Overwhelmed... with nothing to do

I'm back from Nebraska. Really, no great exciting stories to tell you except that a soccer star gave me his phone number in line at security in the Detroit Airport. That was funny and cool.

I realized something quite odd about me, ok, I'm just pointing out one thing... I don't do well relaxing. I had a great time, don't get me wrong, it was fabulous and there was some very much needed rest this weekend, but I was ready to come home and get back to the daily routine of nuts that I call my life.

I wasn't home an hour and I was back at church, cleaning and getting ready for Alive. We have so much going on, and by the way, we're having a Spaghetti Dinner for a fundraiser to help the kids earn their way to Winter Camp. Tickets are $10 each, $5 goes towards their trip. AND they have to work at the Spaghetti dinner (12-9-07) in some way or they can't earn their money. And in case you know Mac, he has 5 (and he can get more) to help offset the cost of his trip, so buy some :) I'm cooking, so you know the food is good. And if you don't know Mac, I have some too. I was so glad to be home and glad to be loving on my kids.

Phyllis came home from her Choir Conference, she had a good time, met some new friends, and I was very glad to see her. I missed her A LOT. Sometimes I just can't believe how much grace God gives me with such a wonderful, beautiful, sassy child.

I'm busy from now until Christmas. I'm so proud of my kids who are stepping up and out for the Glory of the Kingdom, they are volunteering at Grace Centers of Hope this weekend, there is so much going on there, God is moving in amazing ways, and I'm blessed to be a part of it.

How was your weekend? How did God reveal His love to you?

And the quote of the weekend:
God always answered prayers
Sometimes He answers our prayers with "Yes.'
Sometimes He answers our prayers with "No.'
Sometimes He says, "Wait a while.'
And sometimes God might answer, "You've got to be kidding.' ”
-Former President Jimmy Carter

Gal 6:7-10 7Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. 8The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature[a]will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. 9Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. 10Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.

Glad you back home safe and sound! God reveals His love in all kinds of ways - we just have to recognize them!
