Soooooooo Brother Clevenger led song service during the day on Wednesday, hopefully he got his phone figured out so he can see this!!! LOL AnywayZ this is the sweet and DROP-DEAD-GORGOUS SCARLETT'S DAD...(Well don't actually drop dead, at least NOT in front of me...I might feel obligated to have to give you CPR and the whole throwing up in the mouth thang just ain't cool with me! I mean I'd do it for someone I REALLY LOVED buuuuut it would definatley take LOVE for me to do that!!! Besides, although I am yearly CPR certified, the chances of me saving a life through CPR are very slim… I’d be like you know what m, PRAYER IS S LOT MORE POWERFUL!!!)
TODAY WAS ODIN'S FAVORITE MESSAGE!!!
He calls it THE CREATURE MESSAGE and NO I do not think he got anything spiritual from it, he just loved the creatures, the water guns AND THE SILLY STRING!!!.
|I think this was MY FAVORITE CREATURE!!!!|
|I KNOW SOME ACTUAL GUYS THAT ARE LIKE THIS BIRD!!! LOL I won't give them any blog shout-outs though...bahahahahahahahahahaaaa!!!!|
Okaaaaaaaaaaay sooooo don't everyone judge me, buuuuuuuuuut I ACTUALLY ASKED MY SISTER AND SISTER IN LAW at lunch that day IF IN REAL LIFE THESE ARE ACTUALLY REAL CREATURES??? They were liiiiiiiiike, MAAAAARRRRRRYYYYY!!!! How do you NOT know??? I'm liiiiiike weeeeeeeelllll, Bro. Perry is soooooooo smart I THOUGHT MAYBE they were really rare animals only smart people know about!!! Plus some of the geography was REAL, like Australia and one of the islands in Hawaii...YOU NEVERRR KNOW!!!
|Of course the kid's favorite!!! LOL|
|At The Italian Lady buuuuuuut I'm kinda done with this place for a while, I feel like their meatballs when downhill...As AN ITALIAN...I'm jus keepin it REAL!!!|
Today I was TOO TIRED to go for a hike, buuuuuuuuuuuut NOT TIRED ENOUGH for a nap...I don't take naps unless I LITERALLY just accidentally fall asleep, buuuuut even if i'm tired I'm usually NOT tired enough to ever fall asleep any time before bedtime!!!! I'm just NOT A NAPPER!!!!.
|Pre-service prayer, the Holy Ghost fell!!!|
|Somewhere in this crowd there's a little girl receiving the Holy Ghost!!!|
|Brother Foster leading song service|
|Little Brother Foster, I zoomed in for all you girls that have dreams of one day being a FOSTER CHILD...BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAA!!!|
|Go MALIA!!! SING IT GIRRRRRL!!!!|
|Sister Wilson singing!!! |
Let me tell you all something, this sista can SAAAAAAAAANG!!!
And she's also REALLY AWESOME AT TUG OF WAR TOO!!!
WOMAN WON!!! OH YEAH!!!
|Loved this message!!! "Bring me another vessel!"|
|God is looking for another vessel to fill and another and another and another!!!!|
|And we need to go get the vessels and bring them for God to fill!!!|
|MADE IT!!! Even without hiking, just really GOOOOOOD CHURCH!!! WOOT, WOOT!!!|
|AND ANOTHER VESSEL IS FILLED!!!|
Okaaaaaaaaaaaay this was actually my favorite message that Bro. Perry preached, buuuuuut the first message about being dry and doing what you really need to do to get that water was the one I NEEDED THE MOST!!!
|So Brother Perry had a really smart and itelectual, scientific, smart people title, buuuuuuut I can't remember it, soooooooooooo I RENAMED IT for the not-so-smart people, THE HOLY GHOST WAVE!!!|
Brother Perry said (Still paraphrasing peeps) that there's a wave that happens in an arena or stadium called The Mexican Wave! You know where one row at a time gets up and waves and sits back down and it moves to the row behind them and then the row behind them until it spreads to the other side and then it starts all over again...
|AND HE HAD US DO IT...|
|We were PRETTY BAD AT IT BUUUUUUUUT....|
|IT WAS A BLAST!!!|
ANNNNNND I LOVED HIS POINT!!! He said that the movement that one person started, moved to the other side of the room, without that person ever moving from their spot where they were! And how our walk with God will create waves that affect people around us. And how through prayer we can make waves and reach someone somewhere without ever moving physically from where we are. I'm just thinking about souls that are lost and backslidden that I physically have NO WAY OF REACHING THEM, buuuuuuuut I can still make waves in their lives with my prayer!!!
And He talked about with the Romeros from our church, (Still paraprasing LOL) that Sister Everleen, from her own testimony, has said that she really didn't like him and when he came to visit them, she kinda thought he was nutz, buuuuuut the one thing she couldn't deny is that when they came, PEACE CAME and when they left, THE PEACE LEFT WITH THEM!!!
And that got me to thinking that we really just never even know how just our presence is affecting people!!! Sometimes there's people that are sooooooooo annoying you think it's easier to stay CLEAR OF THEM!!!! Buuuuuuut what if your presence in their lives is their only chance of TRULY SEEING JESUS???
Annnnnnd we did lunch at Annies Bistro Again...
|We headed back to the campgrounds after lunch to watch the FUNNNN!!!|
TUG OF WAR!!!
