What a week!
Lots of good, some not-so-good. Blessed, no doubt.
We started the week off with an open house for all the Children's Ministry volunteers at our house. We began this tradition last year and it was a huge hit!
We were beaming with joy as Rainbow Brite made her singing debut last Sunday at our church Children's Christmas Musical.
Always fun to get these three together from our church.
Mister Green and I had a fun date night going shopping for Rainbow Brite!!!
Left work quickly to go purchase hand-sanitizer and Lysol to help stop all the cooties coming from some of the kids I see for speech, was returning to school so I could eat my lunch and wouldn't ya know it, I got one of THESE:
I was doing 47 in a 35. I am one of the safest drivers I know!!!!! I haven't had a ticket in....I think it was 1999. Hmph. I was speeding and there was no way around it. Didn't even try to get out of it. The irony is that my $173.00 ticket was given on the same stinkin' day I got my $500 bonus from work!!! GRRRRRR!
Rainbow Brite was so proud of herself for buying her Daddy a couple of presents and wrapping them all by herself.
Mister Green was a wonderful shepherd in our church Christmas worship experience and musical. We are with an interim music minister right now and the lay leadership of our church OUT-DID themselves with the production this year!!!!
There was a great need for me to sit down and go page by page of this little book that sits on our end table. I NEEDED to be reminded of the joys and blessings of Christmas and all through the year.
Though it turned out for the better, it was really a rough week for me last week. For now I'll just leave you with the good. In another post I'll expound on the way God worked in me to get through the struggles of this last year concerning adoption.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding, but in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5-6
Make it a point to CELEBRATE the birth of Jesus!!!
He is the reason we have HOPE!
