I can’t believe it’s been over a week since my last post! I’ll try to catch you up. Saturday was the second dance competition of the season. It was a good one. Some of them have dances that look like they’re choreographed for strip clubs, but I only saw one that was offensive. I see that and wonder what their parents are thinking when they see these young girls dancing like that. Anyway, our group of God fearing and loving girls, and one boy scored high! Two Golds and one Elite Gold. They also placed in the top 5 overalls, winning $350! That money will go to Invisible Children because we have such wonderful directors!
Sunday was church, and not much else. Brooke and I were tired from the 14 hours on Saturday, so we laid around and watched the snow melt. We also worked on a scrapbook for her language project, while the boys made snowmen.
On Monday, Brian had a small surgical procedure. He was off work until Wednesday, so we tended to him. Mostly he slept and I kept Matthew quiet. It’s been great weather, finally! The sun has been shining, and the temperatures have been in the 60’s. Today it’s raining and dreary. I’ll take anything over 40 right now though, because it feels like a heat wave.
I think Mom and Dad are coming up tomorrow. Brooke has another competition, but this one is on Sunday. Thankfully we won’t be there all day, but we will have to miss church.
In my 90 day bible reading, I was so glad to arrive in the New Testament. I’m reading Mark today. We’re right on track to finishing up on April 1st. It’s been a great way to stay in the Word daily. I’m also reading a book called Fasting, by Jentezen Franklin. I feel an urgency to commit more of myself to the Lord right now with fasting and prayer, and so do the other members of my 1 Peter 3 group. I suggested last night a 40 day fast, and the response has been good. Pray for us as we embark on this walk.
Prayer brings up another subject that has been on my heart. I feel so blessed to have your prayer requests, and take them to the throne room for you. I’m being called to pray more, in an intercessory way, and I’m learning how to do this. I want to set up a separate page, or link, for you to go to and leave me your prayer requests. I would love to pray for you! I also plan on setting up a separate email account, so you can feel free to email your more personal requests to me. Please know that I will not share your needs with anyone but the Lord. It is my honor to pray for you. I’m just putting this out there, because I don’t even have anything set up yet. You’ll be the first to know when I do!
I think you’re all caught up now, somewhat boring as my life is, but crazy too!
