He is Risen!!!
Hope you all are enjoying celebrating Jesus' resurrection!! How thankful I am that He didn't stay in that tomb!!
What a fun and crazy busy week I had. I am so happy to have my brother and his family here for Easter, minus my nephew :( I am loving spending time with them! My niece was offered a scholarship for softball at OBU this week! How fun it will be to have her close to us for college!!! I am praying she says YES!
Here's my week:
Sunday was a great day!!
It had the potential of going in the other direction because it started out with the power still being out at the church. The tornadoes on Thursday night caused this tree to fall on the power lines to our church.
There are still lots of people without power in LR, so they didn't get to us before Sunday. But the morning could not have gone better!
I set up the K-5th grades outside on the patio and once they were all there, we took them up to the basketball courts for their lesson. The day was beautiful and they loved being outside!
And the service was one of the best ever...even without a sound system or lights!!
So wonderful when God shows up like that!
I am on the Fine Arts council at school and we are having an appreciation lunch for our fine arts teachers Wednesday. this is our gift to the teachers! Love these tumblers! The cross is our Fine Arts logo.
We are also selling them as a fundraisers....so I have 145 of these in my dining room at the moment.
MORE storms tonight!!!
This turned into more tornadoes....ugh!!
I am really getting tired of this.
found out yesterday afternoon that the location for our Fine Arts luncheon fell through. It need to be a place close to the school (they were coming on their lunch hour), so I agreed to have the lunch at my house. The food was catered so all I had to do was host 25 teachers and FA council members. It really turned out nice!!
Kind of funny seeing a school bus in my driveway!!
My brother came in with his family and we took our kids to see OBU today. Kayley was offered a position on the softball team for the fall!!! Despite all the rain, it was a great day!
we had a wonderful Good Friday Service tonight.
Our worship pastor had set up different stations to remember what Christ had done for us.
Here we remembered where Christ said he would take our sins/burdens as far as the deepest ocean. The rocks represented our burdens and as we prayed we dropped them in the water.
Here we wrote names of friends/family members or areas of little rock that needed to know Christ's redeeming love and place them on this wall of rememberance.
What a special night.
Jason came home today with his best friend. I love having a full house...even if they are all asleep!!!
And a full table is even better!!
I love having my brother and his family here!!
I am praying there will be many more times if Kayley comes to OBU!!!!
So how was your week?!!!
