Jesus in Awesome

I was checking some blogs I like to read today and noticed that the last time we posted anything was Wednesday and that is just too long (that and Chip telling me that it had been a while!). So I shall come up with something funny and amusing to share with you.

Today I was getting the kool-aid mustache off of Anna's upper lip(put plain ol' toothpaste on a wet washcloth and rub, and it miraculously comes off-amazing!!), apparently I was rubbing a little too hard because she said "Don't rub my head off or Jesus will have to give me a new head!" She gives Jesus a lot of credit for things I'm not so sure He wants credit for. Like the other day when I told her to go to the bathroom and she told Samuel that Jesus hadn't put any poop in her. I realize that Jesus is awesome and capable of anything but Anna might just be pressing her luck there!

While we are on the subject of Jesus, let me share with you about our seniors this year. Our church held a banquet for our graduating seniors (there were 8 of them) last night and today we honored them with a slide show(are they still called that?) and announcement of their accomplishments and a Bible. This group of seniors is really great! There are 6 boys and 2 girls, 5 of the boys are Eagle Scouts. They all received various scholarships and are headed off to four different colleges. I am so honored to have known these kids. The love they have for their families, their church, their pastors wife(which is the most important to love! LOL!!), and God should be an inspiration for us all. They have overcome many odds this year and still have seen themselves quite successful. I am so proud of Samuel, Seth (they are twins), Randall, Megan, Julian, Laura Ann, Johnathan and Kyle. I use each of you as examples to my children, thank you for being so transparent to our family and so kind to my children. Please continue to be good examples, just because you are going to college doesn't mean we aren't watching you! We will be!!!!
Please continue to pray for Abby and Randall as they look for a house, try to sell theirs and as Abby looks for a job.

What a nice thing you all did for the graduating seniors. They are so lucky to have you for a friend and mentor.

Isn't it wonderful the relationship little Anna has with Jesus. She is so sweet.Love you all, mamaw
