It's soooo hot outside

Well, we went straight from winter weather (rain) to middle of August type summer...HOT!  It's supposed to be over 100 today and tomorrow!  I work inside so it's nice and cool but when I go outside it's like walking into a furnace!  We got solar rings to put on the pool to heat the water...just in time for us to not need them :).  The littles have been enjoying the pool for a week or so.  I think today may be the 1st time I take a dip in it.

VBS is officially over for another year.  It was just awesome.  The kids are so cute as they come through the line for their dinner.  I think this is my favorite activity that I do on the Fellowship Committee.

I've decided to start listing things I'm grateful least 5 a day.

1.  Being saved by God-how wonderful it is to know that I am a Princess of the most high King!
2.  My relationsip with Jesus-not where it should be but growing
3.  My husband-not always easy but I love him still
4.  My kids-ALL 4 of them (miss you Colton)
5.  My grandkids-we now have 8!

I'm here again

Well, I'm here again.  This makes 2 days in a row.  Definitely some sort of record for me! 

We are having Vacation Bible School every evening this week.  I'm in charge of the evening meals.  It is sooo much fun!  I have wonderful helpers, including my awesome in-laws...thanks mom and dad!  Meals are easy but we try to do healthy too.  Not so sure nachos and corn dogs are the healthiest things to have but we include veggies and fruit too so the squirts get some good stuff.  Tonight it's nachos and fruit.  Tomorrow night we will order pizza...yummy and then we can say another successful week!

I'm not even going to apologize or explain why I've been gone for so long...I'm back though.  I've been on a long hard road and I'm still on it but feel I need to start blogging again.  Life goes on whether we want it to sometimes or not!

We have added 2 new grandson's to our lives...that makes 5 granddaughters and 3 grandsons now!  I sure hope the kids stop for a while!  I love my grands but "8 is enough"...

I lost a very dear friend to breast cancer recently.  I never met her in person but look forward to doing so in Heaven someday.  She will be missed here on earth...enjoy Heaven JanM!!!

Not much else I want to say right now but found this wonderful quote I wanted to share:

Rest is an act of trust. It says, "I'm not the One who keeps the world running. I am not God."

Is that awesome or what...that's where I am right now...resting and trusting...
