and lots of yummy salsa went into our tummies as the day went along. .
you know. .
We did a little experimenting on our original flavor. .
and renamed it the "twist." Our other 3 favorites made their yearly comeback on the agenda!
We survived a prank pulled by my husband. .the jokester!!
Lisa was chopping onions and had a mountain of them piled up on the cutting board.
While we weren't looking, Jeremy snuck this realistic plastic cockroach into the pile. .
I was in the process of asking him why he was just standing around smiling at us. .
about the same time Lisa busted into hysterics!!
We survived the change out of computers. .
from our very ooooollllddd one that completely crashed a couple weeks ago. .
to a new one (with our old information since my computer whiz BIL repaired the old one and transferred the info over to the new!). .
outfit with Windows 8. .
which is a little bit tricky. .
and equally as tricky to me as the new windows mail system is!!
But. .we celebrated the set up completion with pedicures. .
This is ONE of the reasons I am enjoying this little girl sooo much!!
We continue to survive our four kids and everything they are about. .
Many days it feels much like I would expect the inside of an ant den to feel. .
like there are many little critters bustling about. .
each doing their thing. .
trying to coincide with everyone else's "thing". .
and making a lot of commotion while they go about it!!
I'm not sure how the queen bee goes about it. .
but I have not yet mastered the art of listening to all the "things"
while trying to manage all of the "things and their things!"
Do you see what I have to work with???
Do I even stand a chance??
In all honesty, I am looking forward to a trip to Dallas this afternoon until the weekend. .
to attend a conference there designed for youth pastors, small group leaders, and other volunteer postitions within the church. .
I am excited for the chance to be taught HOW to lead. .
and expect to be able to improve my effectiveness as both a leader of people. .
and a wife and mom!!
The theme is. .
Surrender: leading people to put others before self, and Christ above all!
And I believe the most important aspect of being a good leader. .
is to practice what you preach!!
So please, if you have a minute. .
prayers for safe travel. .
for Godly fellowship. .
for Godly wisdom to be imparted into our hearts and minds. .
and for a convicted and changed heart. .
so that I can TRULY carry out the ministry that God has given. .
to ME!! (2 Timothy 4:5)
Wishing you all a safe and blessed week. .
Thanks so much for stopping by!
