XBOX Wife Ten Things Tuesday

  1. This morning I am tired!! "You're thankful about that," you ask? Yes! I'm tired because I got home late and got in bed late because we had an awesome Children's Ministry Committee meeting at our church last night.
  2. This means that our church is growing ~ a 40% increase in children in over the last 5 years!
  3. Some of my closest friends serve on the same committee, and it's such a blessing to be doing this together.
  4. I am thrilled about a specific task of which I'll be organizing...kids for missions!
  5. As I look outside, the thunderstorms rolling in are evident. I love thunderstorms!
  6. I have things to occupy my time all day long today, reminding me that I have a sweet family of whom to take care. Washing their dirty laundry is just one of the ways I can let them know how much I love them! :)
  7. There is laundry to do! "WHAT?" You ask this question with force and in an "are-you-crazy" voice. Yes, I am thankful for that laundry! It means that we have enough clothing to get us through more than a day or two. I'll admit...this is one that I have to find reasons to be thankful.
  8. I have a sticker right smack dab in the bottom center of my foot! I KNOW...it HURTS! But it also reminds me that my toes are not tingling today. Maybe I'll share the rest of that story on another day.
  9. In an hour or so, I get to spend some quality time with one of my greatest friends Lurch-Lady! :)
  10. I am so thankful for all of you that are reading this! Ten years ago, I would have never imagined all the possibilities that the world wide web has allowed!
What are YOU thankful for today?

That's awesome about the children's ministry growth of your church. What a calling to work with the wee-ones. When I see the little ones at school, I am constantly reminded of birth control in the human form of kindergarteners...lol!! God makes us all with Him in mind, however different levels of patience....hence I teach 5th graders. They lose less teeth=)

Years ago, I was a Children's Pastor. That is incredible growth-looks like your doing the right things!

Mzzterry said...

Shana said...

I am so excited about the Children's Ministry at your church! I am also on our Children's Ministry and it was so great to read your "thanful" post about it. Sometimes I get frustrated with finding teachers, the right curriculum, etc, and it is so nice to hear your being upbeat. Between you and Jen- you give me hope!

On another note, I got your post about the "tipping" post that you had. I am certainly going to have to check that out. Looks like I have lots of reading and catching up on your blog.

I absolutely love your list today. You have a way of making the simple things into the greatest things -- and I really dig that and admire it! :) I hope that you share the sticker story sometime too -- especially since I have had tingling in my toes too and wonder if you and I have endured the same thing...

Have a great day. :)

Rosheeda said...
