Great Sermon, Great Worship, Great Fellowship, Great family time = Spectacular Sunday!

There is something amazingly wonderful about worshiping the God of the universe together as a body. Totally enjoyed church the past two weeks. Great worship, great sermons, old and new friends.  Today we enjoyed the added bonus of hearing Pastor Breanne G (our daughter) share her heart and vision for Kids on the Rock Children's Ministry. I have a few pictures from last week, which I wasn't sure I'd have a chance to share. LOL 
Donna and BreAnne are office Buddies

Children's Ministry has the upstairs of the church - and it's beautiful! 

Stacia and Zander have enjoyed all the kids and stories

They're buying goats as an outreach project

Yes, they even have a rock wall....and they use it.

It's a good thing BRE is the pastor in this section - I think I'd be tempted to hang a few darlins from the rock wall. ::snsort:: 

Dad is still contagious today and didn't come to church.

Mom, Will, Sherri, the kids, Michael, Bre and I went to lunch. 

Sherri and I made a Costco run. I was AMAZED AGAIN at the portion sizes of products and such in America. How quickly I forget. ::grin::  Sherri introduced me to Sweet place to sit and visit. 

Nolan had gone to the girl's apartment for a party. We went over to pick him up and enjoyed a family walk along the Willamette river. I LOVE this river-walk....natural and pretty.... just fun! I think there is a chain of parks along the other side of the river. If Michael is up to it after his tests on Tuesday and Wednesday, I think we'll pack lunches and go exploring.  We plan to be packing on Thursday and possibly flying on Friday????? 

 Back at the girls' apartment Michael busied himself with bike repair (anyone have a gear puller)?

We visited and played games.....
Honestly, enjoying this taste of family living has me thinking more and more about retirement. LOL  Stacia has informed me it's TIME to go back to Misawa - she misses her dolls. 

Choosing Joy!

Your three boys in Texas are great and tough. :):) Wow..banking, running, college and the likes. Dad is really looking forward to going someplace tomorrow. He is hardly coughing anymore and etc. love/prayers - mom t.
