Ahhhhhhh, Finally Friday! I seriously thought it just might not make an appearance this week. Since it is here, however, I will honor it and list my most notable, favorite things about the week having n-o-t-h-i-n-g to do with Type 1 Diabetes (T1D).
1. Wednesday night, Dave and I had our first connection with our 'Cell Group' Cell Groups are groups of adults who meet in homes throughout the week to pursue Biblical fellowship and apply God’s Word to their lives in specific ways. In a large and growing congregation, cell groups are the primary place at the church where we can go beyond the surface and get to know others more deeply. In cell groups, we can more realistically use our gifts to serve, hold one another up in our struggles, and apply God’s Word in specific ways from church. I was great to meet some new couples and begin a routine of regular Bible study.
2. Ben and Dave put the finishing touches on their pinewood derby car for Tiger Scouts. The big race is tomorrow, so I am sure a post will be up next week describing the event.
This scenario may or may not have happened in our house ;)
3. Maddi saying she would wear a skirt. Well, okay. Let me back up this story a little bit. My dear eldest child is a girl who loves comfort and no fuss. Jeans and a T-shirt are her clothes of choice and she doesn't understand why any sane woman would choose anything fancier. SO, next Saturday she is attending a Valentine's Dance for the kids she helps out with in the special needs room at her school. She is very dedicated to these students and jumped at the chance to see and be with them at this event.
Me: "I am so glad you are going! Do you know what the dress code for the party is?"
Maddi: "Oh, I didn't think about that. I'll probably just wear jeans and a shirt."
Me: "What if it is a fancy event and you need to wear a skirt?"
Maddi: "Well, then I guess we are going shopping for a skirt."
You could have knocked me over with a feather! I am so proud of that girl for the person she is becoming.
