I want to weigh in for just a second and ask for your prayers tomorrow. Since we've landed, we've had absolutely no time to sit still! Talk about a total crash course into reality...we are so busy this week and weekend, it's a good thing we just went on vacation or we'd be exhausted!!
I'm going to give you a list of bullet points, because I have about 5 minutes to do this and not enough time to elaborate on much!
-Tomorrow I am speaking to Grace's MOPS (mothers of preschoolers) group, teaching a floral arranging demo. Should be fun, but lots of prep work on my end. Picked up the flowers today, beautiful, just have to plan my talk and write up a handout.
-Ironically, after my MOPS talk, Travis and I are meeting with an Infertility Specialist at my OB/GYN's office. We have peace about this...God has been showing us some things in this process and laying some truths on our hearts. We feel like this is a necessary appt. to get some answers we are seeking, but we have some reservations too and have had to really talk about what we're willing to do and what we're not. I will share more about this later, but for now, please pray for our appointment. I'm asking the Lord to help me trust Him with this next season and I'm choosing to praise Him regardless of what we learn. He is Sovereign over all this and we are simply wanting to go where He leads and walk in obedience and surrender to the best of our ability.
-I Have a great Bible Study tonight, talking about leadership and time management (of course!) I always leave very refreshed, but getting there every time is a total struggle!!
-We have a student ministry event all day Saturday, "Fiesta Dodgeball"...doesn't that sound like fun?? It actually is quite fun and hilarious to see the teams our students come up with and their crazy outfits! In honor of that, and the big news today, THE OFFICE IS BACK TONIGHT WITH AN ALL NEW EPISODE, I am posting the third installment of the Student Ministry Office videos for your enjoyment!! Too bad I'm too busy to watch the primetime start, but rest assured, I'll be watching it on tivo when I get home!!
-Oh, and just to top the weekend off, we're supposed to get rain, sleet, and snow tonight, tomorrow and Saturday...maybe 8 inches! Let me just tell you that we've already been searching for plane tickets and jobs back in Florida!! What were we thinking when we left?????
