Monday Morning Update 8.16.09

It was an exciting weekend. We had the opportunity to do a movie night in the trailer park in Anna. Because of the high Hispanic population in the park, we invited New Covenant Church to help us out since they offer bilingual services. I thought it was neat to see us working side by side to make a positive impact on the community. I love Maggie and Ezekiel's heart for God.

Today was my turn to work in Children's church again. I was so excited when I saw the lesson. I got to teach the children about Acts 1:8, the command to GO. Sharing about missions and the important of mission work is definitely one of my primary passions. I appreciate that God arranged the timing so that I was the one who got to share that lesson with the children. In discussing the Acts 1:8 model, we decided to focus on a local mission project today. The children created treats for the teachers to welcome them back to school this week.

I am assuming that the adult services went well. The day was crazy, and I have not even had the opportunity to talk to Shawn much about how it all came together. I think attendance was down some this week because it's everybody's last weekend to head out of town before school starts.

Remember to pray this week that God would grant us favor in using the schools. The school board is voting on our proposal Thursday night.

This has nothing to do with church at The Crossroads, but it was a cool moment that I wanted to share. Tonight in the car, Katie says, "Mommy do you have any paper?" Me, "No." Katie, "How about a napkin." Me, "No." Katie, "Can I type on your phone?" Me, "Why?" Katie, "Because there's this song in my head that I need to write down. It's being too loud for me to think." That's my girl right there!

Here's the lyrics she had time to type "Do you remember all the memories that are locked up in this house? Like the day I came run'n through that door." - not a bad start for my 9 year old.

Summer is over. I am back at work tomorrow morning. I'm not at all sure where my summer went. I still have so much left to do. I am praying that God will grant me wisdom and grace in my classroom this year. That He will help me to see my students with His eyes instead of my own.

Trey always did down his thoughts. They've turned into quite the collection of poems. And he draws, too...great graphics. That kid of mine is so much more talented than I could ever think of being.
