MOPS at Calvary

Here is my biggest NEW thing for 2006-2007, being a MOPS (Mothers of Pre-Schoolers) mentor at our church. I kept telling the group I wasn't old enough for the position, but for some reason they kept assuring me I was a good fit for the job! YIKES No pressure here, huh? But just look at these lovely women who have hearts for the moms of little ones.
God has certainly answered one of my prayers of "What do I do now, Lord?" I'm looking forward to a grand year of meeting and helping moms, and developing some lifelong friendships.

A Meeting of the Minds

OK, so I wasn't involved in this conversation, but it was the first time I'd seen these three sitting together, talking business, and getting excited about their vision. I had always heard about their meetings, but never got the visual. This was just last night and I have to admit it was one of the best meetings I've been to in a very long time. It was incredible to see so many in one room want what is best for those who use their service. It was so refreshing to listen to these men and women.
I thought I knew what to expect walking into the meeting, but I got blown away by the bigger picture and obvious growth of the group! So...........I tip my hat to ALL of you! Guess I should pay a little closer attention to what my husband is doing, huh.

FIRST Day of School

Here's a BIG first for me, my daughter, AND my granddaughter! Yep, it's the first day of school for my oldest daughter's oldest daughter! Got that? It was a great day and all of us were so excited.

Hey, kindergarten is for big girls!

A Miracle Baby

I crocheted this baby blanket and gave it to a couple from our church when their son, Calvert, was born. This little boy is a miracle and talk about a cutie!

Why would this be something new for me? Well, for one, I don't visit people in the hospital, but this time I did! It's good to step out of your comfort zone once in awhile. You just never know what good may come out of it.

Here's my sis and her hubby - they are trying something new, too! Look at that RV they have - a regular home on wheels. Check out their summer fun here -

Talk about something new EVERY day for them.
Try something NEW every day!

People who know me know this is one of my mottos and I do my best to accomplish this small feat every day.

So this is my 'something new' for today - a blog of my own.
