It was a blast!
It looks a bit light out in this picture but it was so dark from the storm that it seemed like 9:00 at night. You wouldn't believe the amount of rain that came down...really, we might float away. Rain is on the forecast for the next few days....ugh.
Tonight was our senior banquet at church. We only have 3 seniors graduating this year. What? you only see 2 on stage? That's because the 3rd one is in Africa with her parents on the mission field. so we videoed the evening for her!!! Such a fun and uplifting night!
Love these center pieces one of the ladies made!!
I can not wait to learn how to make these flowers.....very cute!!!
Everyone went home today, but I stayed to help Alyssa finish packing up. Tonight, 2 of her best friends came to the hotel to hang out. We all snuggled up on the king sized bed and watched the Survivor finale together......SO much fun!!!
Today was crazy busy. We had to rush out of church and head to Conway about 30 minutes from LR. We met my BF and her kids for lunch before we quickly headed over to the auditorium on the UCA campus. There Jared had his Youth Symphony concert....which of course was awesome!!!
Got to visit with my friend, Lori, today. I forgot to take a picture so I took one of your house as I drove away! Lori and I live in the same area, but met originally by blogging. I thought she lived in a town about 15 minutes from here, but found out this week that she is practically in my back yard!!!!
Took this from my car. This is the AR river and you can't really tell but the water is extremely high! I tried to get the boat slip with boats still attached to it floating in the river, but missed it as I drove by. The flooding has done major damage in our area. Even the interstate from here to Memphis has been closed due to water!!
Arkansas has really been hit hard this spring. Last night we had a huge storm with flash flooding. So many homes were flooded. You can see that the water came with in 5 inches of flooding the church foyer.
I marked the two NEW waterfalls we have at the back of our lot...gushing water...crazy!!!
But the good news today is that I finally saw our family of geese!!! This is their 5 years to come to our church pond that I know of. I love watching them!!
I am a woman in mid-life who loves the Lord and her family!! I am the mom of 3 absolutely amazing kids (23, 21, 19) who make my life happy, crazy, busy.....perfect! I am also a pastor's wife. I try to live each day looking for where God is working so that I can join him there.
I am attempting to take one photograph each day of this next year. My hope is to be able to slow down and see the small things, become a better photographer and to be reminded of the many blessings God sends my way!
