Forgiveness, God's Masterpiece & Choir

As you know, we had to set our clocks back last night. I am glad we did. I went to sleep really late in the morning. We got up in plenty of time to make it to church. Pastor Steve gave a wonderful message. It hit home hard on a few points with the forgiveness. I have a couple of things I need to get past. I am so glad that I am a work in progress and that God doesn't leave you the way you are!

Mana went to eat with Anggie and Lauryn at McDonald's. I stayed at church to set up for the painting event. Thanks to Debbie, Rebecca and Britney I got finished right on time! I was a lot, not a little, a lot stressed out. I did not see us pulling it all together on time. It seemed like nothing was going right. The gym floors had been done and the fellowship hall smelled horrible. I had not eaten and was a little light headed from that and the fumes. I could not find all the door prizes. I could go on, but I will not. It all turned out fine. Stressing out for nothing! We started 30 minutes late. Everyone had a great time and did wonderful on their pictures and that is what really counts!! Debbie, Millie, Rebecca and Britney stayed and helped me clean up. Anggie came and got Mana and took the girls to Sonic for supper while I went to my Bible study. Then the kids had choir. They got to listen to the songs they are going to sing for the Christmas Musical. I stayed at the Church for nine hours straight today. It made me appreciate the fact that I do not have to work. It also made me admire the ones that work and also come to church on Wednesday nights. I use to be one of those individuals. I am exhausted! How did I ever do that?

The painting event was SO great! You are a lovely leader! Thank you for the way you serve.

P.S. You are also the coolest with the doll box - other moms should hang their heads in shame.

You are way cool Tammy! I love the Barbie doll box! Mana is quite the model! I wish I had an ounce of your creativity. God has surely blessed you!
