Jordan's going to nationals...



We’re back from fine arts. Jordan received superior with invitation and advanced with both his short sermon and drum solo. So he’s headed to Charlotte, NC to compete. We’re proud of him, and of all the kids. They all did a fantastic job. It’s been a long tiring weekend as fine arts weekend always is, but worth it. Although Larry and I don’t stay with the kids and stay up all night or anything it’s still a long weekend for me in getting back and having so much work to do in prep for Sunday. It’s not that we procrastinate and leave things til’ the last minute, it’s simply that (as most pastors realize) there is no way to get it all done during the week. There are always loose ends. I feel like my life many times is all about "loose ends" and "picking up dropped balls" and "catching stuff that falls through the cracks..." I think every pastor's wife could give a hearty AMEN to that. It's sort of in our job description, but I'm not complaining in the least. God has honored and favored me.

I’m back home now and walked three miles as soon as I got home. Then I got to working on the loose ends, going over my notes again for tomorrow, clothes ready, house cleaned and ready for leadership meeting tomorrow night. We have the meetings at our home so I have to have everything in shape at home and ready to go and we share a meal together beforehand so even though most times everyone brings a dish to share, I have to have everything set up for dinner such as plates, cups, napkins, flatware, drinks, yada yada yada. It’s something we do every time and although it’s work I don’t mind getting everything together for it because I believe so much in the importance of hospitality and also time for fellowship with our team.

I am stirred with an extra special appreciation and love for Larry today…just feeling how blessed we are to have each another. Most would never understand the relationship we have. Even those who are closer to us still have no idea what we are to one another. Some things are just unexplainable. I love my Teeby.
