The prize for the team who raised the most money was to throw messy shotputs. They were actually just balloons filled with water, mustard, and chocolate syrup. The older kids won by one dollar. Eric and our associate pastor, Jeff were the victims. They had to stand there while the kids threw these nasty balloons on them. Well, needless to say the balloons didn't pop very well, so we had a few people who ran back into the church and grabbed the leftover mustard and chocolate syrup and squirted them all over with the bottles. YUCK! It was hilarious/disgusting. The guys were really good sports about it and all the kids got a kick out of it.
Just wanted everyone to know what an amazing man I am married to. He is always doing little things to show me that he loves me.
Remember the newspaper cut out that said "I love you".
Well, the other morning he said that he would make me my coffee. Of course, how could I resist such an offer. He then proceeds to make the coffee, but before pushing the start button he asks me, "Is this enough coffee grounds?" I thought, "Hmmm...He has made my coffee before and has never asked me that," I look into the coffee filter and to my surprise there is a short message from my hubby to me. "I Love You!"
Then, a few short mornings later I opened up our cabinet door to get a cereal bowl and when I looked inside there was the shape of an "I" made out of Cheerios. Being the observant one that I am I decided to look into the next cereal bowl. Yep, a "heart" shape was in the second bowl. And yes, as you have probably already guessed I took out the third cereal bowl and there was a "U".
He really does love me!. Thanks baby.

That's when Psalm 66:10 comes to mind..."For You, O God, tested us; You refined us like silver."
God knows just what He is doing. He will test us and try us and when we are brought through the fire we will be like pure silver. A vessel to be used by God for His purpose.
Allow me to be completely broken so that You can build me back up into a beautiful vessel crafted by the Master Himself!
..."For I know the plans I have for you...plans to give you hope and a future." (Jeremiah 29:11)
