God showed up!



I knew something great would happen today! The greatest thing about morning service was that Bobby got saved! Many other people did too (at least seven in kids church and I'd say probably four or five in adult service) and although all those people are incredibly special...Bobby is super duper special. I have been saying for a while...if Bobby gets saved, look out world! He's crazy, totally crazy (see photos above) and has no fear. He'll be the devil's worst nightmare. I know my boys are so very happy right now that he has made this decision. Just to see the joy in Dustin's eyes...and the smile across his face. I know he has been a tremendous witness in Bobby's life.

The day began today just like I envisioned...early...dark...I was up long before everybody else putting lunch food in the oven, making sweet rolls, putting out the Easter baskets, feeding the dog, letting the dog out, and oh yeah...getting myself ready for church. As I was getting ready to leave for church I woke the kids up and they got their Easter baskets. I think Bobby was surprised to get his too. He especially commented on the Axe shower gel. He said, "does the Easter bunny think I stink?" Typical Bobby. He also said the sweet rolls were sent from heaven...

Going into worship rehearsal I wasn't surprised that we had some equipment breakdowns/malfuctions. It's par for the course especially for a special day. I knew something great was in store.

The parking lot greeters were out today and did a great job. I think everyone really enjoyed the new special touch. Continental breakfast went well. I got to greet a lot of people but ran out of time before greeting everyone who was there. Service went great except for one small keyboard malfunction. We had a good number of people saved which was the greatest part of the day and the reason for it all.

We came home for lunch with Mackleys, Garlands, and our precious Bobby. We had a HUGE Easter dinner complete with Misty's creamy corn, and Cathy's Razzleberry pie. :) It was so good.

But the best part of all was that Bobby got saved. Can you believe this is THE FIRST TIME HE'S EVER IN HIS LIFE BEEN TO CHURCH?! Walking into Northside was his first time EVER going to church. God is so good. Today was the first day of a wonderful new life for Him, in Jesus.
