We had a wonderful Thanksgiving, complete with all the fixings, family, friends and Brian being sick as a dog. Poor guy was too sick to really enjoy the food I felt so bad for him for it tasted awesome. We had stome friends come over to play games and we now know that I can kick rear in the game Fact or Crap...LOL

My friend Wendy and I braved the Black Friday sales we got up at O'dark thirty and first stop was Walmart. I have never seen such chaos in my life as the aisles were packed no carts getting through...so I planted Wendy in the electronics isle and I took of on foot on my conquest for the best deals. I ran back and forth to get items and brought them back to the cart and with direction from my commrade I ran out again for the next quest. I kind of felt like I was in World of Warcraft game...LOL. We conquered Walmart in under a mere 2.5 hours...not bad huh? Yeah right. We shopped for a complete 12 hours and came home and died from exhaustion. But we got some good deals and we had a great time together so that is what really matters. And I am almost finished with my shopping I have stocking stuffers and just a few items left...it beats the Christmas Eve rush I am used too.

Today, I had the honor of teaching on stage in Pre-teens at church. I have to admit I wasn't nervous until I got on the stage and the spotlight was on me. But after the first 15 mins I settled into it and I think the kids had a good time and learned about how to plug into Gods power through the Holy Spirit. I had a great time teaching them Romans 3:23 in sign language and I know they had a fun learning it. I am excited to be used by God to teach these kids about the love of God and how to spread that love to others.

Unfortantely, I now have the same virus Brian had on Thanksgiving..darn it, but at least it waited until after I had good food and my first time teaching. Praise God for that good fortune.
Until next time....blessings.

Today I recieved a call from an old friend and I was so blessed by the conversation. It reminds me to stay in touch with those family and friends that I love. Time flies and I know I get busy, but I need to remember that God made us for relationships.

This weeks BSF lesson was amazing!! It really is wonderful to read in the old testiment and realize just how orderly God was and how much He loves us. I was able to see the ten commandments in a whole new way this week, by really studying them and seeing just what God was telling me on each one of them. How short I have fallen on some of them, but how amazing is His grace and mercy.

Thanksgiving is right around the corner and I love this time of year. Good food, family, games, putting up the tree and Christmas music starts. Woohoo. I am exicted!!
