And apparently now is the season for me to be BUSY! I’ve hardly had any time at all to sit at the computer and when I did, it was only for 10 minutes or so.
Our rummage sale this weekend went well. We raised a little more than half of what we need to send all of the kids to camp. A WONDERFUL thing our church does is raise the money collectively to send the kids to camp. Camp is expensive and they want to make sure that everyone can go. They started a rummage sale program years ago to raise money and it’s a huge fundraiser for our church. We’re just past the 75% mark in funds.
Saturday was an interesting day as we sat and listened to a “modern” try and explain “postmodernism” to a very mixed crowd. You had several on both ends of the spectrum and then a few who fell towards the middle. I’m not sure that I agree fully with his presentation that the new “emergent” face will be the one set way that we focus on ministry to the postmodern generation and it’s such a hard concept to grasp since it’s more of a philosophy than anything else. I think the absolute most important thing that everyone needs to remember is that no matter what angle you come at it from, the message is still going to be the same – PEOPLE STILL NEED JESUS!
Sunday was Sunday. It’s always a busy day for us. It was a quiet afternoon for Seth and I at home. I realized that for a while at least, I can nap on Sundays with the windows open! Our neighborhood clears out since Elijah & his best friend from next door are both on the same team and they practice that afternoon. We went on a prayer walk for church on Sunday night – our kids farmed out to walk with others and Chip and I were able to walk and pray and dream together. It was really, really nice.
Yesterday, we went down to the zoo in St. Louis. We picnicked in Forest Park and then went and looked at all the animals. It was a lot of fun and Seth is still talking about the monkeys. We like to go in April when the weather is cooler – only it was 100 degrees yesterday! Kind of defeated the purpose of going in April instead of Auguest. We had a great time and then went down to the Old Spaghetti Factory for dinner. Love their Pasta a la Homer. YUM-O!
Today has been slightly slower and then tomorrow it picks right back up again. Chip has an appointment that will take a good part of the day and then he’s busy again pretty much all day on Thursday (National Day of Prayer and some other stuff).
And the biggest news – Seth turns TWO tomorrow! That just doesn’t seem like it’s possible! I’ll be back with a years worth of pictures tomorrow.
