Feelings

Sunday morning was wonderful. We had Senior Sunday and there were lots of Seniors - high school Seniors. They were so handsome and good-looking but nothing compared to the 1st graders. At Southern Hills the 1st graders get a real (with words) Bible on Senior Sunday. Those kids were so sweet. So many of them are children of my friends and that made it even sweeter. One of the girls, Natalie, was so excited she couldn't stop laughing and giggling with Grace Ann. ( I used their real names cause it's sweeter.) Their grins were huge and cute! All the parents got up to take the kids pictures - that was priceless,too. A huge crowd pushing each other to get the best shot.

There were two baptisms, too. One of them was a guy baptizing his fiance - it isn't often you see someone come up out of the water and get a kiss. I'm sure it was a "holy kiss" as mentioned by Paul. The other was a young girl. Needless to say I was on emotional overload. I cried during the whole thing while both of my kids told me not to cry. One of the older ladies told me that she was a crier, too, but she takes 1 to 2 Aleve to even out her emotions. I kinda want to feel my emotions. Sometimes they're a little out of control but I want to be honest about them. You know?

Aleve -- for emotions? Did someone tell her it was Prozac? I've never heard of that one. . . at any rate, I would rather my emotions drip out of my eyes than not be there at all. I'm with ya!

Thanks for being so gracious as I crawled over you and Jim to be one of those annoying parents with their cameras on Sunday morning.

Nanna bought Ally a big big bible bag for her new "with words" bible. It's the biggest, brightest bible cover I've ever seen. She is Sooooo Proud of it.

Yeah never heard of Aleve for evening out emotions. That's a new one. Sunday was great, the singing was awesome. We had to leave after service & skip class to take the kids to the airshow, and I was so sad about missing! I just love this church. I look forward to going, and miss it when we aren't able to. I think that is what it's all about. And if you don't have that...then it might be time to find a new church!

Baptisms always make me weepy.
