Java

Yesterday when Justin and I got home from church, we saw that our neighbor was down in the creek in his back yard burning some brush.  We saw that Buttercup was out playing and Java (has now learned to jump up at the kitchen window and look outside) spotted her from the kitchen so we let her outside and decided to stay in the kitchen to watch them play.  We didn’t think she would notice Roy in the creek but we were very wrong.  She and Buttercup went zooming to the creek.  Roy said that Java went over the steepest part of the bank and then went for the water.  It was a good time.  The dogs love playing with each other. Java loved the water (she used to be terrified of it).  She even brought Justin a 6 foot branch from the water.  I can’t wait til we can get our part of the backyard to look like Roy’s so Java can play more.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Ok, so I finished the book last night. I must say I did not like the way it ended. Well, the very end was good but just at the last chapter or two I was like “no!” Thanks Stacey for letting me borrow it so long.  Now I’m ready for the next one hehe.  I hope he hurries up.

Yesterday Justin and I were invited to our friends’ Jack and Cary’s house for supper.  They grilled turkey and regular burgers.  mmmmm! We had a great time! It was the first time in forever we had an evening out as couples.  Jack’s friend Will was there too. He is cool! We all just sat and talked and the time went by quickly.  Too bad we are all old haha. We were ready for bed by 9:30pm.  Here’s to doing it again sometime 🙂

Church Pagers

Our church has agreed (at our last Business Conference) to purchasing a pager system for our nursery.  This would allow each set of parents to drop off a kid and take a pager to the sanctuary.  If someone in the nursery needs help from the parents they can just page them without disturbing the service.  I think it’s a great idea.  I’m hoping they will purchase enough pagers to do the childrens’ church group too. That would be excellent leverage against the children. hehehe hahaha  Oh and in order to keep the pagers from disappearing…parents will use the pagers in order to pick up their children.  No pager, no child 😉 haha Well sorta, I know some would love to leave their child.  It would replace the number system we have now.   What do you guys think?  Good idea? or Bad idea?

Childrens’ Church


2006
03.14

This past Sunday was my Sunday to teach Childrens’ Church. Since St. Patrick’s Day is coming up this week, I decided to teach about that. The lesson went better than I thought. The kids were actually excited about it. (Thanks to my mom and Kelly for giving me the idea and book to use) First I had them color a white sheet of paper green (to take some time). As they did that I talked to them about St. Patrick’s Day and what they remembered about it. Then I pulled out heart stencils and had them trace three of those and a stem. Then I showed them how it made a shamrock and had them cut them out and glue them together on another sheet of paper. Then we discussed the Trinity and labeled each heart as “Father”, “Son”, or “Holy Spirit”. They were so excited. Then I asked them what they remembered about the front of a Lucky Charms box. Then they remembered the rainbow and I asked them who made the rainbow and what it signified. Then I told them how St. Patrick was a Christian and loved to tell people in Ireland about Jesus. I was able to find a picture for them to color too that had a rainbow and a pot at the end of it. Instead of the pot having gold in it, it was labeled “God’s promises.” The little poem under it said “God made the rainbow; It’s beauty to hold. His Promise of Life, not pieces of gold.” I just thought it was awesome how it completed the lesson. The kids were so excited and I heard one say “Wow, I would never have known that if I didn’t come today”. It was a great day and a great lesson! God is in everything!

I just read in the headlines this morning that Christopher Reeve’s wife passed away last night from lung cancer. I’m in shock. Their poor kids! I think I vaguely remember her telling everyone she had cancer but wow. She was so pretty. What a tough couple! She said she had never smoked either. This cancer stuff is getting more and more scary and common for my comfort. Rest in Peace Mr. and Mrs. Superman.
