Date Night & Recital

Finally a DATE NIGHT.
We went to the movies it was fun to just get away.
I am late posting this because in a few short days it will be date night again, but it just may be at a baseball game.
(traveling team Matt is on. Pictures to come)

Matthew on Sunday at his annual piano recital. It did perfect.His fingers are so light I don't think they even touched the keys. We are very proud of him.

Looks like the date night was fun...I am thinking that is exactly what we need.

I have been praying for you this morning.
Good news - all girls (except for one) signed in this week even though some had tough weeks (the second week is always the hardest- especially with the holdiay). That is awesome...THAT IS PRAISE WORTHY.

Tip for the day - If you drink half your body weight in water a day - the experts say your appetite will decrease dramatically. (Are ya thinking that's a lot of water =) Me too!!!)

Prayer for you today, "Lord, Father, Creator, Sustainer, Joy-Giver, Prince of Peace, King of Kings I come before you today lifting up my dear sisters in Christ: Nicole, Holly, Shannon, Haylee, Kassie, Amber, Becky, Belinda, Jennifer, Natalie, Jackie, Amy, Adrian, Jamie and myself. I ask today Lord God that you help us walk this walk and fight the good fight. Help me to offer my body, my choices up to you as a living sacrifice. I have exhausted all the possiblities for changing this situation in my life, and I AM POWERLESS. All things, all diets, all the will-power in the world will not accomplish my goal, but will YOU ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE. I humble myself before you Lord, and YOU WILL LIFT ME UP on wings like eagles. You will lift me up out of this slimy pit, out of the mud and mire. You will set my feet on a rock and give me a firm place to stand. You will put a NEW SONG in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God
(anybody wanting a new song...I do)
I have a great high Priest Who has gone though the heavens: Jesus. I hold firmly to the faith and profess that My High Priest is able to sympathize with my weaknesses. I approach your Throne of grace with confidence so that I may receive mercy and find grace in my time of need. Help me Jesus. In the face of discouragement, disappointment, frustration, and dispair I know YOU GOD ARE MIGHTY TO SAVE. You are my rock, a refuge where no enemy can reach me. You are a fortress where I cannot be shaken. Greater is He that is in me than He that is in this world.
Father I believe you have heard our cries, our groanings, our prayers for you this week. You will not leave us or forsake us. You will bring us out from under this yoke of bondage and free me from being a slave to temptation and frustration,. You have redeemed Nicole, Holly, Shannon, Haylee, Kassie, Amber, Becky, Belinda, Jennifer, Natalie, Jackie, Amy, Adrian, Jamie and me. You have transferred us from the darkness of bondage into the Kingdom of Light where love, joy, peace, righteousness, and grace abound towards us. In your sweet Son's name we pray. Amen!
See you next Monday!

Belinda...I plan on volunteering this summer I just haven't had time to fill out all the forms. But when school is out, I'll get on that. It's just so busy this time of year. We had a SHAC committee meeting and they all agreed to have you back next year if you will come and for a longer period of time. All of the evaluations were good. I have them ready to mail to you.
