Saturday Stuff

Thanks to everyone who's prayed for my situation as of late. Still not entirely sure what I'm doing but I'm checking into an option and waiting to hear back on it to see if it's something I can do. Other than that, I'm still not sure about what to do after the summer (I'm still praying about it as well).

Today I was over to the church to help a few of the ladies paint murals for the DVBS (Daily Vacation Bible School). There were five ladies and 3 kids painting, well one of the kids didn't paint and one of the two that were didn't paint a whole lot. Anyway, we had transparencies that we traced onto the paper and then painted in afterwards. The mural I worked on was a field scene that had a sheep pen, one sheep, a big tree and lots of sky with a couple clouds. I was working on the green fields for the first part...so much green! I am sick of green for awhile I think. I also painted the rocks and branches around the sheep pen and some bushes. The other mural I did more green bushes and started on a path, but by that time it was time for me to leave. Some of the other ladies got a couple other murals done and a couple of people stayed after most of us left to finish up on two of them.

All in all I enjoyed it. I like doing that sort of thing, and it felt nice to be helping them get ready for the DVBS program.

My nephew's birthday is on Monday, and he'll be 3. His mom's parents and family had a little party for him and his other grandfather today. His other grandfather's birthday is in a week or so I think so they just combined them. My brother and his fiance and my nephew stopped over for a little while this evening after the party so we could give our gifts to D then. I suppose we could have waited until Monday to give them to him, but he got his other presents today and rather than confuse him, we gave them to him tonight.

Work is going well. I'm getting used to the hours now, which is good. There've been a few days when I've still felt tired, but I think I am doing much better now. My neck, shoulder and down near my shoulder blade on my right side have been stiff and sore this week though. I think it's because I am sitting in front of the computer all day at work, on the computer at night, and knitting. It's all working together and making me feel lame. I use my magic bag, but that seems to only help as long as I have it on and I can't keep it on all the time. I've taken muscle relaxers, and those do help. I also haven't been doing much knitting this past week either. It's feeling bette today, but I think I'll probably be taking the muscle relaxers tonight and maybe tomorrow and that should hopefully take care of it. I don't think it is a pinched nerve or anything; it seems to be the muscles.

Well, I think I've droned on long enough. Don't want to bore anyone to death, so I'll end now. Hope you have a Christ filled day!

I hope the muscle relaxers help. Heating pads work good too. That's so nice of you to help with DVBS. I'm going to teach 5th graders this year. Pray for me for strength :) Just jokin'.

Your Sis In Christ,
