Sunday morning cont.

WE had a little accident and lost Sunday's news. I am still trying to figure this all out. Lindsey got to hang out with this new friend and it made the morning go very smooth. Barrett saw her with three girls walking out from bible study with a big smile on her face. He liked to died he was so happy. Landon and Emilie did gray eat too. Drew hung with a boy who he met at our house who is the son of one of the ministers who has been over here. All was such a praise to God.

I felt really sad at bible study not knowing anyone. We sat in on a class like "ours" in at Colleyville. It is so weird to not be able to help with someone's baby that isn't in the nursery yet or just love on people!!!!! I'm the one who feels like a new middle school!!! Church was wonderful though. I got to meet Lindsey's math teacher for the program she will go to next year.

Sunday night was great in that a lady came over from the neighborhood that goes to our church. She ended up asking me to pray about teaching a bible study in our neighborhood in September. She said that they have done many studies but would really like to do one on marriage. AA HHAA AA HAA ( that's going to be the "Ariel" opera song I sing) I am so waiting on God to just show me what to do here. This was a God moment. Kari, Andrea, Amy, and Gina will appreciate that Diane also went on to say, "I will be your administrator and take care of all the details so you can just teach" Can you believe it!!!! God always supplies!!!!!! What I would have done without people like you helping me I do not know. for sure I would have shown up on the wrong day or FORGOTTEN ALL MY NOTES!!!! Remember that anyone?????

Man, the memories we have!!!! You must all take serious the chance to be part of what God does here by praying for the new ladies!!!!! This is a hurting world who needs to know our God and HIs sweet directions for our lives. I will probably do "The Excellent Wife" so ya'll could give some comments on it that help others feel excited about the study.

I will figure out how to post going away pictures. I am Sure everybody who was at the going away party can't wait to see how my shirt turned out!!!! SERIOUSLY, none of us can say thank you enough for all that everybody did for us to say good-bye. We have never and probably never will again feel soooooo honored!!!!! The biggest thanks in the world to Stephanie Doran, Nancy Kirby, Lynda Finney, Andrea Johnson, Catherine Miller, and Elizabeth Miller!!!!

I love you guys, now I have to figure out how to send this to everybody. WE lost half of what I typed last night!!! I was sooo mad!!!! Please forgive my grammar. Barrett would have a heart attack to check on my writing. I told him not to correct me!! I don't know how godly that is, ha ha. If you can't stand my "free form writing" you don't have to read it, how's that????? So many of you have encouraged me to do this thank you!!!! I do wish I was a writer like Barrett and Lindsey. I also wish you could put a real big tight hug from me in an email!!!!!!!

I am new to this blogging stuff too. But you seem to have the hang of it Jennifer-I am sitting here with my beautiful baby who has not been very happy all day, and when I told him that I really needed to read words from Jen Johnson, he has been happy ever since-Praise God! See even from miles away-you are calming our babies! Can't wait too read more.
