We had a very busy weekend around here. We started by celebrating Valentine's on Friday evening. Steven and I went out to dinner by ourselves and had a great time.

On Saturday morning, we had a pancake breakfast for the children of our church. While the breakfast was being cooked, the kids made almost 100 Valentines. After we ate, we took all the Valentines to our local nursing home to deliver them to the residents. It was such a blessing to see our children being a blessing to others!



Later that day, Dougie had his basketball game. My mom, dad, my sister Laura and her son, Chaz and my neice Mia came. Mom, Dad and and Mia planned on spending the night with us but Laura and Chaz had to head back Sat. evening. But when it came time to go, Chaz ended up staying the night too!
Dougie had a great b-ball game!
On Saturday evening, our youth hosted a dinner theater, "The Not-So Newly Wed Game." It was a great time of laughing and the dinner they served was delicious!

The youth performed different commercials and songs. One group of boys perfomed "Elvira" by the Oakridge Boys. Emma, Dougie and Mia enjoyed it so much that when we got home Sat. evening, we got an encore performance. Excuse the mess in the background.......

On Sunday, the children and youth wanted to do something special for Steven, so they asked me to get the keys to his car. This is what they did~

His car was covered with sticky note Valentine's!!! Some were so cute and funny!


This one cracks me up, "Jesus hearts you and I am trying."
Well I think that's enough about our weekend.
Love y'all!

I feel like that last note you took a picture of is how A LOT of our parisheners feel about us right now.....in our denomination moving around lends itself to feelings like that about a new pastor sometimes...
