Welllllll.....I never dreamed everyone would get so excited about it! I asked Pastor Martin if I could organize an afternoon get-together for the married couples and adults and how about if we have a chili cook-off? He gave me the old thumbs up and I made the appropriate announcements, had it put on the multi-media, and put a sign-up sheet on the bulletin board. But I just never dreamed that everyone would get so excited about it. Well, part of it might be attributed to the fact that a generous soul at church has put up $100 for the first prize chili winner! *smile* BUT, I have been reminding everyone that is is for FUN and fellowship. I've been having a little difficulty getting people to be judges because everyone I talk to wants to enter. Soooooo, I am waiting for the last person to call me today about being a judge and if she says yes, I have my three judges. Even Ed....my dear husband.....is going to make crockpot of chili and he hasn't made chili in the twenty-one years that I have known him! This should be so much fun.....really!!!! There are also several friends and family members of those who attend First Church who are going to participate! Isn't that great?
Well, I hope I can pull this all off. *sigh* Well, I will be able to because I have some wonderful people helping me and that is the only way it can be done. I'm reminded of that old Sunday School song:
"If we all pull together, together, together,
If we all pull together, how happy we'll be,
For your work is my work and our work is His work,
If we all pull together, how happy we'll be."
Soooo.....I will be busy this week getting it all together for this momentous occasion which is taking place on Saturday, November 10 at 3pm in the fellowship hall of First Church Praise and Worship Center! May the best chili-maker win!!! *smile*
