Wow! I've been really busy this week! I worked Dittos for Kiddos twice, taught school on Tuesday and Thursday, and worked a wedding this weekend. Now I'm on to sewing a dress for Abbie. It's impossible to find great fabric in Abilene. It's going to be a combination Easter and Aunt Margaret's wedding dress. Yes, that's right Aunt Margaret Tresler is getting married on April Fool's Day! (I'm pretty sure it was just the 1st day the church was available.) We will be going and both kids have to look wonderful, of course. I'll let you know how it goes!


I was working at Dittos and one of the other workers was telling of her direct sales job - Passion parties. Eeeekkkk! You figure it out. One the other workers then says "Well, now I feel close enough to ask you all..." Let me tell you, I was scared. I didn't know what was coming out of her mouth! "Do Church of Christ people have to keep their houses clean? Without any clutter? Like, is that in your Bible?" I was stunned but in a much better way than I expected.
I know what you're thinking - is this woman blonde? Yeah, she's blonde. It turned out the 2 COCers she knew were very clutter-free. All the COC in the room confessed to messy and cluttered houses.
Is there somewhere we can add that? We could probably stick it in Proverbs somewhere. Do we need more guilt in our lives?


For those of you that don't attend (or were unable to attend) Southern Hills, try to listen to Phil's sermon online. Phil has been doing a series on sin and today was on fire! I love my church. I love the conviction of our elders to love all sinners. I love reaching out to all sinners. Listen online or download for your iPod.

Okay, was it the Passion Party rep. who asked if CofC'er's have to have a clean house? Has she been having CofC Passion Parties -- and I wasn't invited? (I think I actually know a rep. here in town, but I've fortunately blocked out who it is). PLEASE do not add "de-clutter home" to Proverbs. I'm good on guilt.

I can't figure out how to download to my ipod. Bummer.
