And this week will be another busy but fun week.
Last week we had VBS at our church. It started out really low but each day we had more kids and the last night we had more than we had in years. We also were excited about the outcome and the positive responses we received this year. To top it off we had our Annual Community Wide Pig Out on Saturday. There again we had more from the community come then we ever had and had very positive responses from them. This year too the people from church reached out more to the community then what they had in past. Both were preceded by much prayer by our church members preceding Bible School and the Pig Out and we attribute the success to the prayers of the people. We really needed that encouragement as our church has had a very rough year. Loosing 3 pastors, having several active members die, others leaving the church and a robbery, plus someone stealing money from the church and from the elderly. We needed something good to happen to turn us around. Several from the Pig Out and VBS were in church Sunday. We thank God for that. We hope to see them again!
This week my sister and brother-law and their 2 daughters and families are camping near here so we'll get to see them off and on. The one daughter is just here with her 2 little boys as her husband had to get ready for his students. Classes start middle of Aug. But Michelle and the boys are here. he weather would be warmer for them. As the 4 little ones are all going to want to go down to the lake and swim. Well they can at least play in the sand. Lake Michigan's waters are 20 degrees cooler then normal this year they say. That's pretty cold.
Now about stitching. I stitched a little on Mickey Mouse, then went to His Eye is On the Sparrow, and now I'm stitching more on Strengthen Me. I'd like to have it done by Sept. 22 as it's in memory of my dad, and that will be 1st anniversary of his moving to heaven. Phil. 4:13 was his favorite verse. By the way, the word hens, is actually end of strengthens, I just haven't stitched the first few letters yet.
Thank you for reading my blog and leaving comments. I really appreciate them. Until next time.....Happy Stitching!
