Ok, picture this... A box of light bulbs comes in, I open it and find...... You guessed it bubbles. They are such fun to pop soooooo I give some to Reagan and he is enjoying the popping sound as he steps on each bubble one at a time with his little two year old foot when all of the sudden here comes Megs, "BUBBLES!!!!!" she exclaims and proceeds to pop some of Reagan's so I offer her another piece of bubble wrap and lo and behold Lori comes in "I want the the bubbles!!!" and Her and Meagan ensue an altercation. Lorie's receipt gets wrinkled by now everyone wants a piece and everyone is laughing. Carolyn F. wants nothing to do with the whole thing and she hightails it out of the room. Funny? Yes. You have to imagine at this point because I have not become disciplined enough to bring my camera to work.......yet, but I will and when I do look out. More to come


I work with a very dynamic group of people. They always seem to know just what they are going to say and with such eloquence. Thank God for spell check. Any way I love these people. They love god and are not afraid to show it. I have a hard time coming out of my shell. It is safe in here. I find that when I do get brave enough to come out I tend to see my flaws. If I am forced to interact someone may see inside my world and I feel like I must protect. With these people I probably tell too much. My children are my main topic because they are my life, well them and my Husband. Don't get me wrong I am a Jesus Freak! If it weren't for him I would be stuck in a bar somewhere in Vermont every night after work like most of the people I knew and grew up with. I can not believe that is a way of life for some. anyway I am grateful for all of my team mates. I do like working in this atmosphere and it is challenging. It is also fun. I am starting to see how PB thinks(scary) and I am starting to see the humanity i have been looking for. He has such a heart for this church family and all the things that are going on will come to fruition when the time is right (Gods Time). This city will see the great and awesome wonders God Is doing here and will continue to do throughout this city using the ROCK as a part of the body of Christ.

Paint Anyone?

Well here I go again, Painting. Yes the paint matches. I can not tell you What I painted or where I painted. because it will give away the secret for Sunday. I can Only say the wall is painted and ready for Sunday. It is going to be something!!!. Way to go Pastor B. I am truly touched by this act of selflessness and appreciate the true compassion you displayed and I believe this is it. This is going to be the thing that makes people go HMMMM.

Getting up late

Good morning everyone. Yes I over slept this morning. I do that at least once a week. Not that I am late but it messes up the whole morning. When I realize in my sleepy haze that it's actually 6:30 I know there is no way I can get thing one and thing two up and out in 15min, Mac is good he has a whole 20min. I used to literally drag them off of their beds walk them to the bathroom and physically dress them including washing faces and combing hair and telling them on the way to the bus stop "just get breakfast at school!" This as you can imagine is very traumatic for my children and me. I have decided if I get up late I can no longer punish them because of my tardiness. I will have to take them to school. No this is not pleasant either but at least My children had breakfast with me and I did not lose it because they were not being fast enough(because they are technically still asleep.)
God thank you for my new found patients and I am sure my kids thank you too. I guess I realized it is just not worth it to get so upset when your cheese gets moved. Let go and let God.

Another Climb

As you may all be aware I do not like heights. Monday I was informed one of my teammates would need help in the area of scaffolding. Lights in the sanctuary This time it's the stage lights. That was Monday today is Wednesday.
Thank the Lord Jesus for Jim and Carolyn. I do not know how this would have been completed. As I was lugging in the 400 pieces(exaggeration) of scaffold Jim had a break and offered help which I immediately accepted. He helped put it together stabilize and even changed bulbs with Carolyn. Who is Jim you say? He is an Angel sent by God for me. I only had to climb one time and that was because he needed a pair of pliers. Carolyn and Jim make an awesome team. As the scaffolding grew taller and taller stretching to the heavens I ( not even on the apparatus) am sweating profusely. I am not sure why it frightens me so But my mind always thinks the worst and I visualized them falling and all that may need to be done to help after. Sick I know. My stomach was in knots until they were down and safe on the ground again. After lunch we have to do some more. HELP!!!!!!
