Just have to share this...

last night I took Mia to the church building early for GIFTS class .... I stayed because I had some work on my bible study class to do and was going to work on the calendar some too.... I had finished my work in my classroom and decided to walk over to the church offices to do some work on the calendar.... but I forgot to get something so I walked back over to the church building.... I walk across the foyer (sp?) when something catches my eye.... I stop turn back and what do I see..... a snake loose in the foyer!!! AHAHHAHAHAHAH! The class come running and then we have half a dozen women and teenage girls squealing!!!! Needless to say..... Jeff Dye is the hero!!! He came when I called him and got rid of the snake!!! Life is never boring!!!

Its looking busy....

for us these next few months..... I was working on the calendar and with all the youth events, Lads to Leaders practices, work schedules and everyday things ..... we are pretty much booked solid from now until Easter. Goodness!!! But we really wouldn't have it any other way! We feel that we are truly blessed with being able to work so much with our children and other youth as much as we do!!

For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them. Eph 2:10

This makes me think of the story of the cracked vessel..... ever heard it....

There was an old man that had to walk to get his water.... each day he would take a yoke and go down to the water source (about 1/2 mile away ) and get water. One of the vessels on the yoke had a crack in it and leaked water...... after some time of watching him do this his neighbor complained that he should replace the cracked vessel..... but the man asked the neighbor to walk with him the next time he went for water...... on the way the neighbor noticed that one side of the path was a wonderful little garden... flowers so beautiful ...... and commented on the garden. The old man smiled and kept walking.... on the way home the neighbor noticed that the water leaking from the cracked pot was watering the garden....... now he understood why the old man used the cracked pot...

We are like that cracked pot..... even with our flaws God can still use us!!!

Good Day .....Thursday's Thoughts

Oh, how I miss sitting at my computer in the mornings planning out the day. Now I sit here, reading through my email, facebook and blogs that I like to keep up with before I wisk away to a job that really has no way to plan for it..... its unpredictable..... always different..... no day is the same. Well, there are a few things that don't change.... but when you are dealing with the public ...... the SICK public.... well lets just say some days are an adventure.

God has shown me that although I really cannot plan my work day He is there with me..... when the day is hectic and chaotic .... He is my peace. When the day is full of trouble and heartache.... He is my comfort. When the day is long and hard ...... He is my resting place. There is no other like HIM .... He is all that I need and always there to be what I need. Every day is a Good Day with God.

hello out there!

Goodness! I find that working full time (and sharing the laptop with Eric) has really caused me to fall far, far behind on posting here on the blog. So, here is an update....

Eric's garden has produced so much this year! We have been so blessed with a wonderful harvest!
Onions, corn, summer squash, zuchinni, winter squash, okra, snap beans, lima beans, popcorn, and decorative gourds..... we have put up so much it is wonderful!!!

We have sent off for Travis and Mia's passports. We are still praying that the trip to Russia is in God's will for them! They are still very excited to have the opportunity.

School has started and the kids are off to a great start. Eric has turned into a wonder at the teaching!!!

Travis has turned 16.... when did my first start growing into manhood???? Time goes so quickly!

Well, I'm off to get some rest. It was a very, very busy day at the pharmacy today!!!
