Work and Other Things...

Well, work wasn't so bad yesterday. The surveyors haven't talked to me yet and that is fine with me! The worst part of my day yesterday was all of my co-workers who are depressed, ready to quit their jobs, mad at the world, blah blah blah. They really need the hope, joy, and peace that is found in Christ. One guy told me "you optimists drive me crazy". The surveyors will be there through tomorrow, so I still have one more day with them. The last day they are usually wrapping things up, so hopefully they will leave me alone. Keep those prayers coming!

On the way home from work last night there was the most beautiful sunset. It was about 9:30 and I was driving along a country road when I saw what I thought was a couple of kids by the road. It turned out to be a Mennonite couple sitting in the grass and watching the sun go down. I'm sure they were courting. It was such a sweet and innocent sight that it brought tears to my eyes. Then the song "Walking Her Home" came on the radio and I was really in tears!

Good news. It is Wednesday and the house is still clean. I've even stayed up and done the dishes and put away laundry when I really didn't feel like it. It's so much nicer when I get up in the morning and it's done already.

Today we go back to VBS at church. Then Matthew and Lochlyn will be over for lunch. I had fun helping at VBS on Monday. I helped in the craft area. Some of the kids painted stepping stones and the smaller kids made magnets. On Friday the kids get a cook out, so that should be fun too. Hopefully Ethan and Tyler won't give me too much trouble about going back to their class today. Isaiah gets to stay in the nursery with grandma.

The sunset story was cool. My courtship might not be as innocent but it is still so special to remember.

good luck tomorrow at work, i just prayed for you again.

I saw the sunset last night too and it was gorgeous!! The story is very sweet.... so innocent and pure.
Have fun at VBS! My Mom is in the nursery Sonya.
Hope all goes well tomorrow! Hopefully they'll just skip right over you.

That is so funny because when Steve and I walked downstairs after putting the kids to bed, I looked out the window and said how beautiful the sky was and he agreed. When he was little and his Dad passed away, his mom told him when the sky was pretty like that, that it was his Dad painting it from heaven. His Dad was a painter. So last night we thanked him for painting us a beautiful picture. Isn't it funny that so many of us noticed it last night!

Wow, that's awesome! We all live so scattered apart but we can all see and appreciate the same big sky!!

Lura, I loved the story about the couple........too sweet. I felt like I was there when I read it.

I am praying for will all be over soon!!!

Girl, I know what you mean about coworkers that are so negative and have no joy! I work with one too and it drives me crazy but I just try to overpower her with happiness and silliness and she usually can't fight it! ha ha
