Carmens The Champion

Anyone out there remember that guy! I am sure you do. My old church used to put on these dramatic mini operas with his music. He was really cool especially back in the day. Anyway Aaron found one of his songs and we played it for the kids last night. We told the they had to close there eyes and picture it in their mind. Then we talked about it and used it as a time to share a devotion and talk about the incredible sacrifice Jesus made for us.
Eli got very emotional he is very sensitive and so open to the Spirit. We prayed and had a really neat night just sharing our faith with the kids. In case you wanted to hear it again here is a youtube video. Try closing your eyes while you listen.

Easter Sunday And Guess whose Birthday!

Well tomorrow is my Birthday but we had dinner out and I got one of my gifts from Aaron. I have been trying to take a picture of it but I can't seem to get the flash to turn off.

Oh I here I got it to work! Its a past, present and future ring. I have always wanted one and for my 30 years birthday I got it! Honestly, I was so surprised. Which is unusual for me becasue I am one of those people who is really hard to surprise. I think I would have made a good spy!
You know what I did speaking of spys. I totally took 10 pictures of the kids on Easter and had no CF card in the camera! Silly Me!
