Church was especially uplifting. Our church became command central for the tornado recovery efforts that effected the surrounding neighborhoods. We fed some 1,800 people over this past week. Crazy. I don't know how all that food and all those people came, got fed, coordinated, organized, etc. But, it did! As our pastor said today, "What a real way to put into practice service. What an incredible opportunity God provided for us to love our community." The music just rocked and well, it was teary for me.
After arriving home, Jay and I decided we would take a nap. The kids went outside to play. About an hour later, I got up. Ethan and Sadie had changed into bathing suits and were playing with the hose. Sadie found the biggest mud puddle, of course, and I am sure the bathing suit she was sporting is ruined. I looked around for Lily and didn't see her. I started to get a little concerned when I saw her asleep on the trampoline, or champoline as she calls it. Ahhh, the joys of living on 10 acres and not having to worry about neighbors who think you have abandoned your kids and who might call DSS.
