Friday Fun

It was a wonderful week despite being away from Skip for 5 days and 4 nights. He was able to really dig into his job, and work without distractions. Annie has had a hard time with her daddy being gone, but the other two are doing fine. I appreciate Skip so much more now. He normally does most of the cooking in the evenings, and I know the kids are reading for some Daddy meals.

Guess what? The house is showing at noon today. Please join me in prayer. We haven't had anyone look for three weeks. I am just so excited to have someone come and look. Everything looks great (the yard, the plants, etc.). I just know it will happen soon, and I will be starting my new life with Skip in Victoria.

I met last night with my neighborhood bunco group probably for the last time. It is such a great group of ladies. This is the first home we've lived in where we've really reached out and made good friends with our neighbors. I am going to make sure I continue to do this in Victoria when we move.

Annie has a Mother's Day Tea at school today. Annie told me to bring a kleenex. Since I was already crying when I was braiding her hair this morning and putting on her beautiful Easter dress, I think I better take a whole box. She is such a precious treasure to me. I just read Barb's blog this morning about her grandson Cameron, and I just lost it, praising God for my healthy babies. Please join me in lifting him up in prayer. I know what it is like having a sick child, and the uncertainty it can bring.

I am on my last week of homework for my Daniel study. I HAVE NEVER loved a study so much. I know I always say this, but YOU MUST DO THIS STUDY! I started to get a little teary eyed yesterday thinking how much I am going to miss my Thursday mornings with my sweet friends. I hope they continue meeting together when I'm gone. Every one of these ladies should be leading their own bible studies. There is so much wisdom and love in each one of them.

Since this will probably be my last post before Mother's Day, I want to wish all of you a Very Happy Mother's Day. I especially want to wish my mommy a VERY BLESSED DAY! I will get to see her in Victoria this weekend and go to church with her.

This is Skip's first weekend as the official Worship Pastor at Parkway Church. Yay!!!!! He is so excited! I am so excited for him, and for all that God will use him to accomplish at this awesome place. Isn't our God good? Yes, yes He is!

Praying about the house showing!
Sounds like you're doing go and having a good time even though you're hubbyless.

I'll be waiting to hear the good report of your Mothers Day and the service.

Susie, it's actually just before noon your time and I want you to know that I'm praying for your house to sell, sell, sell!

Also ~ This may sound strange, but I woke up thinking about Beth Moore's Daniel Bible Study. Thanks for letting us know how good it is!

P.S. Our neighborhood is just surrounded by smoke...our entire area is! There are wildfires blazing through Florida like crazy right now. The smoke is so thick that they're warning people not to go outside! Please pray for our area and for Florida to receive the rain it so desperately needs!

I really hope the showing went well, and that God will move you back with your man, pronto!

Have a great mother's day with your momma! I know you'll enjoy being with her at church.

It's as though I can just hear the joy in your voice Susie. I'm praying the house will sell very soon. This is an exciting time for all of you.
Have a very special Mothers' Day.

How did the house showing go? I'm sure Skip's first Sunday at the new church will go great. I can't wait to hear about it! Happy Mother's Day to you, too!

I hope the house showing went well. Praying they were very very interested.

Happy Mother's Day to you, too!

Happy Mother's Day!

Aw Susie, I've been so caught up in what's happening with Cameron, I didn't get over here in time to wish Skip a wonderful first weekend as the official Worship Pastor at your new church. Congratulations to him - I'm sure we'll be hearing all about it from you any time now and I have no doubt he did a wonderful job.

Cameron saw his doctor again today, he adjusted his insulin and we're still working on stabilizing him. Each day it gets just a little easier to accept this.

The miracle of discovering that his daycare mom is a diabetic and is able and willing to care for his special needs has been such a huge encouragement to us. Thank you so much for your kind words - it never ceases to amaze me how wonderful and caring my blogging friends, very real friends, are.
