Amazing Friday Night....

So last night was the last WOW 2010. I was so sad to say good-bye to my 7th grade small group gals! But not to worry, I still have phone numbers, mailing AND email addresses.

When we were leaving Colonial Heights (around 10 pm), I promised the girls ice cream. So we stopped at McDs and, OF COURSE, the ice cream maching was broken! So we stopped at the NEXT McDs - and there machine was broken too! I begged her to please try and she was able to "squeeze" ONE more ice cold treat out!

As we were leaving, all three girls had to use the restroom. So, while I wait, a woman approaches me for a ride...ugh-I was scared, so I said I wasn't traveling that direction. I felt so guilty - and noticed the gas gauge was a little low, but KNEW I could make it home... So, if you guessed this story has a bad ending, it DOES! Just before Williamsburg, I RUN OUT OF GAS on Interstate 64 at midnight (with 3 children in my car!). I have NEVER run out of gas (okay, I guess I have now!) and although I wasn't scared, I was SOOOOOO tired! My poor husband had to bring gas (and he WASN'T happy about it!) and we didn't get home until about 1 am!

What did I learn??? STOP for gas at a quarter of a tank!

What's in the Bible

I have the honor of reviewing What's in the Bible, a DVD series recently released by the creator of Veggie Tales! I sat down last night and watched the first two episodes and can't wait to tell you all about them (I even took notes - impressed!?!?!) Not to mention the opportunity to offer you a chance to win a copy! Keep an eye on this blog for further won't regret it!

Busy, busy, busy - Blessed, blessed, blessed

Oh my gosh, what a fabulous weekend! I just love when I SEE God working! He never ceases to amaze me! On Friday afternoon, I took my girls (plus a sweet friend of Brooke's) to SPA NIGHT at Colonial Heights Baptist Church in Colonial Heights, VA. I was expecting a night of girly fun. WOW (which happens to be the name of this 9-week event for middle school aged girls - stands for Women of Worth) does not begin to describe the night! Let me begin by saying that this Church is absolutely beautiful (inside (I mean inside the hearts of the members) and out!). Each room was incredibly decorated for the girls, each speaker was prepared/highly gifted, and every heart in leadership was looking upward! I could list every detail (and will if you like), but let me summarize to say that God was MOVING that night! I left that Church (around midnight) on a Spiritual high for the girls (and for ME!).

We then went to check into our hotel and it was fabulous! The hotel was pretty new and our room was huge! We all went to sleep and arose at 8 am to start the day pool-side (at least I was on the side-doing my Bible study while the girls enjoyed the heated pool).

We came home to a sleep-over, followed by Sunday morning Worship and teaching (5th grade). What a fabulous weekend! I am so incredibly blessed!
