Hallelujah Chorus

This is hilarious! Maybe our choir should do this the
next time we attempt singing the Hallelujah Chorus. ;o)

I've decided that in an effort to do a post AT LEAST once a week, I'll start having Thursday randomness. Here it goes...
  • Last night finished up our Missions Month. It was a blessing to be able to hear from all of the different evangelists. Our theme was "For whom nothing is prepared," taken out of Nehemiah 8:10.
  • School has been fun with Lilly. She's full of energy, and is always saying things to make me laugh. :o) Today I had her draw some things that she likes. I gave her some examples, one of which was making cakes. When she showed me her drawings, she had..."I like making cakes and shoveling." I found it rather amusing. Oh, she also said Psalm 23 today without any help!
  • I can hear the mexican jumping beans clicking in their box. They bring back memories to a time when we were on our way home and stopped at 7-11 for gas. My dad went in to pay and came out with the beans for us kids. They're pretty entertaining!
  • Dessert tonight was yummy!
  • Fall is slowly slipping away. :(

A Mistake? I Think Not!

The other night the Lord laid our neighbor on my heart. I began to pray for this elderly couple and felt as if I should go visit them in another attempt to be a witness. When would I go? Do I just randomly show up on their doorstep? How would I do it? We hardly ever talk to them. There have been a few exchanges over the years, but not much more than that. Living in a rural area, you have to make it a point to go and talk to your neighbors. The only time you really see each other is when your coming and going, and even then you usually just wave.

When I was on my way home from work today I was feeling burdened for them. I began asking the Lord to show me when and how He wanted me to be a witness, and asking for boldness when that time came.

My skirt from Cabela's was scheduled to come today. You may be thinking, "What does that have to do with your neighbors?" Keep reading.

I get home and check my tracking to see where the package was and it said that it had been delivered and left at the front door. I looked all over the place and it was nowhere to be found. Where on earth could it be? Did the dog get ahold of it? He usually leaves packages alone. Did Josh get it? No. Hmmmmm....this never happens.

I called UPS. They called the driver and it turns out that he took it to the wrong house. Which house did they take it to? You guessed it! The neighbors the Lord had laid on my heart! So, needless to say I took the opportunity the Lord gave. What an awesome way for the Lord to open up that door of opportunity. We just need to be willing and ready to be used of Him! Hopefully we'll be able to continue to be a witness to this couple and see them come to the saving knowledge of Christ!

Do you know Christ? If not, I hope you'll take the time to visit at least one of the website links on the side of my blog.

(By the way, I love my skirt!)

When It's Quiet...

you better go check things out!

I was getting ready to head back to work when I realized that Violet was very quiet. Better find her and see what she's up to. We found her in Maggie's room doing her makeup! I'm not sure her parents are ready for her to grow up that quickly! :)

Here's what her makeup job looked like!

One night while they were here I was singing the B-I-B-L-E to her. It's amazing how fast kids pick up on things. The next morning and many days afterwards she would starting singing it. Although not the same as what I was singing, her version was so cute!

The B-I-B-L-E according to Violet: Biboo, Biboo, Biboo...Biboo, Biboo, Biboo.

Now That's Tacky

Last weekend the SPG's (Singles Pleasing God) had a tacky party. It was hilarious to see everyone in their tacky clothes and eat the tacky food they brought. We even had tacky decorations. It was great fun! Something I would definitely do again. :) Here's what we wore:
