A New Year
We reached 2015! It's our yearly tradition here to celebrate on the 31st, and bring in the New Year at our house with both of our local church families.This year there were around 100 people who showed up. We had verse recitation, skits, songs, 2 messages, and prayer going into the New Year. This celebration is always a highlight of good fellowship for us, and we had a blessed time together this year! Happy New Year 2015!
After this crowd left at around 2:30am...there were still 10 extra kids who stayed over night. I was surveying the aftermath of the celebration. I admit, if my house is a wreck...I don't take it well...and this was a disaster! I went to the back of the house to turn off a light..and saw another disaster before my eyes! It was 3am...I almost lost it...Two of our teen boys came out to see what I was doing. They were just looking at me like "Oh no...what's she going to do, cry?" Ha Ha! So, I told them "Turn off the light and close the door, I can't face this now!" (There's probably a spiritual application here somewhere!) But, in the morning all those kids, my 5 included, got up and cleaned the house front to back. After about an hour and a half, everything was clean and back in place...and I almost cried again! Love these people God gave us!
