Fine Arts Weekend

Today we are in Orlando all day for AG Fine Arts FestivaI where Jordan and members of the youth group are competing. I needed to get up at 5 am for such and we needed to leave at 6:30 am. Needless to say this NEVER happens to me but either the alarm did not go off or I slept through it. We sprang up at 6:26 and were out the door without really “getting ready” like we normally do. Suffice it to say I felt yuck, but there was nothing we could do. Larry and I simply don’t believe in being late. We ended up being early anyway because their time to compete was changed.

The kids are staying at a hotel but Larry and Savanna and I are staying with our friends Pastor Gary & Tammy Rice who pastor here in Orlando. They graciously offered their home and wanted to spend time with us and of course we love spending time with them.
Jordan did an INCREDIBLE job on both his sermon and his drum solo. I can hardly wait to see if he’ll place this year. Last year he placed 3rd in state for sermon. I did not see the other entries except one so I don’t know what to expect. I told him today, whether he wins anything or not, to me he did absolutely ASTOUNDING. Seriously, I am so proud of him!

After dinner tonight before we went to our friend’s house, Larry and I found a park in Altamonte Springs that was absolutely beautiful. They had a walking trail and I got a few miles in after dinner. They even had a live band! I was a little concerned about not having time to walk a few miles today because I’ve been so good over the previous weeks to never miss a day but Sunday. When I said I got serious…I meant it. I had planned to either walk extremely late night tonight or double tomorrow when I got home, but now I don’t have to. I love it when God provides something that is not only what I need, but he does it in such a beautiful way.

I am blessed.
