This is it!

Well, this is it. I can't believe it's here.

The final day of VBS. *sigh*

We end on Thursday because we start it or kick it off during the Sunday school hour on Sunday.

Our final day of VBS. *sigh*

Two things that I'm praying for....

Christian will return. I'll write about him tomorrow. I don't think I'll be able to stand it if he doesn't. And....the seeds we have planted are already taking deep root.

Please pray that for us today. I really want us to finish strong!! We do end in some fun too.
Our kids have been competing in their groups all week to see who can bring the most poptarts and cereal bars for a ministry in our area called "Snack backpack." This ministry feeds hungry children on the weekends. So.....

the group with the most items, gets to throw pies in 2 of our youth intern faces!!!! How fun is that???!!! I hope those interns show up today! :)

Our scriptural background for today's theme of Believe is the story of Thomas not believing that Jesus was resurrected when he saw him for the first time.

We need to believe in Jesus and the things he can do even though we can't see him. And, we should take note of the fact that Jesus continued to offer himself to the disciples to help strengthen their faith.

Let's not put Earthly limitations on Jesus either. Let's increase our belief and hope in the Savior and creator of the Universe.

John 20:29 "Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have come to believe."

And...one more thing...

My precious hubby sent me these darling and beautiful flowers yesterday to the church. He was loving on me and congratulating me on a successful VBS. Aaaaaahhhhhh.



And...guess where I am going tomorrow??? Come back Friday morning for some hodge podge of randomness to find out. :)

Hugs and blessings~
