Pastor’s Wife Takes a Tumble and Other Attempts by the Devil to Thwart VBS

After several sleepless hours last night, I got up and went to the church to decorate for VBS. I got there early with hopes of getting finished fairly early and getting other things done at the house. Since I’m just coordinating this year, my task for today was decorating the chapel where the kids will have opening session each evening. I noticed it was a little warm in the chapel and in the other rooms of the building as I walked around checking things out, but I figured the a/c either hadn’t been turned on or was turned on late… Continue reading

Well, here we are at the end of the weekend and a new work week beginning in the morning. I had a great weekend. Spent Friday evening with my husband and my mom-in-law. She bought a new car Friday and gave us her ’95 Buick LeSabre. It’s still in fairly good condition, too. What a very nice thing for her to do. Saturday, I just did what I wanted to do. I cleaned some in the house, cleaned up the car, took pics of the birds, made a cake for the grandsons, and bought groceries. Then I took a nap… Continue reading

diary entry – nate and josh

Number one grandson, Nate, is spending a few days with his uncle Josh. I’m sure they will have a lot of fun. I remember when Nate was born and Josh was coming to see him.

diary entry – blah day

i’m not sure why, but i feel a bit depressed tonight. maybe i’m just tired. nothing happened today to cause me to feel this way. in fact, the evening service was wonderful and worshipful. the teens did an excellent job of their number tonight. they performed under blacklight to Arise My Love. i tell you honestly, it was a very worshipful experience. more than one person was crying by the end of that number. so why do i feel sad? ah, maybe i’m just tired. i’ll feel better tomorrow, i’m sure.

The Wedding of Holly and Chris

After making sure that our grandson was safely tucked in his bed on Thursday (after his tonsillectomy), Dave and I headed off to Tennessee to the wedding of our niece, Holly. We traveled halfway and stopped outside of Knoxville for the night. aside:At the Holiday Inn Express, we slept on one of the most comfortable beds of our lives. If I could have figured out a way to get that mattress in our car, trust me, I would have done it. We arrived in Nashville Friday afternoon. The festivities began that evening with a ballgame and cookout, courtesy of Chris… Continue reading
