My husband teaches a Sunday school class for married adults. It is incredible the way God is using each of the families and how God has brought each one in our class. Clay is just an incredible teacher and has such a way of allowing the Spirit to freely reign in there and is not intimidated at all by those that speak up in agreement or not! It is such a free class!! I love it and I love the people that the Lord has allowed us to get to know!
My church's youth program and children is just exploding! We now have both a Director of Children's Ministries and a Youth Pastor in place and it is awesome!! Ronda does an incredible job and Chris is so impressive. They both are so thoughtful and prayerful. I have never met more organized people that are truly seeking the Lord for the good of others completely!! I love it and want to help in any way I can!! My kids love it and even Tucker is inviting kids to the youth group! The fight to get the kids to church that was creeping in is slowly diminishing and enthusiasm has been replaced!! I love it!
I have been asked to help out with some women stuff at the church. I cant wait until we really get rolling with that! It is exciting to see the team God is placing together! I think our first real togetherness outing will be to see Beth Moore in St. Louis! I cant wait! After Spring Break I am gonna head out to the BCH and teach a short 6 week study to the girls. It is an honor to get to be part of their lives for a short time. I am hoping to make some neat connections and really pour into their lives. It will be such a blessing!
Tucker had his Boys vs. Girls Bash on Saturday night for his 12th birthday! It was a complete blast and great exercise too! I love those kids!! I have posted some pictures on my Facebook of the night!! I will tag the photos soon!
The event on Friday in Huntingdon, Tn. was AWESOME!!!! God was preciously there and so very, very present!!! This was the event that I received no less than 15 to 20 cards and emails telling me and asking me how they can pray for me and for the event!!! The leader, Mrs. Lois, was most humble and appreciative of her helpers. Constantly making it known that none could have happened without them!!! I didn't even know she was the preacher's wife of this mega church until just a few days before!! It was not about her or me or anything other than ministering to the ladies coming and making the Lord feel so welcomed and honored!!! I am not part of many things run like that!!! A complete honor for me!! Pictures on Facebook for that night too!
I like this season. I like it most because I just seem to wake up, spend time with Him, and not hold tightly to what I want things to turn out as!! Just kind of keeping my palms up and asking Him to ready me for the day!!! Jesus Calling said this morning, "A life lived close to me is not complicated or cluttered. When your focus is on My Presence, many things that once troubled you lose their power over you." I love it and am thankfully living that right now!! Nothing I have done has made things the way they are right now. It is a beautiful season and I am thankful to notice it and enjoy it!!! Why - because of Him!! Seasons will change, but I pray I can still see His Beauty always!!! I love you Father - I am off to work!!
