Catching Up

Well, VBS went well, but we didn’t have any major decisions made during that week. Of course, who knows what seeds were planted in those precious little minds. Time and eternity will tell, as they say. By the way, who is “they” anyhow? Does anybody really know? And why do “they” get all the credit for stuff? Is that fair? Saturday I had the youth group over for supper and a movie at the house. I fixed spaghetti, and the guys seemed to like it pretty well. Took us about 10 minutes to figure out what movie to watch. Ended… Continue reading

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.

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
