Now God has us where he wants us, with all the time in this world and the next to shower grace and kindness upon us in Christ Jesus. Saving is all his idea, and all his work. All we do is trust him enough to let him do it. It's God's gift from start to finish! We don't play the major role. If we did, we'd probably go around bragging that we'd done the whole thing! No, we neither make nor save ourselves. God does both the making and saving. He creates each of us by Christ Jesus to join him in the work he does, the good work he has gotten ready for us to do, work we had better be doing.

VBS - 1 day down, 4 to go

Today was the first day of Avalanche Ranch here in Glenwood. I wasn't super excited to do a VBS I've done before but it works when you don't have much time to plan:) The kids today had a blast.

We saw God answer our prayers and it's just the first day! We prayed for 30 kids and God brought 31 today. People doubted and said we'd be lucky to get 15:) God showed them:~)

Friday we put in the Chadder DVD and discovered it was cracked and had to order a new one. We had to have our order placed by noon Mountain time in order for it to get processed. So at 10:58 (11:58 MST) we got that order in, paid for next day delivery and just as we got started today it arrived.

I kind of like having VBS in the afternoon. It was nice to have the morning to go over my lessons, especially since I'm covering multiple areas:) Chaos hit at noon though when all the kids showed up. We got through it and got back on track. I also learned that they need a little longer to eat lunch so maybe game time will have to be a little shorter.

I need to go over tomorrow's lessons, check registration forms and relax. Looking forward to another great day at Avalanche Ranch!

Yippee! 31 kids! God is good!

I wonder if an afternoon VBS would work for us. I like the idea of having time in the morning to prepare... hmmm.

Praying for you this week!
