Yesterday was off the chain!

It wasn't "my day" yesterday for Father's Day but oh MY, was I ever blessed!

I was expecting a great day at church but I had no idea what was in store.  Worship and everything else went well but the biggest surprise was when Larry came to the pulpit to preach and he said, "we've got something extra special today...I'm going to invite my son Dustin to the pulpit and this morning we're going to present a tag team message!"  You could have just knocked me off my seat.  I had no idea!  They surprised even me and worked on this message without me knowing! 

Dustin has been preaching in youth periodically in addition to  leading worship.  He does have the call of God upon his life and is cultivating that, however, he has not preached in Sunday morning service.  This was a first!  It was amazing!!!  What a job he did.

We are going to be putting the message on the podcast asap and I am going to post the link here when we get it up.  I was hoping to have it by last night however with the Father's Day festivities it will have to wait til' Monday.

Sunday morning I just realized once again how very blessed I am.  There's no greater joy than to have your kids serve God and follow Him wholeheartedly.  This past week I was prompted once again to read and pray through, "The Power of a Praying Mother" and "The Power of a Praying Wife" again.  Those are two books that have really blessed me and impacted my life and family.  They have helped us navigate many waters.  When I go through Sundays like this past one I realize that every moment of prayer that has ever gone up to heaven on behalf of my family has been more than worth it. 

We had a great day yesterday relaxing with our family and friends.  After some amazing steaks on the grill we laid around, napped and watched the movie, "Leap Year."  Fun!

Here's to a great week ahead...not claiming a manic Monday...believing for a miraculous one.

Deanna, we had a great Sunday also. Kristian and Shannon Walker came to minister as "Leaders of Worship" for the weekend. They even held a conference for the worship teams...which my husband greatly enjoyed!! I've been reading the Gift of the Holy Spirit Today...a loan from my pastor. It has opened my eyes to the necessity of daily verbal exaltation of Jesus in our lives to bring the power of the Holy Spirit to Its fulness . I will tune in later today to hear the message! Can't wait. You must be sooo proud! :)
