Highlights from December 1-9, 2006

Here’s the BEST of my last week . . .

Friday, Dec 1 – Turned in all finals for school.

I received an A for the Pastoral Understanding of Women class. I loved that class, the classmates and teacher. I haven’t heard about my grade for the Discovering Your Ministry Potential class. However, it’s a pass/fail and I’m sure I passed.

Saturday – Helped set-up for and played at CNC’s annual women’s Christmas Party. What a blast! Legal stealing, legal food (no calories you know), and lots of laughter. 38 women joined us that night. Lovely food – we need some of those recipes for the next cookbook.

Sunday – The nieces and I wrote, produced and performed a lovely show for the “rents” return. I played Go Tell it on the Mountain on the piano (right hand only) and was accompanied by S who sang and K who played her violin. I’ve always wanted to do something like that! We plan on having another show at Christmas. This time I hope to play a song with both hands.

Monday – Watched Akeelah and the Bee. Very motivational. Good acting. If you haven’t seen this –DO! Thanks to CR for letting me borrow the DVD.

Tuesday – Saw The Polar Express at the Imax with three friends from church. Not just anyone could get in that night! Channel 10 sponsored a coat drive. The admission was a child’s coat. Thanks JH for letting me know about this. The 3-D movie was truly magical on that big screen.

Wednesday – Drove around looking at Christmas lights with my sista’s familia. So far the best lights are on Agena off Huntsman in Rosemont. Practically the whole court is lit up. Thanks again to JH for this info. Anyone know of a must-see house or street?

Thursday – Dinner and an Advent worship time with the dear I family. Dinner was a sausage casserole topped with croutons. Crunchy tastiness. I loved hearing M and S read and explain how prophecy is a part of our Advent preparation. Their focus wasn’t just on learning. It is about preparing our hearts for Christ.

CNC’s mommies group debuted today. I was able to spend some time with these lovely ladies and their lovely babies. It is a support group for mom’s with nursery age children. It was sooo precious to see them crawling, talking, and sleeping – the babies not the mommies. If you want inforamtion, call me, the office, or RW.

Friday – Found some winter clothes, lost more weight, and spent a NICE evening with my sista. We are involved in a project that will impact me and you, the readers. BUT, I’m not telling now!!

Oh yes – I also had the privilege of attending my nieces’ (K and S) award ceremony at school. Both received awards – ‘Natch! (I hope that didn’t come off as too braggish.)

Saturday – Christmas tree chopping is slated for this afternoon. It’s a bit drizzly so we’ll have to see if that’s still a go.

I am blessed!

    Glorious new site – sista done good. Hope you have fun in your new “digs” and I know all of us look forward to future posts. Hope you were able to go tree chopping – I’m doing the decorating thing as we speak, with lots of assistance from my little furries.
    Happy Saturday!

    Nice new site…I have a wordpress site, but have done nothing with it. I couldn’t figure out how to manuever around the template as well and so decided to decide later what to do. I would like to keep some of the extras that I have added lately. Did you have to pay for the features you changed?

    Catlady, yes I did go tree chopping in the rain with my “two” families. It was a lot of fun. The last time I was part of a Christmas tree chopping event was in my early 20’s when I took the kiddos I regularly babysat up to Apple Hill to get a tree.

    Thank you, Lynette. Sista does a nice job. One reason I wanted to chnage is becasue wordpress will let me attach pdf files. That way I can put notices on this site from women’s ministries.

    Theresa, I think wordpress is not as easy to navigate as blogger. But I will learn it – I am determined. Nope, I did not have to pay anything. I want to use a free site for as long as I can. 🙂

    Keziah, thank you for your kind words. I was visiting your site the other day. I forgot how much encouragmnet I get from reading your blog.
