Odds n Ends

Happy Monday! I hope you all enjoyed the weekend. I mainly puttered around the house and worked on a few projects. Sunday's church services were a blessing. Sadly, many churches cancel their Sunday evening service so that people can sit at home and watch the Super Bowl. We'll never cancel ours for football. :) Every Sunday is a Super Sunday when you can hear great preaching and fellowship with other believers. I'm so thankful for the freedom I have to attend a Bible-believing church!

Tonight is our monthly ladies' fellowship at chuch. I've asked one of the ladies to give a devotional with a "love" theme. Mrs. M has been married over 40 years and is a very godly Titus 2 example. I'm looking forward to what she'll share.

All of the ladies bring a covered dish or two for our meal. I got out of having to cook for tonight by stocking up on some buy 1/get 1 free deals at the grocery store. A nice big shrimp platter is chilling in the fridge and will be a nice addition to all the home-cookin'.

Tomorrow is a very special day for our family. No, not because it's Super Tuesday (although I'll be at the polling place bright and early). You'll have to check back tomorrow and see what all the celebrating is about. :)

I still haven't heard from the winner of my giveaway, so I'll try to contact her again today. If I don't get a response, I'll select another random number and announce a new winner later this week. In other bloggy-news, two fellow bloggers have blessed me with the Excellent Blog Award.

Faith is someone that I "know" through blogging. She is a part time special education teacher in New York and has two daughters. She seems like such a sweet lady. ;)

Mommy, a homeschooling mom of three, is actually a friend of mine from Florida. She attended the Bible college (and met her husband) at our home church there. At one time she lived a couple of blocks from me. I used to see her pushing a stroller at an unbelievable pace past my house each day as she walked away the baby pounds. What an inspiration! :) She now lives in another Florida town, and I haven't seen her since our move to Georgia. Hopefully we'll be able to get together for a visit in the future. I'm looking forward to meeting her third child, Tiny Boy, one of these days.

Thank you both for thinking of me!

Hello Mrs. C! I just came across your blog a few days ago and I have enjoyed reading what you have to say.

I too am a pastor's wife with three children that I homeschool.

We don't cancel our services for the Super Bowl (I've heard some call it the Stupid Bowl.) I'm glad to know there are others out there who don't get caught up in this world. I'd rather hear from God than a sports announcer.

Bless you,
Nikki

I had no idea churches called off church because of the super bowl. Our church had morning and evening church like usual. Its so sad that the super bowl means more to Christians than their Jesus!

Mrs. Darling,
I'm right there with 'ya! ;)

Gee, I really enjoyed the superbowl as did my entire family, our church doesn't have Sunday night services so it isn't an issue but I don't think that God would mind it if someone wanted to watch the game! It was awesome!!!!

Marissa,
Our family enjoys watching football, too, but it's certainly not more important than church attendence. Our church has Sunday night services, and I personally feel that it would be wrong for me to skip out on worshipping the Lord just to watch a football game or participate in any other "recreational" activity. I think that would be making the statement that football was more important to me than spending time in God's house praising Him and hearing a message from His Word. I do feel that God would mind.

In my post I was specifically referring to churches who usually have Sunday night services but cancel them for the Super Bowl.

Hebrews 10:25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.
