On December 3rd, we're hosting a formal seated dinner for our Sunday School class...what we didn't realize was that the final head count would be over 100 people...like...115 people.
And we're trying to finish the library so we can clear tables, etc. of books and restore a slight semblance of order in our home (which will be absolutely fantastic!)...
We're preparing to move and stack most of our furniture in our bedroom, including the bed in the downstairs guest room...'cause we need space for lots of tables.
Because even with many who won't be able to come (we did put RSVP on the invitations) , it's sure to be a large party.
I'm pretty excited. The Engineer is laid back and go with the flow. THANK the Lord.
The "to-do" list is a mile long.
Our desire is that God be glorified in and through this evening. (Which also means I should treat my family with kindness in the days leading up to the event...)
So it's kind of busy 'round here. I can't wait! My mind is racing with ideas and excitement!
It's been a good week. Sister has made some significant progress in reading - which THRILLS my heart! Little Man had his Thanksgiving feast. Little Bit is cutting molars and that has been something terrible. The Engineer is still running. Woo hoo! He is lookin' so fine. I am still struggling to embrace the mornings sans caffeine. Oh I miss it.
I came across this list of "cannots" written by Reverend William John Henry Boetcker.
You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
You cannot help the wage earner by pulling down the wage payer.
You cannot further the brotherhood of man by encouraging class hatred.
You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than you earn.
You cannot build character and courage by taking away man's initiative and independence.
You cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves.
I rather like it.
Happy weekend y'all!
