Saturday I had two big events: the Amazing Race for church and Angie's wedding. I wanted to go to both! Especially the Race because I had so much fun helping get it all planned. I decided I would just go to the wedding and miss the reception. Then, it rained allllll afternoon. Poured! Downtown turned into a river, and we canceled the Race. So, I got to go to the reception. It was my first reception where they served alcohol, so that was a new experience for me. Haha! They had dancing and it was fun to watch people that you work with dance! I danced a little too. They even had a Soul Train! I didn't know what it was called, but it is where the guys and girls face each other and the people at the end of the line dance down the middle. It was so fun to watch. One of the guys did push ups, another did a high kick. SOO FUNNY! Here is a picture of the girls I went with: Leslie, me, Devon, Jodi, Jennifer. We have Bible study together and some of us work at the same school.
Church was great today. I had nursery during Sunday School and I just love it. You know how much I love babies. And I love my pastor's preaching. Today he was trying to express how important his point was, and he kept saying, "This is BIG! This is HUGE!" I am, by all means, not teasing him, because his point was huge.
(He was preaching from Acts 10 where Peter had a vision and learned that the Gentiles were NOT unclean. They were worthy in God's sight and needed to hear about Jesus just as the Jews had. Therefore, we need to be careful not to erect barriers in the church. We don't need to be afraid of change. I hope I wrapped that up correctly!)
So, anyway, all of the emphasis of how BIG and HUGE his point was reminded me of one of the entries on Stuff Christians Like. This entry, number 136, talks about "Wake Up Phrases" that preachers use. It is hilarious, and so true. But I need these phrases because I do fade in and out at times, no matter how much I'm into the sermon.
After church a bunch of us went to eat together, and I have to say, that is one of my favorite parts of each week. My friends from church are so funny and I just love being around them. And Jill totally made my day when she said she checks my blog! (Hi, Jill!)
I went to my mom's for dinner but before we ate we went to get our nails done with Karlie. It is so fun to get your nails done although my germ-a-phobic tendencies have a bit of trouble the whole time I'm there. ;) Mom made a delicious dinner and my grandparents were there too! It was a great weekend. I'm not even dreading going to work tomorrow, summer school is so nice. I'm going to try to be a better blogger this week! I hope you have a good one!
