Monday Morning Brain Dump

  • I did it! I actually remembered to brain dump on Monday – thanks, Tim for the reminder. πŸ™‚
  • Last week was CRAZY! So much is going on in every area of my life right now – I am almost overwhelmed, but then I remember that God never puts more on us than we can handle and so I trust in that grace and carry on!
  • I’ve been trying to put together budgets for GAFA’s upcoming 08-09 season – trying to predict some unpredictable things has proven to be quite interesting to say the least. When God starts putting BIG, FAT dreams in your heart it requires you to think outside the box and plan with lots of faith. (tempered with a good does of practical reality, though) I can’t wait to see how He provides for this vision He has put in my heart – I can’t see how it will all come together but I am excited…
  • Reagan spent the night with Nana and Papa on Friday night so Don and I got to go on a date. That hasn’t happened in a while and we had a great time. We went to the opening concert of the Airlie Gardens summer Jazz series. This is my favorite thing to do during the summer – every 1st Friday of the month they have a big concert under the oaks. Everyone brings a picnic dinner and the kids run around and have a great time. Two of my dear friends are playing the next two months. Benny Hill (I went to college with Benny at UNCW) will be playing the 1st Friday night in June and David Pray (a wonderful friend to me and to this ministry) will be playing the 1st Friday night in August. Be sure to go check them out. Don and I will be there!

  • Saturday, we had our second Saturday tech rehearsal for GAFA’s upcoming show, “Creation”. The girls are doing an amazing job and you do not want to miss this event! Be sure to purchase your tickets from any of our students, at The ROCK, or on line HERE. You can also stop by the church/studio offices anytime and pick up tickets for the Friday night, May 16th show or the Saturday afternoon, May 17th show. They are $5 in advance or $7 at the door. Thanks to Alpha Mortgage, Perry’s Emporium, Beth Simcha, Jeff and Judy Spedding and The ROCK for their generous sponsorships of this event

  • This was the picture at my house Saturday night after a full day of work and punching off the honey-do list. Molly thinks she is a lap dog…and despite what my husband may say about this, he likes it…

  • Yesterday’s service was really great. My team did such a wonderful job leading the people into worship. I am always so honored to work with this incredible group of men and women. The set list was
  1. Let God Arise – Chris Tomlin
  2. The Time Has Come – Hillsong United
  3. For Who You Are – Hillsong
  4. Hosanna – Brooke Fraser (I never get tired of this song – and Haley, you rocked it, girl!
  • Dad continued to minister about the upcoming transition. He always does such an wonderful job of walking our people through something that may initially be difficult – he has wisdom beyond my ability to comprehend and I am thrilled that he and mom will continue to be a vital part of the life of this house even after PB is set as the senior pastor in August. I hope you are all communicating both your support and your observations to him and to Bryan. This is an exciting time and I pray that all of us will get on board and support this new season of ministry. You can download an MP3 of last week’s as well as yesterday’s message HERE by the end of the day tomorrow.
  • This week promises to be another CRAZY one! Pray for us as we countdown to next weekend and as I make preparations to welcome Baby Rylee into the world. There is much to do and I need the grace of God and the support of my family and friends to make it happen! Thanks, everyone – you don’t know how much you all mean to me!
