I Serve an Awesome God!

This weekend we had Kirk Cameron as a special guest at our church. Now I know what people mean when they say "star-struck." Wow, I was near him so many times and I wouldn't even speak to him. I'm so dumb. Anyway, I have never seen my church so full of energy. I got to church about 7:45 that morning because of some kid's cove responsibilities and I could already feel that something amazing was going to happen. There has never been so many people in our church. People were sitting in the church around 8:30 to get good seats. We filled the auditorium, the overflow room and all of the hallways with tvs in them had rows and rows of chairs so people could watch him on tv.

We got the final count today and the results are in....We had 5050 people in attendance and 300 people got saved!!! I am so excited. I didn't grow up in a church where this happened....EVER. I am so thankful to serve a God who is real and to serve in a church who cares about souls!

Kirk's message is on our church's website as a podcast so check it out.

Sorry Ya'll

I didn't do it. All fo that for nothing. I'm so sorry but I decided to get more blonde highlights. Several reasons went into this decision all of which are probably silly to everyone so I won't bore you with the details. Anyway, just wanted to give you an update. If I get a picture i will post it.

Please Vote!

Thursday I have a hair appt for some color and a cut. I really wanted to go drastically different with the color but Doug is having some reservations about just plain brown like I want. He thinks I will either not like it or be bored with it soon. He thinks that maybe I should go brown with blonde streaks in the top or more blonde like I used to be. So here are a couple of pics of what I could possibly look like with the different styles I'm contemplating.

The brown looks a little red but I've been red before so that's out of the running. I need your help so let me know what you like. Thanks.

Exciting Night at Ballet!

Kalli went to her usual night of ballet. Tonight she got to wear her PJ's and loved it. She wore her princess nightgown and her robe. I thought she would ditch the robe once she got into class but I guess I forgot to tell her to do that. So she wore the thing the whole time. Oh well. She looked cute anyway.

After class Kalli's dance teacher (who is WONDERFUL!) said she thinks Kalli is bored in this class and suggests she move up to a more advanced class! For some reason that makes me so proud of her. She'll have a bit of catching up to do but Mrs. Amy doesn't think that will be a big problem. So, Opal Combo class here we come! We'll be going 2 hours earlier which I think will make it easier for me to hit the gym on Mondays. (Gotta get back in the swing of things with that)

Let The Games Begin...

So, last week was very busy. We had our children's choir performance tonight at church and this is the first year that I was involved. I loved it. Those kids worked so hard and it paid off. About 20 people raised their hand to accept Jesus as their Savior! I hope those kids realize that they may have helped change someone's life by the words they sing. Amazing..... God is so good.

So, with the concert behind us we will press on through the busy Christmas season. This week is Kalli's last week of ballet for a few weeks so I'm looking forward to a break from that. Tuesday night I'm cooking dinner for a friend who just had a baby. Wednesday is cheerleading practice, drama practice and kids choir party (after work). Thursday is work all day. Friday is work 1/2 day and then there are about 5 events that we've been invited to but I'm only going to 1. Saturday, Doug's work Christmas Party. Sunday, Spirit of Christmas service at church....KIRK CAMERON! How cool is that?

Then.... the following week is actually busier. But I'm not going to think about that now. At least this is all fun stuff to do so no complaining. I am looking forward to getting on that plane on Christmas Eve. That's when we can finally relax. Only 17 days to go.
