Have you ever had someone break a promise that they made to you?
I have, and it's not a fun feeling...
Have you ever broken a promise to yourself?
I have, and I don't like that either!
After I found that I had cancer, I promised myself to try to find
more joy in make the best of every
do something really enjoyable every week.
However, lately I haven't been doing it. I am letting the cares
of life wear me down a bit, and make me lose my focus.
I am going to try and remedy that though--I am going to recommit to
making the time to do enjoyable things, and not let the
hard things in life rob me of my joy!
I am going to try and count my blessings more often!
But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee.
Psalm 5:11

Wow, it sure has been busy around here!
Last week was VBS week at our church, and Phil & I had the 4 & 5 year old class...
it kept us hopping!
We decorated our room for the "Investigation Destination" theme of the week

We were looking for clues to find the True King
One of my new friends was helping me out by dressing like a king :)
We had lesson time, snack time, games and crafts

The children we had were just adorable, and they were so smart!
They really learned and knew a lot!

And, they were so funny! I laughed all week!
Our Pastor's wife was sneaking to wear Spy Guy's glasses...

Spy Guy was a big hit with the children!

My daughter had the opportunity to do a chalk art for the kids,
our Pastor did the preaching.
Brad came and help us out, the kids loved him!
The pretty lady in the blue was also helping us in our class,
it was great to work with her and get to know her better :)
Especially the little girls! ;)
What a privilege to teach children about Jesus!
I am still praying for the children in my class, that they will
grow up to follow the Lord.
But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.
Matt. 19:14

Independence Day

Happy 4th of JULY!
Today is Independence Day here in the USA.
Each year when we celebrate this holiday,
I always hope that America will turn back to God...
but it hasn't happened yet.
Maybe next year?
This year I am sending up prayers for America to fall to her knees
and worship the One who made this nation possible...
He was the reason that this nation was great....
and now we are abandoning Him and His Ways.
As you celebrate the freedom we enjoy in this country today,
please take a moment to pray for God to convict our country and
for her to turn to Him once again....
Happy Independence Day
