…to enter the drawing for the book Hope Lives. (and feel free to leave your comment on this post instead of the other one. i’ll still count you.)
I’m off to Bible study in a bit, then it’s lunch, Ava to the bus stop, Nina down for a nap, and then I’ll breathe for a moment, put everyone’s name on a slip of paper, and draw the winner.
I think I forgot to mention that the past two Wednesday nights have been very relaxing for me. Did I blog about Fully Engaged? It’s the 6-week course that engaged couples have to take before they can get married in our church. An older couple has been teaching it for years, and they’ve had some health problems and wanted a younger couple that could step in and teach when they can’t. Gabe and I were asked to do it, so the past 2 weeks, we sat in on the classes. I feel more than a little guilty about skipping out on the last 4 weeks of Cubbies, but Gabe is tired of me saying this, he feels this is definitely a ministry God has called us to, and that’s that. And while I sometimes struggle with submitting to my husband, there are times when it is SUCH a relief. Whew. I love Wednesdays now. And working with couples on the cusp of marriage is right up my alley.
Ran again this morning. For longer this time. I love talking to God while I run. It is the ONLY thing that motivates me to get my rump out of my warm bed and out into the cold morning air. Thank you, Lord, for running with me! I prayed for many of you, and I asked God for some pretty big things for my family and friends. He’s big, you know.
Okay, I do this every Thursday. Get up early, but then mess around, put off taking a shower, and rush around like a madwoman, trying not to be late for Bible study. Toodles!
