Goodbye Youth

First it was a kid at church who called me an old lady.
Then this morning I pulled a muscle in my back just standing up...yeah... I was fixing my hair...I found two gray hairs. Nooooo!

Old people have gray hair. I'm not supposed to have gray hair yet! Don't get me wrong, I'm not opposed to having gray hair...just not at 25!

Ok, now I feel nauseous.

Goodbye Youth! I shall miss you...kinda.

Mittagessen Delicatessen

Subway has been one of my favorites for a long time, because it's fast food without the grease and it tastes good, too. But...Subway, I'm sorry, you're being bumped down on the list because of the delicious "Mittagessen Deli."

The only problem is, I only get it a couple times a year when I house/cat-sit for my Aunt and Uncle. This is tragic.

My city used to have Schlotzsky's  (my all-time favorite sandwiches), then it left. Then Quiznos. I was a little undecided about Quiznos, then I loved it, then it left. So I had to settle for Subway, for years. If only I could convince the nice people of Mittagessen Deli to drive an hour to deliver a sandwich to my house. Hmmm....I'll just have to eat my fill while I'm here....Mittagessen  every day!

Mid-week Bible Study

We now have a mid-week Bible Study at my church. My Pastor is leading it using a book by Mark Dever called "What is a Healthy Church?" It meets at 6pm every Wednesday. I know...Wednesday night, so typical of a Baptist church. :-) The choice was made based on how many people could attend - a toss up between Tuesday and Wednesday - and Wednesday won.

Anyway, I think the study is going to be interesting and eye-opening. I, like many others, have a desire to see our church (a people, not a place) rise above what we think church should be and instead look to see what God says church should be...

...continually seeking to be God's kind of church.

New Bible Studies

We're starting 2 new Bible studies at my church. The adult and teen Bible classes have merged into a men's and women's class for the next 12 or so weeks. The women are using a book by Ann Spangler & Jean E. Syswerda called "Women of the Bible." The men are using a book called "Twelve Ordinary Men" by John MacArthur.

I'm a little jealous of the guys because they get to do a John MacArthur study! (I may wear a fake mustache or pretend like I'm doing some really important technical stuff over by the sound system so I can listen in on the guys I'm really looking forward to the women's study, too. I've been wanting to do a 'women of the Bible' study for close to a year now, so I know this one will be good. It's nice to have just the women together sometimes, partly for the fellowship and partly because there's a lot more we can talk about when it's just the girls.

Just Dance for health

I have a Wii and I recently got Just Dance 2. It's SOO fun! People who are avid dancers are always in great shape. When I was little I took a year of ballet - thanks to my siser-in-law - and I danced ALL the time to whatever music that was playing...while walking to the fridge, while brushing my teeth, while eating at the dinner table...but other than that I have NO dance experience whatsoever and it really showed haha.

Dancing is an unbelievable workout, but fun at the same time which tricks you into thinking that you're not actually working out. My favorite thing is "just sweat" which gives you 3 easy to hard programs to track your progress during the week. A relative of mine has only been doing it for 2 weeks and has already lost weight and a few inches around the waste.  Good job!
I'm already thinking about buying Just Dance 3.

Harmless Basketball

I've been going to my nephew's home junior high basketball games this year. I think they're still undefeated. Woo!! I'm so glad I decided to record some of the game, because I got him(#15) making an awesome shot! Then I almost dropped the camera while screaming...

Music to my ears

I had a great time with the music last Sunday. The visitors outnumbered our people two to one. It was great! (Although, it would have been even greater if more of our people had attended.) I love to sing praises to God with a bunch of other followers of Jesus. Also, to not feel like I'm singing a solo up front is always a good thing for me..hah..

We generally have several women (because we can't get the men up there) that sing with me on Sunday mornings.  We were missing one of our girls last Sunday and it felt like part of the family was gone! The truth of that is that church is family, real family. It's so easy to love people who follow Jesus because we have everything in common, that is...we both know Jesus.
