On the way to Thomasville on Friday night, the moon was coming up over this "mountain" of clouds, but the clouds were moving in faster and soon the moon was covered!
A really cool thing happened that night (a God moment!!)
We were going to meet my sister Chris and her family and spend the evening together roaming the streets. We decided to wait till we got there and call them to see where they were.
You got to understand that when you get to Thomasville you just have to park wherever you can find a spot anywhere around the main event (a fairly large area) It seemed fuller than usual, but we found a spot and just as we were getting out of the van, here Dwayne's pulled into the SAME parking area!! So not only was it a miracle we parked at the same area, but also that we got there at the same time!! :) :) AWESOME!
Tamara enjoying one of T.H.'s chicken pitas served by the Meigs area churches.
The youth from that area also had a fresh made french fry stand to raise money for a future missions trip. My niece's Nicole and Carmen and nephew Tyler were helping here.
Tamara and Heidi with a "snow queen".
Saturday afternoon we went to Marianna. Some local churches bought out the local theater and were offering the movie "Courageous" free of charge to the public. It is well worth watching!!! Our families favorite part was when they caught a gang member and had to put him in the back of the cop car with Javier who was pretending to be another gang member!!! :) That was hilarious!
It was a good reminder to enjoy our children....every moment of every day!!
After the movie we ate at Pizza Hut. The kids had Book-It coupons to use :)
Today we had fellowship meal, communion and then went to sing at the local nursing home. We sang Christmas songs and the residents loved it. There is one couple I love to watch....I don't think they are married....I think they just "like" each other! :) And he has a good bass voice! :)
I enjoyed a relaxing afternoon and evening. The house feels cold, so I pulled out a pair of socks that have been sitting in my drawer feeling neglected! :)
They are super comfy!!
This week we are going to try to get in a little extra school work. Dan also finishes up a semester on Friday, then we all get a BREAK!! :) :) :) Yay, can't wait!
