Happy New Year to you!!! At least, Happy New Year, Part 2. Today is the beginning of the second part of this year. I, for one, can't believe where the time has gone! The calendar seems to just turn the pages on its own. But regardless, here's to a fresh start for the second half of the year, if the first half left your spiritual life some what wanting.
Today my co-worker's (and the main church secretary) daughter got married. I had the opportunity to work with Mrs. L in making appetizers and serving the food and drinks. It's always a blast working with Mrs. L and she makes some awesome food! (Those who know Mrs. L. should be vigorously nodding their head in agreement at that last statement:D) Although the day was long, it was so sweet to witness their vows. As Tiffany said her vows, she began to cry and Jeremy so sweetly and gently wiped away her tears. What a special ceremony! Now my feet are aching after being on them for over 6 hours, but that's ok. It's always so nice to partake in an opportunity to serve.
This week looks pretty clear but there is a chance of activity in it. I smile when I think I have *free time*, and then find out that God has a ministry opportunity awaiting me. So I say *free time* very loosely and am actually surprised when I spend an evening at home. I bet my mom is too. Often she'll say to me at church in jest, "Hi stranger, how are you?" But that's how it feels some times. We just smile understandingly and know we'll catch up eventually.
Have a blessed day in the House of God and don't forget: count your blessings and name them one by one!!!!!
