I just got back from Children Choir Practice and it was so good. Noel Cordova and Teresa Sarria are starting a kids choir. They are learning a song about the Ten Commandments and even in their squirming and bouncing around (as kids will do) you could just tell that they were getting it. I love kids! Then when I got home I noticed again this little note setting on our counter. The neighborhood girl who was baptized a couple of Sunday’s ago made it and gave it to my husband. Her name is Divina. She was able to come to church on Wednesday Night and I noticed that during Bible Study she was writing and writing. I knew (instinctively) that she wasn’t taking notes. 🙂 So I thought, I will have to tell her sometime that we don’t draw and color in church. 🙂 Well, that was until I saw what she was doing. She gave this to my husband after church. She got the detail of the pulpit fairly good I thought. I hope this brings a smile to your face as it did ours. 🙂 Do I still have to tell her that she can’t draw in church? 🙂

Sunday was a first at The Pentecostal Church. We had an all ladies day. Well, the men, young people and children were there but the ladies did everything. Christina Atkinson taught the adult Sunday School Class. I must say, she did a superb job. Patricia Hurst started the worship service with corporate prayer. And, oh my! She really ushered us into the presence of the Lord right from the beginning. Tina Evans and Natalie Johnson was our “ushers”. They were so cute. When the offering was to be received, they put on the ushers jackets. Everyone really got a kick out of that. Danelle Silveira led the praise and worship with an all ladies praise team to back her up. I was in awe! I know that the Lord was pleased with our praise as we sang for His glory. Cassandra Silveira was our M.C. and once again I sat back and said, WOW! Tena Valenti spoke on “The Body of Christ” and did an incredible job. She brought to remembrance, once again that we all have a special place in the Kingdom. The chorale sang, and yes, the whole chorale, men included. 🙂 You guys are just awesome. Then, my mother-in-law, Dorothy Hurst spoke and did a great job. She mostly spoke to the young about living life so that you don’t have a lot of scars when you get older. She is full of such wisdom and gets her point across in a very unique fashion. 🙂 I then ended the service with a message on, “For Such is The Kingdom of Heaven”. We had a super great time. I was proud of our ladies today. They all did such a great job in their different roles. It was evident that prayer and fasting went into this service. One of our Sunday School girls came very close to receiving the Holy Ghost. It was a great day all the way around. Next time, I will use different ladies, so if any of you are reading this, get ready. 🙂
Lipstick in School (Priceless!)
According to a news report, a certain private school
in Washington was recently faced with a unique
problem. A number of 12-year-old girls were beginning
to use lipstick and would put it on in the bathroom.
That was fine, but after they put on their lipstick, they would
press their lips to the mirror leaving dozens of little lip prints.
Every night the maintenance man would remove them,
and the next day the girls would put them back.
Finally the principal decided that something had to
be done. She called all the girls to the bathroom and
met them there with the maintenance man. She
explained that all these lip prints were causing a
major problem for the custodian who had to clean the
mirrors every night (you can just imagine the yawns
from the little princesses).
To demonstrate how difficult it had been to clean
the mirrors, she asked the maintenance man to show the
girls how much effort was required.
He took out a long-handled squeegee, dipped it in
the toilet, and cleaned the mirror with it.
Since then, there have been no lip prints on the
There are teachers … and then there are educators.
