Well, only 4 more days until I become a Mother-in-Law. It seems so crazy that so much time has passed and my little one is old enough to marry. But, here we are. I'm so happy for Craig and Paula. They seem so well suited for each other. This will be a new phase in all of our lives. As far as the wedding, we're practically ready, just a few more things to check off our to-do list. It will go fast but I'm hoping to take sage advise from my sister and enjoy every minute. I can collapse once we're back home :)
Wednesday ended our gospel meeting in Auburn. Brother Robert Harkrider and his wife came for a much too short Sunday through Wednesday gospel meeting. It was so wonderful. He brought us lessons from I John. So much of the scripture he used (not just from I John) he spoke from memory. He taught the College Class at our house Sunday night and had a great lesson using Daniel as an example. What a great week we had - a spiritual feast!
Thursday afternoon we left heading for Virginia. We spent the night in NC with Tommy and Wicky. It was so nice catching up with them and talking OSH curriculum with Wicky. My cousin in VA is getting married tonight. We came knowing that there's a good possibility for snow - a lot of snow. We woke up to whiteness outside and it continues to snow! We were hoping that it wouldn't come quite this far. The wedding is at 6:00 tonight and I hope we're able to get there! We did have a feast of seafood last night, the waiter showed us how to efficiently get meat out of crab legs. We had a fun time. It was too dark to see any of the sights at Williamsburg or Jamestown and today - everything is closed. We might just have to come back to see the sights.
Feast of family - Mom's first cousins and my second cousins all got together last night in the hotel. We're all staying at the same place, so if we're snowed, we surely won't be bored! Mom with her cousins is just a sight to see. I can't explain it but it's fun to watch. We all have a great time.
I hope everyone has a great weekend and safe travels if traveling.
It's great living in Auburn. It's even better if you're an Auburn football fan. Yesterday was the Auburn University football homecoming game which means . . . pancake breakfast. We had a great turnout and yummy pancakes and eggs. It was so nice being with Christian friends, many of whom have moved on and left Auburn.
Only a few weeks until Thanksgiving. I am much to be thankful for. Hope everyone has a great week.
Okay, my good friend and I were talking. She mentioned that I was conscientious. Well, that made me feel bad because I alway run late. I told her that I'm late to most everything except for getting to the church building. She immediately said "I said you were conscientious, I never said you were punctual." Well we had a big laugh and I told her that was definitely blog worthy.
Other blog worthy news: Craig and Paula came to Auburn for the weekend. They will get to go to the Auburn football game and tailgate.
The wedding date has been set: They plan to get married June 4, 2010.
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
Most mornings Walker wakes me up. I'm really not a morning person at all! Yesterday he woke me up, again and said "you're just pushing the envelope, pushing the envelope!" He gets up, has his morning time and goes to work plenty early enough to read the paper before worktime begins. I, being not-a-morning person, wake up and hurriedly shower, get ready and rush out the door. Some mornings I'm amazed that my hair can actually dry in 2 minutes :)
As I was trying to wake up in the shower, I was thinking, not something I do very early in the morning. There is a spiritual application to what Walker said. Do we try to push the envelope in things we do, places we go, friends we have, organizations that we belong to? Do we try to see how much we can get by with, or how little we can wear? Do we get as close to sin as possible? We should not try to be like worldly people but spiritual people. Do people know that we are Christians by our conduct?
