Grace in Small Things #10

  1. I. love. this. song. In 1977, my class put the Commodores "Zoom" LP on the record player every chance we got! My body will NOT stay still while "Brick House" is playing!

  2. Vacation Bible School - Growing up Catholic, we didn't have VBS. My mom said I went at my grandma's church the summer I was 4, but I don't remember it. I changed church affiliations a couple of years ago and this is the first year I've been able to participate in VBS. I am, in fact, co-director of the skits (well, ain't you somethin', Miss La-Di-Dah!). Last night was the first night and it was just great. The kids are so cute - squirmy, squirrelly, enthusiastic - and I enjoy all of the adults so much! It's a very satisfying experience and the fact that it is so much fun is just icing on the cake.

  3. A 40 minute IM, then a 2 hour IM, then a 20 minute phone call with Himself in the span of 6 hours last night. Fun, silly, and very, very candid conversations. Only God himself knows what it all means, but today I am content with it. No matter what it means, no matter what comes of all of this love and confusion, Himself is a good man and I am grateful that I know him.

  4. Air conditioning. 'Nuff said, right? Right.

  5. My parents actually ASKED if they can come visit in August. Normally they just tell me when they will be here and why, which makes me feel like a hostile hostel (heeheehee I just kill me) and makes me feel taken for granted. Funny thing how asking me instead of telling me changes my attitude - I even asked for half days off while they are here!


  1. kudos on the brick house....killer tune (whos gonna argue?) I miss hearing horns in a song...if you want a real nostalgic treat ..go find earth wind and fires first greatest hits......thats REAL ear candy....

  2. Amazing how being treated like an adult by our parents changes our attitude, eh? (Damn! Must remember that more often with Shortman)

  3. I love the OW! you know, the 'She's a brick house. Ow!'

  4. I'm glad you are content with the conversations you have been having with Himself.

    Aren't the little ones wonderful? I never had VBS either, but i love working with kids.

    I think your parents are starting to see you as an adult....good for you!

  5. Dammit Ill be singing that all night now!!!

  6. I firmly believe volunteering for VBS should come with a disclaimer.

    I've done it for three years now and you'd think I'd learn. :)

  7. I think you're swell to do VBS--I remember going when I was little.
    Thanks for the earworm.
