We have had VBS going on this week. Our theme has been Space and I am impressed with the worker/volunteers and all they have done. The kitchen crew, the story teller and his media tech, the music, the crafts, everything. This year was a Murphy's Law VBS because anything that could go wrong did before it ever got off the ground. Our VBS Director #1 got the ball rolling and then realized that her 50th class reunion in Texas would be during VBS time, so she passed it off to her DIL, who did a bang up job....except her 30th class reunion was on Saturday.....so I took over last night. One of the teachers who volunteered told us the Sunday before VBS that she too might have to beg off because her daughter had a huge softball tournament....but it all worked out. Sunday night is our VBS closing program. I think the kids had a great time with storytelling time, music, crafts, and recreation. I can honestly say I was delighted in how my church members stepped up to the plate and made sure it was a wonderful time.
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.
