VBS Humor

VBS humor: Monday's story was about Andrew introducing Simon to Jesus and Jesus giving him the name Peter. Yesterday morning I was trying to get my preschoolers to recall Monday's story. I asked, "Who met Jesus and who did Jesus give a new name?" You could see the concentration as they all tried to recall the story. Then sweet Owen pipes in and says something very quietly. "What Owen?" He said, "Peter Piper."

Gotta love those preschoolers.

So, this week is Vacation Bible School. But, for some reason, after only 1 day, I am already exhausted. I cannot figure it out. Is it just having to leave the house that exhausts me? I don't get up any earlier. We get home at lunch time. I just cannot figure it out.

I am teaching the pre-school group, including Baby K, which makes things tough. When Mama is around, she does not want to participate in anything and just wants to sit in my lap or be held. Now, I love that she wants to be in my lap or be held. Love it. But it is impossible to try to teach and lead 6 more children while I have a 35-pound leech attached to me. But I love my Baby K. I love the hugs and kisses, and her random "I love you, Mama" that she says at just the right time.

So we will keep on pushing on through this week, looking forward to the Blueberry Festival in Brewton this weekend, and vacay in two weeks. Leigh and her crew are accompanying us. I wanted to stay several days so we could not stay right on the beach, but we will be staying about 25 minutes away. As long as the place has a pool, the kids and teenagers will be set. We may only go to the beach 1 day out of the 4. But that is okay, too. A couple of hours on the beach and we'll all be burnt to the point of misery. It's as if sunblock does not even matter (but it will be used!).

Hope you all have a wonderfully blessed day!

Prayers Needed

I have so much going on in my mind right now, and I really could use your prayers. It is nothing that I can talk about, just an issue I need to let go of. All of your prayers for strength, determination, and healing would be appreciated.

Oh Lucky Day!

Remember when I told y'all about losing the diamond from my wedding ring? Well, the home owners' insurance will cover it up to $1500....minus the $1000 deductible. But yesterday, Leigh called me to say she found the diamond!!!! Can you believe that? It was in her dining room floor, despite a week and a half's worth of sweeping!! Mr. Wonderful told me to drive to Georgia and buy some lottery tickets because yesterday was my lucky day! So, I am patiently awaiting the reunion with my wedding diamond and I am sure the insurance company will be glad not to pay for it.

I am almost ready to show you the dining room. A few more touches are being waited on......but it's coming together so well. I love my red dining room again!!
