Waiting on 5:00

I know it's early in the day to be waiting for the clock to strike 5:00, but I am a little anxious today. We will be leaving right after work to go out of town. Tonight we are going to spend the night in Dothan with my daddy and tomorrow we are off to Florida to spend the weekend with my brother and his family. He will be retiring from the Air Force on Monday. Way to go brother! Big Poppa will be doing the prayer at his retirement ceremony. What an honor! They have 3 kids-1 boy and 2 girls. Needless to say The Rock Star and Silly are super excited to get to visit with their cousins. I will be off all of next week too! I can't wait.
Being reminded that Thanksgiving is coming up I just want to say that I am thankful for my brother serving our country for the last 24 years. I honor you today!
I hope everybody has a blessed Thanksgiving!

Youth Retreat

Here's some pics from the youth retreat this past weekend. The view was amazing!

Here's The Rock Star during silent covenant! Looks a little like sleep covenant. Who knew he could be so still!

This was during communion after they had squeezed their own juice from grapes!

Here's the gang! We have a great brunch of kids.

Told you the view was amazing!

Happy Monday!

Donuts with Dad

Silly's school had donuts with dad this morning. How cute is that? Big Poppa has to be at work at 5:00am, but he came back home to get her and take her to school so they could have their daddy/daughter time. Awe!
I Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Burger King

I feel the need to share with all of you how our Saturday went this past weekend. Once a month our skating rink/church has an all night skate. Big Poppa had to do a devotion and show a video Friday night at midnight (insert age here=too old to stay up past midnight) so, we didn't get home until about 2:30am with our precious 5 year old Silly that was still awake, but crying and fussing, and crying some more. Go to bed only to have to get back up at 6:30am to pick up The Rock Star from where we had just left a few short hours ago (teenagers-grrrrrr). Got back up again about 11:00am b/c Silly had a birthday party to go to at Burger King (reminds me of this you tube broadcast MAD tv - Bon Qui Qui at King Burger anyway) The party is running a little late and guess what? I have locked my keys in the car? Is my husband at home? Yes! Does he have a car there? No! (we left it at the skating rink the night/morning before) Is my neighbor home? No! So, I'm sitting there wishing Bon Qui Qui worked here, but she don't so I have to think of something else. I call somebody from church that lives close by to pick me up. Problem solved! The Rock Star also had a birthday party to go to and b/c of the key issue we got there so late everybody else was already gone. At least they are family friends so we stayed for a while anyway. Kids only want gifts! HA! They don't really care if you missed the entire party. Moving on....the day was still not done. We had to go to The Guitar Players concert thingy being that she is the girlfriend and everything we felt the need to go. She did a great job BTW. Sunday was better. After church and lunch we crashed for 2 maybe 3 hours!
Good times!

News part II

Remember in this post I said I would have bigger news? Well, see below! Of course my name is under the black line. I am truly humbled! Big Poppa was already ordained under another ministry, but he was ordained under this ministry as well on Sunday. God has brought us so far and I can only look forward to what is to come. To God be the glory!

What a guy

This was part of an email from a dear friend of mine. Her husband was our Pastor for about 9 years. She is referring to her son that is a junior in college. If this don't make you want to do more for the cause of Christ then I don't know what would! May his cup runneth over.....

This past sunday Josh became a liscensed minister from the church -- he was about one of eight set in order -- somebody gave him a 50 dollar bill after service and then he went and found some homeless people in the woods and bought all of them something to eat and spent the day with them.

(10-16 points) You are Garfield :
You are very comfortable, easy going, and you definitely know how to have fun but sometimes you take it to an extreme. You always know what you are doing and you are always in control of your life. Others may not see things as you do, but that doesn't mean that you always have to do what is right. Try to remember, your happy spirit may hurt you or others.
(17-23 points) You are Snoopy:
You are fun, you are very cool and popular. You always know what's in and you are never are out of style You are good at knowing how to satisfy everyone else. You have probably disappeared for a few days more than once but you always come home with the family values that you learned Being married and having children are important to you, but only after you have had ! your share of fun times
(24-28 points) You are Elmo:
You have lots of friends and you are also popular, always willing to give advice and help out a person in need. You are very optimistic and you always see the bright side of things. Some good advice: try not to be too much of a dreamer. Dreaming too big could cause many conflicts in your life.
(29-35 points) You are Sponge Bob Square Pants:
You are the classic person that everyone loves. You are the best friend that anyone could ever have and never wants to lose. You never cause harm to anyone and they would never not understand your feelings. Life is a journey, it's funny and calm for the most part. Stay away from traitors and jealous people, and you will be stress free.
(36-43 points) You are Charlie Brown:
You are tender, you fall in love quickly but you are also very serious about all relationships. You are a family person. You call your Mom every Sunday. You have many friends and may occasionally forget a few Birthdays. Don't let your passion confuse you with reality.
(44-50 points) You are Dexter:
You are smart and definitely a thinker... Every situation is fronted with a plan. You have a brilliant mind. You demonstrate very strong family principles. You maintain a stable routine but never ignore a bad situation when it comes. Try to do less over thinking every once in a while to spice things up a bit with spontaneity!
Now don't spoil it! Have some Fun!! Change the subject of the email to what you are and send it on.
