Tagged Response

Don't know if this is right but I'm just following Ally's tag. Here Goes:

I talk normal. Everyone else has one.
No Alcohol. Wouldn't want to miss Jesus talking to me.
I love flavored coffees, though. Decaf. Starbucks is a real treat. My daughter got me a gift card last May and I'm savoring it, one purchase at a time. I used it yesterday and still have $7 left on it. I love their unique cups.
Hateful Chores?
Cleaning up dog mess. My dog has had a nervous stomach lately. Lactose intolerant, I think.
1 dog. Used to have 2 cats that I loved, but they died. That's ok because God loves cats. He created them.
Essential Electronics?
Cell phone. Computer.
BASS GUITAR AND AMPLIFIER. I can't believe I almost forgot that one!
My favorite has always been Shalimar by Guerlain. My husbard bought me my first bottle before we were married. But I usually just have the hair pomade fragrance around me now.
Gold or Silver?
Used to be silver only, now either. I had friends who bought me a lot of simulated emerald jewely (birthstone) with gold settings. My hubby bought me a lovely little emerald in silver, ages ago. That's my favorite one.
Nope. Just wake up calls in the middle of the night so that I can call on the name of my Lord for strength and comfort.
Job Title?
Assistant to the Pastor. I LOVE MY JOB!
Most Admired Trait?
Perseverance, steadfastness, on time, one who does what they say they are going to do.
Wow! What a day for that question! Got to work with the burglar alarm system going off today but all the doors/windows were secure. A serviceman came by to check on some new windows for at the church and said he thought he saw a squirrel/rat in the one room. No surprise at that one but immediately I looked for a place to jump to. Had to get my feet off the ground. Turns out that its a larger than normal mouse who's been eating all the peanut butter off the traps! We'll get him soon!
None...just a relationship with my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ so that I can talk to God and receive instruction from His Holy Spirit
An older sister and older brother. That's right I'm the 54 year old baby of the family. Didn't you just hate that term?
Time I wake up?
5:25 am
Unusual talent or skill?
I can blow spit bubbles off my tongue.
Vegetable I refuse to eat?
Spinach. Tastes like grass. Ugh!
Worst Habit?
Talking into my cell phone when the other person hasn't finished talking.
Dental, foot, hand, chest
Favorite Meal?
Meat loaf, scalloped potatoes, brussel sprouts and apple crisp for dessert.
I think I'm getting ready for fall.
Do I have to tag anyone?

Super Sunday!

This is a picture of my husband and his water baptism testimony to the Lord.

What an awesome day!

To start it out, my husband's brother Tom, came to Sunday service and walked the walk up the aisle with my husband to receive the Lord's Salvation! There were tears all around and I'm sure that I heard the angels in heaven singing and rejoicing.

When we got to the lake for the baptism, my pastor talked how the day had started with Mike's brother's salvation. As he said that, my husband broke down and gave a little testimony about how Christ has affected him. Pastor and I started crying and soon everyone had tears. It's a joyful memory with tears of love.

My husband's walk is gaining momentum. Soon he'll be running right past me.

That's ok.

We're jointly teaching the college age students. I'm sure they'll have a lot to teach me.

We sang a song in the service "The Potter's Hand"
My eyes were drawn to the hands that were shaping, molding, making a new vessel out of a pliable substance. He added water to smooth and nourish the clay. All of the unwanted clay came off on his hands. As he continued to work, his arms and body became contaminated by shavings and clumps of excess clay. The work in his hands became smoother, while his hands got dirtier.

How much does our Savior clean us up to make us useful? He took on our infirmities and sins to cleanse us and make us new.

How wonderful is our God!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
