Friday, Oct.10th, 15 youth girls arrived, yes it was a sleep over. We began with a devotion it was on "totally surrendering ourselves to the Lord". Yes the SEX talk. "Staying and Desiring Purity". We then when out on the porch and eat nachos and hot dogs. YUM YUM. The movie "Grace Unplugged" was next with popcorn, cupcakes and some lolly pops on the side. We then went outside and roasted marshmallows. And yes we did take some time to practice a song and dance for a special event the youth are going to Saturday, Oct, 25. That brought us to about 11ish, I have two bed rooms which the girls were divided up into , they headed to their rooms with lots of giggle,. and I heard some fell a sleep laughing.
Good Morning Everyone, yes it is Saturday Morning! The girls were up and ready at 8am, We started with our devotion on " Being a True Worshiper". Are we focused on the Lord or on what people will think of us. Do we wake ready to worship, ready to serve the Lord. Do we come to church READY to worship our Heavenly Father or is it time to see our friends! Then it was time for breakfast, cereal and toast and juice. And then is was lets practice our dance a few more times Miss. Kathy, was the request and then it was time to , lets clean up and I started a load of sheets. At a 11am, My little car took 6 home. And then rest were pick up by a friend.
I got home and it was more washing of sheets and tidying up. We were off now to a BBQ. Friends of mine, their daughter was having a birthday party, so off to the party we went. It was a great party and great food. We helped with clean up and headed home.
Now, I say we, because Miss Blanca, who is the lady that my home church , HiWay Pentecostal of Ingersoll, Ont. CAN, sent a team to build an outhouse and shower house for the family . Also last year we had a team come from Kitchener, Ont. CAN. and they got a house built for the family. Well, Miss. Blanca's, daughter Jacky, has been living in my house for these past few months. Jacky is attend University. Where the family lives there no internet, and it is too far for Jacky to take a bus late at night. Her last class is 6:45pm. She has a sponsorship and she lives free in my house, which really helps out the family financially,and she is lots of fun and a great help to me. When I was visiting this summer in Canada, Jacky took care of my house and dog Mocha.
Well, we got home from the Birthday Party and we were pretty tired, but we needed to get ready for Sunday, so we did more wash and cleaning up and setting up the porch for another party.
Now it is Sunday, great service at church. Pastor Robert shared about obedience and coming under an authority. After church we piled Miss. Blanca and her children and also her father, so there was 8 of us in my little car. It was Miss. Blanca's birthday yesterday and Jacky and I wanted to do something special.
I want to put in my request here for a van. I so need a new vehicle and I am asking for a 7 passenger van. I have been praying and I am believing for a miracle. My little car is 98 and I have had it for 5 years and it is dying.
We got home from Church and we had a great time. We eat, laughed, and watched the Garfield movie. I just love this family. Miss. Blanca is one of my hero's. She loves the Lord and loves her children but so needs help financially.
Well after the party for Miss. Blanca, we piled everyone back in my little car and took them home. When we got back to my house, Jacky and I started to clean up and then yes we began to get ready for tomorrows "Thanksgiving Dinner". This is really really special, I received an extra blessing of a $100's which enable me to host the sleep over for the youth girls, as well as Miss. Blanca Birthday Party and as well as the Thanksgiving Dinner.
Sooooooo, now I am sitting here Monday morning, and wish a
"HAPPY THANKSGIVING to all my Canadian family and friends". I am enjoying a nice cup of coffee! The table is set, dessert is prepared, potatoes are peeled, veggies ready to cook and turkey is done. I will have 7 at my Thanksgiving Dinner table. I am really excited and ready for this evening. It all begins at 5pm.
