Surprise! Two days in a row!
I guess I'm really needing to connect.
At least, I've moved from the sofa to the chair today.
That's a big step.
In the almost two years that we've been here,
I've done little decorating.
I had hoped to share my "pink" bedroom,
which is actually gray,
during Valentine's week.
I didn't add anything except the side table and lamp,
but it made me feel good to make up the bed
if only for photos.
I used pink in my wedding.
It's always been my favorite color of choice
as most of you well know.
I love the ambience here.
This decor always makes me smile.
It will always be my favorite room.
I had intended to share everyday in February with you,
but of course, life happened.
So, you'll just get a glimpse.
Somewhere between then and now,
this little girl grew up.
When did this happen? How did this happen?
This is my niece ready to go to her 8th grade Sweetheart dance.
I can still see my little girl behind the make up and glam.
She has a piece of my heart,
as these have my heart.
We kept the girls last Friday for the the mommies
and daddies to have some time together.
They had so much fun!
Grandy enjoyed some one on one time with
our oldest baby girl.
David is beginning to find some connection.
He has been officially appointed Youth Pastor.
The thought scares me to death.
Being a PK, I know the expectations
the church has for its leaders.
This is a big step for him.
He's an introvert by nature,
but a quiet, strong leader.
It's intiminading when you're surrounded
by seminary pastors, doctors and professors,
educators and the educated.
I told him, "They have the education. You have the experience."
Doing youth ministry in the big city is not like
doing it in a small town among a core group of leaders
you started doing ministry with 35 years ago.
It's a challenge that we are looking at as opportunity.
These kids are precious.
They are small, but mighty warriors for God.
God is growing the church and that is exciting to watch.
It's not been an easy February.
This is how we do crazy when the whole family is sick and shut-in for days.
Gonna start speaking some positive affirmations DAILY!
