I have so much going on in my head at the moment that even I get dizzy sometimes. So today I have given myself the day off....... and I am feeling extreme guilty round about now, even though I have done 4 loads of washing, watered all the pot plants outside as well as all the garden beds, I have tidied the house..........
Last week was holiday club and the theme this holiday club was Noah and the Ark, and the movie for the older children was Soul Surfer an amazing story, and even more amazing was the fact that I could tie each day of the movie into the same theme for Noah and the Ark, the movie even ends with a rainbow......... just like Noah we certainly serve an amazing God. This is the week when free of charge and child can come down to the church for the morning every day for a week, and we will feed them, entertain them and teach them. Our older youth become the teachers for a week, a lot of work, but a lot of fun and how amazing that we can share the Lord with children who do not know who he is.
The first week in August is our Woman's Retreat and the theme this year is Laughter...... we have got a laughter therapist coming to spend the first evening with us and I am now busy putting the whole weekend together.
I love to laugh ............... and am convinced the only reason I am still sane is because I can find something funny in everything. In fact I think that the only person who hated my laughing was my ex-husband when we went to funny movies or shows he would constantly be telling me to shhhhh.... shhhhhh.....ssshhhhh .............. which of course would just make me laugh more. So I have quite a lot to do in the next few weeks. I love that this ministry has grown and every year we get more and more woman who want to come, this year we are 38 so next year we will have to change venues as we have reached maximum numbers at this venue.
I have a confession ........ is it allowed to tell a policeman that he is stupid.... i stopped at the garage on the way to work on Friday to fill up......... on coffee just got to love Mug and Bean coffee the South African answer to Starbucks............ and there in the parking which quite clearly shows is a disabled parking was a police car with the "officers" and I use the term very loosely were getting out of the car, I tried I really tried not to say anything, I bit my tongue in the attempt to be quite, I wondered how many unpaid fines I might have that they would have a reason to arrest me.......... and before I realised it I said......... Good Morning Officer I see that for you stupidity is a disability................. and with the shock still on their faces i went in and ordered my coffee............ now God is awesome in front of me in the queue is another policeman......... so I bought him a choc chip cookie........ hoping that once they ran my number plates...... he would save me.............
