Tonight's the Night

No, not the Rod Stewart song (although, now it is running through my head...."tonight's the night, I'll do anything that you want me to....". I'll stop there).

Tonight is the Talent Show I've been rambling on about at our elementary school and I am excited! There is so much to pull together today, but I feel the grace of God for all of it! I've had the opportunity to share with some of them that I cover just about everything I do in prayer. Moms are coming over today to help prepare food in my kitchen, where on my big dry erase board, in children's handwriting it says:

You will fulfill Your purpose in me. Your love, oh Lord, endures forever. The Lord will fill you with joy and you will rejoice.

I don't know if that is an actual scripture or something that #2 came up with (the resident pastor-in-training at our house) but I love it! It encourages me when I look at it and I hope it encourages people who come over to our house, too!

So, yes, I'm a little nervous. But, it is a whole lot easier being behind the scenes then getting out on stage. When I was in Pollyanna at our church production I don't think I ate for about 3 days before opening night! Which actually was a good thing because one of my costumes was an old JUNIORS size dress. Juniors! To think I actually fit into it......after a few alterations.......

I can't wait to post the talent show details with some pictures!

Oh Melissa! I am so excited for you. I just know that it's going to be a success, that people will say stuff like, "Wow! How did she do this? This is so different! She's so different!What does she have?" You are just a walking, talking epistle! Love you and break a leg!!!

What a witness. How awesome! I can't wait until we are in the new house and I can keep people coming in and out of my house.
