So I spent the whole weekend doing nothing but Emmaus stuff… or so it felt. Saturday, which was absolutely beautiful… again, I was inside all day at a team meeting for the June Walk. We even got out early, and I swear within 10 minutes of getting home, the temp dropped by about 20 degrees and it started snowing before dark. It is just wrong!! Oh, but I am really excited… one of the ladies that was in my now defunct reunion group is working the June walk. I haven’t seen her or spent any time with her since… since My walk I think, which was 3 years ago this month. That is a long time. She had gone to school… and is now done and working and now working a walk. I am so excited… and the other God thing… she is one of my prayer partners… and the people who did the prayer partners had no clue we use to be in a RG together!!! God is so good!!
Sunday I got to go to bridal shower for my friend’s dd, who was in the youth group when I was a youth sponsor. Yes, I am past the feeling old part… that happened when Jeani had her baby almost 3 years ago (I was her confirmation mentor when she was in 8th grade :)) Then I left and went to the min x min for the walk next week. Yes, they have everything on a weekend broken down that close… making sure that stuff is where it needs to be when. it is an amazing thing.
And then last night I have my reunion group. I have missed these ladies… it has been too many weeks since we all actually made it!! We worked on stuff for the walk. I am so excited. Did I mention I am sponsoring someone??? My first time sponsoring someone I don’t really know. God is stretching me this time, that is for sure… It is going to be good!!
Today I went to a funeral for a wonderful woman who lead such a Christ centered life. It is so great to go to a memorial and have it be such a celebration. I hope my funeral is that nice when the time comes and that everyone says how I lived my life to Honor the Lord!!
I had applied to join a blog group over the weekend… and had to giggle when my reason for not being accepted was that I hadn’t had my blog going for over a month. I have had a blog so long… it just might have changed locations… but it has been a part of my life for so long!!! And if you google Crayons… I show up in the first 2 pages… or at least I use too… haven’t done it in a bit… but if you google Crayonsetc… it is all me… or links to me I emailed them back and said that must have been a problem from when I updated my wordpress and will fix it. I got it fixed now… so there are archives and a calendar and comments in the side bar… but when I tried to move them to different locations in the side bar, it just didn’t work…. so I put it back to where it started and will have to recruit some help from some friends I know html, but not too good with the php stuff!!!
Almost half way done until Belinda gets back from England. I am enjoying having F every day, but I have forgotten how tiring it can be having a 2 year old running around the house. I think having her here has cured the baby cravings… K is 10 years old now, do I really want to start over? Yes… and it is easier when you start from not crawling and work your way up!! Oh my goodness…. it is april. Oh, so not going there!!!
Oh, and I got a call about VBS tonight. I had told them that I would do whatever they need me to do… I had signed up to work with preschool. Today she asked if I would coordinate the preschool crafts. (figuring we need to do different stuff than the older kids). See, another God thing… cuz VBS is the same week as the June walk. Doing this… as long as i have it all coordinated, it won’t matter if I miss Friday! (and being conference room, I don’t have to be at the walk until 4 on Thursday, so I can still do Thursday morning stuff… this is June though, not next week!!) Life just seems to be getting crazy… or just busy. And this is without a job. I can’t imagine doing all this with a job… but I promised dh!!
So, go hug your loved ones, tell them how much you love them… and enjoy your day.
