Random Tuesday Thoughts

* It is very very cold. Outside. In my office. So, so, SO cold. I can only hope that it dramatically helps the Packer's chances against the Giants this weekend. Can we make it to the Super Bowl? I sure hope so.

* Thanks to some generous family members and fundraising I am very close to having my Mission Trip to Argentina paid for. It is one of those things I've been stressing about, as it is a significant cost that we really don't have much money for, but it goes to show that God does provide. I am not quite there but at least feel like I could pay for the rest if we had to.

* I went to the gym last night and last Friday and am going again tonight. It is a start and my motivation is back. I'm going to keep it up as long as I can. Amazingly enough, it is even *sort of* fun.

* It is wonderful to know that I have very kind and wonderful friends. The kind who do things for others, not just tiny things, but BIG ones. It makes me happy to know them all and when I add to it the generousity of my family it just makes me generally happy with the world.

* Apparently Ferret facts make for a very hot and steamy romance. Read about it here.

* Here at church, in the new budget, Children's Ministry accounts for less that 5% of the total budget (this includes figuring in my salary mind you). That seems wrong somehow. It also amazes me how much we can do with so little.

Sounds like you're having a good day, despite the yucky weather. :)

That has got to feel so good knowing your Mission trip is mostly paid for!!
Way to go on the gym. You know, when I get into it - I also really enjoy it. How funny that exercising can actually be enjoyable, huh??

I'm so happy you are reaching your funding goal for your trip, Liz. That's great news!

Good for you on the gym bit, too - it's even harder to go when it's so bitterly cold outside. Way to go!

Liz, your comment with the Psalms really did bring me to tears. Thank you for responding with words that help so much. Yes, it's not related to this post but I just wanted you to make sure you saw my thanks.
