Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! The conference that I went to is still soaking in. I was so blessed and when I have a little time, I will share. I had my daughters with and that was such a blessing. We went to one of the seminars that spoke on Ministering to the family with needs. We walked away changed! We do minister to families already, but we were refreshed in some new ideas.
yesterday I received an email from Katie. She won the name Americana Glory". I have to tell you what she said. It will bless you as it blessed my family. We never know what God will do in the "Little and simple things" in our lives.
Here is what Katie wrote me:
Wow! I’m so excited that the name I thought of won! Do you want to know how I came up with that name? My younger brother is our pastor, and he continually preaches Christ, and how we can bring glory to Him with the simplest, tiniest bits of our lives as well as the big things. The things you post on your blog are the “little things” that ultimately matter in how you encourage others in righteousness and to see the joy around them that God has so richly blessed us with. Our nation has a godly heritage, however we have fallen from that in today’s society. We still have a responsibility (and delight) to train our children for Christ’s glory. I enjoy patriotic things, but more importantly the “glory” in “Americana Glory” refers to the glory we can give our Savior in our daily lives as Americans.
Thank you, Katie! You are a blessing to me and now you are a blessing to many!
Was that not the most precious email?
Also here is another email that my sweetie friend Mary wrote me, also in an email. Hahahahaha! You will laugh. The only question I have, is why didn't anyone else write me and tell me I had the wrong word. heehee! I always say wrong words, just ask my sister Shannon!! She has stories to tell I am sure. I get a little mixed up sometimes. Don't you?
The mental picture I had just gave me the giggles...
corrugated is the tin on barn roofs; varigated a multi-colored thread!!!
"Clarice used corrugated thread."
This is just too, too funny.
love you, Mary
