Oh my! You've got to have an awesome church family to be able to do all that. :o) Praying you all have a blessed VBS week, that you all feel God's presence, and that lives be changed.

Sounds like fun to me!!! Happy TT.

What fun...sounds like a kid haven. If the kids missed having a good time then it was entirely their fault.

Well good grief woman, start digging up that sand. He's probably buried under it!!! EEEK!

Sounds like a very good time.

The last church I attended had a pastor who wore jeans and a t-shirt...and the service was more meaningful than all the Catholic pomp and circumstance I grew up with.

And tonight I took my kids to Golden Corral for dinner and guess what? If you bring your church bulletin, you get a discount!

The Gatekeeper said...

Oh yeah, jeans and t-shirt--lovin' it. Direct us to the Golden Corral, Di. Thanks for the tip.

Now, if you could keep it like this all the time I think you might have something. :-)

Don't get sand on the soundboard!

And don't kill the little darlings with carbon monoxide from the BBQ...
