We had a great baptism service yesterday with 5 people getting baptized. God has really been moving over the past few months!
We went out to eat Sunday after church at a local diner that has a buffet. B1 came back from getting dessert and had a strange look on his face. He pulled a piece of fatback from his bowl of strawberry shortcake and put it in his mouth. “I saw a guy get some and I thought it was some kind of cinnamon stick.” The fatback was in a small bowl beside the desserts. He said it tasted like bacon. I don’t think he’ll get it again.
Saturday we went to a war show? I guess that is how you could explain it. The had some cannons and people dressed in army attire from the Civil War, WWI, WWII, Vietnam and current uniforms. When we pulled up B3 exclaimed, “Look at that bomb shooter!” He was talking about a cannon. He was pretty amazed when they finally shot it off. He was pretty speechless for a few minutes.
I was getting B4 dressed Sunday morning before church. When I was in the middle of putting her dress on she put her arms around me and gave me a big hug. She then looked up and made a kissy face so I would bend down and kiss her. I melted…..I continue to melt just thinking about it.
I drove to work today in the snow. It continued to snow for a couple of hours this morning. It is supposed to be in the 70’s later on this week. You have to love NC weather.
We watched some of the kid’s birthday videos tonight before devotion and bed time. Sometimes it is good to look back. It seems like forever ago. It is also good to look back at the early years during the preteen and teenage years. 🙂
If you are having a long day take a few seconds to watch this video. I promise it will at least make you smile.
