Let's get This Party Started!

Welcome to my party!
Please make yourself at home.
Grab something to eat and in case you haven't been to a party at my house before, it's always pot luck, so place whatever you brought on the bar and help yourself.
Drinks are over by the sink just write your name on your cup.

That's tobymac's new CD you hear, also check out the new video to my fav tby song)

tv room or hang with us. You'll notice a pile of younger kids toys in the corner and the bathroom is straight ahead down the hall.

I'm so glad you made it, please enjoy some of our favorite party snacks:
hubs- a block of softened cream cheese, spread with canned shrimp on a Ritz
Me- peanut butter brownies
early bird- Cool Ranch Doritos
Night Owl- Ice cream sundaes

Hey it's the electric slide! let's go!

Now that we've got a bit of a workout I want to tell you what happened last night. On our way from our church missions dinner, hubs and I got in a fight. Over something stupid, you'd shake you head at us if you heard the details, anyway we yelled! Both of us! Now if you haven't been around us then you'd know hubs and I don't usually yell at each other. Not that we haven't and not that we don't but it's been pretty rare lately, thank you Lord! So the yelling quickly turned to silence and Early Bird, our 13 year old, says, "Do you want to hear what I learned in Sunday School today?"

Silence from front seat.

"We learned that a foolish man vents his anger, we also learned that you should not let the sun go down on your anger."

Silence from the front seat.

We got home, silence still, and then started at each other again until we both just gave it to God, had some time alone, then confessed our sins toward the other before thanking God for His awesomeness in our brokenness.

What we didn't know is that as we were fighting my mom called and spoke with Early Bird and they all prayed together for us. We have shared our making amends with each another with the kids and got to give praise as a whole family for His answer to prayer, His goodness and His love for us no matter how much a wreck we are. Hubs and I have wondered why God gave us such "spiritual" kids, today we laughed- it's because He knew they'd need to parent us!

So welcome to the party, mingle, enjoy and don't forget to praise God for something he's done this week in your life!
