Yesterday and Today

Yesterday I taught Sunday school at church.  The lesson was on how God is Great.  The second part of the lesson was on how we praise God.  My 3rd - 5th graders listened.  I love it when I see them listening with their eyes!  And I taught them about the book of Psalms... read them several... and then had them write their own Psalm.  I was so touched as they took the time and wrote BEAUTIFUL psalms to the Lord.  It was one of the sweetest classes ever... just second to the class I taught on fruits of the Spirit!

Yesterday we made pleas for children who need love, who need to know God is great, and need to be taught how to see Him and how to praise Him.  They need help.  They need hope.  They need love.  They need families.  And the response to our pleas were nothing short of beautiful.  Today is the last day to commit to the hosting this summer of these kids... and God was moving mightily and I can't wait to see what happens today!

Today I got to go back to bed and sleep.  I got to sleep until 9 a.m.  I needed that sleep.  My husband is so sweet to let me sleep.  And today we have an appointment somewhere that may bring hope with it as well. :0) 

Today I am in love with God who shows Himself to me over and over and over.  I am in love with my friends who have hearts so big and full that I am the luckiest and most blessed girl to be friends with them.
