Had a nice morning at church. No negative incidents for Maegann at all for the first time in months so that was a blessing. We also found out more about the Assoc. Pastor's departure so will be interesting to watch how that plays out in the future. We were told his contract wasn't renewed due to compatibility of the staff for the future direction of the church. Regardless, I will miss him. He was the first Pastor to really give Maegann a place of service in worship and he was easy to work with for the co-op.
Isaac went to a friend's home all afternoon so that offered Tim and I a chance to work through the information we needed before our training and to begin putting a plan together to find services/therapies for him without him hearing all the things we were discussing. Nice having a start on this as it is required. Will see what our Support Broker has to offer to actually get it put together right.
I tried baking the same italian bread I made for the first time a couple weeks ago to go with spaghetti for dinner tonight. It raised beautifully but still baked only 2" tall! Now I'm researching as it calls it a Foacchia (not sure how it is spelled) bread and I'm wondering if it should be that thin. This time it did bake more evenly through the center though so wasn't nearly as gooey.
Yesterday we received the notification that one of our sponsored children had graduated from the program (we expected it anytime) and they sent a profile for one to replace her. We are now adding Rica Mae who also lives in the Philippines. She is 13. Must add "write letters and send pictures" to my list of things to do this week.
Tomorrow... co-op day. I'm ready!
NIGHT SNACKING CHALLENGE - DAY 13
Made it through another night! Had an apple with caramel again.
A time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance.... (Ecclesiastes 3:4)
Trust in Him. Have you laughed today? if not, come up with a reason and laugh right now! Trust that God wants you to enjoy life; lighten up and look for th ehumor in your circumstances today.
