April, already????

Is it just me or is time flying like never before? *whew* All I can say is "Hang on!". I just can't believe that it is April already! Not one person tried to April Fool me, though last night at church as Pastor Martin was beginning his lesson, he asked everyone to turn to Revelation chapter 23! Har...har! *grin* Okay, yes, I did hear some people turning the pages of their bibles! But he didn't get me! *smile*
I fixed dinner for Erin and Daniel last Thursday night for Erin's birthday. She is now the ripe old age of 25! *smile* I baked her a cake and decorated it and also baked an apple pie. We had a wonderful time of eating and visiting and I sent the kids home with lots of leftovers!

Do I need to say anything more here? *grin*
We had a family night at church Sunday night as it was the fifth Sunday of the month and we always endeavor to do something a little different when there is a fifth Sunday.
We had pizza and snacks, played games, and had a great time of fellowship. I played Scrabble with two of the precious elderly ladies of our church. Then me, Ed, Bro. Chappelear and Pastor Martin played a rousing game of Bible Trivia! Oh my word! We had so much fun and about died laughing! Some of the questions are wild! We just have to play this again sometime! *smile* It's amazing that, even though you read and study your bible, all of the little details you can miss AND those are the questions they ask! If you haven't played Bible Trivia in a while, you need to get that game out and give it a go! It is so much fun!
Nelsonville UPC had an afternoon service from 2-4pm with Bro. Mark Condon. I wasn't going to go....thinking I might need that afternoon nap *grin*.....but I decided to go and I'm so thankful that I did! Bro. Condon spoke some words that I needed to hear and that went straight to my heart! Thank you, Jesus! I don't know that I've ever heard Bro. Condon preach but he was sensitive to the Spirit and presence of the Lord and spoke many words of much-needed encouragement.
Tomorrow is my favorite day of the week!! Friday!! I pray that you all have a great weekend!
I'm going to try my best to be better at posting here! There just doesn't seem to be enough minutes in the day! :-/

I love your redecorating!

Bro. Condon spoke at a youth night many years ago, and some of the principles he spoke about music and it's affect on us, still guide Ross and I.

Give all of the kids a hug from me.
