Wow, I just got shut-down.
I was denied a place on the worship team at church!
I know it's been a long time since I've performed, but wow... I am pretty shocked.
I thought God was asking me to step out of my comfort zone and do something different by serving in this way, by singing and worshiping Him. Obviously I was wrong about that. This particular worship leader seems to have some abnormally strict standards/expectations, and I guess I just don't fit into his plan.

Now I'm a little mad!!

90 day challenge

A friend just invited me to join a 90-day health and wellness challenge.
I think I have convinced myself that I am going to do it.

For starters, I will tell you what I ate for dinner:
Two scrambled eggs with peppers, onions and cheese.
A piece of whole-wheat toast with all-natural strawberry preserves on it.
And a glass of orange juice.

Foster Care Orientation

Last night was our foster care/adoption orientation class. I didn't learn anything new, but I did confirm that Mike and I will be invited to take the MAPP classes that begin in January. I am so excited to move forward in this process!!! I know that God is going to stretch and grow our family, and I can't wait to see how it all plays out. This is an answer to prayer for us. Now I am just praying that Mike's work schedule doesn't get in the way of him attending classes for ten weeknights in a row. If God wants us to foster or adopt, I am certain that He will not allow Mike's 12-hour shifts to get in the way.
