i am going to set the bar LOW for this week’s blogging. i know that tomorrow i will be on a bus to sea world with a bunch o’ 5th graders at 5 a.m. and home around 11 p.m. don’t expect to hear anything from me. but screams of pain. and yawning. not from boredom. from exhaustion. and insanity.
the 8th grade dance/fundraiser went AMAZINGLY WELL. for having 150 kids and only 2 parents signed up to chaperone. lots of teacher and staff came out and helped. and at 4:00 p.m. the d.j called and was going to cancel. some personal issues. but the principal at raa talked him off the ledge and back onto the gymnasium stage to play the tunes. good. because i don’t think the musical selections from lea’s ipod were going to be a big hit with too many of the middle schoolers. except those who like broadway tunes and christian music. and maybe some rick springfield fans in the crowd.
the 8th graders had a GREAT time. the dancing and dress was appropriate. i took lots of photos. and no one died. win/win/win/win.
so to recap the weekend... rosalea recovered from her fever. a soccer game was rained out. we attended 2 steel drum concerts. one choir/mission friends graduation ceremony. a graduation party. and a greene family cookout in honor of adam’s birthday complete with the opening of the crane pool. check this one off because this weekend is in the books. the color coded books.
and now onto another week in may. crazy crazy may. a week that will find me thinking of my friend tracy a lot. this week shows me the power of patiently waiting on the Lord. the power of Trust. the power of forgiveness. of mercy. what grace really means. what marriage really means. and the promises of God that some journeys end. and other journeys begin. one day we will hear the words “welcome Home” and that will be the sweetest Homecoming of all. but sometimes we hear those words in our lifetime. we feel the joy of a earthly homecoming and it is sweet indeed. a foretaste of glory divine.
in honor of tracy and her family here is my song of the day... amazing grace (my chains are gone)
