My Life

Phyllis has been gone for 3 days, today she comes home. She's at Choir Conference. I've missed her since the minute she left.

You'd think I would have packed my weekend with stuff that I liked, however, Thursday I cleaned house, Friday after work I came home, ate leftovers from Wednesday night's taco fiesta :), watched a couple shows and went to bed at 9:30. I'm just exciting. Saturday I got up did a little Christmas shopping and then spent the day with Adam, Favot, & Jon Whaley looking at camps for our Winter Retreat. I have to say, that it was great! We listened to sermons, talked about a bunch of stuff, talked about the kids and how to impact them, it was great, you would think 11 hours in a car with 3 guys would have been horrible, but we all have one purpose, bringing kids to Jesus. Because of our route, we went through a lot of small towns, I will be making that trip all by myself to check out some quaint towns to just look around.

Today is church, I have all the stuff thawing to make Shepard's Pie for Phyllis because she returns today! It's her favorite! After church I will come home, do some laundry, make cookies and Shephard's pie, and then go pick her up! I can't wait to see her! I've missed her so much!! Everytime I thought of doing something I thought "it would be more fun if PHyllis was here".

Song of Solomon 6:9 but my dove, my perfect one, is unique, the only daughter of her mother, the favorite of the one who bore her. The maidens saw her and called her blessed; the queens and concubines praised her.
