Whoa!


I am so tired but it's a good tired! I have never slept through my alarm on Sunday, but I did today. No worries, even if I got up late I wouldn't be late to church. I'd get up and go in my jammies if that's what it took to be there in my place and on time. It's just the kinda girl I am. Anyhoo, THANK GOD FOR MADDIE! She woke me up barking, 45 minutes after I had slept through my alarm. I was running 45 minutes behind my normal schedule but I sprang up, sprinted to the shower, got out and simplified my getting ready routine and walked out the door in half the time it normally takes and got there right on time.

We had an extremely full day today. Larry and I did a tag team message entitled, "Reconcilable Differences." Larry's parents couldn't wait to tell me how much they loved it. There were the usual elements of the day ~ rehearsal, Christian Ed., morning worship, then the youth fine arts had a fundraiser -- and we supported that and then headed off to lunch at Pipo's with my in-love's, Garlands, Sue, and John and their kids. It was a great lunch just enjoying one another's company. We were so late after lunch that we decided to just go back to the church and stay and get ready for the Fireproof movie that we showed tonight. Some days are so busy it's just best not to go back home if we have an evening service or activity.

The youth were rehearsing all afternoon and prepping for their next fine arts fundraiser tonight which is a movie snack bar for Fireproof and child care. They are working hard and Dustin and Casey are doing a fantastic job of leading it. I'm not just saying that cause they're my kids. This afternoon at lunch Sue said, "you know, I just want you to know...Dustin is doing SUCH a great job with this ministry..." Yep, that's our boy. I told him the other day I am going to give him a new nickname: "P.J." which stands for pride & joy but he said, "Ah...Mom, please don't do that..." (with an attitude like, "I really don't need you to embarrass me any more.") Sometimes a Momma just can't help it. I am so proud of that boy sometimes I just feel like I'm going to burst.

We had a fantastic turnout for the Fireproof showing tonight. I was delighted by the response!

We got home and my in-love's crashed and went to bed immediately, hours before they have been the whole week. I think our Sunday schedule was a bit shocking for them and completely did them in. Tomorrow's new day! The time with them has gone by so fast...TOO FAST! I can't believe it. It feels like they just walked in the door and Wednesday they will be leaving...I don't want to think about it. So for now...I won't.
