I didn't blog yesterday because it was a crazy busy day! We had church as normal and it's my month to teach the Teen Girls Sunday School (we've named it HEART). We are currently working through Max Lucado's book "Every Day Deserves a Chance!" Teen Edition. It is a great, but challenging, book! Yesterday we talked about peace for stressed out days. It was a great reminder that God will supply everything we need on a daily basis and breaking down our days into manageable parts. Today I needed that reminder! Monday's are the worst. When we try to cram a lot of family time into two days, it wears us all out! I needed to get through each hour, trying to stay patient and be a good mom and teacher. I made it through! God is good!
After church Andy is coaching Little League Soccer for the church from 2:00-4:00 pm. Since church doesn't usually get done until 12:30ish (and yesterday it was 12:50 pm), it's a mad rush to get home, get lunch and get back out the door. While Andy is coaching, Daniel is napping and I am trying to get ready for the school week. The kids are having a great time playing soccer and there are almost 20 kids in the older group (8-10's)! I think it's the largest group we've had in a while. Andy is a great coach is really trying to teach them the basics of soccer.
To make things even more crazy for a Sunday we were invited to attend the wedding of Daniel and Marisol Ramos. That was at 5:00 pm. It was a great wedding. They are a couple that have been attending our church for a few years. Daniel started attending Kids Club with his two children when I was teaching the 5 & 6 year-olds. He would sit in with his kids and listen to the lessons being taught. Soon he started attending church and a while later Marisol started attending. They both have come to know the Lord and even separated because they knew they were not setting a Godly example for their children. It was great to see them walking in obedience to God's Word as they took their vows. They were so happy! It was beautiful. Please pray for them as they begin their new lives together.
By the time we got home (8:00 pm) it was bedtime and I still had much to do in preparing for school. It proved to be a late night! One of these days life will slow down, right?
