Yay! Back to youth group!

Woo hoo! Tonight is youth group for us and I haven't been in about a month because Alumni band practice was on Wednesdays.  But now that is over and I get to go back. I've missed my teens, I haven't even really seen them on Sundays because I've been in the nursery. This week will be a two-fer though because of youth group tonight and our Super Smash Bros tournament on Saturday! Stay tuned to see how we host this youth group event. See you later!  ^_^

Monday's Are Our Saturdays

People who aren't hired in ministry tend to not realize how pastors and other ministry positions don't actually have weekends off like most 9-5 type jobs. In addition to the office hours, visiting hours,  and programs during the week, Sunday is usually considered a work day. It is not at all a day of rest. Many churches don't do anything on Sunday nights,  but our church and many other Baptist churches like us do a Sunday night service and small groups.

2 Months A Mother, Reflecting

WOW. I've been a mommy for over 2months now. I can't get over it! It's already gone so fast! My little Lincoln has grown so much. I've loved every cuddle and snuggle and smile I get out of him. I could live without some of the memories of crying, diapers, and getting all kinds of bodily fluids leaked upon me, but motherhood has been great so far. ;)

For those who did know, Lincoln was born on his due date; MY birthday! What a blessing to share a birthday with my son! And a such a rare thing to be born on the predicted due date.

Giving birth was quite the experience, to say the least. Haha. It didn't go the way I wanted it to, but that's okay because I didn't expect everything to go perfectly. I wanted to do water labor and wanted to be more up on my feet, but I felt so sick and tired that day I spent a limited amount of time walking around and on a yoga ball; before it all started, I was just laying down to sleep at 6:15 a.m. and my water broke at 6:30, so I'd been up for nearly a whole day already before I even started laboring. I was exhausted before I even started.
