Okay, I started this morning off with a luke warm cup of coffee and that is NOT the way to start off a morning. No way! So Levi dumped it out, for me, and we are starting it again, oh if only everything in life were that easy to start again.
Mike and Tammy and girls spent the night at Rusty and Mary's last night, and they will be spending another night over there tonight. Then we will be getting them back for 2 or 3 more nights after that. He has to get some things lined up with the Carpenters Union before they can head home and start packing their house up for the big move up here at the end of the month. Our little assembly will certainly be praying for them so that everything can go as smoothly as possible for them.
It felt good to have them in church Thursday night. Once all of our home brethren come home from their holiday travels our little church house will be plum full. We have been getting a lot of visiting brethren in still and so the Lord continues to let us know that He is mindful of us. WHEW!
My little townhouse is small, but I think it's pretty cute. It's a temporary solution this year, but I am really enjoying it. We have lived here 3 weeks and we have had company 2 of those weeks so far. What a great way to christen a house. I get a little nervous about larger families coming in, not because of me but because I dont want them to feel crowded. However, through the years, even when I was a girl we had kids sleeping all over the floor of our house and those are the best memories of hospitality. I just have to remind myself of that.
Lastly, the wedding to come. Hmmmm....boundaries. I want to be so careful to not step on bride's families toes. I want to do what I can to help, but not make anyone feel uncomfortable. After all, a little girl dreams of her wedding day for many years, and truth be told most boys don't. At least my boys didn't. You hear stories of people who feel like the grooms family wasn't involved enough or the ones that took it over....lol I want to be neither story. I just want to celebrate this wonderful event, and be exactly what I need to be.......
