People tend to hate this Sunday of the year because they lose an hour of sleep and are so tired at church. (Especially the worship team who come really early.) Not this year!
Today was an amazing day at Celebration. We did something new called, "GET YOUR HOUR OF SLEEP BACK" SUNDAY. We started service at 11:30 AM instead of 10:30 AM. And...
Our amazing team served pancakes, scrambled eggs and sausage to everyone, along with coffee, tea, milk and juice. During service! They loved it!
I am so thankful for the faithfulness of God and His people. Our team worked together to make this day an amazing hit!
Speaking of amazing, tomorrow morning my husband is taking me...
on a cruise to Key West and the Bahamas! Yes, we are going on another cruise. I have a husband who is now
possessed, addicted very fond of cruises. Ever since the church sent us on our first one last April for Pastor Appreciation, he has been hooked on this form of relaxation. Hey, I'm not complaining! With the extra workload I've been juggling for quite some time now, our last two cruises have pretty much kept me sane. Cruises, Max, a few church workers who are worth their weight in gold, and Jesus, of course. Jesus, Jesus, Jesus. Where would I be without Jesus?
Speaking of Jesus (don't you love my segues?) He gave me a great idea for a blog series about abuse and we kicked it off Friday with an amazing testimony from a woman named *Karen who escaped from her abusive husband. Her two incredible posts are here and here. Check them out if you haven't already. Then be sure to show up every day this week, Monday through Saturday, we've got a post every single day that is power packed that will speak to this issue. I'm kicking it off in the morning before I head for the boat. :)
My blogger friends who are guest posting this week will be around to chat with you all week long here on the blog comments and on my facebook page when it publishes there. They are eager to dialogue with you about the posts, and to assist anyone who might reach out for help.
I'm really grateful to have them in my life, really thankful to have you here reading, and oh so happy that my husband loves me enough to whisk me away for breaks. [blows kiss] Love you all...
