Good morning ladies! I would love to stay and chat awhile...but it is FINALLY Science Fair day. However, we have also been visited by a winter storm and right now it has begun sleeting outside.
We knew the weather was coming and made provisions. I have all of the 5th and 6th grade projects at my house and we are going to get there if we can. However, I am not sure, at this point if we will have judges. I am so sad for our kids, they have worked so hard. On the bright side, if we do cancel, I will have probably two whole days in the house. O glory! That means I might actually get to visit around a little. Hey, I might even go crazy and clean a little!
Small things have been non existent this week. In fact computer time has been non existent. The week has been packed with birthdays and projects and dance and guitar and basketball. Some highlights: We started out new Bible Study by Angela Thomas--week one was phenomenal, and it was just the introduction! My favorite message is from Psalm 45:11 which says, "The king is enthralled by your beauty; honor Him, for He is the Lord." Ladies, he is enthralled by YOU! No matter what has happened. What you have done or haven't done. Whether you are loud or shy or too skinny or too heavy. Whether you have read the Bible through or are questioning the love of a God you can't quite grasp...He is enthralled by you. He loves you. He desires you! How exciting is that?
That message was so timely this week as I struggled just to get through. School has been ROUGH! On top of Science fair, FB had a ton of other assignments and both B.B. and Dancer had special "projects" requiring a lot of extra time that will be due next Tuesday. Last minute organizational stuff for Science Fair and life just was crazy. My poor OCD husband has come into a house that looked like a tornado hit every day. Really, I told my Bible Study that you could eat off my floor. Literally. There are enough crumbs, dropped food, etc. down there to make a meal! Not only that but it was Tigerfan's birthday this Wed. and I didn't even have him a present. NOTHING! AND when we took him to lunch it was right after the worst tragedy of the week when Dancer left her completed special project on the floor with a permanent marker. Oh yes, you know what is coming. Tigercub found it and DESTROYED it. Colored almost every square inch with black Sharpee. To say I was distraught is an understatement. And I handled it in a very human way, with weeping and gnashing of teeth. Speaking of gnashing teeth, that same day, Tigercub also bit Dancer. How precious to know that in the chaos that is us, in my failings as a mom and a wife and a teacher, the Author of Life is enthralled by me! By ME!
Okay. I really just meant to hop on here for a minute. I must go finish my nervous breakdown over ice storms and Science Fairs. I hope all of you have a blessed weekend, and if you find time, read Psalm 45:11. I hope to be visiting with you all soon!
