Sundays start at 7:00 a.m. for us....and seeing as how we are always just pushing getting to church on time, we need to start a tad earlier.

Checking in only 2 children is a lot easier than checking in all 4. The 2 youngest go to their preschool classes while the older 2 go to JBQ....DH and I will be coaching a team this year.

Class was good. Church was even better....we talked about the movie "August Rush." Some great comparisons were made between our lives (finding Christ) and the movie.

I tried out for the worship team today. Though I'm not really nervous about making it, I was still a bit nervous actually auditioning. I will find out in a few days if I made it. I have always wanted to be on the worship team, but couldn't as I was director of Christian education. I'll let you know.

Came home and had some yummy lunch: charro beans, BBQ brisket, tater salad, and corn bread...homemade chocolate chip cookies for dessert.

All the boys are in bed. Peace. I have the chance to do my favorite thing....cook. For tonight's small group I made chile con queso (with spicy sausage in it), dip for the Red White and Blue sundaes and chicken salad...all while listening to Gershwin's "An American in Paris."

I have updated my Bible reading list and changed the Christmas countdown. (I need more details as it is quickly approaching.)

I sit and hear the wind in the trees and through the wind chimes. I love wind.

A full pantry, wonderful aromas from the kitchen, my children and hubby all safe and snug in various areas of the house. These are the things that bring me joy.

I hope you are having as great a day as I am.

Happy July 6!

We missed our church today, I mean litterally missed it. We went to my parents church since we are visiting them and it was good, but I just missed everything about our church. Pass me some of that tater salad will ya? It all sounds so yummy.

I am anxiously waiting to hear how your auditions went. My fingers are crossed for ya girlie...

Hope you make the worship team. I had to quit after a few years because of my back!! Let us all know!

Also I am interested in the charro beans. We all like beans here so I wanted to ask about them!!
