Well it's been a while since I've blogged! It feels like a lifetime ago! So much has happened. Let's see where to begin: I had a Birthday! My AMAZING sweet Hubby bought/made me not one but two cakes one BIG one to share with a hundred or so family (ok so they are our church family) at the commissioning meal and another one just for us at home! I wanted a Tropical Vacation for my Birthday and since that really isn't in the budget my sweet family did the next best thing the made me a birthday in a box! I got like 10 pair of fun colored flip flops, a new beach towel, bath soak, my favorite perfume and enough chocolate to last several months! (Even for a chocoholic) I feel so special! Then a few friends took me out to celebrate the night before I left for the musical mission trip! We had ice cream and went on a Photo Scavenger hunt! I haven't laughed so hard in a very long timetion! (Thanks Girls!)
I spent two weeks on a bus with 56 or so other people and had a fabulous time! I have been on many youth trips but no other one could compare to this trip. The Students did an Incredible job! We shared the muscial: For Such a Time (based on Esther 4:14) worked in a food bank, served hotel workers in Myrtle Beach, and worked with a Boy's & Girl's Club in Orlando.
I got to see one of my bestest friends Rebekah in Augusta, GA (Her family just moved there a week or so before we traveled through)
MR C. and I in Charleston, SC
So many amazing things happened and I hope to share here soon about all of them! The biggest thing I learned was that I am not in control! You'd think I already know this but nope! I struggle with control! God is really helping me with that right now! it's not fun! But if you never struggle you'll never grow!
It was pretty neat to see the students grow and change and deepen their relationship with God.
I have been home about two weeks, and haven't had any time to rest! We have VBS this week coming up and MR C and MC C head off to High School Camp MR C for his first time and MC C for her last. Then the week after VBS/High School Camp KJ and I head to Middle School Camp! Then we come home for two days then head back as a family to Elementary Camp. I will post pictures when we get back!
We have had some other more personal things going on and I can't and won't share on here right now! But I will say that God is Faithful and He has and I know and Believe He will continue to provide for all out needs! And God can bring good from all situations!
