Tonight I went to a dinner at CBC sponsored by Ladies Missionary Fellowship Committee. The speaker was Teresa Perrine. Her husband Jack has been leading the conference this year, and they are both terrific! Tonight after we had dinner she focused her short lesson on rejoicing.

Phillipians 4:4-7 4 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again:Rejoice! 5 Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. 6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

She broke those verses up and as she read them to us and elaborated on her points she had us doodling on blank pieces of paper. Whatever came to our mind about the verse.... we were supposed to write something down or draw. This was easy for me because I love to doodle. It was like a dream come true. Someone was telling you to doodle while they were talking! I think the most interesting part of the night was when one of the women sent her paper napkin up in flames at her table. Talk about a full room of wide eyes! You could hear the napkin go *POOF* as it caught on the flame. The flame was HUGE! She finally let go of the napkin, only for it to land on a plastic tablecloth. Luckily someone at the table grabbed the pitcher of water and poured it on the firey napkin. (Lesson learned: buy flame retardent napkins and tablecloths when using candles as a centerpiece.) Talk about being fired up for God! I think everyone was rejoicing the church didn't catch on fire! Haha! It was a nice light moment and everyone had a good laugh over it..... I wish you all could have been there, but seeing as there were already 80 women there the dining room may have been too full to fit anyone else in.

Well, today was April Fool's Day. Can I just say I strongly, strongly dislike this holiday? I mean in all intents and purposes it is just a deceitful day which only causes stress. The whole day seemed like a joke to me. I did not have a very good day on clinical, and I was just waiting for someone to pop out and say "April Fool's! You should have seen your face...." No such luck, though. :( I ended the day on a good note, so I guess that's all I can ask for. Rejoice in the Lord always, right?

So..... over 100 posts on this little ol' blog. If I had been more coordinated and had enough time I would have planned a party. We could have reminisced over blogs past, shared some laughs, ate some good food, BYOC of course (bring your own comments)..... Bummer... I guess that's why I'm not the party planner in the family. Maybe I'll plan something special for the 200th....

I start teaching tomorrow. I'm feeling a little better about it, but that could all change 2 minutes before I am set to teach. I have until 10:30 to think things over and get organized. It's only a half hour of my life... how bad can it be? :/

Alright, well I better get some last minute things organized, and then head to bed. I had a long day and this week is only going to get longer with studying and such. Have a good rest of the week!

Until next time..........................
