I am so excited!!
I won the essay contest I entered for my walk! Amazing. I can't believe it! So after my spaghetti dinner, whatever I don't make of the $2200, the contest will cover. What a relief!! I have to say that I completely wrote from my heart. I don't think I am that great of a writer (especially if you compare me to my sister Sara) but I love to do it. I can't believe I won! Amazing.
Yesterday at Fuel, I was walking in with one of my favorite 6th graders, actually she's going into 7th this year but for Small Groups she stays with the 6th graders until Fall. It's great because she's so open with her faith, she is not afraid to talk and helps the others open up. She reminds me a a star! She's bright and beamy. So we're walking in, she says "Margie will you Baptise me?" ARE YOU KIDDING ME? in my head I am thinking. I am so not worthy. But truly honored. Maybe it's not a big deal to everyone but to me, oh my gosh. It's such an important day for someone and SHE ASKED ME to share it with her!! My answer of course was yes.

Just looked up Biblegateway's verse of the day: “Good will come to him who is generous and lends freely, who conducts his affairs with justice.”- Psalm 112:5
