It is Monday and it is a day I have been waiting for since back in September. Frank and I are taking 7 of our youth to Gatlinburg to Winter Extreme. Originally we had 12 commit...but they began dropping out early....oh well...they won't know what they are missing. We will be home on Weds. night. I am a little antsy since it has snowed here...and there....and it is going to be colder than a well diggers backside in North Dakota...but it is going to be fun. I just hope I can keep up with them. Monday we will check in and then Monday night have our first service/concert. Our first Xtreme Evening will feature Tenth Ave North, Ergun Caner and MercyMe. I love Mercy Me. I am so excited about seeing them. Tuesday there will be two services/concerts. Xtreme Morning will be Newsong and Josh McDowell. Xtreme Evening will feature Francesca Battistelli, Tony Nolan and Skillet. The kids are looking forward to Skillet. Wednesday morning we will load up, check out and go to our final concert/service. Xtreme Morning will be done by Johnny Hunt and Newsboys. I like them too. I will be deaf before I get home...but I will be in heaven with all that music and energy. I am planning to take my laptop so I will keep you up to date on Winter Extreme...and Gatlinburg in the winter. If you have never been there...you should come...it is a beautiful place. Have a Happy Monday and pray for traveling grace for us as we transport the kids from here to there (its a 5+ hour ride).
I am a woman who wears many hats and loves them all. I am a singer - I sing with the group Still Magnolias. I was part of the original First United Methodist Church Arbor Praise Team until we moved. After 24+ years of teaching English 11 and Spanish I - II at Benjamin Russell High School I decided to take a job closer to home. I now teach Spanish I & 2 at Randolph Co. High School and Wadley. I thought I was getting close to retirement and looking forward to it, but decided to move my cheese and try something different. I am a preacher's wife and a preacher myself. My husband Frank is the pastor at Rock Mills United Methodist Church and I am the pastor at Midway (Wedowee). It has made our conversations interesting, to say the least.
