Sunday 9:55am & 6:00pm
Lessons urging us all to be more forward-oriented in our thinking towards serving God
How many people do you know with swine flu? I have learned of three in the past 24 hours. None at school yet but a teacher's daughter just found out she has it so the teacher left until next week. I really hope we don't get it and I feel so sorry for those who do have it.
I cannot believe it's time to go back. I feel like they have been home about two weeks. Heather and Christina only go three days a week but we just aren't ready to go back. I am going to be a teacher's aide for first grade but they only go Tuesdays an d Thursdays. It takes 35 -40 minutes to get there so I may as well hang around. Heather would love to attend the public school which is four doors from our house. There are seven kids from Embry Hills who go there but I feel Heather does better in small classes. Christina loves just going three days. We are planning on having two bible classes during the week after school because it should be pretty easy for those kids to walk down the hill. I remember when we moved in ten years ago I wanted to do this when the girls got in high school. Now I hope it will work out. We had one last year but I'm hoping we can have a larger group this year.
I hope everyone has a great start to the new school year.
It's that time of the year again. Heather and Christina gave each other their cards and gifts this morning. We are headed out for the day to movies, swimming at their grandmothers and eating out. Barry has classes this week so he won't be able to join us. I was trying to remember when we started this tradition. I only remember it was one year that Mark Roberts was here in a meeting. I was thinking ten but it may only be seven or eight. Anyway I'm hoping it is something they will hang onto long after I'm gone. Hope everyone has a great day. Tell a sister you love and appreciate them. I sure love and appreciate all of mine.
Things have been so quiet around here. The girls are at camp and although Barry works out of the house he has stayed busy in the basement. I have been going through cleaning out the girls things. Their dresser drawers but after I pulled out things like drawings, books and other things that had been stuffed in a hurry, there is much more room. I usually cook a huge meal the day they come home but we are staying in the area because Barry is preaching nearby on Sunday morning.
I took my Mom to the Braves game this week and we had so much fun. She is a big Braves fan but they were playing the Cubs(my team) She hadn't been in a long time but I plan to take her again soon.
In all the fun summer brings there is always the tug in the back of my mind of those around us who are dealing with heartache. I guess that is one of the wonderful things about pleonast. We can pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ who we will not meet until we get to heaven. To me this is the greatest part of pleonast.
